McCulloch, Ernest Armstrong


This series contains records mainly relating to experiments undertaken by Dr. McCulloch and his research team. The alpha experiments are CFU repression experiments, and the related AB experiments are very early repression studies on the definition of the phenomenon. The AB, FAB experiments conduct further studies on immunology with an emphasis on early cellular immunology, while the “current experiments 609” mark the beginning of cellular immunology experiments at the University of Toronto. The D series consists of early radiobiological experiments. Radiology and the beginnings of studies of the heterogenetic model leads to the SC model. The SC series contains Connie Eaves' studies on repression, while the SC, D and E series contains important early experiments. The VV84-129 experiments compare the culture results that lead to the development of new technology.

The DII experiments study multiple transplants and the effects of same. The F1-F45 experiments contain Edith Russell's compilations. The L1-37 experiments study the effect of endotoxins, etc. on the spontaneous growth of colonies after radiation. The N1 and N2 series contain the earliest cell culture experiments. The NA series is comprised of early cell cycle experiments and the PF experiments conduct further studies in cell separation. The PG experiments study cell separation using propylyne glycol.
