In the kickoff series of the Get Science Podcast, we’re focusing on scientific careers of people working in biopharma, and their different paths and opportunities taken as they hunt for potential cures to human disease.
Charlotte Allerton has dedicated her career to helping optimally design medicines that transform patients’ lives. With a MPhil in organic chemistry from the University of Cambridge, Allerton began her career at Pfizer working in the Medicinal Chemistry department at the Sandwich, U.K. research site. Nearly 25 years later, Allerton, today, is Head of Medicine Design at Pfizer’s Cambridge, MA research location. In this conversation, we’ll hear more about how the surprising way Allerton’s childhood allergies inspired her chemistry training, and how she progressed into a leadership role that combines a variety of disciplines to deliver innovative medicines.
