The challenging and dynamic world of analytical chemistry

Organic chemistry at Symeres has been proactively accommodating recent developments in drug discovery. Today, we are proud to say that we not only synthesize small molecules but also many nontraditional compounds, such as medium- to large-sized molecules, such as macrocycles and DEL-derived peptide-like molecules. However, this development would not have been possible if we could not analyze what we had made! In this article, one of the senior scientists from our Analytical Department, Colinda van Tilburg, talks about the challenges she encounters.

Colinda joined Mercachem (now Symeres) in 2007 after working for Organon (Oss) (now MSD) for 17 years. In her days at Organon, she switched from organic chemistry to analytical chemistry. In this interview, she explains the added benefit of having organic chemistry knowledge as an analytical chemist and passionately tells us how the analytical department solves new challenges every day.

Curious to see if her colleagues agree with Colinda's assessment? Go see this round table discussion, with analytical chemists from all four chemistry sites!
