MSORV is a local affiliated society of both the Microscopy Society of America (MSA) and the Microanalysis Society (MAS). MSORV has members throughout Ohio, focusing on the Columbus – Cincinnati – Dayton regions, as well as reaching to Indianapolis, Indiana, and the Northern Kentucky area.

We are continuously striving to build the ties of our regional microscopy community. This community includes professional microscopists in academia, industry and government, commercial microscopy vendors, and students. Our society welcomes and encourages all individuals with an interest in any form of microscopy, to join MSORV and participate in our semi-annual meetings. We each rely on the others to support, develop, and move microscopy into the future.

We plan our meetings for April and October of each year and include local and nationally known experts discussing current innovations, as well as various and interesting topics in the microscopy field. Meetings also feature vendor and student presentations. Refreshments are provided along with the opportunity to network with others having similar interests. Please check our website for announcements and information on upcoming meetings.

Please feel free to contact me or any other officer for additional information on our local microscopy society.
