HISTORY of the society

An historical international workshop in Philadelphia, initiated by Dr. Giulio D’Angio from the University of Pennsylvania Hospital, convened on May 16, 1985, and led to the foundation of the Histiocyte Society. Participants numbered 15 at this inaugural meeting; membership has subsequently grown to approximately 220 scientists, physicians, and nurses. This international society has provided a forum for the exchange of information and a framework for organized activities of fundamental importance.
