Biomedical Sciences is the broad field of applied biology as related to animal and human health and disease. It involves the study of structure and function from the molecular to systemic level.
Biomedical Sciences fields:
-Biochemistry, Biophysics, and Structural Biology
-Biomedical Engineering and Bioengineering
-Cell and Developmental Biology
-Genetics and Genomics
-Immunology and Infectious Disease
-Integrated Biomedical Sciences
-Neuroscience and Neurobiology
-Pharmacology, Toxicology, and Environmental Health
Master of Science in Biomedical Science degree:
A typical graduate program in the biomedical sciences focuses on providing depth within a subdiscipline of biology. For example, such programs may provide advanced work in microbiology or pharmacology. Biomedical science programs prepare students for medical school by enhancing their knowledge of mathematics, physics, and medical science courses.
With your master’s or Ph.D. degrees in biomedical science you can lead new laboratory efforts in such areas as human performance; or pharmaceutical sciences.
Other career opportunities include, but are not limited to:
-Biomedical science-related positions associated with health and disease in sales, marketing, and research management
-Laboratory research related to health issues such as heart disease and stroke, cancer, infectious diseases, and chronic neurological diseases
-Work in health-related companies such as biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, and medical devices
