The pharmaceutical industry recruits graduates from most scientific disciplines, including all the ones you mention, and I'm sure they take a lot of engineers, too.

You should study to do well at school and university, I don't think you need to study anything extra, but I'd suggest you try and get work experience in the pharmaceutical industry.

I've linked the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry website, which has a really good section on careers. I expect it's similar in your country.

That sounds pretty great and accurate, you're on the right track,

I would also study:

First Aid

Human Anatomy

Human Physiology

Medicine

Pharmacology

General Biology

Diseases

Zoology too.

Lastly:

Latin

Medical Ethics

Medical Law

Get good grades in school

Go to College

Keep studying

Read library books

about those subjects.

It takes years to become a researcher like that,

don't give up, be patient.

You can also be a Dr., EMT, Nurse or Pharmacist, etc.

The most important course's I would study would be Biochemistry,

Microbiology, Chemistry, Molecular Biology, General Biology and Diseases.
