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.  

Biographic, demographic, and scientific diversity in governance is an overarching goal of The Histochemical Society, and the HCS Council seeks to appoint members to committees who represent this diversity.
