Becoming a micro biologist or a chemist is a great way to help research disease pathology or to work on pharmaceuticals or other treatments or cures for disease. By getting a degree and working in a lab, hospital, pharmacy to learn more about the healthcare industry and disease states, and then applying to a grad school program (masters or PhD) is a great way to put yourself on a path to get a really good research job or in house position as an R&D specialist at a pharma or device company. Volunteering for a lab, working as a pharm tech, or helping organize an event with proceeds going to medical research are great ways to meet valuable connections and to learn more about the industry.
