How can sickness originate from our particular genome? How can we create fresh techniques to feed those suffering from starvation or provide innovative treatments for the most common diseases in the world? The exciting developments in molecular and cell biology are applied to medicine, human health, and illness by means of medical biotechnology.
The disciplines of molecular analysis, genetic engineering, proteomics, and data science are all included in the Bachelor of Medical Biotechnology (Honors). These are all fields that are fast growing. Biotechnology is influencing several facets of medicine (such as cancer, vaccinations, disease therapy and diagnostics, and medical devices) as well as many other sectors (such as veterinary science and food production) by utilizing cutting-edge technologies like molecular modeling and design.
