Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Immune system
  • Antibody
  • Gene

Immunology, Immune system, Antibody, Immunoglobulin A and Molecular biology are his primary areas of study. His Immunology study often links to related topics such as Microbiology. His work carried out in the field of Immune system brings together such families of science as Adjuvant, Cytokine and Virology.

As part of his studies on Antibody, he often connects relevant subjects like Saliva. His research in Immunoglobulin A intersects with topics in Peyer's patch, Immunoglobulin M and Plasma cell differentiation. Jerry R. McGhee interconnects T lymphocyte, Interleukin 5, ELISPOT, CD8 and Interferon gamma in the investigation of issues within Molecular biology.

His most cited work include:

  • The mucosal immune system : from fundamental concepts to vaccine development (866 citations)
  • Immunoglobulin A (IgA): molecular and cellular interactions involved in IgA biosynthesis and immune response. (856 citations)
  • A bactericidal effect for human lactoferrin (578 citations)

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

Jerry R. McGhee spends much of his time researching Immunology, Immune system, Antigen, Antibody and T cell. Cytokine, Immunity, Immunoglobulin A, B cell and Adjuvant are the primary areas of interest in his Immunology study. His Immune system research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Spleen and Virology, Vaccination.

The concepts of his Antigen study are interwoven with issues in Adoptive cell transfer and CD40. His studies deal with areas such as Cholera toxin, Microbiology and Saliva as well as Antibody. His research integrates issues of Molecular biology, Cytotoxic T cell, T lymphocyte and CD8 in his study of T cell.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (62.35%)
  • Immune system (40.83%)
  • Antigen (32.03%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 1999-2017)?

  • Immunology (62.35%)
  • Immune system (40.83%)
  • Cholera toxin (9.78%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Immunology, Immune system, Cholera toxin, Antigen and Cytokine. Immunology connects with themes related to Microbiology in his study. The various areas that Jerry R. McGhee examines in his Immune system study include Pathology, Virology, Nasal administration and CD40.

His Cholera toxin research integrates issues from Epithelium, Toxin, Saliva, Toxoid and Receptor. Jerry R. McGhee has researched Antigen in several fields, including Mucosal immunity and Intraepithelial lymphocyte. His Cytokine study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Chemokine, Inflammation, Molecular biology and B cell.

Between 1999 and 2017, his most popular works were:

  • Cutting Edge: The Mucosal Adjuvant Cholera Toxin Redirects Vaccine Proteins into Olfactory Tissues (329 citations)
  • A dilemma for mucosal vaccination: efficacy versus toxicity using enterotoxin-based adjuvants. (162 citations)
  • Peyer's patches are required for oral tolerance to proteins (145 citations)

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

  • Immune system
  • Antibody
  • Gene

Jerry R. McGhee mainly investigates Immunology, Immune system, Antigen, Cholera toxin and Cytokine. In Immunology, Jerry R. McGhee works on issues like Microbiology, which are connected to Orthomyxoviridae. His Immune system study combines topics in areas such as CD40, Virology, Spleen, Disease and Gut Epithelium.

Jerry R. McGhee studies Antigen, namely Humoral immunity. His Cholera toxin research includes elements of Molecular biology and Toxoid. His work deals with themes such as Colitis, Proinflammatory cytokine, Immunization and B cell, which intersect with Cytokine.
