Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Inflammation
  • Immune system

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Immunology, Inflammation, Interleukin 13, Fibrosis and Cell biology. His Immunology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Caspase, Pulmonary fibrosis and Chitinase. His Inflammation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Interleukin 18, Apoptosis, Signal transduction, Matrix metalloproteinase and Macrophage.

His research in Interleukin 13 tackles topics such as Molecular biology which are related to areas like Plasmin. His Fibrosis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Transforming growth factor and Cancer research. His Cancer research research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Receptor and Transforming growth factor beta.

His most cited work include:

  • Interleukin-13 Induces Tissue Fibrosis by Selectively Stimulating and Activating Transforming Growth Factor β1 (743 citations)
  • Role of chitin and chitinase/chitinase-like proteins in inflammation, tissue remodeling, and injury. (515 citations)
  • Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) induces remodeling and enhances TH2-mediated sensitization and inflammation in the lung. (489 citations)

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

Chun Geun Lee mainly focuses on Immunology, Inflammation, Cancer research, CHI3L1 and Interleukin 13. His Immunology study combines topics in areas such as Fibrosis, Vascular endothelial growth factor and Lung. In Inflammation, Chun Geun Lee works on issues like Innate immune system, which are connected to Chitin and Polysaccharide.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Transforming growth factor, Pulmonary fibrosis, Lung injury and Metastasis. His study on CHI3L1 also encompasses disciplines like

  • Immune system together with Microbiology, Allergic sensitization and M2 Macrophage,
  • Protein kinase B which is related to area like MAPK/ERK pathway. In his research on the topic of Interleukin 13, Apoptosis and Transgene is strongly related with Cell biology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (47.69%)
  • Inflammation (37.50%)
  • Cancer research (27.78%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • CHI3L1 (21.76%)
  • Immune system (11.11%)
  • Cancer research (27.78%)

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

CHI3L1, Immune system, Cancer research, Pulmonary fibrosis and Immunology are his primary areas of study. His studies in CHI3L1 integrate themes in fields like T cell, Protein kinase B, Antibody and Pharmacology. His Immune system research incorporates themes from Proinflammatory cytokine, Cytokine and MAPK/ERK pathway.

His work deals with themes such as Cancer, Trametinib, Cytotoxicity, Infectivity and Cytotoxic T cell, which intersect with Cancer research. Chun Geun Lee has researched Pulmonary fibrosis in several fields, including Transforming growth factor, Signal transduction, Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and Interstitial lung disease. His work in Inflammation and Pathogenesis are all subfields of Immunology research.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Chitinase 3-like 1 drives allergic skin inflammation via Th2 immunity and M2 macrophage activation. (15 citations)
  • Chitinase 3-like 1 drives allergic skin inflammation via Th2 immunity and M2 macrophage activation. (15 citations)
  • COPD as a Disease of Immunosenescence. (14 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Immune system
  • Enzyme

His main research concerns Immune system, Immunology, Inflammation, CHI3L1 and M2 Macrophage. His research integrates issues of Cancer research, Infectivity, Trametinib, Cytotoxicity and Proinflammatory cytokine in his study of Immune system. Many of his studies on Immunology involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Disease.

His Inflammation research includes themes of COPD and Pathogenesis. The CHI3L1 study combines topics in areas such as T cell, Ovalbumin, Allergic sensitization, Atopic dermatitis and Bronchoalveolar lavage. His work carried out in the field of M2 Macrophage brings together such families of science as Bronchiolitis, Respiratory system and Lung.
