Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Immune system

Anna M. Blom spends much of her time researching Complement system, Classical complement pathway, Complement C4b-Binding Protein, C4b-binding protein and Factor H. Her Complement system research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Biochemistry, Microbiology and Cell biology. In Biochemistry, she works on issues like Complement control protein, which are connected to Binding site.

Her Classical complement pathway research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Alternative complement pathway, Plasma protein binding, Complement inhibitor, Moraxella and Complement membrane attack complex. Her C4b-binding protein research includes themes of Molecular biology, B-cell receptor and Germinal center. Her work carried out in the field of Factor H brings together such families of science as Anaphylatoxin, CD46 and Complement receptor.

Her most cited work include:

  • Neutrophil extracellular traps that are not degraded in systemic lupus erythematosus activate complement exacerbating the disease. (315 citations)
  • Complement activation and inhibition: a delicate balance. (267 citations)
  • Complement evasion strategies of pathogens-acquisition of inhibitors and beyond. (186 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Complement system, Biochemistry, Complement inhibitor, Immunology and Cell biology. Her Microbiology research extends to the thematically linked field of Complement system. Her Biochemistry study typically links adjacent topics like Complement membrane attack complex.

Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Alternative complement pathway and Complement receptor. Her Factor H study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Decay-accelerating factor and CD46. Her Complement control protein research incorporates themes from Molecular biology, Binding site and Virology.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Complement system (43.51%)
  • Biochemistry (22.32%)
  • Complement inhibitor (20.73%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Complement system (43.51%)
  • Cell biology (19.82%)
  • Immunology (20.27%)

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

Anna M. Blom mostly deals with Complement system, Cell biology, Immunology, Complement inhibitor and Complement. Her research integrates issues of Internal medicine and Disease in her study of Complement system. Anna M. Blom has included themes like Autophagy, Cellular homeostasis, Receptor and Pancreatic islets in her Cell biology study.

Her Immunology research includes themes of Prekallikrein and ARDS. Her Complement inhibitor research includes elements of Porin, Antimicrobial and Antibiotic resistance. Her Complement factor I research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Wild type and CD46.

Between 2017 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • C3 glomerulopathy — understanding a rare complement-driven renal disease (63 citations)
  • Mature neutrophils suppress T cell immunity in ovarian cancer microenvironment. (39 citations)
  • Complement Component C3 Is Highly Expressed in Human Pancreatic Islets and Prevents β Cell Death via ATG16L1 Interaction and Autophagy Regulation (38 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Immune system

Her main research concerns Complement system, Cell biology, Immune system, Molecular biology and Antibody. Her research on Complement system concerns the broader Immunology. Her research in Cell biology intersects with topics in Autophagy, ATG16L1, Downregulation and upregulation, Beta cell and Innate immune system.

Anna M. Blom has researched Immune system in several fields, including Streptococcus, Myeloma protein, Microbiology and Protein–protein interaction. Her research investigates the connection with Microbiology and areas like Complement membrane attack complex which intersect with concerns in Pathogenesis. The study incorporates disciplines such as In vivo, In vitro, Immune complex and Immunoglobulin G in addition to Molecular biology.
