Biochemists study the molecular and cellular processes that take place in all living organisms, ranging from bacteria, plants and animals to human beings.

As a biochemist, your job would allow you to:

  • Analyse the effects of external elements such as food, food additives, allergens and drugs on the cells in our bodies;
  • Work together with geneticists and doctors to conduct tests for detecting diseases, genetic disorders and other abnormalities;
  • Study the interaction of pesticides with plants and contribute to developing better crops and more environment-friendly agricultural practices.

Your work would help advance scientific knowledge to develop better foods, medicines and agricultural products.
