Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Immune system
  • Gene
  • T cell

Immunology, Cytotoxic T cell, T cell, Antigen and CD8 are his primary areas of study. Immunology is closely attributed to Virology in his research. His Cytotoxic T cell study frequently draws connections between related disciplines such as Cell biology.

His T cell research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Receptor, Blockade, PD-L1 and Cancer research. His work in Antigen addresses issues such as Viral load, which are connected to fields such as Major histocompatibility complex. His CD8 research incorporates themes from Enhancer, T lymphocyte, Cellular differentiation and T-cell receptor.

His most cited work include:

  • Restoring function in exhausted CD8 T cells during chronic viral infection (2941 citations)
  • PD-1 expression on HIV-specific T cells is associated with T-cell exhaustion and disease progression (2076 citations)
  • T cell exhaustion (2050 citations)

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

E. John Wherry focuses on Immunology, Cytotoxic T cell, T cell, CD8 and Immune system. Much of his study explores Immunology relationship to Virology. His work deals with themes such as Cell biology, Effector and Cellular differentiation, which intersect with Cytotoxic T cell.

His T cell study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Receptor, Cancer research and Immunotherapy. The concepts of his CD8 study are interwoven with issues in T lymphocyte, Adoptive cell transfer, Lymphocyte, T-cell receptor and Epigenetics. His work on Immunity and Acquired immune system as part of general Immune system study is frequently linked to Population, bridging the gap between disciplines.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (62.09%)
  • Cytotoxic T cell (53.73%)
  • T cell (36.72%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Immune system (28.36%)
  • Cytotoxic T cell (53.73%)
  • Immunology (62.09%)

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

Immune system, Cytotoxic T cell, Immunology, T cell and Cell biology are his primary areas of study. E. John Wherry combines subjects such as Cancer, Cancer research, Virus and Vaccination with his study of Immune system. His work carried out in the field of Cytotoxic T cell brings together such families of science as CD8, Cancer immunotherapy, Priming, Epigenetics and Effector.

The CD8 study combines topics in areas such as Lymphocyte and Immunotherapy. E. John Wherry integrates many fields, such as Immunology and Population, in his works. His Cell biology study also includes fields such as

  • Transcription factor which connect with Chromatin,
  • Transcription that intertwine with fields like Lymphocytic choriomeningitis.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Deep immune profiling of COVID-19 patients reveals distinct immunotypes with therapeutic implications (409 citations)
  • CD8 T Cell Exhaustion During Chronic Viral Infection and Cancer (326 citations)
  • TOX transcriptionally and epigenetically programs CD8 + T cell exhaustion (293 citations)

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

  • Immune system
  • Gene
  • T cell

His primary areas of study are Immune system, Coronavirus disease 2019, Immunology, Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 and Effector. His Immune system study combines topics in areas such as Virus, Cancer research, Adjuvant and B cell. He specializes in Immunology, namely T cell.

In his work, Coronavirus and Pandemic is strongly intertwined with Virology, which is a subfield of Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2. His Effector research includes themes of Cytotoxic T cell, CD8 and Immunotherapy. His research in CD8 intersects with topics in Immune checkpoint and Epigenetics.
