Abstract : Studies of performance physiology, molecular biochemistry, lipid nutrition and metabolism, mineral metabolism and carbohydrates were conducted during the period and findings in each field are reported. Experimental surgery, histopathology and clinical pathology of lab animals, nutritional and metabolic adaptations, amino acids and proteins, carbohydrates, body composition and muscle metabolism were studied utilizing humans, dogs and small laboratory animals using various techniques. Research was conducted under the following work units during the past year: Symbiosis and intestinal flora in nutrition; protein chemistry; microbial metabolism; tissue transplantation; regulation of thyroid function and cardiovascular research. Biomedical studies include tuberculosis research, computer classification of pulmonary disability, wound healing, effects of INH on murine pulmonary histology, intravenous fat emulsion, nutritional studies of populations, radiated foods, micronutrients and nutritional physiology.
