Letter from Christian B. Anfinsen to Dhirendra N. Chaturvedi
Description:
This letter to Chaturverdi reflected Anfinsen's relative uncertainty about the progress being made in establishing his new lab at Johns Hopkins in 1983 and 1984. He informed Chaturverdi that the future of the lab lacked a "definitive direction," and because of this he could not entertain requests to work with visiting scholars at that time.

Dear Dr. Chaturvedi:
Thank you for your letter of June 22. I fear that the situation has not changed since last year. I did become involved in some new research in connection with extreme thermophilic bacteria, but the project has not moved very much, and there is a possibility that the whole thing might have to be dropped. My plans for the future, therefore, are extremely vague, and I would not like to involve anyone else in work here at Hopkins until a definitive direction of research has been established. I am sorry to answer your letter in a negative way, but I think it is wiser to tell you exactly how things stand rather than have you come here and be disappointed. Good luck in your further efforts to find a stimulating and exciting research environment.
Sincerely yours,
Dr. Christian B. Anfinsen
