Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Immune system
  • Cytokine

Christian Kurts focuses on Cytotoxic T cell, Immunology, Antigen presentation, Antigen-presenting cell and Cell biology. His Cytotoxic T cell research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in T cell and CD8. The T cell study combines topics in areas such as Interleukin 17 and CD40.

His Immunology study frequently links to other fields, such as Kidney. He works mostly in the field of Antigen presentation, limiting it down to topics relating to Antigen and, in certain cases, Endocytosis. His Antigen-presenting cell research incorporates themes from Natural killer T cell and Cancer research.

His most cited work include:

  • Class I–restricted Cross-Presentation of Exogenous Self-Antigens Leads to Deletion of Autoreactive CD8+ T Cells (656 citations)
  • Constitutive class I-restricted exogenous presentation of self antigens in vivo. (580 citations)
  • Efficient presentation of exogenous antigen by liver endothelial cells to CD8+ T cells results in antigen-specific T-cell tolerance. (573 citations)

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

His main research concerns Immunology, Cytotoxic T cell, Cell biology, Immune system and T cell. His Immunology study frequently involves adjacent topics like Kidney. His Cytotoxic T cell research focuses on subjects like CD8, which are linked to Adoptive cell transfer.

In his study, CTL* is strongly linked to Cross-presentation, which falls under the umbrella field of Cell biology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Cancer research and Priming. He has researched Antigen in several fields, including Molecular biology and Endocytosis.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (59.85%)
  • Cytotoxic T cell (29.92%)
  • Cell biology (26.89%)

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

  • Immunology (59.85%)
  • Cell biology (26.89%)
  • Kidney (20.45%)

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

Christian Kurts mainly focuses on Immunology, Cell biology, Kidney, Immune system and Inflammation. His work deals with themes such as Macrophage and Lung, which intersect with Immunology. His research integrates issues of T cell, T-cell receptor, Dendritic cell, Cross-presentation and Cytotoxic T cell in his study of Cell biology.

His T cell study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Neurodegeneration, Priming, CD8 and Function. His research in Kidney intersects with topics in Acute kidney injury, Mononuclear phagocyte system, Kidney disease and Renal function. He has included themes like Fibrosis and Effector in his Immune system study.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Guidelines for the use of flow cytometry and cell sorting in immunological studies (second edition) (345 citations)
  • Guidelines for the use of flow cytometry and cell sorting in immunological studies (301 citations)
  • Fully Automated Evaluation of Total Glomerular Number and Capillary Tuft Size in Nephritic Kidneys Using Lightsheet Microscopy (139 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Immune system
  • Cytokine

Christian Kurts spends much of his time researching Cell biology, Kidney, Immune system, Immunology and Glomerulonephritis. His Cell biology research includes themes of Cellular differentiation, Dendritic cell, T-cell receptor and Green fluorescent protein. His Dendritic cell study incorporates themes from Cellular immunity, Chemokine, Priming, XCR1 and Cytotoxic T cell.

His Kidney research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Nephritis, Pathology, Renal function and Kidney disease. The study incorporates disciplines such as Signal transduction and Paracaspase in addition to Immune system. His Immunology study frequently intersects with other fields, such as Jejunum.
