CIBA Foundation Symposium on Pulmonary Structure and Function

By A. V. S. De Reuck; Maeve O'Connor | Go to book overview

PREFACE

THE seed that grew into this symposium was first planted during a conversation between Dr. Dickinson Richards and Professor John McMichael, which occurred during the Ciba Foundation's Tenth Anniversary Symposium on "Significant Trends in Medical Research" in 1959. Dr. Richards visited the Foundation again in the following year, when the Director warmly grasped the opportunity of bringing this seed to germination by discussing with him the general outlines of the plan for the proposed meeting. The subsequent details were entrusted to Dr. Philip Hugh-Jones, for whose collaboration in organizing the symposium the Foundation is especially indebted. The Editors also wish to thank Dr. Lynne Reid for some valuable assistance when the discussion was being prepared for the press.

It was extremely fortunate that the date in July 1961 chosen for the symposium fell in the week preceding that later selected for the J. S. Haldane Centenary Celebrations arranged in Oxford on behalf of the Physiological Society by Dr. D. J. C. Cunningham, since this enabled several overseas members of the symposium to go on to Oxford and so to kill two birds with one stone.

It has always been the policy of the Ciba Foundation strictly to limit the numbers invited to its meetings in the vital interest of that intimate atmosphere necessary for the free and informal exchange of ideas. This self-denying ordinance creates its own problems, but rarely have they been so acute as in this instance, with so wide and rich a field of research workers to choose from. It was thus particularly gratifying that the Section of Experimental Medicine and Therapeutics of the Royal Society of Medicine organized a meeting on the day after the end of the symposium, at which some of the. Foundation's eminent overseas guests could speak before a much larger audience.
