Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Immune system

His main research concerns Immunology, T cell, Immune system, Cytokine and Cell biology. His Immunology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Cytotoxic T cell, Interleukin 12 and Cellular differentiation. His T cell study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Tumor necrosis factor alpha, Interleukin 13, CXCR3 and Antigen.

His study looks at the intersection of Immune system and topics like Effector with Toxoplasma gondii. In his study, Cytokine receptor is strongly linked to Immunopathology, which falls under the umbrella field of Cytokine. His Immunity study combines topics in areas such as Toxoplasmosis and Disease.

His most cited work include:

  • The nature of .pi.-.pi. interactions (3781 citations)
  • IL-6 as a keystone cytokine in health and disease (1032 citations)
  • Interleukin 27 negatively regulates the development of interleukin 17-producing T helper cells during chronic inflammation of the central nervous system. (834 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Immunology, Immune system, Toxoplasma gondii, Crystallography and Cell biology. His Immunology course of study focuses on Interleukin 12 and Interferon gamma. His study ties his expertise on Antigen together with the subject of Immune system.

His Toxoplasma gondii research integrates issues from Intracellular parasite, Toxoplasmosis, Virology and Microbiology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Proton NMR, Stereochemistry, Hydrogen bond and Intermolecular force. His work deals with themes such as Cytotoxic T cell and CD8, which intersect with T cell.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (28.83%)
  • Immune system (15.32%)
  • Toxoplasma gondii (14.66%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Immunology (28.83%)
  • Crystallography (14.00%)
  • Biophysics (3.29%)

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

Christopher A. Hunter spends much of his time researching Immunology, Crystallography, Biophysics, Cell biology and Hydrogen bond. The Inflammation, Cytokine, Toxoplasma gondii and Innate lymphoid cell research Christopher A. Hunter does as part of his general Immunology study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Cryptosporidium infection, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. The Cytokine study combines topics in areas such as Disease and Immune system.

The concepts of his Crystallography study are interwoven with issues in Effective molarity, Acceptor, Intramolecular force and Intermolecular force. Christopher A. Hunter combines subjects such as T cell, Transcription factor and CD8 with his study of Cell biology. His Hydrogen bond research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and Functional group.

Between 2015 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)
  • Dual CD19 and CD123 targeting prevents antigen-loss relapses after CD19-directed immunotherapies (283 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Organic chemistry

His primary areas of investigation include Immunology, Crystallography, T cell, Cell biology and Immune system. Christopher A. Hunter has included themes like Crohn's disease and Central nervous system in his Immunology study. The study incorporates disciplines such as Acceptor, Intermolecular force, Hydrogen bond and Intramolecular force, Organic chemistry in addition to Crystallography.

In his work, Immunotherapy, Chimeric antigen receptor and Leukemia is strongly intertwined with Antigen, which is a subfield of T cell. His Cell biology research incorporates themes from Toxoplasma gondii, Glycolysis, In vivo and T-cell receptor. His Immune system research includes elements of Bystander effect, Monoclonal antibody and Cytometry.
