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

The Robert Feulgen Prize 2014 Announcement

The Society for Histochemistry announces the Robert Feulgen Prize 2014 to be awarded for an outstanding achievement in the field of histochemistry.

The contributions may be either towards the development of new histochemical and cytochemical techniques or in the application of existing technology towards solving important problems in biology and/or medicine.

Addressed are scientists working in microscopical sciences (in the widest sense) as well as in biochemistry, cell biology, endocrinology, in situ molecular techniques, and neurosciences. Scientists in their midcareer (assistant or associate professor, priv.doz.) are encouraged to apply. The prize is not intended for lifetime contributions.

All applications should be submitted in electronic version before January 31, 2014.

Robert Feulgen Prize for the year 2013
The Society of Histochemistry congratules Prof. Yaron Shav-Tal from the Mina & Everard Goodman Faculty of Life Sciences, Bar Ilan University in Israel, to the Robert Feulgen Prize.

The Society received 10 applications this year, all of them of a very high quality. The adjucation committee after an intense discussion nominated Prof. Yaron Shav-Tal for the 2013 prize for his outstanding contributions to quantify gene expression in single cells by histochemistry.

Prof. Shav-Tal will deliver a Robert Feulgen Prize laureate lecture at the 55th Symposium of the Society for Histochemistry that is organized in cooperation with COST Nanonet Action. The Symposium takes place on 11 - 14 June 2013 in Prague.

The Robert Feulgen Prize 2012 was awarded to Dr. Andreas Römpp from the Institute of Inorganic and Analytical Chemistry of the Justus Liebig University in Giessen.
The prize has been awarded for substantial improvement of mass spectrometry imaging by combining high mass resolution with spatial resolution in the low micrometer range. This results in an unprecedented quality and reliability of information on chemical content for histological investigation, as demonstrated for a range of organs.

The Society for Histochemistry nominated Jana Rohožková from the Czech Republic to the "Young Histochemist Award 2012" to attend the ICHC 2012 - 14th International Congress of  Histochemistry and Cytochemistry in Kyoto. The Society decided to grant an additional bursary also to a young scientist at the second place - Sebastian Marwitz from Germany. Both applications were of high quality therefore we believe that participation in ICHC 2012 will broaden their knowledge and help their scientitic careers.
