Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

Howard L. Weiner mainly focuses on Immunology, Multiple sclerosis, Immune system, Antigen and Experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis. His Immunology study frequently links to adjacent areas such as Myelin basic protein. His studies in Multiple sclerosis integrate themes in fields like Central nervous system disease, Internal medicine, Surgery and Innate immune system.

His work in Immune system addresses subjects such as Disease, which are connected to disciplines such as Central nervous system. His Antigen research also works with subjects such as

  • Antibody which connect with Endocrinology,
  • Autoimmunity which intersects with area such as Arthritis. He interconnects Cellular differentiation and Cytokine, Interferon gamma, Interleukin 10 in the investigation of issues within Experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis.

His most cited work include:

  • Reciprocal developmental pathways for the generation of pathogenic effector TH17 and regulatory T cells. (5581 citations)
  • Regulatory T cell clones induced by oral tolerance: suppression of autoimmune encephalomyelitis (1838 citations)
  • B7-1 and B7-2 costimulatory molecules activate differentially the Th1/Th2 developmental pathways: Application to autoimmune disease therapy (1633 citations)

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

His main research concerns Immunology, Multiple sclerosis, Internal medicine, Immune system and Antigen. His Myelin basic protein research extends to Immunology, which is thematically connected. His research in Multiple sclerosis focuses on subjects like Magnetic resonance imaging, which are connected to Atrophy.

His Internal medicine study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Gastroenterology, Endocrinology, Surgery and Oncology. His Immune system study incorporates themes from Inflammation and Cell biology. His Antigen research is mostly focused on the topic Immune tolerance.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (44.39%)
  • Multiple sclerosis (37.02%)
  • Internal medicine (17.25%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Multiple sclerosis (37.02%)
  • Immunology (44.39%)
  • Internal medicine (17.25%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Multiple sclerosis, Immunology, Internal medicine, Immune system and Disease. In general Multiple sclerosis study, his work on Expanded Disability Status Scale often relates to the realm of In patient, thereby connecting several areas of interest. His work in Immunology is not limited to one particular discipline; it also encompasses Microbiome.

His research investigates the connection between Internal medicine and topics such as Fingolimod that intersect with problems in Natalizumab. His research integrates issues of Myeloid and Cytokine in his study of Immune system. His Microglia research integrates issues from Neurodegeneration, Neuroinflammation and Neuroscience, Central nervous system.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Identification of a unique TGF-β–dependent molecular and functional signature in microglia (1344 citations)
  • The TREM2-APOE Pathway Drives the Transcriptional Phenotype of Dysfunctional Microglia in Neurodegenerative Diseases (777 citations)
  • Alterations of the human gut microbiome in multiple sclerosis (498 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

Multiple sclerosis, Immunology, Internal medicine, Immune system and Microglia are his primary areas of study. The Multiple sclerosis study combines topics in areas such as Disease, Cohort, Atrophy, Pathology and Magnetic resonance imaging. His study brings together the fields of Microbiome and Immunology.

He has included themes like Gastroenterology, Endocrinology and Oncology in his Internal medicine study. His Immune system study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Probiotic, Transcription factor, Downregulation and upregulation, Receptor and Effector. His work deals with themes such as Central nervous system, Neuroscience, Neurodegeneration and Homeostasis, which intersect with Microglia.
