Open Call


The Society for Histochemistry is an international association of scientists which was founded in 1952. Membership of the Society is open to scientists of all countries. The Society organizes annual scientific symposia, sponsors the Robert-Feulgen Lecture and awards the Robert-Feulgen Prize. The activities of the Society are connected with histochemistry and all related fields, especially cell and tissue biology, molecular biology, pathology, anatomy, and microscopy. The official journal of the Society is Histochemistry and Cell Biology.

Robert Feulgen Prize OPEN CALL

The Robert Feulgen Prize will be awarded for an outstanding achievement in the field of histochemistry. The monetary prize to be awarded is 2,000 EUR. The contributions may be either towards the development of new histochemical and cytochemical techniques or in the application of existing technology towards solving important problems in biology and/or medicine. Addressed are scientists working in microscopical sciences (in the widest sense) as well as in biochemistry, cell biology, endocrinology, in situ molecular techniques, and neurosciences. Scientists in their mid-career, typically up to 10 years after obtaining the PhD degree (assistant or associate professor, priv. doz.) are encouraged to apply. The prize is not intended for lifetime contributions.

JOINT WORKSHOP OF THE SOCIETY FOR HISTOCHEMISTRY AND THE COST ACTION “An integrative action for multidisciplinary studies on cellular structural networks”

Prague, 23 – 24 March 2017

The workshop covers following topics:

1) Biophysics of cell and tissue structure

2) Structural analysis of biomolecules involved in mechanobiology

3) New methodologies to study mechanobiology of cells and tissues

4) Mechanobiological principles of rare and common diseases.

The aim of the workshop is to allow all interested parties to present their data and seek for prospective collaboration and networking. An extra space will be allocated for early career researchers. To register and get more information about the workshop, please visit the workshop website.
