Biological, medical, and biological engineering scientists study living organisms and their relationship to their environment. many biological and virtually all medical and biomedical scientists work in research and development. Biological and medical scientists do research to understand the causes of disease and other health problems. Engineering scientists use engineering principles to solve medical and health-related problems. They may design and develop medical equipment and instruments or adapt current technology to solve a health problem.

These types of careers are a good fit for people who like to investigate the "how" and "why," as well as for people who like to find solutions and how to apply solutions to improve people's health.
