The British Microcirculation Society

The British Microcirculation Society was founded in July 1963 "to advance the study of circulation of the blood and other tissue fluids especially, though not exclusively, in the small vessels and of matters relating thereto". The membership of more than 250 is drawn largely from the medical sciences - anatomy, biophysics, pathology, pharmacology, physiology and clinical medicine and surgery - but the pharmaceutical industry and the veterinary and physical sciences and mathematics are also represented.

BMS 2015 - University of Manchester

We are delighted to welcome you all to the 65th annual meeting of the BMS.  This meeting will focus on "Imaging the Microcirculation" and will showcase a number of currently used, cutting edge and developing technologies and methodologies for imaging the microcirculation - it's a must for all microcirculation enthusiasts!  Imaging the microcirculation is key to our understanding and management of microvascular and cardiovascular disease. Widening knowledge of existing and novel techniques for imaging the microcirculation will enable knowledge transfer to both younger and more established members of the microcirculation community. We are hoping to welcome attendees from a range of backgrounds (development and application, scientific and clinical) in order to facilitate greater understanding of the technology available and of what those applying the techniques would like to have available in the future. Thus together we can close the gap and increase progression in the study of the microcirculation.
