Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Enzyme
  • Immune system
  • Cancer

His primary areas of investigation include Cell biology, Receptor, Extracellular, Purinergic receptor and Intracellular. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Proinflammatory cytokine, Secretion, Autocrine signalling and Cytosol. His Receptor study combines topics in areas such as Inflammation, Molecular biology and Signal transduction.

His Extracellular study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Cell culture, Cancer research, Adenosine triphosphate, Stimulation and Programmed cell death. His work deals with themes such as Cell type and Paracrine signalling, which intersect with Purinergic receptor. His Intracellular research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Inositol trisphosphate receptor and Inositol.

His most cited work include:

  • Molecular mechanisms of cell death: recommendations of the Nomenclature Committee on Cell Death 2018. (1421 citations)
  • The P2X7 receptor: a key player in IL-1 processing and release. (853 citations)
  • Autophagy-dependent anticancer immune responses induced by chemotherapeutic agents in mice. (846 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Cell biology, Receptor, Extracellular, Purinergic receptor and Inflammation. Francesco Di Virgilio interconnects Cell surface receptor, Programmed cell death and Secretion in the investigation of issues within Cell biology. His research investigates the connection between Receptor and topics such as Immune system that intersect with problems in Neuroscience.

His research investigates the link between Extracellular and topics such as Molecular biology that cross with problems in HEK 293 cells. His Purinergic receptor research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Proinflammatory cytokine, Stimulation, Purinergic signalling and Antagonist. His study brings together the fields of Cytokine and Inflammation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cell biology (49.08%)
  • Receptor (43.22%)
  • Extracellular (34.80%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Receptor (43.22%)
  • Cell biology (49.08%)
  • Extracellular (34.80%)

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

Francesco Di Virgilio mainly investigates Receptor, Cell biology, Extracellular, Inflammation and Immune system. His Receptor research integrates issues from Cancer research and Immunology. His study in the fields of Purinergic receptor and P2Y receptor under the domain of Cell biology overlaps with other disciplines such as Downregulation and upregulation.

He has researched Extracellular in several fields, including Cell type, In vivo and Pathology. His work in Inflammation addresses issues such as Cytokine, which are connected to fields such as Chemotaxis and Growth factor. The Immune system study combines topics in areas such as Cell, Calcium imaging and Calcium signaling.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Molecular mechanisms of cell death: recommendations of the Nomenclature Committee on Cell Death 2018. (1421 citations)
  • Extracellular ATP and P2 purinergic signalling in the tumour microenvironment (182 citations)
  • The Elusive P2X7 Macropore (95 citations)

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

  • Enzyme
  • Immune system
  • Cancer

His primary scientific interests are in Receptor, Cell biology, Extracellular, Immune system and Purinergic signalling. His Receptor research includes themes of Tumor microenvironment and Cancer research. His research in Cell biology intersects with topics in Paracrine Communication, Macrophage and CD8.

His Extracellular study incorporates themes from Sepsis, Phagocytic Cell, Microbiology, Adoptive cell transfer and Innate immune system. His work carried out in the field of Immune system brings together such families of science as Autocrine signalling, Inflammation, Calcium signaling, Calcium imaging and Tumor progression. His Purinergic signalling study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Purinergic receptor and In vivo.
