Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Tuberculosis

Tuberculosis, Immunology, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Intensive care medicine and Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus are his primary areas of study. His Tuberculosis study incorporates themes from Clinical trial, Surgery, Drug resistance and Pharmacology. His Immunology research incorporates themes from Disease, Lung and Pneumonia.

His Mycobacterium tuberculosis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Global health, Internal medicine, Treatment regimen and Culture conversion. His Intensive care medicine research integrates issues from Latent tuberculosis, Drug development, Tuberculosis diagnostics, Bedaquiline and Viral therapy. His Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus study combines topics in areas such as Outbreak, Virology, Middle East respiratory syndrome, Pediatrics and Coronavirus.

His most cited work include:

  • Real-time RT-PCR normalisation; strategies and considerations (1399 citations)
  • The continuing 2019-nCoV epidemic threat of novel coronaviruses to global health - The latest 2019 novel coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan, China. (1389 citations)
  • Epidemiological, demographic, and clinical characteristics of 47 cases of Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus disease from Saudi Arabia: a descriptive study (878 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Tuberculosis, Immunology, Intensive care medicine, Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Internal medicine. His research in Tuberculosis intersects with topics in Surgery, Environmental health, Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, Disease and Public health. While the research belongs to areas of Public health, he spends his time largely on the problem of Epidemiology, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Transmission.

Alimuddin Zumla has included themes like Latent tuberculosis and Virology in his Immunology study. In his study, Middle East respiratory syndrome is inextricably linked to Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus, which falls within the broad field of Virology. His studies examine the connections between Intensive care medicine and genetics, as well as such issues in MEDLINE, with regards to Family medicine.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Tuberculosis (49.88%)
  • Immunology (29.98%)
  • Intensive care medicine (23.30%)

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

  • Coronavirus disease 2019 (6.79%)
  • Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (4.68%)
  • Tuberculosis (49.88%)

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

Coronavirus disease 2019, Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, Tuberculosis, Pandemic and 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak are his primary areas of study. His study of Mycobacterium tuberculosis is a part of Tuberculosis. His study on Pandemic also encompasses disciplines like

  • Intensive care medicine which intersects with area such as Respiratory tract infections and Drug development,
  • Public health together with Outbreak, Contact tracing, Epidemiology and Health care.

His study looks at the intersection of Epidemiology and topics like Transmission with Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus and Middle East respiratory syndrome. In 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak, he works on issues like MEDLINE, which are connected to Family medicine, Malaria, Pregnancy and Pneumonia. The concepts of his Disease study are interwoven with issues in Clinical trial and Immunology.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The continuing 2019-nCoV epidemic threat of novel coronaviruses to global health - The latest 2019 novel coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan, China. (1389 citations)
  • Reducing mortality from 2019-nCoV: host-directed therapies should be an option. (199 citations)
  • Reducing mortality from 2019-nCoV: host-directed therapies should be an option. (199 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Virus

His primary scientific interests are in Coronavirus disease 2019, 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak, Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, Pandemic and Immunology. His work on Coronavirus and Middle East respiratory syndrome as part of general Coronavirus disease 2019 research is frequently linked to Sierra leone and Sub saharan, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. His 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Global health, MEDLINE and Pneumonia.

The various areas that Alimuddin Zumla examines in his Pandemic study include Malaria, Outbreak, Public health and Intensive care medicine. His Immunology study frequently draws connections between adjacent fields such as Allele. The Respiratory tract infections study which covers Infectious disease that intersects with Tuberculosis.
