What can I do with my Biochemistry degree in Nigeria

Biochemistry by simple definition is the study of chemical substances, processes, and reactions that occur in living organisms. It is believed that a career in biochemistry is at the crossroads between biology and medicine, and many biochemists often find themselves as toxicologist, clinical biochemist, forensic scientist, analytical chemist, laboratory technicians, biomedical scientist just to name a few. Many find themselves in research institutes, private sectors or government agencies. In Nigeria, opportunities are vast, however, it is difficult to determine who the typical employers of biochemists are, maybe the pharmaceutical sector, biotechnology, food, water or agricultural companies.
