Her main research concerns Cryptococcus neoformans, Microbiology, Gene, Fungal protein and Biochemistry. Her Cryptococcus neoformans study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Mutation and Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Her study in Microbiology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Genetically modified crops, Transgene, Phytolacca americana, Virus and Transformation.
Genetics covers she research in Gene. Jennifer K. Lodge works mostly in the field of Fungal protein, limiting it down to topics relating to Oxidative stress and, in certain cases, Oxidative phosphorylation, Reactive oxygen species, Signal transduction and Immunology. Her Gene prediction and Genomic organization study in the realm of Genome connects with subjects such as Alternative splicing.
Jennifer K. Lodge spends much of her time researching Cryptococcus neoformans, Microbiology, Gene, Virulence and Biochemistry. Her Cryptococcus neoformans research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Chitosan, Mutant, Fungal protein, Cryptococcus and Cell wall. Her study explores the link between Cell wall and topics such as Chitin that cross with problems in Yeast.
Her work deals with themes such as Oxidative stress, Immune system and Saccharomyces cerevisiae, which intersect with Microbiology. Her Gene study necessitates a more in-depth grasp of Genetics. Her work on Virulence factor as part of general Virulence research is frequently linked to Population, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science.
Jennifer K. Lodge mostly deals with Cryptococcus neoformans, Virulence, Microbiology, Chitin and Cell wall. Her Cryptococcus neoformans study incorporates themes from Chitosan and Cryptococcus. Her work carried out in the field of Virulence brings together such families of science as Extrachromosomal DNA, Glutaredoxin and Mutant.
The study incorporates disciplines such as Plasmid and Genome in addition to Mutant. Her Microbiology study combines topics in areas such as Fungal vaccine and Virology. Her study on Cell wall also encompasses disciplines like
Her primary scientific interests are in Virulence, Microbiology, Cryptococcus neoformans, Population and Virology. The various areas that Jennifer K. Lodge examines in her Virulence study include Chitosan, Chitin, Chitin deacetylase, Mutant and Polysaccharide. Her study brings together the fields of Cell wall and Microbiology.
A majority of her Population research is a blend of other scientific areas, such as Quorum sensing, Proinflammatory cytokine, T cell, Acquired immune system and Cell signaling. Her Virology research incorporates themes from Cryptococcus gattii, Cryptococcus, Cryptococcosis and Fungal vaccine. Her research links Antigen with Fungal vaccine.
