Since 1921 our laboratory has been making an attempt, with a fairly common laboratory animal, to separate any existing and separable hereditary levels of pituitary function into different races or strains. If this attempt proves successful we should be able to examine, to very great advantage, the role of the various pituitary functions in the adult life and in the whole of the ontogenetic development of the individual. It is still too early to venture a report upon this, our main, pituitary problem; but, in this prolonged and difficult task we are trying to utilize the disclosures made in this field by others, and—somewhat incidentally—we have been led to a few observations of our own.
