Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Immune system
  • Gene
  • Cytokine

His scientific interests lie mostly in Immunology, Cytokine, Cell biology, Immune system and Interleukin 12. His research related to Schistosoma mansoni, Antigen, Interferon gamma, T cell and Immunity might be considered part of Immunology. Alan Sher has included themes like Spleen, Antibody and Lymphokine in his Cytokine study.

His Cell biology research integrates issues from Antigen presentation, Cellular differentiation and CD40. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Macrophage, B cell and Virology. His Interleukin 12 research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Tumor necrosis factor alpha, Chemokine receptor, Inflammatory bowel disease and Toxoplasma gondii.

His most cited work include:

  • Functional diversity of helper T lymphocytes. (4056 citations)
  • Analysis of Fractalkine Receptor CX3CR1 Function by Targeted Deletion and Green Fluorescent Protein Reporter Gene Insertion (1768 citations)
  • Cooperation of Toll-like receptor signals in innate immune defence. (1163 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Immunology, Schistosoma mansoni, Immune system, Antigen and Virology. His Immunology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Interleukin 12 and Cell biology. In Cell biology, Alan Sher works on issues like T cell, which are connected to Priming.

His Schistosoma mansoni research incorporates themes from Molecular biology, Interleukin 4, Antibody and Vaccination. His biological study deals with issues like Microbiology, which deal with fields such as Mycobacterium tuberculosis, In vivo and In vitro. His Cytokine research incorporates elements of Tumor necrosis factor alpha and Spleen.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (63.34%)
  • Schistosoma mansoni (26.49%)
  • Immune system (23.99%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2009-2021)?

  • Immunology (63.34%)
  • Mycobacterium tuberculosis (9.02%)
  • Tuberculosis (6.91%)

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

Alan Sher spends much of his time researching Immunology, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Tuberculosis, Immune system and Cell biology. As a part of the same scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Immunology, focusing on Virology and, on occasion, Immunosuppression. Alan Sher has included themes like Antibiotics, Microbiology, Heme oxygenase, Inflammation and Caspase 1 in his Mycobacterium tuberculosis study.

His Tuberculosis study also includes

  • Lung which is related to area like Matrix metalloproteinase,
  • Cell most often made with reference to In vivo. His studies deal with areas such as Interferon, Immunopathology and Effector as well as Immune system. The Cell biology study combines topics in areas such as Receptor, Inflammasome and Autocrine signalling.

Between 2009 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Vaccine Adjuvants: Putting Innate Immunity to Work (1111 citations)
  • Type I interferons in infectious disease. (884 citations)
  • Activation of Autophagy by Inflammatory Signals Limits IL-1β Production by Targeting Ubiquitinated Inflammasomes for Destruction (864 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Immune system
  • Enzyme

His primary areas of study are Immunology, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Tuberculosis, Immune system and Immunity. In the field of Immunology, his study on Antigen, Acquired immune system and Cytokine overlaps with subjects such as Immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome. The concepts of his Mycobacterium tuberculosis study are interwoven with issues in Inhibitory postsynaptic potential, Lung, Matrix metalloproteinase, Interferon type I and Cytotoxic T cell.

His Tuberculosis research integrates issues from Antibiotics, Necrosis, B7-H1 Antigen, Membrane glycoproteins and In vivo. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Entamoeba histolytica, Hormone, Allele and Cytokine receptor. His Immunity research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Innate immune system and Toxoplasma gondii.
