The Histochemical Society Has a New Look
BETHESDA, MD—The Histochemical Society (HCS) is the premiere professional society for scientists who share 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. This fall, HCS has a new logo and a redesigned website to better reflect the importance of histochemistry in current biomedical research.

Color and form have always been integral to the work of histochemists. The new logo and website reflect 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. 

The Histochemical Society fulfills its mission through publication of the Journal of Histochemistry and Cytochemistry, and through the management of annual meetings and short courses. The society offers meetings, courses, and awards to its members and other individuals whose research demonstrates a greater understanding and application of histochemical techniques. Researchers at different stages of their careers can apply for awards, attend courses, and collaborate at meetings.
