Dr. Chris van der Loos will be remembered as one of the world experts in immunohistochemistry, most notably for multiple immunohistochemical staining in conjunction with spectral imaging.
Chis contributed to many journals, received various prestigious awards, and was a notable presenter of many IHC workshops. He was a wonderful teacher, conducting intensive multiple staining courses in his laboratory, throughout Europe and at National Society for Histotechnology Symposium/Conventions since 2002. He loved to teach multiple IHC staining and always took the time to help individuals solve their IHC problems and/or share his expertise. His innovative IHC methods are legendary and highly practical and he taught these with great enthusiasm. The technology he practiced and shared will be a legacy for immunohistochemists for many years.
CSH sends their condolences to his family and friends.
Chris will be missed!
