Pursuing a Career in Pharmaceutical Drug Development
Posted November 05, 2020
The pharmaceutical research and development industry is a viable option for early-career scientists looking to transition out of academia. It takes roughly 10-15 years for a single new drug to make it onto the market, with millions of dollars spent from ideation to clinical trials. This complex discovery and evaluation cycle requires diverse expertise to ensure a robust analysis of drug efficacy.
On August 18, 2020, two scientists joined the New York Academy of Sciences to discuss their career paths from academia to pharmaceutical research and development.
