We are people who do microscopy or want to learn about it. Our club is very diverse: physicists, biologists, computer scientists, and DIY geeks. We meet monthly and talk about ray and wave optics, old and new microscopy methods, fluorescent probes, cameras, objectives, etc. Volunteers and guest speakers are welcome!
