  • Neutrino (8.71%)
  • Cell biology (16.27%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Immunology, Neutrino, Cell biology, Particle physics and Nuclear physics. His research in Immunology focuses on subjects like Protease, which are connected to Epicutaneous sensitization. Ko Okumura interconnects Energy, Electron and Cherenkov detector in the investigation of issues within Neutrino.

His Cell biology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Mast cell, Chemokine, Receptor and Cytokine. His Receptor study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Cell culture and Antibody. His Nuclear physics research incorporates elements of Beam and Cross section.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Measurements of neutrino oscillation in appearance and disappearance channels by the T2K experiment with 6.6E20 protons on target (240 citations)
  • A pilot study of operational tolerance with a regulatory T-cell-based cell therapy in living donor liver transplantation. (192 citations)
  • Constraint on the matter–antimatter symmetry-violating phase in neutrino oscillations (153 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Immune system
  • Internal medicine

Ko Okumura focuses on Neutrino, Particle physics, Immunology, Neutrino oscillation and Nuclear physics. His Neutrino research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Neutron, Nucleon and Cherenkov detector. As part of the same scientific family, Ko Okumura usually focuses on Particle physics, concentrating on Proton and intersecting with Proton Synchrotron and J-PARC.

His study connects Cell biology and Immunology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Standard Model, CP violation and Lepton in addition to Neutrino oscillation. His work in the fields of Nuclear physics, such as Solar neutrino problem, overlaps with other areas such as Early career.
