Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Bacteria
  • Gene

His main research concerns Microbiology, Virology, Genetics, Endocarditis and Q fever. Didier Raoult is interested in Antibiotics, which is a branch of Microbiology. His research is interdisciplinary, bridging the disciplines of Polymerase chain reaction and Virology.

His Endocarditis research incorporates themes from Infective endocarditis, Bartonella and Pathology. His study in Q fever is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Coxiella burnetii, Serology and Outbreak. His work deals with themes such as Sequence analysis and Phylogenetic tree, which intersect with 16S ribosomal RNA.

His most cited work include:

  • Hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin as a treatment of COVID-19: results of an open-label non-randomized clinical trial. (2594 citations)
  • Gut microbiome influences efficacy of PD-1–based immunotherapy against epithelial tumors (1593 citations)
  • Ongoing Revolution in Bacteriology: Routine Identification of Bacteria by Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry (1393 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Microbiology, Virology, Genetics, Genome and Culturomics. His Microbiology course of study focuses on 16S ribosomal RNA and Phylogenetic tree. Many of his studies on Virology apply to Serology as well.

His Genome study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Plasmid and Chromosome. His Culturomics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Human gut, Genus and Human microbiome. His Coxiella burnetii research includes elements of Endocarditis and Immunology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Microbiology (42.09%)
  • Virology (27.24%)
  • Genetics (18.24%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Microbiology (42.09%)
  • Culturomics (21.69%)
  • Bacteria (14.33%)

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

Didier Raoult focuses on Microbiology, Culturomics, Bacteria, Genome and Gene. His Microbiology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Taxonomy, Gut flora, 16S ribosomal RNA and Halophile. His 16S ribosomal RNA study frequently links to adjacent areas such as Phylogenetic tree.

His research in Culturomics intersects with topics in Stool sample, Human gut, Genus and Human microbiome. Genome connects with themes related to Virology in his study. His research in Gene is mostly focused on RNA.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin as a treatment of COVID-19: results of an open-label non-randomized clinical trial. (2594 citations)
  • Gut microbiome influences efficacy of PD-1–based immunotherapy against epithelial tumors (1593 citations)
  • New insights on the antiviral effects of chloroquine against coronavirus: what to expect for COVID-19? (491 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Bacteria
  • Gene

Didier Raoult mainly investigates Microbiology, Virology, Internal medicine, Culturomics and Genome. In his study, Microbiome is inextricably linked to Gut flora, which falls within the broad field of Microbiology. His study explores the link between Virology and topics such as Coronavirus disease 2019 that cross with problems in 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Carriage, Antibiotics, Gastroenterology and Viral load in addition to Internal medicine. As a part of the same scientific study, he usually deals with the Culturomics, concentrating on Metagenomics and frequently concerns with Computational biology. His Genome study necessitates a more in-depth grasp of Gene.
