CONFERENCE ON HEMOGLOBIN OPENING REMARKS Dr. Irving M. London: In opening this Conference on Hemoglobin, I should like to welcome you and to express the appreciation of Dr. Edsall, Dr. Cartwright, and myself to all who have come. We are grateful to you, and we particularly appreciate the participation of our friends from other lands who have come long distances to be with us today. We are deeply indebted to those members of the professional and secre- tarial staff of the Division of Medical Sciences of the National Academy of Sciences-National Research Council who have carried the responsibility and burden of the administrative organization of this Conference. . I should like now to introduce Dr. Carl Moore, Professor of Medicine at Washington University and Chairman of the Subcommittee on Blood and Related Problems of the Division of Medical Sciences, which is sponsoring this Conference. Dr. Carl Moore: My function is a very brief and a very pleasant one to express again to all of you the appreciation of the Subcommittee for your willingness to participate in this session and the thanks of the Academy-Re- search Council's Division of Medical Sciences in general for joining us in this discussion. I also want to express our extreme gratitude to the National Heart Institute of the National Institutes of Health, who supplied the sup- port which made the session possible. In order not to take up any more time, I will merely introduce the first speaker on the program. After he has finished his presentation, he will take over as chairman of the morning session. Dr. John T. Edsall of Boston will speak to us on the current ideas on the structure of hemoglobin. rev
