Why Work in Medical Research?
Medical research spans a broad area of the sciences with a goal to gain knowledge about and understanding of the biological processes and the causes of disease, ill-health, and traumatic injury. Medical research ranges from the laboratory benchtop to the patient bedside and all the steps in between, with the goal of finding better treatments and even cures, for humans and for animals.
Medical research requires a team of people drawn from different backgrounds, educational levels, and specialties. Such a team might include medical doctors, veterinarians, computer scientists, engineers, facility workers, animal care attendants, laboratory technicians, facility managers, lab technicians, regulatory administration, technical writers, and a variety of scientists working together.
