What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Asthma

His main research concerns Asthma, Immunology, Internal medicine, Anesthesia and Exhaled nitric oxide. His Asthma research integrates issues from Respiratory disease, Inhalation, Surgery, Physical therapy and Severity of illness. His studies in Immunology integrate themes in fields like COPD and Lung.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Gastroenterology and Endocrinology in addition to Internal medicine. The concepts of his Anesthesia study are interwoven with issues in Chronic cough, Prednisolone and Bronchodilator. He works mostly in the field of Exhaled nitric oxide, limiting it down to topics relating to Eosinophil and, in certain cases, Allergic inflammation, as a part of the same area of interest.

His most cited work include:

  • International ERS/ATS guidelines on definition, evaluation and treatment of severe asthma (1799 citations)
  • Identification of Asthma Phenotypes Using Cluster Analysis in the Severe Asthma Research Program (1383 citations)
  • Neutrophilic inflammation in severe persistent asthma. (749 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Asthma, Immunology, Internal medicine, Endocrinology and Inflammation. As a part of the same scientific family, Kian Fan Chung mostly works in the field of Asthma, focusing on Anesthesia and, on occasion, Chronic cough. The various areas that he examines in his Immunology study include COPD and Bronchoalveolar lavage.

Kian Fan Chung frequently studies issues relating to Gastroenterology and Internal medicine. Kian Fan Chung studies Dexamethasone which is a part of Endocrinology. His research investigates the link between Inflammation and topics such as Lung that cross with problems in Pathology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Asthma (40.20%)
  • Immunology (39.09%)
  • Internal medicine (27.73%)

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

  • Asthma (40.20%)
  • Immunology (39.09%)
  • Internal medicine (27.73%)

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

His primary areas of study are Asthma, Immunology, Internal medicine, Inflammation and Severe asthma. His study in Asthma is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Phenotype, Allergy and Intensive care medicine. His Immunology study incorporates themes from FURIN Gene, TMPRSS2 and Respiratory system.

His research integrates issues of Gastroenterology and Endocrinology in his study of Internal medicine. Kian Fan Chung combines subjects such as Interleukin 33, Lung, Cytokine and Pharmacology with his study of Inflammation. He studied Lung and Oxidative stress that intersect with Bronchoalveolar lavage.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Multiancestry association study identifies new asthma risk loci that colocalize with immune-cell enhancer marks (203 citations)
  • Multiancestry association study identifies new asthma risk loci that colocalize with immune-cell enhancer marks (203 citations)
  • Management of severe asthma: a European Respiratory Society/American Thoracic Society guideline (104 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Enzyme

Kian Fan Chung spends much of his time researching Asthma, Immunology, Allergy, Respiratory system and Inflammation. His Asthma research includes themes of Genome-wide association study, MEDLINE, Phenotype, Intensive care medicine and Disease. As part of his studies on Immunology, Kian Fan Chung frequently links adjacent subjects like Downregulation and upregulation.

The Allergy study combines topics in areas such as Proteome, Asthma treatment, Eosinophilic and Rhinovirus. Kian Fan Chung interconnects Respiratory disease, Lung microbiome and Pathogenesis in the investigation of issues within Respiratory system. He combines subjects such as Cancer research, Cytokine, Eosinophilia, Lung and Mitochondrial fission with his study of Inflammation.
