Biology careers

  1. Jan 11, 2016 #1
    Hello,My name is guy im currently in highschool learning biology as my "major"(not sure how to call it ) subject aswell as ecology, I've been always intrested in biology but recently I got stuck thinking what do I want to do in biology.Biology is like a tree that has many branches and im kinda lost. The current things im the most intrested about in Biology has to be either genetics or micro organism. Is there any careers that are related to any of thoes and are there any careers that can be considered "safe"

    Not an answer to your question, but you might also want to look into bio-engineering.

    Many medical devices are provided sterile to the customer. Microbiologists sometimes find careers in medical devices as sterilization specialists.
