Q Fever Study Station.—
The California State Department of Public Health has opened a new field station on the Davis campus of the University of California to study the distribution and transmission of Q fever found in California livestock. Investigations are under way to determine the manner in which the disease spreads from animals to humans and the effect of the disease on the animal hosts. The work will be carried on under the direction of Drs. Edwin H. Lennette and William H. Clark, both of Berkeley. The field station will be under the supervision of John B. Enright, Ph.D., assistant head of the Viral and Rickettsial Disease Laboratory, California State Department of Public Health. Dr. Enright has been studying Q fever for the past two and a half years.
