The essence of biotechnology is most prominent in the field of genetic researches and drug designing. However, it is being effectively being used for conservation of natural resources and developing newer sources of alternative energy as well.
Clinical research is a scientific study of the effects, risks, efficacy and benefits of a medicinal product. These are carried out prior to the release of the medicine in the market.
There are various growth opportunities for those who are interested iin biotechnology and research with it.
You can consider working with the clinical research organisations, in the field of pharmaceuticals, drug development, biostatistics, data management, regulatory affairs etc.
You can after 12th science take up b.tech biotechnology or B.sc biotechnology and team it up with a PG in clinical research.
Hope this helps.
Kindly revert for further queries.
All the best, Rashmita!
