Katherine A. Fitzgerald mostly deals with Cell biology, Inflammasome, Signal transduction, Molecular biology and Immunology. She interconnects Pyroptosis, Programmed cell death, Inflammation and Innate immune system, Immune system in the investigation of issues within Cell biology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Proinflammatory cytokine and Autophagy in addition to Inflammasome.
The concepts of her Signal transduction study are interwoven with issues in Receptor, TRIF and Caspase-11. Her Molecular biology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as RNA, RIG-I, Transcription factor and Gene expression. Katherine A. Fitzgerald has included themes like Endocrinology, Cathepsin B and Internal medicine in her Immunology study.
Her primary areas of study are Cell biology, Innate immune system, Immunology, Inflammasome and Signal transduction. Her Cell biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Receptor and Toll-like receptor. Her research integrates issues of Interferon and Virology in her study of Innate immune system.
The Inflammasome study combines topics in areas such as Secretion and Microbiology. In her study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Signal transduction, RNA, Gene expression and Transcription factor is strongly linked to Molecular biology. Her studies in AIM2 integrate themes in fields like DNA and IFI16.
Katherine A. Fitzgerald mainly investigates Cell biology, Innate immune system, Immune system, Immunology and Inflammation. Her Cell biology research integrates issues from Pyroptosis, Inflammasome, Programmed cell death, Interferon and Regulator. Her Inflammasome research focuses on AIM2 in particular.
Her Innate immune system research incorporates themes from Acquired immune system, Nucleic acid, Plasmodium falciparum, Hemozoin and Regulation of gene expression. Her work on Proinflammatory cytokine, Malaria and Colitis as part of general Immunology research is frequently linked to Sting, bridging the gap between disciplines. Her Inflammation study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Receptor, Signal transduction and Cytokine.
