Doctors, nurses, and other medical staff must study biology to learn how to aid both humans and animals. Learning about the human body’s inner processes, organs, neurological system, blood, reproduction, development and diseases all prove essential for treatment and research.
The courses in Biology will help students to understand and appreciate many uses of this field. Many medicines contain plant-based ingredients. Aspirin was derived from the acetylsalicylic acid found in willow tree bark. Foxglove provides the basis for a heart medication. The anti-cancer drug Taxol is another example of a biologically derived medicine. Plants even form the basis for bandages, whether cotton or latex.
The courses will also assist students gain a wider knowledge about the realm of biotechnology which also stands at the forefront of healthcare options. Additionally, many biological products are regulated for medical science and research use.
Among others, students will appreciate the role biology plays in the study of blood and blood components, human tissue, monoclonal antibodies and proteins such as enzymes and growth factors all contribute to vital research for new medicines. Biology is far more than a school subject; it aids in making life better for everyone on Earth.
What Will You Learn?
