A career as a Biomedical Scientist,
As a Biomedical Scientist, you will carry out a range of laboratory and scientific tests on tissue samples and fluids to help clinicians diagnose and treat diseases. You will also evaluate the effectiveness of treatments.
Your work is extremely important to many hospital departments, such as operating theatres and A&E, and the functions you carry out are wide-ranging. For example, you may work on medical conditions such as cancer, diabetes, or AIDS, screen for and monitor a range of diseases or carry out tests for emergency blood transfusions.
A career as a Biotechnologist,
As a biotechnologist, you’ll study the genetic, chemical, and physical attributes of cells, tissues, and organisms in order to develop new technologies, processes, and products that will improve the quality of human life.
The role involves manipulating living organisms or their components to design or enhance vaccines, medicines, energy efficiency, or food productivity and safety.
