Dear Marshall:
The 4th International Congress on Cyclic Nucleotides is to be held in Brussels from July 22-26, 1980. At a recent meeting of the Organizing Committee, a tentative program was set up for the Congress. I proposed your name as one of the speakers and it was enthusiastically and unanimously accepted by all the members of the Organizing Committee. You should be receiving a letter from Professor Jacques Dumont of the Free University of Brussels formally inviting you to participate. However, I am writing this informal letter of invitation on behalf of and at the request of the Organizing Committee to indicate how pleased we would be if you were to accept this invitation.
It is anticipated that more than one thousand scientists will attend this meeting. The proposed program for the neurobiology symposium includes Drs. Bockaert, Benzer, Hamprecht, you and myself. I know that a presentation of your beautiful work, of the sort you gave at the Gordon Conference, would have a most exciting impact on the Congress.
I greatly enjoyed our discussions at the Gordon Conference and should be in touch with you within a few weeks concerning the collaborative program. I do hope that within a short period of time we will have greatly improved the methodology for quantitative analysis of Protein I.
Thanks again for your excellent contribution to the Gordon Conference.
With best wishes,
Yours sincerely,
Paul Greengard
Professor of Pharmacology
