What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Antibody
  • Gene
  • Immune system

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Immunology, Molecular biology, Antibody, Antigen and Immunotoxin. Her Immunology research incorporates themes from Internal medicine, Transplantation and Stem cell. Her Molecular biology study combines topics in areas such as T cell, Lymphokine, Immunoglobulin M, Surface Immunoglobulin and Cytotoxic T cell.

As a part of the same scientific family, Ellen S. Vitetta mostly works in the field of Antibody, focusing on Spleen and, on occasion, Cell. Her Antigen study deals with B cell intersecting with B-1 cell. Her work carried out in the field of Immunotoxin brings together such families of science as Lymphoma, Pathology, Cancer research and Ricin.

Her most cited work include:

  • Regulation of antibody isotype secretion by subsets of antigen-specific helper T cells (778 citations)
  • Redesigning nature's poisons to create anti-tumor reagents. (496 citations)
  • HER-2 gene amplification can be acquired as breast cancer progresses. (470 citations)

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

Ellen S. Vitetta mainly investigates Molecular biology, Immunology, Antibody, Antigen and Immunotoxin. She combines subjects such as B-1 cell, T cell, B cell, Immunoglobulin D and Cytotoxic T cell with her study of Molecular biology. Her studies examine the connections between Immunology and genetics, as well as such issues in Transplantation, with regards to Stem cell.

Her work deals with themes such as Cell culture and Virology, which intersect with Antibody. Ellen S. Vitetta combines subjects such as Immunoprecipitation, Spleen, Receptor and CD40 with her study of Antigen. Her Immunotoxin research focuses on Ricin and how it relates to Recombinant DNA.
