The mission of the Immunohistochemistry & Microscopy Scientific Interest Group (IHCM SIG) is to promote high quality immunohistochemistry and the development of new assays that take advantage of new reagents and techniques, state-of-the-art imaging systems and image analysis. Immunohistochemistry is one of the most widely used techniques in biomedical research, providing spatial and functional information about target molecules in cells, tissues and organs. Immunohistochemistry is constantly evolving in methodology and applications, both within the clinical and research spaces, and one of the challenges faced by researchers is the application of adequately validated assays.
The objectives of the IHCM SIG are to:
The IHCM SIG is as a partnership between the Histochemical Society and the American Society for Investigative Pathology. Members of the Histochemical Society are invited to attend all IHCM SIG events. To fully participate and be part of the SIG listserv, Histochemical Society members are invited to become an ASIP member.
