Research Work in Medicine.

LAHORE, WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 22, 1919

CONSIDERABLE stress was laid on the importance and value of doing research work in medicine by various speakers at the medical section of the Science Congress at Bombay. It was pointed out that there was no organisation or cooperation, nor were there adequate facilities for research or encouragement. Sir Leonard Rogers in his presidential address gave an account of his own research work in the treatment of cholera cases and showed that the efforts of medical investigation should be directed to the discovery of cure for tropical diseases. Lieutenant-Colonel Glen Liston, president of the medical section, spoke of the importance of doing organised work instead of relying on individual and isolated efforts as at present.
