I find it very difficult to summarize the proceedings of these past two weeks. In this School we have heard papers ranging from discussions of the synthetic methods available for the preparation of macrocycles to statistical mechanical and thermodynamic interpretations of heat capacity data for proteins. As I understand it, a major aim of this School has been to bring together people who work with small molecule systems which may serve as models for biological systems and people who work with actual biological, or at least biochemical, systems, and to give the students in the School the opportunity to observe this interaction taking place. I have decided, therefore, to limit my comments to a matter which has received little or no attention here — the difficulties inherent in devising models for biochemical and biological systems.
