Professor Chris Hunter is the Herschel Smith Professor of Organic Chemistry at the University of Cambridge. I ask him what being a professor actually means, and he shares his wisdom and insight from a highly successful career in science.

It’s a career where you could do always more - there’s always more and more things that are available … I believe strongly that it’s important to focus on making sure you spend your time doing things that are important
