Overview

Biotech covers a wide range of scientific study into living organisms and can be applied to health, medicine, pharmaceuticals, agriculture and the food industry. The Biotech industry is involved in scientific research, development and advanced technology which makes for some very exciting and rewarding careers.

With people living longer and an increase in diseases/viruses, this is an industry where you could make a real difference to people's lives.
