Careers in Biotechnology as a Lab Technician
Biotechnology is the study and use of living organisms and technology to solve problems and manufacture products that improve the overall quality of human life. Some of these products include food products, vaccines, candy, cheese, insulin, and many drugs, including those to treat cancer, HIV, heart disease, and Alzheimer's.
Many people employed in this field work as lab technicians who research, analyze, and record data and information. While the main area of growth in this field is in research positions, lab technician jobs are not solely research-based. There are also career opportunities in quality control and quality assurance, manufacturing, as well as sales and marketing.
