Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Bacteria

Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Microbiology, Tuberculosis, Biophysics and Immunology are his primary areas of study. His research in Mycobacterium tuberculosis intersects with topics in Phagosome, Intracellular, Gaussia and Immunopathology. His Microbiology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Pathogenesis, Bacteria, Mycobacterium smegmatis, Luciferases and In vivo.

Brian D. Robertson interconnects Transmission, Virology, Epidemiology and Disease in the investigation of issues within Tuberculosis. His work on Membrane potential and Potassium channel as part of general Biophysics study is frequently linked to Time constant, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. His work on Antigen as part of general Immunology study is frequently connected to Genetically modified mouse, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them.

His most cited work include:

  • Tuberculosis: a problem with persistence. (319 citations)
  • A functional role for the two-pore domain potassium channel TASK-1 in cerebellar granule neurons. (243 citations)
  • Three pathways for trehalose biosynthesis in mycobacteria. (214 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Microbiology, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Tuberculosis, Gene and Biophysics. His Microbiology research integrates issues from Mutant, Immune system, In vivo and Mycobacterium smegmatis. His study on Mycobacterium smegmatis also encompasses disciplines like

  • Cell biology, which have a strong connection to Cell growth,
  • Molecular biology, which have a strong connection to Gene expression.

His studies deal with areas such as Antibiotics, Mycobacterium, Pathogenesis, Virology and Virulence as well as Mycobacterium tuberculosis. His studies in Tuberculosis integrate themes in fields like Disease, Immunology and MEDLINE. The concepts of his Biophysics study are interwoven with issues in Anesthesia and Inhibitory postsynaptic potential.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Microbiology (33.97%)
  • Mycobacterium tuberculosis (29.49%)
  • Tuberculosis (25.64%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Mycobacterium tuberculosis (29.49%)
  • Tuberculosis (25.64%)
  • Microbiology (33.97%)

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

His primary areas of study are Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Tuberculosis, Microbiology, Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex and Mycobacterium bovis. The Mycobacterium tuberculosis study combines topics in areas such as Pharmacokinetics, Metabolomics, Intensive care medicine, Genomics and Computational biology. His work deals with themes such as Immunology, Peptide, Drug delivery and Immunity, which intersect with Tuberculosis.

His Microbiology study incorporates themes from Immune system, In vivo and Isoniazid. His Mycobacterium bovis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Hemolin, Cecropin, Virulence and Virology. His Virology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Infectious disease and Disease pathogenesis.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Mycobacteria Modify Their Cell Size Control under Sub-Optimal Carbon Sources (28 citations)
  • Disruption of drug-resistant biofilms using de novo designed short α-helical antimicrobial peptides with idealized facial amphiphilicity. (28 citations)
  • Platelets Regulate Pulmonary Inflammation and Tissue Destruction in Tuberculosis (27 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Bacteria

His scientific interests lie mostly in Tuberculosis, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Microbiology, Immune system and Antimicrobial. Brian D. Robertson has researched Tuberculosis in several fields, including Disease pathogenesis, Immunity and Virology. His Mycobacterium tuberculosis research incorporates elements of Galleria mellonella, Virulence and Platelet, Immunology.

Brian D. Robertson combines subjects such as In vivo, Peptide and Intracellular parasite with his study of Microbiology. His Immune system research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Interleukin, Matrix metalloproteinase, Lung and Drug delivery. His Antimicrobial study combines topics in areas such as Antibiotics and Rifampicin.
