Tim Hunt quotes

I fought for seven years to have creche facilities at the Okinawa Institute of Science of Technology - and was ultimately successful. Less successful have been efforts to get a creche at the new Crick Institute in London, but this is something I will continue to push for.

Anyone can win the Nobel Prize if the scientist works hard on his research subject.

At the age of 14, I moved across town to Magdalen College School, Oxford, where science played a much larger role in the curriculum.

Education and research is national, not E.U., business.

I am extremely sorry for the remarks made during the recent Women in Science lunch at the world conference of science journalists in Seoul, Korea.

I am interested in how cells know what they are and how they should behave in their proper place in the body.

I did not know that I can win the Nobel Prize.

I think people love fundamental science.

I'm impressed by the economic development of Korea. And women scientists played, without doubt, an important role in it.

If UCL did offer to reinstate me, it would be churlish of me to refuse, but really, my work there was over.

In the fall of 1961, I went up to Clare College Cambridge to read Natural Sciences, with the intention of becoming a biochemist in the end.

Most great advances have been a collaboration. That is the joy of science for me.

Science is about applying what we know and asking what we don't know.

Science is about nothing but getting at the truth, and anything that gets in the way of that diminishes, in my experience, the science.

'Eureka' moments are very, very rare in my experience. It normally takes several weeks of experiments to tease out the truth, even when you have a really pretty good idea of what is going on.

I certainly don't recognise myself as the horrible sexist portrayed in media reports, and I don't think the women who have worked with me throughout my career do either.

I had hoped to do a lot more to help promote science in this country and in Europe, but I cannot see how that can happen. I have become toxic. I have been hung to dry by academic institutes who have not even bothered to ask me for my side of affairs.

I have fallen in love with people in the lab, and people in the lab have fallen in love with me, and it's very disruptive to the science because it's terribly important that, in a lab, people are on a level playing field.

I was born in 1943 at Neston in the Wirral, not far from Liverpool where my father, Richard William Hunt was a lecturer in paleography, the study of mediaeval manuscripts.

In 1968, I left Cambridge and went to work in New York with Irving M. London, who was then the chairman of the Department of Medicine at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine.

When I look around the world, I don't see too many damsels in distress. If they're a damsel in distress, they're manipulating some guy to help them. Sigourney Weaver

I really am happy that I met my agency and my management company, because they see me as a person and not just a Latin woman. Daniella Alonso
