Welcome To Microscopy Society of Southern Africa


OUR MISSION

 

To promote and develop microscopy and associated techniques at all levels in the Southern African region


The microscopy society of Southern Africa is a non-profit organisation dedicated to furthering microscopy in the broadest sense in all branches of science within the Southern African region. 


The Society was founded as the Electron Microscopy Society of Southern Africa (EMSSA) in 1962 and became a formal member of IFSEM (the International Federation of Societies for Electron Microscopy) in 1966. 


The primary objectives of the Society are

  • To further microscopy and related topics in all branches of science
  • To arrange meetings of microscopists (and workers in associated disciplines) in Southern Africa
  • To act as liaison between members of the Society and the IFSEM or other bodies.

This is achieved mainly through

  • an annual meeting of the Society
  • publication of a Newsletter [MSSA NEWS]
  • maintenance of an Instrument and Skills Database
  • the establishment of regional groups with closer co-operative ties

Feedback from the winner of the ALS/JEOL Most Promising Microscopist Award 2014

BY MSSA

I remember applying to the MSSA conference on the insistence of my supervisor. I was reluctant to attend, since I was only in my honours year and I had never attended a conference before. I presented a poster of my project entitled “Investigating Tau pathology in an in vitro model for Alzheimer’s disease”. The conference was enough of an experience to me alone. So I never thought I would walk away with any award, never mind the top prize of “Most Promising Microscopist”.
