Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • DNA

His main research concerns Plasmodium falciparum, Cell biology, Virology, Gene and Malaria. Alan F. Cowman interconnects Receptor, Drug resistance and Antigen in the investigation of issues within Plasmodium falciparum. His work carried out in the field of Cell biology brings together such families of science as N-Acetylneuraminic acid, Membrane protein, KAHRP and Glycophorin.

His Virology study deals with Plasmid intersecting with Transfection. His Gene research incorporates themes from Molecular biology and Dihydropteroate synthase. His Malaria study incorporates themes from Disease, Microbiology and Intensive care medicine.

His most cited work include:

  • Targeting malaria virulence and remodeling proteins to the host erythrocyte. (756 citations)
  • Pgh1 modulates sensitivity and resistance to multiple antimalarials in Plasmodium falciparum (735 citations)
  • Invasion of Red Blood Cells by Malaria Parasites (722 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Plasmodium falciparum, Virology, Cell biology, Malaria and Genetics. His research in Plasmodium falciparum intersects with topics in Molecular biology, Antibody, Antigen and Biochemistry. His Virology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Acquired immune system, Immune system, Apical membrane antigen 1, Plasmodium vivax and Epitope.

The various areas that Alan F. Cowman examines in his Cell biology study include Apicomplexa, Receptor, Red blood cell and Membrane protein. His Receptor research includes elements of Plasma protein binding and Protein family. In Malaria, Alan F. Cowman works on issues like Pharmacology, which are connected to Mefloquine.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Plasmodium falciparum (85.48%)
  • Virology (34.02%)
  • Cell biology (40.25%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2020)?

  • Plasmodium falciparum (85.48%)
  • Cell biology (40.25%)
  • Virology (34.02%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Plasmodium falciparum, Cell biology, Virology, Malaria and Antibody. His Plasmodium study in the realm of Plasmodium falciparum interacts with subjects such as Basigin. His Cell biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Receptor, Complement system, Complement receptor and Gene.

In his research, Recombinant DNA is intimately related to Plasmodium vivax, which falls under the overarching field of Virology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Parasitology, Pharmacology and In vivo. His Antibody study combines topics in areas such as Immune system, Antigen and Reticulocyte.

Between 2013 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Malaria: Biology and Disease. (268 citations)
  • Malaria: Biology and Disease. (268 citations)
  • Revealing the Sequence and Resulting Cellular Morphology of Receptor-Ligand Interactions during Plasmodium falciparum Invasion of Erythrocytes (165 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • DNA

Alan F. Cowman focuses on Plasmodium falciparum, Cell biology, Receptor, Virology and Plasma protein binding. His work on Plasmodium as part of general Plasmodium falciparum study is frequently linked to Basigin, bridging the gap between disciplines. Alan F. Cowman combines subjects such as Red blood cell, Actin cytoskeleton and Classical complement pathway with his study of Cell biology.

The Receptor study combines topics in areas such as Serine protease, Live cell imaging and Gene. His work deals with themes such as Alternative complement pathway, Factor H, Complement system, Complement component 2 and CD46, which intersect with Virology. His study looks at the relationship between Antibody and fields such as Infectious disease, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.
