Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Immune system
  • DNA

Dan R. Littman mainly focuses on Immunology, Cell biology, Immune system, Molecular biology and Cellular differentiation. His study involves RAR-related orphan receptor gamma, Interleukin 17, Inflammation, Cytokine and T cell, a branch of Immunology. His Cell biology study combines topics in areas such as CXCL16, Chemokine receptor, CCL21, Lymphatic system and Cytotoxic T cell.

The Immune system study combines topics in areas such as Antigen and Microbiology. He has researched Molecular biology in several fields, including RNA and Transcription. His study focuses on the intersection of Cellular differentiation and fields such as FOXP3 with connections in the field of Cell type and Transforming growth factor beta.

His most cited work include:

  • The orphan nuclear receptor RORgammat directs the differentiation program of proinflammatory IL-17+ T helper cells. (3960 citations)
  • Identification of a major co-receptor for primary isolates of HIV-1 (3389 citations)
  • Induction of Intestinal Th17 Cells by Segmented Filamentous Bacteria (2958 citations)

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

Dan R. Littman mostly deals with Cell biology, Immunology, T cell, Molecular biology and Virology. His research in Cell biology intersects with topics in Cytotoxic T cell, RAR-related orphan receptor gamma, Cellular differentiation and T-cell receptor. His T cell research integrates issues from CD8 and FOXP3.

As a member of one scientific family, Dan R. Littman mostly works in the field of Molecular biology, focusing on Regulation of gene expression and, on occasion, Chromatin. His Virology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Receptor and Antibody. His Immune system research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Offspring and Lamina propria.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cell biology (42.22%)
  • Immunology (32.88%)
  • T cell (21.79%)

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

  • Cell biology (42.22%)
  • Immunology (32.88%)
  • Immune system (17.51%)

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

His main research concerns Cell biology, Immunology, Immune system, T cell and Cellular differentiation. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Cell, RAR-related orphan receptor gamma, Transcription factor, Chromatin and Innate immune system. In his study, Interleukin 10 is strongly linked to Inflammatory bowel disease, which falls under the umbrella field of Immunology.

Dan R. Littman interconnects Offspring, Lamina propria, Phenotype and Antigen in the investigation of issues within Immune system. His studies deal with areas such as Chemokine receptor, Cytotoxic T cell, Epigenetics, FOXP3 and Immunotherapy as well as T cell. His Cellular differentiation study incorporates themes from Receptor, Signal transduction and Cytokine.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The microbiota in adaptive immune homeostasis and disease (700 citations)
  • Sparse and Compositionally Robust Inference of Microbial Ecological Networks (517 citations)
  • The maternal interleukin-17a pathway in mice promotes autism-like phenotypes in offspring (439 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Immune system
  • DNA

Immunology, Immune system, Cell biology, Cellular differentiation and T cell are his primary areas of study. His study in Immunology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Intestinal mucosa and Inflammatory bowel disease. His Intestinal mucosa study combines topics in areas such as Innate lymphoid cell and Antigen.

His Immune system research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Offspring and Antibody. Signal transduction is the focus of his Cell biology research. As part of the same scientific family, he usually focuses on Cellular differentiation, concentrating on Chromatin and intersecting with Gene regulatory network and Epigenetics.
