Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Immune system

Donata Vercelli focuses on Immunology, Immunoglobulin E, Molecular biology, CD23 and Interleukin 4. In general Immunology study, her work on Asthma, Immunoglobulin class switching, Allergy and Allergic inflammation often relates to the realm of Livestock, thereby connecting several areas of interest. Her Immunoglobulin E research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Isotype and Germline.

Her work carried out in the field of Molecular biology brings together such families of science as Cell surface receptor and Binding site. Her research in CD23 intersects with topics in Interleukin, T cell and Monocyte. Her studies deal with areas such as Lymphokine and B cell as well as Interleukin 4.

Her most cited work include:

  • Discovering susceptibility genes for asthma and allergy (501 citations)
  • Farm living: effects on childhood asthma and allergy (459 citations)
  • Innate Immunity and Asthma Risk in Amish and Hutterite Farm Children (453 citations)

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

Donata Vercelli mainly investigates Immunology, Immunoglobulin E, Asthma, Genetics and Molecular biology. She usually deals with Immunology and limits it to topics linked to Disease and Epigenomics and Genome. She has included themes like B cell, Immunoglobulin class switching and Interleukin 4 in her Immunoglobulin E study.

Her Interleukin 4 research includes elements of Interleukin, Lymphokine and CD40. Her Asthma research incorporates themes from DNA methylation, Environmental exposure, Environmental health, Allergic sensitization and Epigenetics. Donata Vercelli combines subjects such as STAT6, Transcription factor, Transfection, Interleukin 13 and Binding site with her study of Molecular biology.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (53.29%)
  • Immunoglobulin E (30.54%)
  • Asthma (23.95%)

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

  • Immunology (53.29%)
  • Asthma (23.95%)
  • Epigenetics (10.78%)

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

Her main research concerns Immunology, Asthma, Epigenetics, Allergy and Disease. Her Immunology study typically links adjacent topics like Microbiome. Her Asthma research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Pregnancy and Environmental exposure, Environmental health.

Her Epigenetics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Childhood asthma, Gene expression, DNA methylation and Bioinformatics. Her Allergy study combines topics in areas such as Pediatrics and Lipocalin. Her Gene study incorporates themes from Molecular biology and Biobank.

Between 2013 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Innate Immunity and Asthma Risk in Amish and Hutterite Farm Children (453 citations)
  • Type 2 inflammation modulates ACE2 and TMPRSS2 in airway epithelial cells. (79 citations)
  • Epigenome-wide analysis links SMAD3 methylation at birth to asthma in children of asthmatic mothers. (49 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Immune system

Asthma, Immunology, Allergy, Epigenetics and Disease are her primary areas of study. The concepts of her Asthma study are interwoven with issues in Immune system, Pediatrics and Environmental exposure. The Environmental exposure study combines topics in areas such as Immunoglobulin E, Regulation of gene expression and Genetic genealogy.

Her work carried out in the field of Immunology brings together such families of science as Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Haplotype. She interconnects Natural history, Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, DNA methylation and Environmental health in the investigation of issues within Epigenetics. Childhood asthma and Genetics is closely connected to Bioinformatics in her research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of DNA methylation.
