B.Voc Medical Biotechnology-1

What is Medical Biotechnology?
Medical biotechnology is a branch of medicine that uses living cells and cell materials to research and then produce pharmaceutical and diagnosing products. These products help treat and prevent diseases. From the E.bola vaccine to mapping human DNA to agricultural impacts, medical biotechnology is making huge advancements and helping millions of people.
Some of the most recent uses of biological technology is work in genetic testing, drug treatments, and artificial tissue growth. 

Career Aspects  
Medical biotechnology is combination of different science oriented subjects, namely cell biology, genetics, nanotechnology, bioinformatics, etc., to carry out advancements in the field of medicine. It makes use of recombinant DNA technology in different therapeutic forms.
In medical biotechnology, one learns how diseases affect the human body at the cellular level. Its aim is prevention and treatment of the disorders, thereby increasing the lifespan of an individual; for example improving the accessibility for people with dis abilities. They use living cells as well as cell materials in their research and develop pharmaceutical and diagnostic products, which will be useful for the treatment and prevention of diseases thus offering a lot of scope for a career in Medical Biotechnology.
The most significant advantage of using this technique is that it can overcome the problems of graft rejection. One of the typical examples is the production of insulin. During the initial days, insulin was made from the pancreas of pigs and cattle, which lead to immunological reactions. Still, medical biotechnology solved this problem by producing insulin from E.coli by genetic engineering. 
Medical Biotechnology is also called Red biotechnology because of its application in the manufacturing of pharmaceuticals like vaccines, enzymes, antibiotics, etc,. as well as for molecular diagnostic purposes. These applications offer a lot of careers in Medical Biotechnology.
