Is the career of a medical researcher difficult?

I am an incoming college freshman that is debating what kind of career I want to strive for. I am looking for a career that can help people and that offers an enjoyable work environment with new and interesting things to do each day. Ideally, it would be related to the medical field. As of now, I am looking for information about medical scientists who develop new medicines or discover cures for illnesses. I would like more insight on these careers as most of my search results are broad. #medicine #biology #scientist #researcher #cell-biology

Herman’s Answer

Hi Cynthia!

Glad to hear you are interested in a career in the medical research field. I personally work in the pharmaceutical industry in drug development. It is a very rewarding career, and extremely heartwarming when you hear from patients who have better lives because of the work you do.

I don't personally conduct research in the laboratories, but I work with others who do. I oversee the trials that are designed to assess the safety and efficacy of these new drugs in humans. The biotechnology industry is really large, and there are many different opportunities, e.g., scientists conduct research in labs, doctors review patient data, safety scientists overseeing drug reactions.

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions!

Best regards,
Herman
