MSSA 2017 Conference
4 – 7 December 2017
Forever Resorts Warmbaths – Bela Bela – Limpopo.
Welcome from OC Chair
Dear MSSA Delegates,
This year the Electron Microscope Unit of the Sefako Makgatho Health Sciences University will be host to the 55th Annual Congress of the Microscopy Society of Southern Africa (MSSA 2017). The conference will take place at the Conference Centre of Warmbaths, A Forever Resort (Bela-Bela) from 04-07 December 2017.
The mission of the Microscopy Society of Southern Africa: ’To promote and develop microscopy and associated techniques at all levels in the Southern African region’ encourages interaction within all fields and disciplines.
We would therefore like to invite all microscopists nationally to join us at Warmbaths, A Forever Resort to present their research, interact with peers and re-unite with friends and colleagues. It is also the most important annual event to discuss the latest technological developments in light- and electron microscopes as well as ancillary equipment with our trade delegates and representatives at the Technical Forum and the Exhibitor lounges.
We invite you to make use of this ‘one-stop’ opportunity for lunchtime workshops and discussions whether you are purchasing or sourcing information for future applications.
We encourage you to support the Microscopy Society in their effort to encourage scientific collaboration and participation between disciplines utilizing microscopy within Southern Africa and help to contribute to a great edition of our printed Proceedings!
We hope that you will be able to join us at the MSSA 2017 conference,
