Advances in immunohistochemistry and cytochemistry
Current immunohistochemistry and cytochemistry include a wide range of techniques to localize and characterize various biologically relevant molecules (e.g., nucleic acids, lipids, prions, drugs, ...) in cell culture, tissues and whole organisms. This field also represents the forefront where new techniques are developed and tested, for them to be later adopted in other areas of biomedical research. This symposium will showcase recent advances in the design of molecular probes and detection of a variety of biologically active molecules in cells and tissues.
