Mercy obtained a Masters in Organic Chemistry from Bryn Mawr College in 1992 under the direction of Professor Frank B Mallory. She began her career at The Fox Chase Cancer Center, focusing her research efforts on the identification of fluorinated carbohydrates molecular probes. She later continued her career with Rhoune-Poulenc Rorer as an Associate Scientist studying in the medicinal chemistry of orally active PDE-4 inhibitors. Her work contributed to the development multiple orally active anti-inflammatory compounds. Mercy joined the parallel synthesis team at Dupont-Merck in 1997, and applied her medicinal chemistry expertise to targets associated with Alzheimer’s Disease. In 2003, Mercy joined Wyeth Research as a member of the Exploratory Chemistry Group led by Dr. Magid Abou Gharbia and John Ellingboe. Her work contributed to the development of clinical candidates across four drug discovery programs.
