In Vitro Protein Folding- Future prospect or current Reality

... proteins in biotechnology (ie insulin). Our professor said that this field is huge/booming since there is such a problem with in vitro protein folding. Being a skeptic, I asked if they were able to get insulin (a multi-subunit protein) to fold and be functional, then why can't they get others ...
