Science & pharmaceuticals x
Science spans across human, plants and animal life and then even further afield into galactic research and space exploration. Pharmaceuticals is often thought of as a separate industry because it is so vast. Pharmaceuticals is concerned with the research, development, creation and distribution of drugs that are in supermarkets and used in hospitals. If you’re involved in any aspect of this process you’re doing incredibly important work for society.
Science and pharmaceuticals is an extremely fast-paced industry as new discoveries and research is constantly taking place.
The work is demanding and can also be very challenging. Science and pharmaceuticals usually take on the task of battling epidemics and attempting to find cures to devastating diseases like cancer, HIV or Parkinson’s. At the same time, the reward of helping millions of people cannot be found that easily in other industries.
When thinking of science and pharmaceuticals, we immediately visualise a career helping people and curing illness. However, you can also work within food science, or environmental science, or even forensics. There’s countless number of opportunities available within science and people with strong scientific skills are high in demand.
