The Laboratory of the Scottish Asylums


The conjoint Laboratory of the Scottish Asylums is now open and fully equipped for work. Already the pathologist, Dr. Ford Robertson, has made reports upon cases of special interest submitted to him for expert opinion, and on the 11th November the Scottish Division held their Autumn Meeting in the large room of the laboratory. Much care and thought have been bestowed upon the arrangements and fittings, with a view to thoroughly practical work, and all the necessary apparatus for histological research has been procured. The Scottish Division is to be congratulated upon having secured central and convenient premises in immediate contact with the Laboratory of the Royal College of Physicians at 12, Brisco Place, Edinburgh. This is beneficial to the College as well as to the asylums, since the close association of workers in science is both stimulating and helpful.
