Hii, on my biomed (hons) course, we get to choose a route to specialise in, other options were pharmacoloygy,microbiology and biotechnology. I was wondering if any one else does something similar??
Everyones telling me I'm crazy for choosing biochem lol but the others dont interest me a great deal

I use to think electronic engineering was complex (I are engineer) and I visited the european centre for validation of alternative test methods one day, a world leading centre for the RRR research to stop animal testing. (reduce, refine, replace) I was talking to a nice biochem expert there, who was growing a human skin in a dish, as you do - and she showed me an (about) three metre long poster that she was working on defining the biochem communication pathways in a living cell.- it was covered in amazing hieroglyphics, every possible (human) / phyletic pathway was indicated, many of them incomplete, many of them having 'spare' pathways , or obviously pathways, enzymes, compounds etc that we do not yet know that we do not yet know them.

I'm impressed that you wish to work at the forefront of human knowledge, and that you wish to make a difference!

Wow that actually sounds amazing! It's right up my street, honestly we had to pick in probbaly around the space if 2 weeks, and i was panicking, thinking how could I possibly choose my career in this short amount of time, i did some reading, had some meetings with my tutors and decided that I dont want to be looking at drug formulations, and studying pharmacodynamics, or looking at E coli etc, nor do I want to look at technology, and that biochem was really the only one that i liked. Everyone says its really hard! But i love it, and from what you've described the field sounds even better, i can't wait!

This is not going to define your career in any way really so at this stage just pick what interests you the most.
