Do you have advice, experience, or anecdotes of chemists who switch from process to discovery/medicinal chemistry? I am a process chemist [redacted] and want to switch to the discovery/development side of the field.I've not heard too much about this. It seems to me that you'd have to demonstrate some knowledge, comfort or willingness to learn about the more biological aspects of medicinal chemistry.
Readers, what say you? Got any stories to tell?
