Prof. Pavel Hozák, Ph.D., DSc., from the Institute of Molecular Genetics of the Czech Academy of Sciences, will appear as the keynote speaker at the 38th Congress of the Italian Society for Histochemistry, to be held June 14-16 on the Vulcano island. During the conference, Prof. Hozák, who was elected last year as the president of the International Federation of Societies for Histochemistry and Cytochemistry (IFSHC), plans to discuss possibilities for closer cooperation with the Italian Histochemical Society.
For the first time ever, a representative from the Czech Republic has been elected to the position of president of the executive committee of the IFSHC. This occurred on the occasion of the 16th International Congress of Histochemistry and Cytochemistry (ICHC), which took place last August in Prague.
From this position, Professor Hozák has direct influence on increasing international cooperation with Czech scientists, connecting the Czech and international scientific community, and raising awareness of the Czech scientific scene in the fields of histochemistry and related areas, such as cellular and tissue biology, molecular biology, pathology, anatomy, and microscopy.
His participation in the IFSHC also provides access to workshops, seminars, and congresses, and supports the creation of new opportunities for collaboration.
As part of his new position, Prof. Hozák plans to actively focus on supporting junior scientists and overall increasing the prestige of the IFSHC. He will remain in the president’s role until the next congress in 2025, which will move to Rimini, Italy.
