Chemical Nature and Biological Specificity of the Substance Inducing Transformation of Pneumococcal Types: Abstract (April
Chemical Nature and Biological Specificity of the Substance Inducing Transformation of Pneumococcal Types (April 12, 1946)
In regard to the meeting of the American Chemical Society at Atlantic City April 12, I am very happy to say that Dr. McCarty
has agreed to present our work on the transformation of pneumococcal types.
The title of the paper might read as follows: "Chemical Nature of Substance Inducing Transformation of Pneumococcal Types,"
by Maclyn McCarty. While I
appreciate the spirit in which you write, I feel it would be quite superfluous for my name to appear on the program.
I have not yet received from Dr. Brand any further details regarding the preparation of an abstract or plans for publication.
The tentative program looks
interesting, and I am sure the meeting will be both interesting and successful.
