I don't know what to do because I always thought I was going to end up doing a degree with pure Chemistry, but I'm taking HL Chemistry for IB and it's really not what I thought it would be...

And I think I want to do something on the medicine side (you know like making the medicine, curing diseases, research into diseases), so it would make sense to take Biology but I don't really like Biology on it's own.

So I was thinking of Biological and Medicinal Chemistry or Biochemistry but I don't really know the difference between them. Or would there be a way of studying both Biology and Chemistry??

Medicinal chemistry is looking into drug molecules, how to make them etc.
Biochemistry is more about chemistry in the body

I've studied Chemistry at uni back in the days (3 years ago) currently working in pharma (QA and QC) a friend of mine did medicinal chemistry working in a research lab making anti-cancer drug.
