Welcome Message

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Tetsuro Takamatsu, M.D., Ph.D.    On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is my great pleasure and honor to extend my warmest invitation to you to take part in the 14th International Congress of Histochemistry and Cytochemistry (ICHC 2012), to be held on August 26 - 29, 2012, in Kyoto, Japan.
    Under the theme of 'Beyond the Limit of Histochemistry', we will have ten plenary lectures, nineteen symposia, eight workshops, three journal-sponsored lectures, and poster sessions on state-of-the-art topics concerning histochemistry and cell biological sciences. We have also organized Poster Awards for young scientists and for the best picture presentation.
    We believe that the Congress will provide an excellent opportunity to review and discuss recent revolutionary topics in histochemistry and cytochemistry.
    We look forward to sharing fruitful scientific discussions and enjoyable social exchanges with you in the beautiful and historic city of Kyoto !
