Microbiology mainly focuses on bacteria that cause diseases, and it's the primary science in preventative medicine because of its dedication to vaccines and antibiotics. I found learning how bacteria grow is the best way to be able to combat them. It's more than just learning the human body, it's learning the pathogens that infect it. I think that's a very important part of being a scientist — it's learning more about diseases and how they can be stopped.
