Due to modern achievements in science, and increasing public support, medical research in the United States is gaining a strong foothold, particularly in the areas of cancer and heart disease. Medical research work demands the best available efforts from many different fields of science. Chemistry has and will continue to play a dominant role. Only in recent years, however, has the science of electronics emerged to· a place of major significance. The measurement of biological functions by means of extremely sensitive electronic methods presents a vast new horizon otherwise unattainable in the search for medical knowledge.
