Letter from Shail K. Sharma to Marshall W. Nirenberg
This letter from Sharma at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences provides evidence of the collaborative nature of much
of Nirenberg's work. Sharma discusses the publication of jointly authored papers, possible summer work at NIH, and the
burden of administrative responsibilities.
I wrote you 2 letters but I have not received any reply. Hope you do not mind my writing to you again about the papers.
You can understand that after getting addicted, withdrawal is becoming very difficult. I heard about the addiction paper
from Werner that you may send it soon. I am sorry I left the acetylcholine paper in the middle, but if you think data is
not publishable please let me know. In any case, if you decide to send the papers, I hope you will send me the first draft
before it is sent to the Journal. I had also written to you tin my earlier letter that I will be happy to come for 3 months
in summer if I can do some more work on regulation of adenylate cyclase activity, and in correlation with morphological parameters.
I have not done any experiments yet. Most of my time goes in ordering chemicals and instruments.
