Conclusion

Half a century ago, biochemistry was regarded as being a bit esoteric and of limited interest for the society. The family of biochemists was so relatively small that almost all in the field knew each other, or at least knew of each other. Looking back over the many years, it is overwhelming to recognize the enormous development of biochemistry in this period. It has been a greatly awarding intellectual experience and a great privilege to have had the opportunity to try to follow this progress. This holds especially for the events that led to the discovery of the structure of the most fundamental biological macromolecules and to the unraveling of the mechanism of their biosynthesis.

I have been very privileged to have had great scientists as my mentors and to have had many gifted and devoted colleagues of whom several have become my close friends.
