I am doing B.Sc. What are the opportunities of Biochemistry in future in India and abroad. Please give me information about Universities offering this course.
Biochemistry is an essential part of Life Science or Bioscience. In the 21st century, Life science is going to be important. It will bring in enormous changes in the way we live, get medical care and take medicines. Prospects of newer ways of medical care, newer biological and healthcare products are plenty. We will get an artificial tissue developed from stem cells to replace any damaged tissue in our body. A protein supplement taken once a day will provide all the proteins we need. We may see a genetically developed cow, which will produce more milk than a normal cow. Possibilities in the 21st Century are enormous.
Biological research and development of all these products will need Life Scientists in more numbers. So the prospects of all Life Scientists including Biochemists are definitely bright.
