In this chapter from a symposium anthology, Anfinsen presented the state of protein research, specifically the scientific
research on the relationships between the structure of protein molecules and their biological activity. He concluded that
scientists had obtained a body of information on proteins that would allow for the next stage of research on the effects of
modifications on the functional capacity of protein molecules. He concluded his address with several questions that were
intended to steer the direction of subsequent research on protein structures.
