      There are LOTS. For example, I’m a sports nutritionist, which means I work with athletes trying to get them to reach their sporting potential by changing what they eat and drink.

      What I do working in pathology involves the human body. We look at body fluids (like blood, sweat and urine), tissue (skin, teeth) and help doctors decide the best way to look after a patient. It’s great fun and I’m always learning loads. You can start as a lab assistant like I did and work your way up in your career or you can go to university. It has to be an IBMS accredited degree though in Biomedical Science and start as a qualified member of staff. Hope this helps a little to explain what we do in pathology.

      There are many careers that involve the human body. I am a biomedical scientist with the blood transfusion service. So we work with blood donated by human blood donors which we test and process to prepare them for safe transfusion into a receiving patient. If you are interested in becoming a biomedical scientist this link to the IBMS is really useful as shows you a bit more of what we do.

      There are SO many jobs you could do. I am a research scientist working at a university and I investigate how the body’s immune response controls virus infections. This is really important for helping develop drugs and vaccines.
