President’s Blog – June 2017

June 30 2017 by Ian M. Anderson
Dear MSA Colleagues, I am using my June blog to encourage you to support the programming of the Society’s Student Council (StC) by using a new feature on the MSA website. As shown above, we now have a Donate button prominently highlighted in the website banner. The Society had developed this feature to allow individuals or organizations to support MSA’s mission over and above their annual dues, and the plan was to debut this at the 75th anniversary meeting. However, since several individuals have asked about the possibility of sponsoring the StC-organized Inaugural Pre-Meeting Congress (PMC) for Early Career Professionals, we have rolled this out a month early to allow MSA members to do so. Any funds donated during the month of July will go to support the Student Council’s PMC.

President's Blog - May 2017

June 06 2017 by Ian M. Anderson
I am dedicating my May blog to highlighting MSA’s 75th anniversary meeting, Microscopy & Microanalysis (M&M) 2017. The June 26th early registration deadline is fast approaching, and rooms in two of the meeting’s bloc hotels are fully booked. We have recently contracted for additional rooms in the Magnolia Hotel adjacent to the Convention Center to increase the space available for meeting attendees. Please join us in celebrating this historic meeting for the Microscopy Society of America (MSA)!

President's Blog - April 2017

April 27 2017 by Ian M. Anderson
On Earth Day, April 22, my wife Letty and I attended one of the 600+ rallies held worldwide as part of the March for Science. The nearly three-hour rally featured remarks given by 20-30 individuals – scientists, educators, medical professionals, and science enthusiasts – who spoke in support of sustained government support for scientific research and the continuing role of evidence-based science in policy discussions. My most significant take-away from this event is that we scientists need to better communicate the work that we do to ordinary people.
