Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Virus
  • Gene
  • Antibody

His main research concerns Virology, Dengue virus, Virus, Antibody and Dengue fever. His Virology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Epitope, Bacterial vaccine, Borrelia burgdorferi and Immune system. Aravinda M. de Silva has researched Dengue virus in several fields, including Serotype, Flavivirus and Monoclonal antibody.

His work on Infectivity as part of general Virus study is frequently linked to Mesocricetus, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. His Antibody research integrates issues from Plasma protein binding, Antigen and Microbiology. His Dengue fever research incorporates elements of Viral evolution, Outbreak and Phylogenetic tree.

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)
  • The Human Immune Response to Dengue Virus Is Dominated by Highly Cross-Reactive Antibodies Endowed with Neutralizing and Enhancing Activity (455 citations)
  • SARS-CoV-2 Reverse Genetics Reveals a Variable Infection Gradient in the Respiratory Tract. (420 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Virology, Dengue virus, Dengue fever, Antibody and Epitope. While the research belongs to areas of Virology, Aravinda M. de Silva spends his time largely on the problem of Monoclonal antibody, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Plasma protein binding. Aravinda M. de Silva combines subjects such as Serotype and Immunity with his study of Dengue virus.

His work is dedicated to discovering how Dengue fever, Seroprevalence are connected with Cohort and other disciplines. His studies in Antibody integrate themes in fields like Immune system, Microbiology and Recombinant DNA. His Epitope research includes elements of Viral envelope, Glycoprotein and Protein subunit.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Virology (81.46%)
  • Dengue virus (63.58%)
  • Dengue fever (48.34%)

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

  • Virology (81.46%)
  • Dengue virus (63.58%)
  • Antibody (37.75%)

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

Aravinda M. de Silva mostly deals with Virology, Dengue virus, Antibody, Zika virus and Dengue fever. His research integrates issues of Epitope and Immune system in his study of Virology. In his work, Polyclonal antibodies is strongly intertwined with Monoclonal antibody, which is a subfield of Epitope.

In general Dengue virus study, his work on Dengue vaccine often relates to the realm of Sri lanka, thereby connecting several areas of interest. His Dengue fever research integrates issues from B cell, Seroprevalence, Cohort and Vaccine research. His work in the fields of Virus, such as Vero cell, overlaps with other areas such as Respiratory tract.

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)
  • SARS-CoV-2 Reverse Genetics Reveals a Variable Infection Gradient in the Respiratory Tract. (420 citations)
  • Selective and cross-reactive SARS-CoV-2 T cell epitopes in unexposed humans. (335 citations)

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

  • Virus
  • Gene
  • Immune system

Aravinda M. de Silva focuses on Virology, Virus, Antibody, Epitope and Antigen. The Virology study combines topics in areas such as Pathogenesis and In vivo. His Infectivity study in the realm of Virus connects with subjects such as Mesocricetus.

His work in Antibody addresses subjects such as Zika virus, which are connected to disciplines such as Dengue fever. Aravinda M. de Silva has researched Epitope in several fields, including ELISPOT, Flavivirus and Immune system. His research is interdisciplinary, bridging the disciplines of Serotype and Dengue virus.
