Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Immune system
  • Gene
  • Cytokine

Immunology, Interleukin 12, Immune system, T cell and Cell biology are her primary areas of study. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Cell and Cytotoxic T cell, Natural killer cell. Her Interleukin 12 research incorporates elements of Interferon gamma, Cytokine, Natural killer T cell, Lymphocytic choriomeningitis and Alpha interferon.

While the research belongs to areas of Immune system, she spends her time largely on the problem of Interferon, intersecting her research to questions surrounding Interleukin, Viral replication and Dendritic cell. Her T cell research incorporates themes from CD8, Antigen, Cellular differentiation and STAT1. As part of one scientific family, Christine A. Biron deals mainly with the area of Cell biology, narrowing it down to issues related to the Acquired immune system, and often Innate immune system.

Her most cited work include:

  • NATURAL KILLER CELLS IN ANTIVIRAL DEFENSE: Function and Regulation by Innate Cytokines (1955 citations)
  • Severe herpesvirus infections in an adolescent without natural killer cells. (1085 citations)
  • TNF/iNOS-producing dendritic cells mediate innate immune defense against bacterial infection. (964 citations)

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

Her main research concerns Immunology, Immune system, Interleukin 12, Cell biology and Cytokine. Her Immunology study frequently links to related topics such as Cytotoxic T cell. Her Immune system research includes themes of Interferon, Virology, Receptor and Endogeny.

The concepts of her Interleukin 12 study are interwoven with issues in Interleukin, Cellular differentiation, IL-2 receptor and Interferon gamma. Her studies examine the connections between Cell biology and genetics, as well as such issues in Cell, with regards to Cytotoxicity. The study incorporates disciplines such as Tumor necrosis factor alpha, Glucocorticoid, Cell type and STAT1 in addition to Cytokine.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (65.66%)
  • Immune system (31.93%)
  • Interleukin 12 (28.92%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2011-2020)?

  • Immunology (65.66%)
  • Cytotoxic T cell (22.89%)
  • Interleukin 12 (28.92%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Immunology, Cytotoxic T cell, Interleukin 12, Immune system and Cell biology. Her Immunology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both STAT protein and stat. Her Cytotoxic T cell research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Interleukin 4 and T-cell receptor.

Christine A. Biron combines subjects such as Ex vivo and Interleukin 21 with her study of Interleukin 12. Her biological study deals with issues like Cytotoxicity, which deal with fields such as Vaccination, Programmed Cell Death 1 Receptor and Viral infection. Her research integrates issues of Cell, Interferon gamma, Cell growth and STAT4 in her study of Cell biology.

Between 2011 and 2020, her most popular works were:

  • mTORC1-Dependent Metabolic Reprogramming Is a Prerequisite for NK Cell Effector Function (189 citations)
  • Mutations in GATA2 cause human NK cell deficiency with specific loss of the CD56bright subset (154 citations)
  • Natural history of patients with congenital dysfibrinogenemia. (76 citations)

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

  • Immune system
  • Gene
  • Cytokine

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Cell biology, Immunology, Interleukin 12, Cytotoxic T cell and Cell. Her Cell biology study combines topics in areas such as Molecular biology, STAT4 and Cell growth. Immunology is frequently linked to Cellular differentiation in her study.

Christine A. Biron has researched Interleukin 12 in several fields, including Acquired immune system, Cytokine and Immunity. The various areas that Christine A. Biron examines in her Cytotoxic T cell study include Enzyme activator, Interferon gamma and Effector. Her research in Cell intersects with topics in Receptor, Peripheral blood mononuclear cell, Downregulation and upregulation and JAK-STAT signaling pathway.
