    hello Alle

    I am 20 and a student of Bachelors in Biotechnology. So to speak the truth I am stepping into the industry, gradually of course. Now this is what make me stop for a moment and think. From my childhood I was always fascinated by this field and I must say the fruits and benefits mankind is getting from this sector is tremendous. It has the potential to end world hunger, eliminate each and every disease, any disorders and even those which haven’t showed up in our day to day life in the first place.

    Anyway coming directly to the point, 5 years fast forward and now I sense its not always the happy picture which we see in the advertisement of genetic therapy drugs and GMO’s. There’s always a quite sad and depressing story behind many achievements in this world of biotechnology.

    I would like to know is there some way through which we the youngsters could participate to provide this sector a new perspective for a better world.

    What suggestion would you like to provide to students like me who is interested in going to the depth of the core problem and who do not want to undergo the traditional way of entering into a lab cage with an apron as a skin?

    Is there some way we can incorporate psychology into Biotechnology?

    Hello Ranjan,

    You got the words right out of my mouth. I have a bachelors degree in biotechnology and I am currently working for a project on crop genetic transformation. I am also currently pursuing an online Masters course in psychology, trying to understand the interplay between psychology and biotechnology.

    I was searching for the possible specializations in “Biotechnology psychology” when I landed on this article, so I totally understand your frustration.

    I’m glad to find two more voyagers in the sea of internet who would relate to how lost I feel trying to navigate the connection between Biotech and Psychology.
