Interview with the 2001 Nobel Laureate in Physiology or Medicine Tim Hunt, at the 57th Meeting of Nobel Laureates in Lindau, Germany, July 2007. The interviewer is Adam Smith, Editor-in-Chief of Nobelprize.org. Tim Hunt talks about the important pathways in his life: his route from experimenting at school to scientific research, his talent for seeing the side paths in science (24:57), the road that led from initial discovery to his breakthrough experiment (30:51) and how it was sheer luck that no-one else had done this (35:18), and the future directions of cell biology (41:25) and research in Europe (51:27).
