The term biotechnology was initially used by Karl Ereky as the application of biosciences and their effect on man-made technologies in 1919.


Briefly, biotechnology science includes any kind of man-made intelligent activity in the world which uses organisms, especially through manipulations at their molecular level, to develop various products and improve the environment, the food and people's health. As such, to deepen their knowledge of the field, researchers should implement more educational and research programs from the biotechnology field.

Those with a master's degree in Medical biotechnology, a field in basic biomedical sciences, are able  to improve the environment, the food products, and the health indices by adopting and implementing new findings from different sciences including molecular and cellular biology, genetic engineering, tissue engineering and living organisms. The main duty of medical biotechnology is to resolve health

problems of general community and to produce useful bio-products such as vaccines, diagnostic kits, recombinant antibodies, food products and drugs.
