|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.
THE AIMS OF THE SOCIETY ARE:
- Advancement of histochemical methodology and new developments in the field by organizing highly-quality sessions at symposia where top scientists present their latest findings
- Stimulation of contacts between the novice and the more experienced young scientists on the one hand and the celebrities on the other
- Creation of a platform where the young scientists can present their data and expose themselves to the top players in the field
- Association with the top journal in the field of histochemistry "Histochemistry and Cell Biology"
- Organization of workshops where specific methodology is exposed step by step to help young histochemists to apply valid methods and techniques
- Stimulation of the development of new approaches in histochemistry such as live cell cytochemistry, nanoparticles and single molecule cytochemistry
The symposia of the Society are organized around a specific hot topic every year with special attention to methodological aspects. Besides, symposia have satellite workshops on specific methodological topics, which are predominantly meant to help students and young scientists to extend their histochemical knowledge.
