What is Life Science?

Life sciences are a wide-ranging field that includes many disciplines and specialties. All the disciplines cover the scientific study of life and organisms, including microorganisms, plants and animals, and human beings. Some life sciences specialties focus on the study of a specific type of organism. Other specialties concentrate on aspects of life that are common to all living things. Among the branches of life science are:

  • Cell biology
  • Genomics
  • Proteomics
  • Physiology
  • Genetics
  • Biotechnology
  • Epidemiology

The field of life sciences is incredibly vast and reflects the enormity of life on this planet. With applications in health, medicine, agriculture, and the pharmaceutical and food science industries, life science discoveries advance the quality and standard of life.
