Minor Histocompatibility Antigens

It is appropriate at this time that we should be reflecting on the past as well as looking into the future. During this series of 20 meetings on applied immunology organised by Walter Brendel, I have enjoyed spending time with a number of people who have influenced me in science. Peter Medawar was a very strong influence on my career, and he introduced me to a large number of people, including some in this audience, and of course Walter Brendel. Peter and Walter shared, amongst other things, a terrific desire to see basic science applied to medicine. They have both in their own very different ways been extraordinarily successful in encouraging others to realise the importance of applying basic science to solving clinical problems. I thank Walter for his part in making this apparent not only to me but to a wider audience and for fostering, amongst people of different backgrounds and ages in these meetings, friendships and collaborations which have been very much in the Medawar tradition. I thank him and all his colleagues who have made these meetings possible and have enabled me to take part in the inherent enjoyment and instruction of them.
