2011 - Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh
James W. Ironside spends much of his time researching Pathology, Virology, Creutzfeldt-Jakob Syndrome, Disease and Degenerative disease. In his research on the topic of Pathology, Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome is strongly related with Immunology. His Virology research integrates issues from Scrapie, Protein Misfolding Cyclic Amplification, Prion protein and Bovine spongiform encephalopathy.
His study looks at the intersection of Bovine spongiform encephalopathy and topics like Transmissible spongiform encephalopathy with Kuru. James W. Ironside combines subjects such as Epidemiology, PrPSc Proteins, PRNP, Neuropathology and Anatomical pathology with his study of Creutzfeldt-Jakob Syndrome. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Disease, Asymptomatic carrier and Asymptomatic is strongly linked to Blood transfusion.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Pathology, Virology, Disease, Creutzfeldt-Jakob Syndrome and Neuropathology. His study connects Cerebral cortex and Pathology. His Virology research incorporates elements of Scrapie, Variant Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease, Bovine spongiform encephalopathy, PRNP and Prion protein.
His research is interdisciplinary, bridging the disciplines of Kuru and Bovine spongiform encephalopathy. His research in Disease focuses on subjects like Pediatrics, which are connected to Surgery. Creutzfeldt-Jakob Syndrome is closely attributed to PrPSc Proteins in his research.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Pathology, Virology, Disease, Neuropathology and Transmission. His Pathology research focuses on Infectivity and how it relates to Asymptomatic. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Protein Misfolding Cyclic Amplification, In vitro, Bovine spongiform encephalopathy and Genotype, PRNP.
The Bovine spongiform encephalopathy study combines topics in areas such as Scrapie, Chronic wasting disease and Epizootic. His Disease research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Phenotype, Pathological and Immunology. His research integrates issues of Variably protease-sensitive prionopathy and Fatal familial insomnia in his study of Neuropathology.
James W. Ironside mainly investigates Disease, Pathology, Virology, Transmission and Immunology. His study in Disease is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Autopsy, Human brain and Brain tissue. The concepts of his Virology study are interwoven with issues in Protein Misfolding Cyclic Amplification, Bovine spongiform encephalopathy, Genotype, PRNP and Creutzfeldt-Jakob Syndrome.
His Bovine spongiform encephalopathy research incorporates themes from Chronic wasting disease and Blood transfusion. His Transmission study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as In vitro, Asymptomatic, Blood plasma, Infectivity and Residual risk. His study in the fields of Interspecies transmission under the domain of Immunology overlaps with other disciplines such as Biological property.
