Whether working for a pharmaceutical giant or a biotech start-up with a unique vision, researchers who responded to this year’s Best Places to Work in Industry survey are translating society’s most pressing scientific needs into a new generation of drugs, research tools, and cutting-edge innovations. Wyatt Technology (#4), with a workforce of around 100 employees, provides instrumentation for the characterization of macromolecules, while the similarly small Genomatica (#8) offers new green and sustainable ways of manufacturing chemicals.
