Hunt on what he hopes to accomplish in the next decade: “Make a significant contribution to a cure for cancer.”

What his colleagues say: “Certainly, Don Hunt can be considered one of the best and/or only people to find needles in the haystack. Being somewhat envious on his achievements, I used to say to the people in my lab, when a great paper came out from the Hunt lab: ‘What Don Hunt can do, only Don Hunt can do.’ ”—Albert J.R. Heck, Utrecht University
