WELCOME TO the 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

MSSA Conference NEWS

 

Our MSSA2019 conference website is live and registration is open!

BY MSSA2019

The 56th Congress of the Microscopy Society of Southern Africa, MSSA 2019, will be hosted by the University of Cape Town. The conference will take place at the Mykonos Resort (Langebaan, Western Cape) from 1 to 5 December 2019.


MSSA invites all microscopists nationally and within the Southern African region to join us at Mykonos, Langebaan, to present their research, interact with peers, and re-unite with friends and colleagues. MSSA is also the most important event to discuss the latest technological developments in light- and electron microscopy, as well as ancillary equipment, with our trade delegates and representatives at the Technical Forum and in the Exhibitor lounges. This conference is thus an excellent opportunity for lunchtime workshops and discussions with all microscopists, whether they are purchasing or sourcing information for future applications.
