What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Enzyme

His primary areas of study are Virology, Neuroscience, Cell biology, Glutamate receptor and Molecular biology. His Virology research includes elements of Gene and Immunology. His Neuroscience research incorporates themes from Kainate receptor, Microglia and Neurotransmission.

He combines subjects such as Innate immune system, Glial fibrillary acidic protein and Oligodendrocyte with his study of Cell biology. His research investigates the connection between Glutamate receptor and topics such as NMDA receptor that intersect with issues in Stimulation. His study in Molecular biology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Genetically modified mouse, Transgene, Green fluorescent protein, Cell type and In vivo.

His most cited work include:

  • Resting Microglial Cells Are Highly Dynamic Surveillants of Brain Parenchyma in Vivo (3556 citations)
  • Protective effects of a live attenuated SIV vaccine with a deletion in the nef gene. (959 citations)
  • Absence of intact nef sequences in a long-term survivor with nonprogressive HIV-1 infection (925 citations)

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

Frank Kirchhoff mostly deals with Virology, Cell biology, Virus, Neuroscience and Viral replication. The Virology study combines topics in areas such as T cell and Gene, Major histocompatibility complex. Frank Kirchhoff works mostly in the field of Cell biology, limiting it down to topics relating to Tetherin and, in certain cases, Virus Release and Human Immunodeficiency Virus Proteins.

The various areas that Frank Kirchhoff examines in his Virus study include Molecular biology and Antibody. His Neuroscience study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Glutamate receptor and Microglia. His work carried out in the field of Simian immunodeficiency virus brings together such families of science as CD3, Mutant and Immunodeficiency.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Virology (41.44%)
  • Cell biology (24.95%)
  • Virus (16.29%)

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

  • Cell biology (24.95%)
  • Virology (41.44%)
  • Immune system (8.87%)

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

Frank Kirchhoff mainly investigates Cell biology, Virology, Immune system, Innate immune system and Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2. His Cell biology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Autophagy, Interferon, Downregulation and upregulation, Transcription and IFI16. The Virus and Simian immunodeficiency virus research Frank Kirchhoff does as part of his general Virology study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as CpG site, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science.

His research investigates the connection between Simian immunodeficiency virus and topics such as CD3 that intersect with problems in Infectivity. His Immune system research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Cytotoxic T cell, NF-κB and Cytosol. Frank Kirchhoff has included themes like Inflammasome, Cytokine, NSP1 and Eukaryotic Small Ribosomal Subunit, Ribosome in his Innate immune system study.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Structural basis for translational shutdown and immune evasion by the Nsp1 protein of SARS-CoV-2. (175 citations)
  • Detection of SARS-CoV-2 in human breastmilk. (160 citations)
  • Guanylate-Binding Proteins 2 and 5 Exert Broad Antiviral Activity by Inhibiting Furin-Mediated Processing of Viral Envelope Proteins. (46 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Enzyme

Cell biology, Virology, Interferon, Immune system and Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 are his primary areas of study. His Cell biology research incorporates elements of Olfactory bulb, Central nervous system, Messenger RNA, Genetically modified mouse and Transcription. His Central nervous system research focuses on Cerebellum and how it connects with Oligodendrocyte and Embryonic stem cell.

His Virology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Peptide and Pneumonia. His Interferon research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of TLR7, Autoantibody, Systemic lupus erythematosus, Lupus erythematosus and Signal transduction. He has researched Immune system in several fields, including Cytotoxic T cell, Human leukocyte antigen and Downregulation and upregulation.
