Here is a response to the Letter to the Editor of Chemical and Engineering News we sent last week:
Dear Dr. Chambreau,
Thank you for your recent letter to the editor of Chemical & Engineering
News. We have decided to publish it, and it will appear in an upcoming issue
of the magazine. We appreciate you taking the time and interest to write it.
Chemical & Engineering News
Here’s a copy of the letter we sent:
July 28, 2005
We are pleased to write this follow-up letter to the one Bego Gerber wrote which was published in Chemical and Engineering News, Letters to the Editor, dated September 13, 2004, p. 2, titled “An ailing cure.” The suggestion to participate in an organization of chemists analogous to Médecins Sans Frontières has catalyzed the conception of “Chemists Without Borders.” We have embarked on organizing chemists to help make the world better through chemistry, initially focusing on existing vaccines, as mentioned in the previous letter.
We invite other chemists and scientists to contact us and help us grow this organization into an internationally effective humanitarian relief organization. We will promote and facilitate the funding and implementation of chemical technologies to help where they are needed most.
Bego Gerber, Campbell, CA
Steven Chambreau, Royal Oak, MI
Keep an eye out! I hope this will get quite a response!
