I love this stock photo

Via Wonkblog, an organic chemist, doing their thing. I like it.

(Funny how they're "working on a hepatitis C treatment". How does the photographer know that?)

UPDATE: Thanks to the power of Google and Anon0952pm, I see there are other pictures and a name for the "Gilead Sciences researcher." 


  1. They ain't working on Solvadi; that was all done by Pharmasset

  2. Perhaps this is an AZ chemist getting rid of the evidence!

  3. So I'm only looking at this on my phone, but this seems to me like this is an actual "working" chemist? (I think the guy is doing a prep step for a polyurea reaction, but what do I know; I've got isocyanates on my brain.)

  4. there's more if you google "david paul morris gilead"

    "Gilead Sciences researcher hoping his solvent doesn't bump on the rotovap"

  6. ..he looks pretty pissed!
