Member of the Association of American Physicians
Biochemistry, Sialic acid, Selectin, Sialic Acid Binding Immunoglobulin-like Lectins and Glycan are his primary areas of study. His Biochemistry research incorporates elements of Cell adhesion molecule and Cell biology. His studies in Sialic acid integrate themes in fields like Antibody and Gene.
His Selectin study incorporates themes from Heparin, Cell adhesion, Glycosaminoglycan and P-selectin. His Sialic Acid Binding Immunoglobulin-like Lectins course of study focuses on SIGLEC and Immunoglobulin domain. The various areas that Ajit Varki examines in his Glycan study include Secretory protein and Glycosylation.
Ajit Varki mostly deals with Biochemistry, Sialic acid, Glycan, Immunology and SIGLEC. Ajit Varki regularly links together related areas like Sialic Acid Binding Immunoglobulin-like Lectins in his Biochemistry studies. His Sialic acid research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Molecular biology and Antibody.
He has researched Glycan in several fields, including Glycoconjugate and Computational biology. His Immunology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Cancer research and Heparin. His work carried out in the field of SIGLEC brings together such families of science as Innate immune system, Gene and Cell biology.
His primary areas of investigation include Sialic acid, SIGLEC, Biochemistry, Glycan and Microbiology. His Sialic acid study also includes
Ajit Varki works mostly in the field of Glycan, limiting it down to concerns involving Glycosylation and, occasionally, Mannose. His Microbiology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Host adaptation, Virulence and Neuraminidase. His work in Immune system covers topics such as Gene which are related to areas like Sialic acid binding.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Glycan, Sialic acid, SIGLEC, Cell biology and Biochemistry. The study incorporates disciplines such as Organism, Plasma protein binding and Computational biology in addition to Glycan. N-Glycolylneuraminic acid is the focus of his Sialic acid research.
His SIGLEC research incorporates elements of Molecular mimicry, Sialic Acid Binding Immunoglobulin-like Lectins and Microbiology. His studies deal with areas such as Regulation of gene expression, Sialome, Polysialic acid and Differential expression as well as Cell biology. Biochemistry is closely attributed to Mucus in his work.
