Dear Marshall,
Just a note to say thank you for that superb speech and your coming to Dallas in the first place. I meant what I said in the introduction that I believe the use of cell lines has made neurobiology accessible to biochemists. You opened the door and I believe many will follow in your footsteps in the years ahead. The new results are particularly exciting.
Many thanks
Cordially,
Dan.
