AMRI has named Dr. Philip William Small as director of chemistry at its Hungarian site. In his new position, Dr. Small will assume responsibilities for all of AMRI's European chemistry related activities including custom synthesis, medicinal chemistry, analytical services, library design and production. He brings over 20 years of practical and managerial experience in medicinal and combinatorial chemistry gained at leading combinatorial chemistry/drug discovery companies.
