Histochemistry: the Growing Science

Caxton Martins, E. A. (1997-12-09)


This inaugural lecture 'is unique in some respects; (i) being the first to emanate from the Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology of our Faculty of Basic Medical Sciences; (ii) being presented by a pioneering academic member of staff of the then Faculty of Health Sciences (the first to be recruited in 1971). Although there had been two Professors of Anatomy ~in the Department, but for some Inexplicable reason(s) it is not clear why they did not or could not inaugurate the chair of Anatomy in this University hence it has somehow become my duty, 'privilege and honor to do so.
