Immunology is a very fascinating field; it reaches into literally
every area of disease research and prevention (cancer, AIDS, aging).
In aging research the focus is on the immunologic theory of aging.
A look at a good (advanced) textbook might tell you if this area of
science is for you.
A magnificent new textbook - - used in graduate and advanced med
school courses - - is: Cellular and Molecular Immunology
