Annotation by Joshua Lederberg:
KW: Comment on Nossal paper on basic biomedical research
(probably for WHO -TDR); criticizes it as elitist, insensitive
to socio-political factors in health, and ill-informed about
realistic needs of LDC's.;

" I believe that Nossal's concepts
of basic research as applied to tropical medicine 
are basically those of a
laboratory theoretician with insufficient 
appreciation of realities in the field.:"
