How difficult is MATLAB to learn as I am soon to begin a research project that is supposedly going to require MATLAB to solve ODEs related to macromolecular drug flow.

Matlab is a cross between C, Fortran, and a shell. If you know any two of the
three its very easy. If not, it will be easy once you solve some simple excercises.

If you have never programmed before, it will be an odessy through the bowels of
Hades.
 
I have never programmed before so is it really going to be that difficult?

No, not really. But it will not be easy either. Matlab is easy- programming is
difficult.
