Immunologic Aspects of UV Carcinogenesis
I am most grateful to the Association Internationale de Photo biologie for permitting me to honor the memory of Dr. Edna Margaret Roe. Dr. Roe was interested in the broad application of radiation research to the solution of biological problems. In keeping with her interest, it seems quite appropriate to address one very specific aspect of this topic which concerns the use of UV radiation to investigate fundamental processes in carcinogenesis and immunology.
