Biotechnology is one of the fastest growing sectors internationally, and demand is strong for qualified experts, managers and researchers. Biotechnology offers potential solutions to many of the pressing problems current facing medicine. The development of antibodies for use in arthritis therapy, and the new technologies for skin transplants and cartilage generation have dramatically improved the quality of life of millions of patients worldwide. And these are only the first outstanding successes of a discipline that is still in its youth.
