Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Immune system
  • Gene
  • Antibody

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Immunology, Cytotoxic T cell, Virology, Antigen and Immune system. His Immunology study often links to related topics such as Cell biology. His Cytotoxic T cell study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as T cell and CD8.

His Virology study incorporates themes from Epitope, Antibody and Lymphocytic choriomeningitis. His Antigen research incorporates elements of Naive B cell, Germinal center, B cell and T-cell receptor. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Immune system, Macrophage is strongly linked to Lymphatic system.

His most cited work include:

  • Cytotoxicity mediated by T cells and natural killer cells is greatly impaired in perforin-deficient mice (1581 citations)
  • Fas and perforin pathways as major mechanisms of T cell-mediated cytotoxicity (1408 citations)
  • Ablation of "tolerance" and induction of diabetes by virus infection in viral antigen transgenic mice. (1076 citations)

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

Immunology, Virology, Cytotoxic T cell, Antigen and T cell are his primary areas of study. Perforin and Natural killer cell is closely connected to Cell biology in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Immunology. His work carried out in the field of Virology brings together such families of science as Epitope, Antibody and Lymphocytic choriomeningitis.

Hans Hengartner interconnects Molecular biology, CD8 and Major histocompatibility complex in the investigation of issues within Cytotoxic T cell. His Antigen study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as T helper cell and Antigen presentation. He has researched Immune system in several fields, including Viral disease and Spleen.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (50.14%)
  • Virology (50.14%)
  • Cytotoxic T cell (45.75%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 1999-2013)?

  • Immunology (50.14%)
  • Virology (50.14%)
  • Lymphocytic choriomeningitis (29.59%)

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

Hans Hengartner mostly deals with Immunology, Virology, Lymphocytic choriomeningitis, T cell and Virus. He combines topics linked to Cytotoxic T cell with his work on Immunology. His Cytotoxic T cell research incorporates themes from Epitope, Major histocompatibility complex and Immunotherapy.

His Virology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Antibody and B cell. The study incorporates disciplines such as Autoimmune disease, Toll-like receptor, CD8 and Cell biology in addition to T cell. His Virus research includes elements of In vivo, Immunopathology and Microbiology.

Between 1999 and 2013, his most popular works were:

  • A Primitive T Cell-Independent Mechanism of Intestinal Mucosal IgA Responses to Commensal Bacteria (917 citations)
  • Roles of tumour localization, second signals and cross priming in cytotoxic T-cell induction (462 citations)
  • Toll-like receptor engagement converts T-cell autoreactivity into overt autoimmune disease. (347 citations)

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

  • Immune system
  • Gene
  • Antibody

Hans Hengartner spends much of his time researching Immunology, Antigen, Immune system, Virology and T cell. Immunology is often connected to Cytotoxic T cell in his work. The Cytotoxic T cell study combines topics in areas such as Major histocompatibility complex and Immunotherapy.

His Antigen study combines topics in areas such as Autoimmunity, Germinal center and Immunity. The concepts of his Virology study are interwoven with issues in Genetics, Antibody and Immunopathology. His work is dedicated to discovering how T cell, CD8 are connected with Toll-like receptor and other disciplines.
