What is biotechnology?
Biotechnology focuses on the application of the biological and biochemical sciences, and particularly genetics, to create new and enhanced biomedical, industrial, agricultural and environmental products. Modern biotechnology (including molecular, cellular and tissue manipulation) has helped us reduce our environmental footprint, utilize cleaner energy, improve manufacturing efficiency and create more than 250 healthcare products that fight debilitating and rare diseases. The field is flourishing in New Hampshire, Massachusetts and worldwide, with a growth of careers in tissue biology, genomics, microbiology, regulatory science, drug development and more.
