Posted by: site admin @ 12:20 pm

Certainly looking at profit and loss
statements
of chemical companies is
a way to determine
where one might
look to work.  One could look
at fields
which having a sustained or increasing
number
of patents and publications.

Another interesting way is see where
business
pundits view major advances
in chemical
technology.  Shirley Wang
authored “
the Nobel Prize will go to..
citing four shining areas–


development and understanding based
on
“molecular chaperones” to slow or
prevent
progressive brain diseases
(Parkinson’s,
Huntington’s, Alzheimer)
[F. U, Hartl, W. Horwich]

development of antibodies as drugs and
disease treatment to aid the human
immune
system
[R. A. Lerner, G. Winter]

novel synthetic methods to create
polymers
with desired design properties,
including
recyclabilitiy
[K. Matyjaszewski, ATRP]

telomers, telomerase and connection to
aging
[E. Blackburn, C. Greider]

The article also includes interesting advances
in physics and physiology.
