Yes, as a matter of fact there are several lists of virologists. One is a
list of Virologists on the Internet (the virologist adds him/herself to the
list) and the other is a list of Europic 94 Participants
(picornavirologists). To access these lists, you need Mosaic or other WWW
browser. The URL is http://www.bocklabs.wisc.edu/phonebooks.html
I strongly recommend the University of Wisconsin's virology program (I'm
not at all biased ! :) Paul Friesen is a respected baculovirologist. Ann
Palmenberg and Roland Rueckert are both respected picornavirologists.
Roland Rueckert works on rhinoviruses but he is retiring soon. Good luck!
