Microbiology Society

MicroSoc is the NUIG society for microbiology for undergraduates, postgraduates and staff. The society is open to all and we organise number of different types of events during the year. We have lots of social events and also host a number of more strictly microbiologically-related lunch-time seminars.

Check our dashboard for upcoming events, and if you've any suggestions about activities or seminar topics, you can contact the society at

Microsoc have organised a trip to Terryglass in North Tipperary to go Paintballing on Saturday the 6th April. A bus will be leaving college at 11AM (TBC) to take us to the paintball centre where we will have about 2-3 hours on the course. There will be some food provided afterwards in the local pub before the bus picks us up. We should be back in Galway around 6PM and we’ll be having a bit of a get-together in Kelly’s that evening (even more food provided!!). The cost for the whole day is €30 and if you’re interested in going there will be a sign-up sheet in the Microbiology Common Room or you can email the society. We’ll be looking for a deposit of €10 to secure your place by this Friday (15th). Deposits can be handed to anyone on the committee.
