About us
The purpose of the Microbiology in Schools Advisory Committe (MiSAC) is to promote the teaching of microbiology in schools and colleges.

Founded in 1969, it consists of experts who work voluntarily as representatives of the wide range of educational and scientific organisations that sponsor its activities.

MiSAC develops and publishes new ideas for the educational use of micro-organisms, including practical activities, answers queries, gives talks, contributes to training courses, interacts with examination boards, science suppliers, publishers and industry, and is a recognised authority on the safe use of micro-organisms.

The popular MiSAC annual competition, supported by sponsorship from professional organisations and industry, is closely linked to the National Curriculum.

MiSAC has charitable status.
