1951 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Virus
  • Internal medicine
  • Enzyme

His primary areas of investigation include Virology, Virus, Antigen, Immunology and Antibody. His work on Tissue culture expands to the thematically related Virology. His work carried out in the field of Virus brings together such families of science as Molecular biology, Cell, Microbiology and Pathology.

Within one scientific family, Joseph L. Melnick focuses on topics pertaining to Herpesviridae under Pathology, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Internal medicine and Human cytomegalovirus. Joseph L. Melnick works mostly in the field of Antigen, limiting it down to topics relating to Artery and, in certain cases, Pathogenesis and Congenital cytomegalovirus infection. His Immunology study incorporates themes from Asymptomatic, Epidemiology and Vascular disease.

His most cited work include:

  • Defectiveness of Interferon Production and of Rubella Virus Interference in a Line of African Green Monkey Kidney Cells (Vero) (345 citations)
  • CYTOMEGALOVIRUS ANTIGEN WITHIN HUMAN ARTERIAL SMOOTH MUSCLE CELLS (277 citations)
  • Cohort Study of Cytomegalovirus Infection as a Risk Factor for Carotid Intimal-Medial Thickening, a Measure of Subclinical Atherosclerosis (263 citations)

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

Joseph L. Melnick focuses on Virology, Virus, Antigen, Antibody and Immunology. Joseph L. Melnick focuses mostly in the field of Virology, narrowing it down to matters related to Microbiology and, in some cases, Sewage. His Virus research incorporates themes from Tissue culture and Pathology.

His Antigen study combines topics in areas such as Molecular biology, HBsAg and Hepatitis. As part of one scientific family, Joseph L. Melnick deals mainly with the area of Hepatitis, narrowing it down to issues related to the Hepatitis B, and often Hepatitis B virus. The Poliomyelitis study combines topics in areas such as Paralysis, Prevalence, Outbreak and Vaccination.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Virology (56.94%)
  • Virus (35.51%)
  • Antigen (19.80%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 1981-2016)?

  • Virology (56.94%)
  • Virus (35.51%)
  • Immunology (15.71%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Virology, Virus, Immunology, Antibody and Antigen. His study in Virology focuses on Poliovirus, Hepatitis B virus, Enterovirus, Hepatitis and HBsAg. His work deals with themes such as Flocculation, Poliomyelitis and Serology, which intersect with Poliovirus.

Joseph L. Melnick has researched Virus in several fields, including Microbiology and Pathology. His Antigen study also includes fields such as

  • Molecular biology that connect with fields like Cyclic peptide,
  • Artery, which have a strong connection to Herpes simplex virus. His studies in Congenital cytomegalovirus infection integrate themes in fields like Internal medicine and Herpesviridae.

Between 1981 and 2016, his most popular works were:

  • CYTOMEGALOVIRUS ANTIGEN WITHIN HUMAN ARTERIAL SMOOTH MUSCLE CELLS (277 citations)
  • Cohort Study of Cytomegalovirus Infection as a Risk Factor for Carotid Intimal-Medial Thickening, a Measure of Subclinical Atherosclerosis (263 citations)
  • High levels of cytomegalovirus antibody in patients requiring vascular surgery for atherosclerosis. (247 citations)

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

  • Virus
  • Internal medicine
  • Enzyme

Virology, Virus, Immunology, Antigen and Antibody are his primary areas of study. His study involves Hepatitis B virus, Enterovirus, Poliovirus, Hepatitis and Human cytomegalovirus, a branch of Virology. As part of his studies on Virus, Joseph L. Melnick often connects relevant areas like Immune system.

His Immunology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Cytotoxic T cell, Cytolysis, Epidemiology and Giant cell. The various areas that Joseph L. Melnick examines in his Antigen study include Artery, Feces and Syncytium. His Antibody research focuses on subjects like Peptide, which are linked to Amino acid.
