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
The official journal of the Society is Histochemistry and Cell Biology.
