Top 10 Booming Life Sciences fields of 2030

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way the world viewed the life science sector. The Coronavirus pandemic’s current outbreak has potentially made us understand how vital basic science is. Pandemic brought a huge boom in these fields, and it will continue to increase 100x times in the next 10 years.

So it makes sense today that we discuss and try to predict the future of the Life Sciences field and try to find out the domains of Life Sciences which will be booming in 2030 – that is 9 years from Now.

Number 1: Quantum Biology & Quantum Chemistry

Quantum computers of today have shown promising results in solving biologically relevant problems, like predicting protein-ligand interactions or understanding the coevolution of amino acids in proteins, exponentially faster than any current computer. In the next 10 years, the quantum computing field Is going to grow faster than ever. And that means there is a huge scope of growth in this field of biology and chemistry. The best part about this field is – It’s still in its nascent phase, so if you start studying Quantum Biology or chemistry today, you will be a world-renowned scientist in the next 10 years. So this is one of the best fields I can recommend to you today. The Upside is it’s very, very new, and the downside is there is no course yet on quantum Biology as yet. So the Internet is your only best friend at this juncture to learn its basics. However, keep an eye; this field is going to boom.

Number 2: Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical engineering also referred to as Bioengineering, is a multidisciplinary STEM field that combines biology and engineering to build and develop computer systems, hardware, equipment, and gadgets for medicine and healthcare. Biomedical engineering plays a major role in designing advanced prosthetics, genomic testing, surgical robots, new pharmaceutical drugs, Kidney dialysis, and many more. There are various Colleges offering Biomedical Engineering courses and there are top-notch companies that recruit students in this domain.

Number 3: Molecular and Cell Biology

Molecular and cell biology makes it to the list of Booming Life Sciences fields. It has a great deal to offer to the tropical medicine field and helps to understand the population genetics and dynamics of both infectious and non-infectious diseases; this field holds promise to provide a new generation of diagnostic and therapeutic agents. It will also play a major role in developing new vaccines and other approaches to the control of the disease.

In the short time during which this field has evolved, a great deal has been discovered about human pathology at the molecular level. Many monogenic diseases have been characterized; in fact, a lot has been learned about cancer’s molecular and cell biology in the past decade. A start has already been made in defining the different genes that comprise the complex interactions between nature and nurture that underlie many of the major killer diseases.

Number 4: Virology

Now, this is a “no brainer,” Virology is going to boom 100x times, not only because of Coronavirus COVID19 but also due to the fact that viruses mutate and the havoc which this 2nd wave of the pandemic has created; all the governments across the globe are going to put in a lot of research dollars in this field. Viruses can also be a potential bioterrorism weapon of the future. Thus, the demand for virologists who will be able to detect and mitigate viral emergencies will go up in the next 10 years. At Biotecnika, we have already taken steps to help and build a strong career for future Virologists by providing Online Certifications on Virology and COVID-19; if you are interested, check the link given below.

Number 6: Artificial Intelligence in Biology

Now AI in Biology is already being used in drug discovery, molecular moiety designing, and much more. But what will accelerate it is Quantum Computing, the growing capacities of today’s computing machines, and above all development in the AI and learning models. This is an Interdisciplinary domain and the demand is going to be huge in the future but what you need today is: to get started with a course that teaches you the basics of AI and then the basics of AI in Biology; we have included this below. Don’t forget to check it out.

Number 7: Bioinformatics

Bioinformatics is where computers, software, and databases meet biological challenges. A domain that is always used to answer biological questions using computational tools. Its applications include identifying gene and protein functions, learning evolutionary relationships, and anticipating the 3D structures of proteins. Now Genomics and proteomics are the two vital large-scale activities that utilize bioinformatics. There are many excellent resources and courses related to Bioinformatics in today’s world and if you want to learn more about it, check the link below.

Number 8: Epidemiology

Until 2019 November, Epidemiology was a “not-so-attractive” field for biologists, but its significance was reiterated during the COVID-19 pandemic. Epidemiologists study how diseases occur to various groups of people and why do they occur. All the data about diseases is used to plan and develop standard operating procedures that are used to eradicate or control infectious diseases. This is an exciting field and various colleges and universities are teaching this as a specialization now. All you have to do is find them out and apply. So to do just that, check the link given below:

Number 9: Pharmacology

Now, this is an evergreen field, and it’s my personal favorite. It was always there and it is always going to be there and will keep growing for the next 100 years also. It is the study of drugs and their effect on living systems, that is, how drugs work in the body. This discipline of study is responsible for antibiotics, painkillers, and caffeine drinks. It is the science of what is happening to your body and to the drug itself. Types of pharmacology include clinical pharmacology, neuropharmacology, veterinary pharmacology, psychopharmacology, cardiovascular pharmacology.

Number 10: Medical Laboratory Technology

MLT is a branch of science that handles the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of diseases utilizing clinical laboratory tests entailing analysis of the body fluids. The profession of a medical laboratory technician is highly valuable in the medical care sector. This study will always remain in high demand; new diseases will keep emerging, and the healthcare sector will have to be at the forefront to fight against them.

So what are you waiting for, we have the Top 10 Booming Life Sciences fields of 2030 / 10 booming sectors of the future right in front of you, go ahead. Do your research, match it with your persona, career goals, interests, and, very importantly, decide what kind of career you want to design for yourself. And then go jump in. Remember a small pebble which you throw today in the ocean of Life Science will come back to you like a tsunami of career opportunities in the future.
