1993 - Member of Academia Europaea


What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Immune system

His main research concerns Immunology, Pathology, Heat shock protein, Immune system and Antibody. His study in Antigen, Inflammation, Pathogenesis, Autoimmune disease and Immunity is done as part of Immunology. The Pathology study combines topics in areas such as Immunofluorescence, Arteriosclerosis, Endothelium and Cell.

He has included themes like Signal transduction and Cell biology in his Heat shock protein study. His Immune system research also works with subjects such as

  • Endocrinology which intersects with area such as Lesion,
  • Internal medicine that intertwine with fields like Hyperimmunization. His study in Antibody is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Escherichia coli, Peptide sequence, Matrix, Myocardial infarction and Programmed cell death.

His most cited work include:

  • Chronic Infections and the Risk of Carotid Atherosclerosis Prospective Results From a Large Population Study (454 citations)
  • Serum Soluble Heat Shock Protein 60 Is Elevated in Subjects With Atherosclerosis in a General Population (389 citations)
  • Autoimmune and Inflammatory Mechanisms in Atherosclerosis (368 citations)

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

Georg Wick spends much of his time researching Immunology, Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Pathology and Antigen. His Immunology study incorporates themes from Heat shock protein and Autoimmune thyroiditis. His Heat shock protein research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Inflammation, Endothelial stem cell and Cell adhesion molecule, Cell biology.

The concepts of his Internal medicine study are interwoven with issues in T cell and In vivo. His Pathology research focuses on subjects like Arteriosclerosis, which are linked to Vascular disease. As a part of the same scientific study, he usually deals with the Antigen, concentrating on Molecular biology and frequently concerns with Monoclonal antibody, Immunofluorescence, Antiserum and Biochemistry.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (50.87%)
  • Internal medicine (32.17%)
  • Endocrinology (30.67%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2007-2020)?

  • Immunology (50.87%)
  • Heat shock protein (15.96%)
  • Inflammation (6.23%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Immunology, Heat shock protein, Inflammation, Pathology and Immune system. His Immunology research incorporates elements of Fibrosis, HSP60 and Disease. His studies deal with areas such as Preclinical imaging, Cell, Cell adhesion molecule, Cell biology and Antibody as well as Heat shock protein.

His Inflammation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Epitope and Endocrinology. His work on Immunohistochemistry as part of his general Pathology study is frequently connected to Capsular contracture, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. His Immune system research includes themes of Peripheral blood mononuclear cell, Lymphatic system and Cytokine.

Between 2007 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • The Immunology of Fibrosis (187 citations)
  • Cadmium Is a Novel and Independent Risk Factor for Early Atherosclerosis Mechanisms and In Vivo Relevance (177 citations)
  • Heat Shock Protein 60 and Immune Inflammatory Responses in Atherosclerosis (136 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Immune system

Georg Wick mostly deals with Immunology, Heat shock protein, Pathology, Inflammation and Fibrosis. His study connects Odds ratio and Immunology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Cell cycle checkpoint, G1 phase and Reactive oxygen species.

The Pathology study combines topics in areas such as Internal medicine and Sequela. His work carried out in the field of Internal medicine brings together such families of science as Autoantibody and Contracture. His research in Inflammation intersects with topics in CD40, Interferon gamma, Human leukocyte antigen, Interleukin 4 and Epitope.
