ok...if you wanna go into antiviral agent research, then your part
time college course of study should be biochemistry or microbiology or
biology depending on what majors your school offers in the biological
sciences. after that, you will have a good idea as to what the whole
field is all about and what research is all about. you should, if
possible, try to see if you can do an undergraduate independant study
project/research with faculty who are doing this kinda work (i.e talk to
professors in the biology/biochemistry depts).. again, this
depends on how conducive your school is to your needs. on hands research
should give you an idea as to what it is all about. after that, for
further study and specialization, you'll need to get a masters/ph.d (what
a lot of people, myself included, who read this newsgroup are eternally
trapped in...:). hope this helps....cheers...
