Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

Immunology, Multiple sclerosis, Pathology, Myelin and Microglia are his primary areas of study. His study in Inflammation, Encephalomyelitis, Experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis, Myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein and Antigen falls under the purview of Immunology. Hans Lassmann has researched Multiple sclerosis in several fields, including White matter, Central nervous system, Neuroscience, Remyelination and Disease.

His Pathology study incorporates themes from Pathology of multiple sclerosis and Central nervous system disease. His Myelin research incorporates elements of Immunocytochemistry, Molecular biology and Autoimmunity. His Microglia study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Neurodegeneration, Bone marrow, Alzheimer's disease, Cell type and Major histocompatibility complex.

His most cited work include:

  • Heterogeneity of multiple sclerosis lesions: implications for the pathogenesis of demyelination. (2596 citations)
  • Cortical demyelination and diffuse white matter injury in multiple sclerosis (1327 citations)
  • A role for humoral mechanisms in the pathogenesis of Devic’s neuromyelitis optica (947 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Immunology, Multiple sclerosis, Pathology, Myelin and Central nervous system. His research related to Experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis, Encephalomyelitis, Inflammation, Myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein and Microglia might be considered part of Immunology. His work carried out in the field of Encephalomyelitis brings together such families of science as Antibody and Antigen.

The concepts of his Inflammation study are interwoven with issues in Tumor necrosis factor alpha and Immune system. His studies in Multiple sclerosis integrate themes in fields like White matter, Pathogenesis, Remyelination, Disease and Neuroscience. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Pathology, Aquaporin 4 is strongly linked to Neuromyelitis optica.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (49.33%)
  • Multiple sclerosis (44.79%)
  • Pathology (43.68%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Multiple sclerosis (44.79%)
  • Pathology (43.68%)
  • Immunology (49.33%)

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

Hans Lassmann mostly deals with Multiple sclerosis, Pathology, Immunology, Microglia and Central nervous system. His Multiple sclerosis research includes elements of White matter, Inflammation, Neurodegeneration, Myelin and Neuroscience. His research integrates issues of Magnetic resonance imaging and Neuromyelitis optica in his study of Pathology.

His Microglia research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Acquired immune system, Remyelination, Human brain, Oligodendrocyte and Antigen presentation. His work in Experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis covers topics such as T cell which are related to areas like Antigen and Cell biology. His work focuses on many connections between Myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein and other disciplines, such as Encephalomyelitis, that overlap with his field of interest in Epitope.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The TREM2-APOE Pathway Drives the Transcriptional Phenotype of Dysfunctional Microglia in Neurodegenerative Diseases (777 citations)
  • Pathological mechanisms in progressive multiple sclerosis (579 citations)
  • Clinical and pathological insights into the dynamic nature of the white matter multiple sclerosis plaque. (237 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Immune system

His primary areas of study are Multiple sclerosis, Immunology, Microglia, Pathology and Myelin. His Multiple sclerosis research is multidisciplinary, relying on both White matter, Neurodegeneration and Neuroscience, Central nervous system. The Immunology study which covers Remyelination that intersects with Oligodendrocyte and Cell biology.

His Microglia research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Neuroprotection, Transforming growth factor beta, Antigen presentation and In vivo. He has included themes like Young adult and Cerebellar cortex in his Pathology study. As a part of the same scientific family, Hans Lassmann mostly works in the field of Myelin, focusing on Magnetic resonance imaging and, on occasion, Luxol fast blue stain and Basal ganglia.
