Pharmaceutical Scientist

Fame

Fame is not in the cards for most pharmaceutical scientists, but they do have it pretty nice when it comes to piling up points in the karma bank for the work they do. Each day, pharmaceutical scientists are playing a leading role in changing people's lives. They're coming up with the new ways to minimize the twitching and tremors in people with Parkinson's disease. They are toiling away at the bench to try to make schizophrenia drugs a bit more tolerable so patients will actually take them. And maybe their research for the baldness cream will help the 40-year-old bachelor finally get a date.
