Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Bacteria
  • Internal medicine
  • Antibiotics

His primary areas of study are Microbiology, Virulence, Caenorhabditis elegans, Gene and Staphylococcus aureus. Costi D. Sifri interconnects Genetics, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Enterobacteriaceae, Cell biology and Klebsiella pneumoniae in the investigation of issues within Microbiology. His work deals with themes such as Enterococcus faecalis, Outbreak and Bacteria, which intersect with Virulence.

His Caenorhabditis elegans research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Mutation, Phagocytosis, GTPase and Mutant. His Mutant research incorporates themes from Phenotype and Immune system. His research integrates issues of Molecular biology, Pathogen and Virology in his study of Gene.

His most cited work include:

  • Long-lived C. elegans daf-2 Mutants are resistant to bacterial pathogens (458 citations)
  • A simple model host for identifying Gram-positive virulence factors (457 citations)
  • Transfection of Plasmodium falciparum within human red blood cells (329 citations)

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

Costi D. Sifri spends much of his time researching Microbiology, Internal medicine, Virulence, Surgery and Transplantation. Costi D. Sifri combines subjects such as Bacteria, Biofilm, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Staphylococcus aureus and Mutant with his study of Microbiology. His study in Internal medicine is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Gastroenterology, Clostridium difficile, Daptomycin and Bacteremia.

His Virulence research incorporates elements of Phenotype, Host and Caenorhabditis elegans. His Caenorhabditis elegans research is included under the broader classification of Gene. His research in Transplantation intersects with topics in Immunology and Cryptococcosis.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Microbiology (37.67%)
  • Internal medicine (26.03%)
  • Virulence (25.34%)

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

  • Internal medicine (26.03%)
  • Clostridium difficile (10.96%)
  • Intensive care medicine (10.96%)

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

Costi D. Sifri mostly deals with Internal medicine, Clostridium difficile, Intensive care medicine, Emergency medicine and Medical emergency. The various areas that he examines in his Internal medicine study include Gastroenterology, Enterococcus faecium and Daptomycin. His Daptomycin study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Microbiology.

He works mostly in the field of Microbiology, limiting it down to concerns involving Phylogenetics and, occasionally, Transposable element and Plasmid. His Intensive care medicine research includes themes of Acute care, Mupirocin resistance and Staphylococcus aureus. In his study, Preparedness planning is inextricably linked to Outbreak, which falls within the broad field of Medical emergency.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Nested Russian Doll-Like Genetic Mobility Drives Rapid Dissemination of the Carbapenem Resistance Gene blaKPC (155 citations)
  • Influence of Minimum Inhibitory Concentration in Clinical Outcomes of Enterococcus faecium Bacteremia Treated With Daptomycin: Is it Time to Change the Breakpoint? (65 citations)
  • Intensive Care Unit Wastewater Interventions to Prevent Transmission of Multispecies Klebsiella pneumoniae Carbapenemase-Producing Organisms. (41 citations)

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

  • Bacteria
  • Internal medicine
  • Gene

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Internal medicine, Emergency medicine, Psychological intervention, Carbapenem-resistant enterobacteriaceae and Confidence interval. His Internal medicine research integrates issues from Enterococcus faecium, Daptomycin and Common variable immunodeficiency. His Emergency medicine study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Odds ratio, Rate ratio, Intensive care and Intensive care unit.

His Carbapenem-resistant enterobacteriaceae study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Young adult, Multivariate analysis, Case-control study and Hygiene. To a larger extent, Costi D. Sifri studies Microbiology with the aim of understanding Blood culture. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Microbiology, Plasmid is strongly linked to Phylogenetics.
