Clinical and Experimental Pharmacology
Merck is a global health care leader with a diversified portfolio of prescription medicines, vaccines and consumer health products, as well as animal health products. Today, we are building a new kind of healthcare company – one that is ready to help create a healthier future for all of us.
Our ability to excel depends on the integrity, knowledge, imagination, skill, diversity and teamwork of people like you. To this end, we strive to create an environment of mutual respect, encouragement and teamwork. As part of our global team, you’ll have the opportunity to collaborate with talented and dedicated colleagues while developing and expanding your career.
The Clinical Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics (CPET) department is composed of translational scientists responsible for bringing novel potential medicines into humans. We incorporate knowledge from laboratory and preclinical studies to define drug action in humans and prioritize development of the compounds with the greatest chance of success. Once a drug achieves proof of concept, CPET applies pharmacological principles to inform practitioners how to appropriately dose new medicines in different populations and in different clinical situations. We work in all the therapeutic areas in which Merck develops drugs including Cardiovascular Disease, Diabetes & Endocrinology, Immunology, Inflammation & Respiratory Disease, Infectious Disease, and Neuroscience. We believe physician-scientists are optimally positioned to participate in these stages of drug development.
A team approach is used at Merck to coherently and efficiently develop new drugs. Teams consists of experts in preclinical research, pharmacokinetics and drug metabolism, medicinal chemistry, pharmaceutical sciences, clinical sciences, biostatistics, modeling and simulation, regulatory strategy, program management, clinical trial operations and commercial development.

Clinical is probably the most useful. The skill set is transferable. My background was clinical and then I made the transition to industrial.
However, it is harder to go in the other direction, say from experimental to clinical. You can sail through those methods and stats classes, but you still have a lot of psychometry, psychopathology and pharmacology to go through in addition to the therapy.
