Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Immune system
  • Gene
  • Virus

His primary areas of investigation include Epitope, Immunology, Virology, Major histocompatibility complex and T cell. The study incorporates disciplines such as Cytotoxic T cell, CTL*, Human leukocyte antigen and Immune system in addition to Epitope. His research combines Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 and Immunology.

His Virology research incorporates themes from Vaccinia and Immunodominance. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Peptide sequence, Computational biology, Peptide and Cell biology. His research in T cell intersects with topics in Molecular biology and Betacoronavirus.

His most cited work include:

  • Targets of T Cell Responses to SARS-CoV-2 Coronavirus in Humans with COVID-19 Disease and Unexposed Individuals. (1252 citations)
  • Targets of T Cell Responses to SARS-CoV-2 Coronavirus in Humans with COVID-19 Disease and Unexposed Individuals. (1252 citations)
  • The relationship between class I binding affinity and immunogenicity of potential cytotoxic T cell epitopes. (770 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Epitope, Immunology, T cell, Virology and Antigen. His work deals with themes such as Immunogenicity, Human leukocyte antigen, Cytotoxic T cell, CTL* and Major histocompatibility complex, which intersect with Epitope. His research on Immunology frequently links to adjacent areas such as Disease.

His T cell study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Molecular biology, Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 and Cell biology. The concepts of his Virology study are interwoven with issues in Epitope mapping, CD8 and Immunodominance. In the subject of general Antigen, his work in MHC restriction is often linked to Context, thereby combining diverse domains of study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Epitope (61.99%)
  • Immunology (55.32%)
  • T cell (48.54%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • T cell (48.54%)
  • Immunology (55.32%)
  • Immune system (37.72%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include T cell, Immunology, Immune system, Epitope and Antigen. His work carried out in the field of T cell brings together such families of science as CD8 and Cell biology. He has researched Immunology in several fields, including Tuberculosis, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Disease and Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2.

Alessandro Sette interconnects Epitope mapping and Vaccination in the investigation of issues within Immune system. His study in Epitope is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Virology, Human leukocyte antigen, Cytotoxic T cell, Computational biology and Major histocompatibility complex. His Antigen research includes elements of Peripheral blood mononuclear cell and Antigen presentation.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Targets of T Cell Responses to SARS-CoV-2 Coronavirus in Humans with COVID-19 Disease and Unexposed Individuals. (1252 citations)
  • Targets of T Cell Responses to SARS-CoV-2 Coronavirus in Humans with COVID-19 Disease and Unexposed Individuals. (1252 citations)
  • A Sequence Homology and Bioinformatic Approach Can Predict Candidate Targets for Immune Responses to SARS-CoV-2 (451 citations)

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

  • Immune system
  • Gene
  • Virus

Alessandro Sette focuses on T cell, Epitope, Immunology, Immune system and CD8. His T cell study incorporates themes from α synuclein, Human leukocyte antigen, Pathogenesis and Cell biology. His research integrates issues of Cytotoxic T cell, Computational biology, Major histocompatibility complex and Virology in his study of Epitope.

His studies in Immunology integrate themes in fields like Potency, Disease, Betacoronavirus and Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2. His Immune system study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Cell, Outbreak, Epitope mapping and Common cold. His CD8 research focuses on Acquired immune system and how it relates to Autoimmunity, T-cell receptor and Effector.
