Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Immune system
  • Virus

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Immunology, Innate immune system, Immune system, Cell biology and Virology. Immunology is closely attributed to Disease in her research. Her research on Innate immune system is centered around Genetics and Receptor.

Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Interferon and Regulation of gene expression. Akiko Iwasaki interconnects Autophagy, ATG5, Programmed cell death and Dendritic cell in the investigation of issues within Cell biology. Many of her research projects under Virology are closely connected to Extramural with Extramural, tying the diverse disciplines of science together.

Her most cited work include:

  • Toll-like receptor control of the adaptive immune responses. (3460 citations)
  • Guidelines for the use and interpretation of assays for monitoring autophagy (3242 citations)
  • Guidelines for the use and interpretation of assays for monitoring autophagy in higher eukaryotes (1951 citations)

What are the main themes of her work throughout her whole career to date?

Akiko Iwasaki focuses on Immunology, Immune system, Virology, Innate immune system and Cell biology. Her study in Immunity, Antibody, Acquired immune system, T cell and Antigen falls within the category of Immunology. As a part of the same scientific family, Akiko Iwasaki mostly works in the field of Immune system, focusing on Cytotoxic T cell and, on occasion, CD8.

Her studies deal with areas such as Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 and Coronavirus disease 2019 as well as Virology. Her work in Innate immune system tackles topics such as Interferon which are related to areas like Interferon regulatory factors and Molecular biology. Her studies in Cell biology integrate themes in fields like Autophagy and RNA, Gene.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (62.90%)
  • Immune system (43.24%)
  • Virology (36.36%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Immune system (43.24%)
  • Immunology (62.90%)
  • Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (21.38%)

In recent papers she was focusing on the following fields of study:

Akiko Iwasaki spends much of her time researching Immune system, Immunology, Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, Coronavirus disease 2019 and Virology. Her Immune system research incorporates themes from Fetus and Antibody. Her study in Immunology focuses on Innate immune system and Virus.

In her study, Extracellular and Autoantibody is inextricably linked to Phenotype, which falls within the broad field of Innate immune system. Akiko Iwasaki combines subjects such as RNA, Cycle threshold, Primer and 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak with her study of Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2. The concepts of her Coronavirus disease 2019 study are interwoven with issues in Antibody response, Asymptomatic, Saliva and Intensive care medicine.

Between 2019 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Longitudinal analyses reveal immunological misfiring in severe COVID-19. (429 citations)
  • Longitudinal analyses reveal immunological misfiring in severe COVID-19. (429 citations)
  • Saliva or Nasopharyngeal Swab Specimens for Detection of SARS-CoV-2. (280 citations)

In her most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Gene
  • Immune system
  • Virus

Her main research concerns Immunology, Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, Immune system, Coronavirus disease 2019 and Virology. Akiko Iwasaki works in the field of Immunology, namely Innate immune system. Her Innate immune system research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Chemokine and T cell.

Her work deals with themes such as Viral rna, Public health interventions, Computational biology and 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak, which intersect with Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2. The Immune system study combines topics in areas such as Antibody and Antigen. In Virology, she works on issues like Saliva, which are connected to Infectious virus, RNA, RNA Stability and RNA stabilization.
