Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Ecology
  • Genetics

His main research concerns Ixodes ricinus, Cell biology, Tick, Borrelia burgdorferi and Biochemistry. His Ixodes ricinus study is related to the wider topic of Veterinary medicine. His study in Cell biology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Endocytic cycle, Cell membrane and Protein targeting.

His studies deal with areas such as Zoology, Borrelia and Ricinus as well as Tick. The various areas that Hein Sprong examines in his Borrelia burgdorferi study include Ixodidae and Virology. His Borrelia miyamotoi research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of relapsing fever and Microbiology.

His most cited work include:

  • MDR1 P-Glycoprotein Is a Lipid Translocase of Broad Specificity, While MDR3 P-Glycoprotein Specifically Translocates Phosphatidylcholine (736 citations)
  • Food-borne diseases - the challenges of 20 years ago still persist while new ones continue to emerge. (734 citations)
  • Driving forces for changes in geographical distribution of Ixodes ricinus ticks in Europe (641 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Ixodes ricinus, Tick, Virology, Borrelia burgdorferi and Zoology. Hein Sprong interconnects Ixodes, Borrelia afzelii, Tick-borne disease, Anaplasma phagocytophilum and Ricinus in the investigation of issues within Ixodes ricinus. His Tick research incorporates elements of Nymph, Rickettsia helvetica and Babesia.

His Virology research incorporates themes from Serology, Immunology and Polymerase chain reaction. His Borrelia burgdorferi research includes elements of Lyme disease and Microbiology. He has researched Zoology in several fields, including Enzootic, Rodent and Genotype.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ixodes ricinus (37.93%)
  • Tick (35.34%)
  • Virology (28.02%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Tick (35.34%)
  • Ixodes ricinus (37.93%)
  • Zoology (21.55%)

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

Hein Sprong focuses on Tick, Ixodes ricinus, Zoology, Borrelia burgdorferi and Anaplasma phagocytophilum. Hein Sprong studies Tick, focusing on Ixodes in particular. The concepts of his Ixodes ricinus study are interwoven with issues in Human granulocytic anaplasmosis, Tick-borne disease, Borrelia miyamotoi, Ricinus and Capreolus.

His Zoology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Borrelia afzelii, Enzootic, Eurasian red squirrel and Erinaceus. His Borrelia burgdorferi study incorporates themes from Veterinary medicine and Sciurus. His studies in Borrelia integrate themes in fields like Transmission and Vector.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Global phylogeography and genetic diversity of the zoonotic tapeworm Echinococcus granulosus sensu stricto genotype G1 (37 citations)
  • Control of Lyme borreliosis and other Ixodes ricinus-borne diseases (37 citations)
  • Host Phylogeny, Geographic Overlap, and Roost Sharing Shape Parasite Communities in European Bats (32 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Ecology
  • Genetics

Hein Sprong spends much of his time researching Ixodes ricinus, Tick, Zoology, Anaplasma phagocytophilum and Arthropod Vector. His Ixodes ricinus study combines topics in areas such as Ixodes, Tick-borne encephalitis and Disease burden. To a larger extent, Hein Sprong studies Virology with the aim of understanding Tick.

His Zoology research integrates issues from Borrelia burgdorferi, Borrelia miyamotoi and Borrelia garinii. His work carried out in the field of Anaplasma phagocytophilum brings together such families of science as Ixodes persulcatus, Babesia and Ricinus. His work is dedicated to discovering how Babesia, Transmission are connected with Disease and other disciplines.
