We get to invent every single day, sometimes it’s little things, sometimes it's big things. But at the end of the day, you realize all of the little things that you're inventing work towards a common goal of having an impact on human health.”
Medication only works if you take it.
This is what makes Stephanie Barrett’s job so important.
Stephanie leads a team at MSD that works on inventing long-acting formulations of our medicines. “These long-acting formulations are developed to give patients new options to take their medicines,” she notes.
“I am inspired by the potential for long-acting formulations to treat — and even help prevent — certain diseases,” she notes. “I would feel an incredible amount of pride to contribute to a new option for patients.”
Stephanie has had many roles in our labs since she joined the company almost 10 years ago, but she’s especially drawn to her current team’s mission and how it works towards MSD’s goal of Inventing for Life. “I think one of the most fun parts of our jobs is really to invent. We get to invent every single day, sometimes it's little things, sometimes it's big things,” she says.
“But I think at the end of the day I realize that all of these little things that we're inventing work towards a common goal of really having an impact on saving and improving lives.”
