Are you interested in careers in biomedical science?

If you’re searching for an exciting research area that remains mostly unexplored and fantastical, then this is it!

Biomedical scientist is a scientist who trained in biology, particularly in the context of medicine. Biomedical scientists work to gain knowledge on the main principles of how the human body works and find new ways to cure or treat disease by developing advanced diagnostic tools or new therapeutic strategies. Related streams include pathology, human biology, biomedical engineering, genetics, epidemiology, immunology, pharmacology, clinical or applied chemistry.

Following is all you need to understand about a Bio-medical science as career with lots of information :

Eligibility Criteria to Study Biomedical Science

  • A bachelor’s degree is the first requirement if you want to follow a career in biomedical sciences.
  • Those who want to be streamlined to their preferred topic should consider a degree in pharmacology, molecular biology, genetics, biochemistry, or chemistry from the very start,
  • Since all these streams are interrelated, topics can always be changed if necessary.
  • Alternatively, you can pursue a bachelor’s degree in biomedical science, B.Tech. biotechnology / biomedical engineering or B.Pharm, before pursuing an sophisticated biomedical science course.

Job profiles

The laboratory is the main job of biomedical scientists.With the assistance of pipettes, beakers, and test tubes,  they manage various biological samples, such as tissues, cells, blood, along with high-tech machinery and computers. Common responsibilities and biomedical researchers ‘ job profile are as follows:

  • Screening and testing of lifestyle diseases, such as cardiovascular issues, cancer, and diabetes, along with screening for Ebola, rubella, hepatitis, and other infectious diseases
  • Development, discovery of treatments like medicines or drugs as therapeutic agents and vaccines as preventive measures
  • Understanding, investigating disease progression, profile, and mechanisms
  • Finding innovative, new, and effective means of disease detection, such as new biomarker discovery


Junior researchers can earn approximately Rs. 12,000 to Rs. 18,000 on a monthly basis. Similarly, as a senior researchers, can expect to earn Rs. 25,000 a month. After completion of Ph.D in India, which is generally within four to six years, one can go for research and teaching, to earn Rs. 4 3.2 lakhs – Rs. 6 lakhs per annum.
