What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Virus
  • Immune system

Bruce D. Walker mainly focuses on Immunology, Virology, Virus, Cytotoxic T cell and Epitope. His study in Human leukocyte antigen, Immune system, Viral load, Viremia and CD8 is carried out as part of his Immunology studies. His Virology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in T cell, Antibody, CTL* and Antigen.

His work deals with themes such as Mutation and Cellular immunity, which intersect with Virus. The various areas that he examines in his Cytotoxic T cell study include Molecular biology and Major histocompatibility complex. His study in Epitope is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Antigen processing, HIV Antigens, Histocompatibility and Group-specific antigen.

His most cited work include:

  • Hepatitis C Virus Infection (2715 citations)
  • PD-1 expression on HIV-specific T cells is associated with T-cell exhaustion and disease progression (2076 citations)
  • PD-1 expression on HIV-specific T cells is associated with T-cell exhaustion and disease progression (2076 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Immunology, Virology, Cytotoxic T cell, Immune system and Virus. His Immunology study is mostly concerned with Viral load, CD8, T cell, Viremia and Antibody. He interconnects Epitope, Human leukocyte antigen, Antigen and CTL* in the investigation of issues within Virology.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Viral evolution and Allele in addition to Human leukocyte antigen. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Molecular biology and Major histocompatibility complex. His Immune system research includes elements of HIV vaccine and Cytokine.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (102.37%)
  • Virology (97.04%)
  • Cytotoxic T cell (52.37%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Immunology (102.37%)
  • Virology (97.04%)
  • Immune system (52.28%)

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

Bruce D. Walker focuses on Immunology, Virology, Immune system, Cytotoxic T cell and CD8. His is involved in several facets of Immunology study, as is seen by his studies on Antibody, T cell, Viral load, Viremia and Viral replication. His Virology research is mostly focused on the topic Virus.

Bruce D. Walker focuses mostly in the field of Immune system, narrowing it down to topics relating to Downregulation and upregulation and, in certain cases, Viral pathogenesis. The Cytotoxic T cell study combines topics in areas such as Acquired immune system and Interferon. His CD8 research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Lentivirus, Molecular biology, HIV vaccine and T-cell receptor.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Viraemia suppressed in HIV-1-infected humans by broadly neutralizing antibody 3BNC117 (459 citations)
  • Cervicovaginal bacteria are a major modulator of host inflammatory responses in the female genital tract (280 citations)
  • Cervicovaginal bacteria are a major modulator of host inflammatory responses in the female genital tract (280 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Immune system
  • Internal medicine

His scientific interests lie mostly in Immunology, Virology, Immune system, Viremia and Antibody. His work deals with themes such as Young adult and Receptor, which intersect with Immunology. His Virology research incorporates elements of Epitope, Antigen and Effector.

His research investigates the link between Immune system and topics such as Cytotoxic T cell that cross with problems in Acquired immune system, T cell, Human leukocyte antigen and Major histocompatibility complex. The study incorporates disciplines such as Downregulation and upregulation and Viral replication in addition to Viremia. His study looks at the relationship between CD8 and topics such as HIV vaccine, which overlap with Bystander effect.
