help me out guys
    #4361730 - 07/02/05 01:23 AM (11 years, 5 months ago)

im wondering what this job/field would be called. its what i want to do with my life so any help would be much appreciated.

where you go out study some animals/plants/nature and then find ways to apply them to help people.
some examples:
they use poppy plants to create an anesthetic for medical use.

they take the anti-coagulant of 'some animal' to use in the medical field.

they take the poison of a scorpion to try to find a way to cure cancer.

that type of shit.

what is the actual job called? what degree is required.thank you in advance.

It's hard to tack down a name on such a pursuit, but basically you want to be a research scientist. Which will entail getting a PhD and perhaps an MD too depending on how prominent a researcher you want to be.

There are a few ways you can do it with different overlapping degrees and graduate programs. To do so you'll want to find someone who is already working on such endeavors and be his/her graduate student.

You'll want to research schools and investigate faculty members.

If you're going into undergrad you could major in chemistry/biochemistry and minor in plant science, or double major. You could try to get into the pharmacy program for a PhD (not a Pharm D) with emphasis on phytochemicals.

There's many routes really and the trick to all of it is finding the appropriate faculty member for which you could be his/her student.

As for the exact name of what you want to do I'm not sure there is a standard, and generally new fields are born all the time now and names are just thrown together from existing words (sorta like how the germans make words). So you could call it a phytopharmacologist, zoophytopharmacologist, zoophytobiochemist, etc.. etc..
