Summary of Internship

At D&O Pharmachem, I have gained a new perspective on the world of drugs. The products that sit in my medicine cabinet were all once separate chemicals from different companies. D&O is one of those suppliers. I have also learned how hard it is to get a drug on the market and how there are different steps along the way to getting a drug approved by the FDA. My project at my internship involves a new branch of the company called R&D. My role is to research other companies interested in using our facilities for making their blueprint of a drug a reality.
