Isn’t It Ironic?

Department: Letters

There is irony in the book review “Finding Jobs in Biopharma” (C&EN, May 19, page 48). The image is of a researcher at Immunex, a company subsumed (and essentially dismantled) by Amgen several years back. Opportunities, indeed! I hope there’s a “pros and cons” discussion on when small start-ups are bought by big pharma.
