The Biology War Committee


    THE Biology War Committee was formed more than two years ago with the object of establishing a clearing-house through which ideas or knowledge relating to war-time biological problems could be exchanged between biologists and the Government. In order to ensure the closest liaison and co-operation, the Committee was linked to a special Joint Committee of the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research, the Medical Research Council, and the Agricultural Research Council. Moreover, it was agreed that while the Biology War Committee should cover the main fields of biology, medicine should be excluded and that representation should be weighted in favour of those fields which were not highly specialized and in which workers were not already closely linked with the three Government research councils.
