What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Immune system
  • Enzyme

Immunology, Immune system, Interleukin 4, Nippostrongylus brasiliensis and Cytokine are his primary areas of study. Heligmosomoides polygyrus, Inflammation, Immunoglobulin E, Immunity and Interleukin 13 are among the areas of Immunology where the researcher is concentrating his efforts. The Immune system study combines topics in areas such as Helminths, Helminthiasis and Microbiology.

Joseph F. Urban has researched Interleukin 4 in several fields, including Receptor, Molecular biology, Cell biology, Antibody and In vivo. The study incorporates disciplines such as Mast cell, T cell, Signal transduction and Trichinella spiralis in addition to Nippostrongylus brasiliensis. Joseph F. Urban interconnects Trichuris muris, Gene expression and Protective immunity in the investigation of issues within Cytokine.

His most cited work include:

  • Lymphokine control of in vivo immunoglobulin isotype selection. (1166 citations)
  • Protective immune mechanisms in helminth infection (691 citations)
  • Trichuris suis therapy in Crohn’s disease (628 citations)

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

Joseph F. Urban mainly investigates Immunology, Immune system, Microbiology, Cell biology and Heligmosomoides polygyrus. His research in Nippostrongylus brasiliensis, Interleukin 4, Immunoglobulin E, Immunity and Cytokine are components of Immunology. His research integrates issues of Molecular biology and In vivo in his study of Interleukin 4.

Joseph F. Urban has included themes like Inflammation, Helminths and Effector in his Immune system study. His work deals with themes such as Trichuris suis, Ascaris suum and Nematode infection, which intersect with Microbiology. His Cell biology research incorporates themes from Epithelium and Transcription factor.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (49.78%)
  • Immune system (25.11%)
  • Microbiology (14.98%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Immune system (25.11%)
  • Particle physics (5.73%)
  • Cell biology (13.44%)

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

Joseph F. Urban mostly deals with Immune system, Particle physics, Cell biology, Inflammation and Immunology. His Immune system research includes elements of Secretion and Microbiology. His work on ATLAS experiment, Higgs boson and Atlas detector as part of his general Particle physics study is frequently connected to Lepton, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science.

Joseph F. Urban has included themes like Cell, Transcription factor and Cytokine in his Cell biology study. His Inflammation study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as STAT6, Unsaturated fat, Endocrinology and Colitis. His research in Immunology intersects with topics in GATA3 and Graft-versus-host disease.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • S1P-dependent interorgan trafficking of group 2 innate lymphoid cells supports host defense. (189 citations)
  • Combination of searches for invisible Higgs boson decays with the ATLAS experiment (94 citations)
  • Search for doubly charged Higgs boson production in multi-lepton final states with the ATLAS detector using proton-proton collisions at s=13TeV. (94 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Immune system

His scientific interests lie mostly in Particle physics, Large Hadron Collider, Nuclear physics, Cell biology and Lepton. He works mostly in the field of Particle physics, limiting it down to topics relating to Atlas and, in certain cases, Luminosity, Photomultiplier and Calorimeter, as a part of the same area of interest. The study incorporates disciplines such as T cell, Immune system, FOXP3 and Cytokine in addition to Cell biology.

His Immune system research integrates issues from Succinate receptor 1 and Goblet cell. His research investigates the connection with Cytokine and areas like Regulation of gene expression which intersect with concerns in Heligmosomoides polygyrus. Joseph F. Urban studies Immunology, focusing on Interleukin 4 in particular.
