Biotech is hot! There are many career opportunities in biotech in the northern Virginia region. If you are interested in this as an academic and career path, our exhibit can help you learn more. Biotechnology is a broad term for using biological organisms (or their components) to do something that benefits humans. While biology is the study of “life,” biotechnology applies that knowledge to do something positive for us. This could be in health fields such as the detection and treatment of different diseases, or in agriculture, where crops such as corn are genetically modified, or in environmental biotechnology, where we use bacteria to clean up pollutants or to create alternate fuel sources.
