Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Virus
  • Gene
  • Internal medicine

Virology, Coronavirus, Virus, Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus and Immunology are his primary areas of study. His Virology research incorporates elements of TMPRSS2, Receptor and Antibody, Serology. His study looks at the intersection of TMPRSS2 and topics like Protease with Proteases.

His Proteases research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Serine protease, Cytokine storm and Transmembrane Protease Serine 2. Christian Drosten combines subjects such as RNA, Alphacoronavirus, Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, Middle East respiratory syndrome and Coronaviridae with his study of Coronavirus. Christian Drosten interconnects Human metapneumovirus, Diffuse alveolar damage and Novel virus in the investigation of issues within Virus.

His most cited work include:

  • SARS-CoV-2 Cell Entry Depends on ACE2 and TMPRSS2 and Is Blocked by a Clinically Proven Protease Inhibitor (6831 citations)
  • SARS-CoV-2 Cell Entry Depends on ACE2 and TMPRSS2 and Is Blocked by a Clinically Proven Protease Inhibitor (6831 citations)
  • Identification of a novel coronavirus in patients with severe acute respiratory syndrome. (3175 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Virology, Virus, Coronavirus, Immunology and Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus. His Virology research integrates issues from Antibody, Serology and Genome. His Genome research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Phylogenetics and Phylogenetic tree.

His Virus research includes themes of RNA and Interferon. His Coronavirus research integrates issues from Middle East respiratory syndrome, Coronaviridae and Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2. Christian Drosten interconnects Pandemic and Antigen in the investigation of issues within Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Virology (70.17%)
  • Virus (35.27%)
  • Coronavirus (27.39%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (12.01%)
  • Virology (70.17%)
  • Coronavirus (27.39%)

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

His primary areas of study are Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, Virology, Coronavirus, Coronavirus disease 2019 and Virus. His work carried out in the field of Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 brings together such families of science as Pandemic, Viral load, Antigen and 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak. His biological study focuses on Viral replication.

His Coronavirus research also works with subjects such as

  • Pneumonia which connect with Lung,
  • Transmission most often made with reference to Asymptomatic. His work focuses on many connections between Virus and other disciplines, such as Innate immune system, that overlap with his field of interest in Interferon. His TMPRSS2 study combines topics in areas such as Receptor and Protease.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • SARS-CoV-2 Cell Entry Depends on ACE2 and TMPRSS2 and Is Blocked by a Clinically Proven Protease Inhibitor (6831 citations)
  • SARS-CoV-2 Cell Entry Depends on ACE2 and TMPRSS2 and Is Blocked by a Clinically Proven Protease Inhibitor (6831 citations)
  • Detection of 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) by real-time RT-PCR. (3018 citations)

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

  • Virus
  • Gene
  • Internal medicine

Christian Drosten mainly focuses on Virology, Coronavirus, Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, Virus and 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak. His Virology study focuses on Vero cell in particular. His Coronavirus research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Outbreak, Antigen, Coronaviridae, Pandemic and Betacoronavirus.

His studies in Virus integrate themes in fields like Point of care and Point-of-care testing. His work deals with themes such as Receptor and Protease, which intersect with TMPRSS2. His Receptor research incorporates themes from Proteases, Cytokine storm, Serine protease and Transmembrane Protease Serine 2.
