Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Immune system
  • Cancer

His primary areas of investigation include Immunology, Cell biology, Dendritic cell, Antigen and Immune system. His study in Immunology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Cytotoxic T cell and Cancer research, Melanoma. His Cell biology study combines topics in areas such as Molecular biology, Cell adhesion, Follicular dendritic cells and Cell–cell interaction.

His Molecular biology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as T lymphocyte, Monocyte, Interleukin 4, Monoclonal antibody and Interleukin 10. The concepts of his Dendritic cell study are interwoven with issues in T cell, Antigen-presenting cell, In vivo and Lymph node. His research investigates the link between Immune system and topics such as Cancer that cross with problems in Ex vivo and Pathology.

His most cited work include:

  • Interleukin 10(IL-10) inhibits cytokine synthesis by human monocytes: an autoregulatory role of IL-10 produced by monocytes. (3359 citations)
  • DC-SIGN, a dendritic cell-specific HIV-1-binding protein that enhances trans-infection of T cells (2106 citations)
  • Interleukin 10 (IL-10) and viral IL-10 strongly reduce antigen-specific human T cell proliferation by diminishing the antigen-presenting capacity of monocytes via downregulation of class II major histocompatibility complex expression. (1738 citations)

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

Carl G. Figdor mainly investigates Cell biology, Immunology, Immune system, Dendritic cell and Antigen. Carl G. Figdor focuses mostly in the field of Cell biology, narrowing it down to topics relating to Cell adhesion and, in certain cases, Intercellular Adhesion Molecule-1. His Immunology research integrates issues from Cytotoxic T cell and Cancer research, Melanoma.

His Immune system research incorporates themes from Cancer and Cell, Biochemistry. His studies deal with areas such as Chemokine, Major histocompatibility complex and In vivo as well as Dendritic cell. His Antigen research includes themes of Molecular biology, Antibody and Antigen presentation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cell biology (37.56%)
  • Immunology (36.23%)
  • Immune system (24.74%)

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

  • Immune system (24.74%)
  • Dendritic cell (23.27%)
  • Immunotherapy (15.61%)

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

Carl G. Figdor focuses on Immune system, Dendritic cell, Immunotherapy, Immunology and Cell biology. His Immune system research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Cytotoxic T cell, Immunosuppression, Apoptosis and Antigen. His Dendritic cell study incorporates themes from Gene expression profiling, Antigen-presenting cell, CD14, Vaccination and Primary tumor.

His Immunotherapy research includes elements of Tumor microenvironment and Myeloid, Cancer research, Melanoma. Immunology is often connected to Myeloid-derived Suppressor Cell in his work. His Cell biology research incorporates elements of Cell, Tetraspanin, Receptor and Membrane protein.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Dendritic Cell–Based Immunotherapy: State of the Art and Beyond (173 citations)
  • Effective Clinical Responses in Metastatic Melanoma Patients after Vaccination with Primary Myeloid Dendritic Cells (123 citations)
  • Migrating into the Tumor: a Roadmap for T Cells. (96 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Immune system
  • Cancer

His primary scientific interests are in Immune system, Immunology, Dendritic cell, Cell biology and T cell. His Immune system study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as In vivo, In vitro and Antigen. His research is interdisciplinary, bridging the disciplines of Cancer and Immunology.

His studies in Dendritic cell integrate themes in fields like Myeloid and Interleukin. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Cell, Molecular biology, Membrane, Monocyte and Regulation of gene expression. Within one scientific family, he focuses on topics pertaining to Cytotoxic T cell under T cell, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Preclinical imaging.
