After completing Doctoral work at the University of Kentucky in 1975 I moved to a professorship at the University of Houston. I was promoted through the ranks, served for several years as the Director of the U of H Research Council and was also director of the U of H NMR facility until leaving there in 1989 for a position at Burroughs Wellcome, Co. in RTP, NC. I was first promoted to section head and then principal scientist. I left BWCo in 1996 following the Glaxo acquisition for a position at what was then the Upjohn, Co. I lived in Kalamazoo until 2006 and worked for a succession of companies that included Pharmacia and Upjohn, Pharmacia, and finally Pfizer where I was a Senior Fellow. Most recently I moved in early 2006 to Schering-Plough Research Institute as a Distinguished Fellow. I currently retain that title with the Merck Research Laboratories, DPS-Global Chemistry/Analytical Chemistry/Structure Elucidation Group following the 2009 acquisition of Schering-Plough by Merck.
