I would like to pursue a career somewhere along the lines of research on the disease front. Im unsure of the uni course that would be best suited for this; biomed, biochem, pharm, etc? I've been doing lots of research but I'm struggling to tell the difference between them and what would be best for what i want to do. Any help would be appreciated

Biomedical science is primarily human biology, with a focus on health.
Biological science is a far more broad degree, and includes plants, animals, evolution, ecosystems, genetics, etc.
Biochemistry is obviously far more chemistry heavy, and focuses on biochemical processes in humans, animals and plants. There is also a lot of molecular and cell biology.
Pharmacology/Pharmacy is the study of drugs and their effects on the body.

If you're primarily interested in disease, biomedical science would be your best option.

Thankyou! I think I'm going to stick with biomedicine because that's the subjects I'm most interested in. Just looking at unis now and which ones have the best modules for what I'm interested in!
