Biomedical Engineers are employed in the medical industry. They use a combination of knowledge of biology, medicine, technology and mechanical engineering in their job. Biomedical Engineers research and develop and design new medical equipment and instruments.
A Biomedical Engineering Technicians work in a team alongside Biomedical Engineers. They help Biomedical Engineering Technicians help design and develop a great variety of medical equipment and instruments.
Biophysicists study life on every level including the biology and physics of cells, organisms and environments. They use methods of mathematics, physics, chemistry and biology to study how living organisms work. They usually work in teams with different kinds of scientists to solve problems.
A Biotechnologist is a scientist. Their main job is to study the characteristics of cells in living organisms then modify them for product development or scientific research. They can work in industries like: Medical, Manufacturing, Agriculture and Academia.
A Clinical Biochemist studies our body chemistry. Biochemistry also falls into the area of pathology. Clinical Biochemists carry out complex analytical studies by analysing the results of the patient’s specimens (samples). They can, with very modern technology and equipment, detect changes in the chemistry of our body fluids.
A Medical Scientist works in a laboratory. They perform laboratory tests and experiments to help the diagnosis and prevention of diseases. Medical Scientists can specialise in various fields.
