Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Immune system
  • Gene
  • Antibody

His primary scientific interests are in Immunology, Virology, CD8, T cell and IL-2 receptor. His Immunology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Orthopoxvirus and Modified vaccinia Ankara. His Virology study frequently draws connections to other fields, such as Antigen.

His CD8 research includes themes of Epitope, Interleukin-7 receptor, T lymphocyte and Major histocompatibility complex. His IL-2 receptor research integrates issues from Natural killer T cell, Interleukin 21 and Antigen-presenting cell. His Antigen-presenting cell research incorporates themes from MHC restriction and Antigen presentation.

His most cited work include:

  • Phenotypic Analysis of Antigen-Specific T Lymphocytes (3448 citations)
  • Counting Antigen-Specific CD8 T Cells: A Reevaluation of Bystander Activation during Viral Infection (1839 citations)
  • Viral Immune Evasion Due to Persistence of Activated T Cells Without Effector Function (1544 citations)

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

John D. Altman spends much of his time researching Virology, CD8, T cell, Immunology and Interleukin 21. His studies in Virology integrate themes in fields like Epitope and CTL*. John D. Altman interconnects Molecular biology, Human leukocyte antigen, Major histocompatibility complex and Spleen in the investigation of issues within CD8.

The T cell study combines topics in areas such as Antigen and Cell biology. The Lymphocytic choriomeningitis, T lymphocyte and Lymphocyte research John D. Altman does as part of his general Immunology study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Population and Mycobacterium tuberculosis, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. His research investigates the connection with Interleukin 21 and areas like IL-2 receptor which intersect with concerns in Antigen-presenting cell, Natural killer T cell and Cancer research.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Virology (47.30%)
  • CD8 (45.95%)
  • T cell (50.00%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2021)?

  • T cell (50.00%)
  • Cell biology (28.38%)
  • T-cell receptor (22.97%)

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

His primary areas of study are T cell, Cell biology, T-cell receptor, Antigen and CD1. His T cell research includes elements of CD8 and Virology. John D. Altman combines subjects such as Viral replication and Simian immunodeficiency virus with his study of CD8.

His T-cell receptor research incorporates elements of Antigen-presenting cell, Lipidomics, Molecular biology, Lipopeptide and Major histocompatibility complex. His Antigen study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Sequence motif, Peptide sequence and Sequence analysis. The CD1 study which covers Antigen presentation that intersects with Biochemistry.

Between 2011 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A conserved human T cell population targets mycobacterial antigens presented by CD1b (146 citations)
  • CD1a-autoreactive T cells recognize natural skin oils that function as headless antigens (106 citations)
  • CD1c tetramers detect ex vivo T cell responses to processed phosphomycoketide antigens (76 citations)

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

  • Immune system
  • Gene
  • Antibody

T-cell receptor, T cell, Antigen, Antigen presentation and Biochemistry are his primary areas of study. As a member of one scientific family, John D. Altman mostly works in the field of T-cell receptor, focusing on Cell biology and, on occasion, Major histocompatibility complex, Receptor and CD1D. His work on Antigen-presenting cell and Antigen processing as part of general T cell study is frequently connected to Population, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them.

His research in Antigen-presenting cell intersects with topics in Ex vivo, Interleukin 21 and Bacterial antigen. His study in the field of CD1 and MHC class I also crosses realms of Protein footprinting. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Immune system and Bacteria.
