Episode 7 of the modern Chemistry podcast is the first one recorded since the start of the global COVID 19 pandemic. Jeff Sperry and I talk about the impact of the pandemic on his work & working practices straight away, but after about 5 minutes, we transition over to other topics. So, if you’ve had enough virus chat, scroll through the first five minutes after the intro.
Jeffrey (Jeff) Sperry is currently the Associate Director of Process Chemistry at Vertex Pharmaceuticals, based in Boston, MA. Before Vertex, he spent ten and a half years in chemistry and safety roles for Pfizer in Connecticut. Jeff has a first degree and a Ph.D. from Dartmouth College and was an NIH postdoctoral Research Fellow at The University of Pennsylvania.
