Podcast: Dr Phil Jones shares his career journey in discovery

Published: 22 August 2019

In a recent podcast, Bioscent’s Chief Scientific Officer, Dr Phil Jones, talks about his career and what he has learned along the way.

Dr Phil Jones says: “For me, drug hunting is almost the perfect job. I like chemistry, using it to interact with biological systems is really challenging, and ultimately you’re trying to make something that benefits patients which is incredibly worthwhile.”

In this podcast, Phil discussed the importance of becoming an expert in this field; why having good people around you is vital; how the role of the chemist is changing; and the crucial role of networking and interacting with different kinds of people to expand knowledge.
