Pharmaceutical chemistry offers a wide variety of opportunities in pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device companies. Most chemists use their research skills to formulate, produce, characterize, and analyze new compounds for specific applications. The professionals in the field can also assume regulatory positions like reviewing drug applications at the regulatory bodies.
The pharmaceutical chemists are mainly involved in finding new cures and discovering new molecules
through a wide variety of techniques like CADD, high-throughput screening, combinatorial chemistry etc.
Many Pharmaceutical chemists start out in the lab and then move on to other laboratory career such as process
chemistry, formulation chemistry, quality control or quality assurance. They may also move to
nonlaboratory careers such as regulatory affairs, intellectual property (patents), project management, or
