    BY arrangement with the London Hospital, the Medical Research Council has established there a Spectrographic Research Unit under the direction of Dr. E.R. Holiday. The primary function of the Unit is to undertake original research work in the field of absorption spectrophotometry as applied to biological problems of medical interest ; but advice and assistance will also be given to other branches of the Council's organisation using such methods. The Unit has been based on the spectrographic department originally established by the London Hospital, and during the last five years partly supported by the Council for the purposes which are now being developed.
