Vision and Mission

The purpose of the Microscopy Society of Singapore is to promote awareness of microscopy, encourage informal exchange amongst members who are interested in microscopy, and organise activities related to microscopy. With a membership of approximately 50, the Society is actively involved in promoting scientific meetings, providing scholarships for members to attend conferences, and hosting workshops organised by its own members.

The Society welcomes new members, and encourages members to be actively involved with the Committee in organising microscopy-related activities and events.

Our Logo

The society logo was designed by Mr John Chia Lam San (former Principal Laboratory Officer from Department of Pathology, Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, NUS,  in 1994 during the MSS Logo competition. The overlapping discs in various shades represent some of the different types of illumination in microscopy) from dark field to bright field), and in various magnifications. Together they represent the eye which is the most important optical feature in any kind of microscopy work.
