Medical Biotechnology

Medical biotechnology is the use of living cells and cellular materials for the research and production of pharmaceutical and diagnostic products that help to treat and prevent human diseases. Most medical biotechnologists work in academic or industrial settings. In university laboratories, these professionals conduct experiments in the framework of medical research studies; Industrial biotechnologists work on the development of drugs or vaccines. The field of medical biotechnology has made it possible to market microbial pesticides, insect resistant crops and environmental cleaning techniques.

Examples of discoveries in the field of medical biotechnology include insulin and growth hormone. The two discoveries were the result of research related to deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). Many scientists in the field of medical biotechnology are studying genetic engineering. This involves the isolation, identification and sequencing of human genes to determine their functions. Working in this arena may eventually lead to remedies for certain diseases, such as Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's syndrome.
