Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Bacteria

Elaine Tuomanen mainly focuses on Microbiology, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Immunology, Virulence and Meningitis. Her Microbiology research includes elements of Bacterial adhesin, Virology, In vivo and Bacteria. Her Streptococcus pneumoniae study combines topics in areas such as Pathogenesis and Streptococcaceae.

Her Immunology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Bacteremia and Pneumonia. She interconnects Phosphorylcholine, Gene expression, Gene expression profiling and Mutant in the investigation of issues within Virulence. Her Meningitis study incorporates themes from Apoptosis, Programmed cell death and Blood–brain barrier.

Her most cited work include:

  • Cutting edge: recognition of Gram-positive bacterial cell wall components by the innate immune system occurs via Toll-like receptor 2 (1140 citations)
  • Targeted disruption of the p50 subunit of NF-κB leads to multifocal defects in immune responses (1084 citations)
  • Streptococcus pneumoniae anchor to activated human cells by the receptor for platelet-activating factor (641 citations)

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

Her main research concerns Microbiology, Immunology, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Biochemistry and Meningitis. The concepts of her Microbiology study are interwoven with issues in Bacterial adhesin, Virulence, Virology and Bacteria. Her Bacterial adhesin course of study focuses on Bordetella pertussis and Antibody.

Her work in Immunology tackles topics such as Pneumonia which are related to areas like Pneumococcal pneumonia and Otitis. Her Streptococcus pneumoniae research includes themes of Pathogen, Antibacterial agent and Streptococcaceae. Within one scientific family, she focuses on topics pertaining to Blood–brain barrier under Meningitis, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Cell biology.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Microbiology (48.95%)
  • Immunology (32.52%)
  • Streptococcus pneumoniae (27.27%)

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

  • Microbiology (48.95%)
  • Streptococcus pneumoniae (27.27%)
  • Immunology (32.52%)

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

Her primary areas of investigation include Microbiology, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Immunology, Immune system and Pneumococcal infections. Her research integrates issues of Cell, Pathogenesis, Bacterial capsule, Host and Epitope in her study of Microbiology. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Meningitis, Pathogen, Haemophilus influenzae and Antigen.

The Immunology study combines topics in areas such as Bacteremia, Pneumococcal vaccine, Disease and Pneumonia. Her work deals with themes such as Heterologous, Teichoic acid, Neutropenia and Trypsin, which intersect with Immune system. Her Pneumococcal infections research incorporates themes from Cardiac function curve, Antibiotic resistance and Virulence.

Between 2012 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • The Pneumococcus: Epidemiology, Microbiology, and Pathogenesis (225 citations)
  • Streptococcus pneumoniae Translocates into the Myocardium and Forms Unique Microlesions That Disrupt Cardiac Function (109 citations)
  • Induction of Pulmonary Inflammation by Components of the Pneumococcal Cell Surface1–2 (104 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Bacteria

Microbiology, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Immunology, Pneumococcal infections and Cell are her primary areas of study. Her work focuses on many connections between Microbiology and other disciplines, such as Neisseria meningitidis, that overlap with her field of interest in Vaccine efficacy, Virology, Haemophilus influenzae and Meningitis. Her studies in Streptococcus pneumoniae integrate themes in fields like Bacterial capsule, Immunity, Antigen and Sepsis.

Her Immunology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Bacteremia, Stringent response and Disease. Her Pneumococcal infections study combines topics in areas such as Antibiotic resistance and Pneumolysin. Her Cell research incorporates themes from Autolysin, Antimicrobial peptides, Autolysis and N-acetylmuramoyl-L-alanine amidase.
