In November, 1949, the Josiah Macy, Jr., Foundation brought together for a two-day conference on the adrenal cortex a group of outstanding investigators from various branches of science. This volume is a verbatim record of their informal discussions as they explored the physiological and biochemical alterations associated with the administration of adrenal cortical hormones in an effort to determine their value.

To anyone interested in this field the following list of those who shared their research experiences in the round-table discussions will suffice to indicate the high scientific level of the material contained in this small volume: C. N. H. Long, New Haven, Conn.; Elaine P. Ralli, New York; Walter Bauer, Boston; Konrad Bloch, Chicago; J. W. Conn, Ann Arbor, Mich.; E. Gellhorn, Minneapolis; Dwight W.
