The Histochemical Society Mission Statement

The Histochemical Society is an organization of scientists sharing a passion for the development and use of visual techniques that provide biochemical and molecular information about the structure and function of cells, tissues and organs and for the dissemination of this knowledge through education and outreach.

The Society fulfills its mission through publishing its Journal, the Journal of Histochemistry and Cytochemistry, and through the management of annual meetings and short courses.


HCS Logo

Color and form have always been integral to the work of histochemists. The HCS logo reflects this. The new logo is designed to showcase the dynamic nature of HCS: the connected circles form an abstract representation of what is seen through a microscope. The logo evokes a hexagon shape without a rigid border, keeping the organic nature of the positive and negative space intact.
