Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Law
  • Disease
  • China

David L. Heymann focuses on Public health, Global health, Virology, Outbreak and Pandemic. His Public health research includes elements of Communicable disease transmission, Environmental health and MEDLINE. His study with Global health involves better knowledge in Economic growth.

In the field of Virology, his study on Transmission, Smallpox and Dengue fever overlaps with subjects such as Vaccinia Vaccine and Monkeypox virus. His Outbreak study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Preparedness and Case fatality rate. His Pandemic study incorporates themes from Ecology, Natural resource, Development economics and Enzootic.

His most cited work include:

  • Control of Communicable Diseases Manual (1091 citations)
  • COVID-19: towards controlling of a pandemic. (591 citations)
  • “Herd Immunity”: A Rough Guide (532 citations)

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

David L. Heymann mainly investigates Public health, Global health, Environmental health, Virology and Outbreak. His Public health research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Infectious disease, International Health Regulations and Smallpox. His study looks at the intersection of Global health and topics like Pandemic with Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Sanitation and Vaccination in addition to Environmental health. He interconnects Coronavirus and Coronavirus disease 2019 in the investigation of issues within Virology. His Outbreak research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Preparedness and Disease.
