About this talk
Many scientists became scientists because they were influenced by an inspirational teacher. Murray argues that while this should be reason enough to teach, there are also other, more selfish, reasons. These include attracting good students to your lab, as well as being able to explain to someone you meet at a cocktail party what it is that you really do.
