Response to Sir Tim Hunt’s comments at the World Conference of Science Journalists in Seoul

In his talk at the World Conference of Science Journalists in Seoul, South Korea, Sir Tim Hunt was speaking as an individual. His reported comments in no way reflect the views of the Francis Crick Institute. 

Sir Paul Nurse said: "As the inaugural Director of the Crick, I intend to create opportunities for talented female researchers to grow their careers. The Crick will be a leader when it comes to supporting women in science." 

The Crick is committed to full equality in the workplace; we will not discriminate against women and will actively support them at all levels of their careers.
