2012 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)
His primary scientific interests are in Immunology, T cell, Autoimmune disease, Molecular biology and Peptide sequence. His research in Immunology intersects with topics in Apoptosis, Cancer research and Congenic. Kenneth S. K. Tung interconnects Endocrinology, Zona pellucida glycoprotein, Epitope, Antigen and Internal medicine in the investigation of issues within T cell.
Kenneth S. K. Tung has researched Autoimmune disease in several fields, including Spleen, Oophoritis and CD8. The concepts of his Molecular biology study are interwoven with issues in Epithelium, Plasma protein binding, Oviduct, Autoantibody and B cell. His studies deal with areas such as Oocyte, Zona pellucida, Embryo and Immunoelectron microscopy as well as Peptide sequence.
His primary areas of study are Immunology, Autoimmune disease, Autoantibody, T cell and Antigen. His study in Immunology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Orchitis and Internal medicine. His work focuses on many connections between Autoimmune disease and other disciplines, such as Oophoritis, that overlap with his field of interest in Premature ovarian failure.
His Autoantibody research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Pathogenesis and Autoimmune Gastritis. His T cell research integrates issues from Molecular mimicry, Zona pellucida glycoprotein, Zona pellucida, B cell and Epitope. In Antigen, he works on issues like Antibody, which are connected to Sperm.
His primary areas of investigation include Immunology, Autoantibody, Autoimmunity, T cell and Immune system. In his study, Kenneth S. K. Tung carries out multidisciplinary Immunology and Vasectomy research. His Autoantibody study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as IL-2 receptor, Parietal cell and Autoimmune Gastritis.
He has researched Autoimmunity in several fields, including Systemic lupus erythematosus, Immune tolerance, Antigen and B-cell activating factor. His Antigen study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Sperm, Sertoli cell, Spermatogenesis and Germ cell. His T cell research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Deep cervical lymph nodes, Lymph, Immunophenotyping, Food allergy and Immunoglobulin E.
Kenneth S. K. Tung spends much of his time researching Immunology, Autoimmunity, Cell biology, T cell and B-cell activating factor. His study deals with a combination of Immunology and Vasectomy. Kenneth S. K. Tung has included themes like Autoantibody and Antigen in his Autoimmunity study.
His studies in Antigen integrate themes in fields like Sertoli cell, Spermatogenesis, Interferon gamma, Germ cell and Sperm. His research in Cell biology focuses on subjects like Immune tolerance, which are connected to Cytotoxic T cell, Antigen-presenting cell, Lymphocyte costimulation, Adoptive cell transfer and Signal transduction. The T cell study combines topics in areas such as Phenotype, Neurodegeneration, Central nervous system, Lymph and Immunophenotyping.
