How significantly do Academic and Industrial research differ? What does each offer the young scientist? Should Academia and Pharma work together? What are their respective work environments like in Poland? What can you expect after switching from academia to pharma?

While these questions have been the subject of several debates and interviews so far, it is difficult to provide objective conclusions if you have not worked in both corporate and university settings. This lecture discusses and expands upon these considerations, providing observation and insight based on personal experience.
