Why Study Microbiology, Molecular Biology, or Medical Laboratory Science?
Microbiologists study microscopic organisms like bacteria, viruses, fungi and protozoa to discover cures for diseases, increase growth and nutrition for our food supply, and safeguard the quality of life we enjoy. Molecular biologists study the fundamental functions of the Central Dogma of biology: how information stored, replicated and even mutated in DNA is regulated, repaired, persevered and transported via RNA into functional proteins, processes and system; and how those genes and proteins regulate every aspect of living organisms. The Medical Laboratory Science degree provides a curriculum to train students to practice medical laboratory science in diagnostic laboratories or other health care related settings. Successful completion of the program qualifies the student to sit for certification examinations.
