The biotech industry is essentially grounded in the scientific process of turning living organisms into commercial products, such as pest-resistant crops and drugs. The main divide in the industry, therefore, is between agricultural and medical markets.* Because of the nature of its innovations, including new methods of drug development, disruption has created businesses more capable of adapting than established companies. Careers within the industry include biomedical engineers, biophysicists, biochemists, medical/clinical technologists and more.
Highest paying jobs in Biotech include: Senior Scientist, Scientist and Medical Director.
