Lindquist is best known for her research of the protein folding. Molecules of proteins are made from sequence of small building blocks, the amino acids. Same sequence of amino acids can have different shapes. Lindquist proved, that these different shapes react differently. Her other area of interest were prions, infectious agents composed entirely of a protein material.
