Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Immune system

His primary areas of study are Immunology, Cell biology, FOXP3, T cell and Genetics. All of his Immunology and Autoimmune disease, Arthritis, Autoimmunity, Insulitis and T-cell receptor investigations are sub-components of the entire Immunology study. Christophe Benoist interconnects Cell, T lymphocyte, Cellular differentiation, MHC class II and Skeletal muscle in the investigation of issues within Cell biology.

His work investigates the relationship between MHC class II and topics such as CD8 that intersect with problems in Molecular biology. His FOXP3 research includes themes of Cancer research, Transcription factor, IL-2 receptor and Effector. His research in T cell tackles topics such as Cytotoxic T cell which are related to areas like Diabetes mellitus.

His most cited work include:

  • Projection of an Immunological Self Shadow Within the Thymus by the Aire Protein (1932 citations)
  • Lean, but not obese, fat is enriched for a unique population of regulatory T cells that affect metabolic parameters (1412 citations)
  • Gut-residing segmented filamentous bacteria drive autoimmune arthritis via T helper 17 cells (1127 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Immunology, Genetics, Cell biology, Molecular biology and T cell. Arthritis, Antigen, Autoimmunity, FOXP3 and Autoimmune disease are subfields of Immunology in which his conducts study. His Arthritis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Inflammation, Autoantibody, Antibody and Rheumatoid arthritis.

His Cell biology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Phenotype, Cell and Cellular differentiation. His research integrates issues of Major histocompatibility complex, MHC class II, Receptor, T-cell receptor and Epitope in his study of Molecular biology. The concepts of his T cell study are interwoven with issues in Cytotoxic T cell and T lymphocyte.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (53.09%)
  • Genetics (23.27%)
  • Cell biology (26.18%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • FOXP3 (19.82%)
  • Immunology (53.09%)
  • Cell biology (26.18%)

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

FOXP3, Immunology, Cell biology, Transcription factor and Immune system are his primary areas of study. His study in FOXP3 is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Regulatory T cell, Transcriptome, Antigen, Interleukin 33 and Adipose tissue. His research on Immunology frequently connects to adjacent areas such as Nod.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Stromal cell, Tissue homeostasis, Receptor, Skeletal muscle and T-cell receptor in addition to Cell biology. His studies deal with areas such as Chromatin, T cell, Regulation of gene expression and Effector as well as Transcription factor. His work carried out in the field of Immune system brings together such families of science as Progenitor cell, Gut flora and Homeostasis.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The Human Cell Atlas (853 citations)
  • Individual intestinal symbionts induce a distinct population of RORγ+ regulatory T cells (411 citations)
  • Individual intestinal symbionts induce a distinct population of RORγ+ regulatory T cells (411 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Immune system

Christophe Benoist mostly deals with FOXP3, Cell biology, Immune system, Transcriptome and Immunology. His FOXP3 research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Regulatory T cell, Inflammation, Interleukin 33, Adipose tissue and Effector. His work in the fields of Progenitor cell overlaps with other areas such as KAT5.

His Immune system study is concerned with the larger field of Genetics. His Transcriptome research incorporates elements of Transcription factor, Cellular differentiation and Antigen. His research in Autoimmunity and Myeloid are components of Immunology.
