Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Virus
  • Immune system

Andreas Zurbriggen spends much of his time researching Virology, Immunology, Canine distemper, Virus and Antibody. His Virology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of In vivo, Pathogenesis and Cell biology. His studies deal with areas such as Culicoides, Central nervous system and Pathology as well as Immunology.

His Pathology research incorporates themes from Neutrophilia and Lymphocyte. In Canine distemper, Andreas Zurbriggen works on issues like Myelin, which are connected to Multiple sclerosis and Inflammation. His work investigates the relationship between Virus and topics such as Antigen that intersect with problems in Subependymal zone.

His most cited work include:

  • Soluble Dimeric Prion Protein Binds PrPSc In Vivo and Antagonizes Prion Disease (118 citations)
  • Demyelination in canine distemper virus infection: a review (115 citations)
  • A monomer-dimer equilibrium of a cellular prion protein (PrPC) not observed with recombinant PrP. (87 citations)

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

Andreas Zurbriggen mainly focuses on Virology, Canine distemper, Virus, Pathology and Immunology. His Virology study incorporates themes from Molecular biology, Bovine spongiform encephalopathy, Scrapie and Virulence. His Canine distemper research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in In situ hybridization, Antigen, Keratinocyte, Myelin and Paramyxoviridae.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Cell culture, Cytolysis and Fusion protein in addition to Virus. His Fusion protein study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Glycoprotein and Cell biology. He combines subjects such as Apoptosis, Central nervous system and Oligodendrocyte with his study of Pathology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Virology (46.41%)
  • Canine distemper (34.81%)
  • Virus (31.49%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2010-2018)?

  • Virology (46.41%)
  • Pathology (26.52%)
  • Immunology (25.97%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Virology, Pathology, Immunology, Cell biology and Lipid bilayer fusion. His Virology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Scrapie, Bovine spongiform encephalopathy, Prion protein, Phenotype and Microbiology. His work on Lymph as part of general Pathology study is frequently connected to Nervous system, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them.

His Immunology research includes elements of Receptor and Disease. The study incorporates disciplines such as Morbillivirus, Virus, Canine distemper and Viral entry in addition to Cell biology. The various areas that he examines in his Lipid bilayer fusion study include Plasma protein binding, Biophysics, Molecular biology, Fusion protein and Protein structure.

Between 2010 and 2018, his most popular works were:

  • Neurotropic Astrovirus in Cattle with Nonsuppurative Encephalitis in Europe (71 citations)
  • Structural Rearrangements of the Central Region of the Morbillivirus Attachment Protein Stalk Domain Trigger F Protein Refolding for Membrane Fusion (56 citations)
  • Mechanism for Active Membrane Fusion Triggering by Morbillivirus Attachment Protein (46 citations)
