Biotechnology is defined, according to the UN Convention on Biological Diversity, as a discipline that is primarily concerned with the development of “Any technological application that uses biological systems, living organisms, or derivatives thereof, to make or modify products or processes for specific use".
Biotechnology offers many overlaps across a multitude of sectors, including medical and clinical research, agriculture, environmental, food production, cancer research, bio-robotics and defence. Biotech is arguably one of the most exciting sectors in science at the moment. Covid-19 has had a massive impact on the industry as the demand for human health products increases due to the pandemic.
Aside from the pandemic, the biotech industry has has grown exponentially over the past 20 years and public attitudes to this sector have changed. The biotech industry continues to flourish nationwide and across the globe, which has resulted in the total number of biotechnology companies increasing rapidly and employment in the field continues to grow at a very high rate.
If you are not sure what career direction you should go in, but you are fundamentally looking to make a difference to the world we live in, biotech makes room for everybody. No matter if you are a computer geek, a math nerd, a biology expert or a chemistry guru – each of these disciplines and their many variants have their foundations firmly cemented in this field.
