and why is biochemistry important in medicine? I kind of know why, but i cant find that much information so im stuck and i need a bit of help if anyone could help me? Ive read that organic chemistry serves as a basis of biochemistry and biochemistry is the study of chemical processes in biological systems or something does that mean organic chemistry helps indentify the drug or whatever and biochemistry helps understand how the body would react to that specific drug? Does that even make sense? it makes sense in my head x) So yeah help would be nice lol.
