2019 - Fellow of the Royal Society, United Kingdom
Fellow of The Academy of Medical Sciences, United Kingdom
Gurdyal S. Besra spends much of his time researching Biochemistry, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Microbiology, Natural killer T cell and Antigen. His Biochemistry study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Mycobacterium and Mycobacterium smegmatis. His research investigates the link between Mycobacterium tuberculosis and topics such as Isoniazid that cross with problems in Drug resistance.
In Microbiology, he works on issues like Lipoarabinomannan, which are connected to Mannosyltransferase and Mannose. His research integrates issues of Cell activation and Cell biology in his study of Natural killer T cell. His Antigen study also includes
Biochemistry, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Microbiology, CD1D and Natural killer T cell are his primary areas of study. His Biochemistry study incorporates themes from Stereochemistry and Mycobacterium. Gurdyal S. Besra studied Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Mutant that intersect with Corynebacterium glutamicum.
In his study, Mannose and Mannosyltransferase is strongly linked to Lipomannan, which falls under the umbrella field of Microbiology. Gurdyal S. Besra combines subjects such as Cell activation and Cell with his study of CD1D. While the research belongs to areas of Natural killer T cell, Gurdyal S. Besra spends his time largely on the problem of Cell biology, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Antigen presentation.
His primary scientific interests are in Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Biochemistry, CD1D, Tuberculosis and Cell biology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Peptidoglycan, Cell wall, Microbiology and Drug discovery. Much of his study explores Biochemistry relationship to In vivo.
He studied CD1D and Antigen presentation that intersect with MHC class I. His Cell biology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Inflammation, Cell, Cell growth and Antigen-presenting cell. His Antigen research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Glycolipid and T-cell receptor.
His main research concerns Cell biology, Immunology, CD1D, Biochemistry and Mycobacterium tuberculosis. His Cell biology research includes themes of Inflammation and Cell, Cell type. The study of Natural killer T cell and Immune system are components of his CD1D research.
His work in Biochemistry is not limited to one particular discipline; it also encompasses Bacteria. The Mycobacterium tuberculosis study combines topics in areas such as Computational biology and Microbiology. His Microbiology research integrates issues from Cell envelope, Cell wall, Virulence and Tuberculosis.
