ATOMIC ENERGY COMMISSION
Life Science Research Contracts.—
The U. S. Atomic Energy Commission announced, Sept. 25, the award of 48 unclassified life science research contracts in the fields of medicine, biology, biophysics, radiation instrumentation, and special training. The contracts were awarded to universities and private institutions as part of the AEC's policy of fostering research and development in fields related to atomic energy as specified in the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, and as amended in 1956. Twenty-one of the awards, each of which covers a period of one year, are new projects; of these, 5 are in the field of medicine, 12 in biology, one in biophysics, and 3 in special training. Twenty-seven contract renewals for one year were awarded to allow for continuation of research already in progress. Fourteen of these are in the medical sciences, 10 in biology, 2 in biophysics, and one in radiation instrumentation.
