>Response from Dr. Hans J. Kugler:
 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
