A welcome from the organizers

On behalf of the Society for Histochemistry, it is our great pleasure to invite you to the 16th International Congress of Histochemistry and Cytochemistry in August 28 – 31, 2022, Prague, Czechia. Although the Congress had to be postponed twice due to COVID-19 pandemic, we deeply appreciate your lasting interest in this event, which brings the worldwide histochemists together to exchange information, closely cooperate and contribute to scientific progress.

We hope to hold the ICHC 2022 fully on-site by the time of late Summer, which will allow us to gather around and enjoy the inspirational presentations, discussions and authentic interactions with participants from all over the world. All of this in the heart of Europe, amidst many breathtaking historical buildings, charming monuments and the majestic Vltava river running through. An experience that is impossible to get via a virtual conference. Do not miss the chance to explore the picturesque city of Prague with its unique atmosphere and make opportunities for international collaboration.

We are looking forward to meeting you in Prague in August 2022!

Prof. Assoc. Hinke Multhaupt, President of the IFSHC
Prof. Klara Weipoltshammer, President of the SfH
Prof. Pavel Hozak, Chair of the Local Organizing Committee
