Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Virus
  • Gene

His scientific interests lie mostly in Virology, Immunology, Ehrlichia chaffeensis, Human monocytotropic ehrlichiosis and Microbiology. Virology is closely attributed to Polymerase chain reaction in his study. His studies in Immunology integrate themes in fields like Rocky Mountain spotted fever, Endothelium and Leukopenia.

His Ehrlichia chaffeensis study combines topics in areas such as Molecular biology, Antibody, Cell wall and Tandem repeat. David H. Walker has included themes like Ehrlichia muris and Ehrlichiosis in his Human monocytotropic ehrlichiosis study. The Microbiology study combines topics in areas such as Ultrastructure, Cellular immunity, Antigen, Vacuole and Anaplasma.

His most cited work include:

  • Exogenous and endogenous glycolipid antigens activate NKT cells during microbial infections (1007 citations)
  • Fever with thrombocytopenia associated with a novel bunyavirus in China. (867 citations)
  • Identification of a granulocytotropic Ehrlichia species as the etiologic agent of human disease (836 citations)

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

David H. Walker mostly deals with Virology, Immunology, Spotted fever, Rickettsia and Microbiology. His study in Virology concentrates on Rickettsiosis, Ehrlichia, Ehrlichia chaffeensis, Tick and Rickettsia rickettsii. The study incorporates disciplines such as Orientia tsutsugamushi and Scrub typhus in addition to Immunology.

His Spotted fever study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Rocky Mountain spotted fever and Typhus. His Rickettsia study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Rickettsiales and Polymerase chain reaction. The concepts of his Microbiology study are interwoven with issues in Intracellular parasite, Antibody and Antigen.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Virology (44.48%)
  • Immunology (22.93%)
  • Spotted fever (20.86%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2021)?

  • Virology (44.48%)
  • Immunology (22.93%)
  • Microbiology (19.31%)

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

David H. Walker mainly investigates Virology, Immunology, Microbiology, Rickettsia and Spotted fever. David H. Walker interconnects Disease and Immunity in the investigation of issues within Virology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Orientia tsutsugamushi and Scrub typhus.

His Microbiology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Secretion, Vacuole and Polymerase chain reaction. His Spotted fever research integrates issues from Rocky Mountain spotted fever, Rickettsiosis and Typhus. His work deals with themes such as Ehrlichia canis and Ehrlichiosis, which intersect with Ehrlichia chaffeensis.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Annual Report of the Chief Medical Officer: infection and the rise of antimicrobial resistance (207 citations)
  • Pathogenesis of the Viral Hemorrhagic Fevers (185 citations)
  • Unresolved problems related to scrub typhus: a seriously neglected life-threatening disease. (159 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Virus
  • Gene

David H. Walker focuses on Virology, Immunology, Orientia tsutsugamushi, Immune system and Scrub typhus. David H. Walker combines subjects such as Disease and Microbiology with his study of Virology. Much of his study explores Immunology relationship to Leishmania.

His study in Immune system is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Rocky Mountain spotted fever, Inflammation, Rickettsia rickettsii, Vaccination and In vivo. His Scrub typhus research includes themes of Eschar, Case fatality rate and Intensive care medicine. His work carried out in the field of Spotted fever brings together such families of science as Typhus and Vasculitis.
