Historical Background

The Microcirculatory Society was organized in 1954; Edward Bloch served as its first president. It was organized from isolated and independent groups or individuals concerned with research on microcirculation. The Society first met in conjunction with the 67th annual meeting of the American Association of Anatomists. The conference was conceived and implemented by Edward Bloch, Department of Anatomy, Western Reserve University (now Case-Western Reserve) and John W. Irwin, Department of Medicine, Massachusetts General Hospital and subsequently Director of the Microcirculatory Laboratory, Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, Boston. The Society has met every year since then, with researchers being invited to present their findings and to discuss the latest news on microcirculation. At the second conference in 1955 the members voted to incorporate and hold separate annual conferences.
