A detailed review of the field was not the purpose of the presentations. Dr. R. H. Nimmo-Smith discussed “The application of biochemical techniques to parasitology.” His presentation covered culture of parasites, techniques for quantitative study of cellular metabolism, techniques for histochemical localization of enzymes and biochemistry in relation to chemotherapy.

Dr. W. Mulligan discussed “The use of ionizing radiation and radioisotopes in parasitology.” Work with (which should be designated as ) and was outlined. Some of the variables encountered in irradiation procedures and use of radioisotopes were very adequately covered.
