Where the Future? Part II — Round Table Discussion

  • Marvin A. Schneiderman
Part of the Basic Life Sciences book series


During the course of this meeting while trying to find some meaningful way to summarize what had been said, I found myself writing several outlines for these remarks. As I wrote each one, I found upon listening to another two or three stimulating and provocative speakers that the outline had to be put aside — and a new one written. As a consequence, these remarks constitute a “no latent period” paper: the exposure lasted for three days, and this response comes immediately thereafter. The toxicologists will recognize what we have here as an acute disease-type response rather than a chronic disease-type response. That means there should be place for substantial afterthoughts, after these thoughts.
