Your career question: What about biostatistics, Is it marketable now?

Career Question: What about biostatistics, Is it marketable now?
ABOUT BIOSTATISTICS, I'd say it's among the fastest rising careers in Kenya and the
world in general. Your typical area would include specializing in research in biological fields. You will analyze data extensively, on for example, the spread of Malaria in a certain area, the cause of tuberculosis in a certain area etc, the research must be backed up with data. So, you
will train in both biological areas such as biochemistry and also in statistics, to help you analyze the data from the field. You will also be trained in some programming, to help you come up with more scientific data. So, I'd say that you should really take up the course if you have been offered one. Typical employers would include Kemri, Ministry of health,hospitals, Universities amongst other leading private laboratories in the area.
