Letter from Christian B. Anfinsen to Ioan Aurel Nicolau
Anfinsen responded to an inquiry from Nicolau with this brief letter to the Romanian lawyer. It is likely that the enclosed
publication that covered Anfinsen's work in protein chemistry was his 1984 presentation at a symposium on biochemistry
at the State University of New York (SUNY) at Stony Brook.

Classical Protein Chemistry in a World of Slicing and Splicing (May 1984)
My choice of profession was due principally to the fact that although my father wanted me to go into engineering, I decided
that I preferred chemistry, and proceeded in college and graduate school to specialize in this area of science. I enclose
a publication which covers a good deal of the work that was carried out over the years. It does not, of course, include everything,
but it will give you some idea of the kind of efforts that we put forth in connection with the Nobel Prize that I won in 1972.
