biomedicine

A highly nonspecific term for a broad field of study which borrows elements from the history of human and veterinary medicine, anatomy, physiology, genetics, pathology, zoology, botanical sciences, chemistry, biochemistry, biology and microbiology. While traditional medicine is concerned with the direct practical application of medical knowledge, biomedicine looks at its history and involves itself in new research to push the limits of what medicine is able to accomplish. Biomedicine may also refer to a specific type of treatment, generally seen as more ‘natural’ than others, and often available in a less regulated context.
