Biochemistry: In biochemistry, students can study both chemistry & biology together. A biochemist is the one who solves the biological problems through the concepts of chemistry. Jobs related to biochemistry include becoming a biomedical scientist, forensic scientist, clinical laboratory technologist, toxicologist, research scientist, healthcare scientist, pharmaceutical sales representative, consultant, patient care coordinator, lab technician, medical coder, etc.
Genetics: In this field, students study about genetic diseases, anomalies, traits, mutations, how genes are transmitted, interactions of genes with their environment, etc.As a geneticist, immunologist, cytogeneticist, forensic DNA analyst, medical technologist, pharmacologist are the jobs options in Genetics
Bioinformatics: It involves the techniques for analyzing the biological data by studying biology, computer science and information technology together. Jobs related to bioinformatics include becoming a bioinformatics analyst or a developer with pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, healthcare organisations, pharmaceuticals
Marine Biology: It involves the study of marine organisms, including their behaviour, and interactions with the environment. Fishery Science is also related career tomarine biology. Opportunities in Marine Biology includes aquaculturist, fishery biologist, environmental consultant, researcher, etc.
Biotechnology: Biotechnology is all about towork in different areas to improve our life, by improving the production of food items, developing drugs to deal with deadly diseases, etc. Job related to biotechnology includesbecomingpharmaceuticals, healthcare, genetics, or clinical research, sales and marketing, quality control, administration, or as a laboratory assistant or a field technician.
Biomedical Science: Biomedical professionals work in the domain of health care and also study how cells, organs, and processes function in the human body. With a degree in biomedical science, you can find work as a biomedical scientist, clinical researcher, forensic scientist, toxicologist, immunologist, and other healthcare professions.
Allied Medicine: If you have utmost interest in Medical career but unfortunately you have been unable to become an MBBS then this career option is best for you.
