Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Virus
  • Internal medicine
  • Gene

Kwok-Hung Chan mostly deals with Virology, Coronavirus, Immunology, Virus and Viral load. His research on Virology often connects related topics like Respiratory tract infections. His Coronavirus research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Alphacoronavirus and Coronaviridae.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Respiratory disease and Internal medicine. His work focuses on many connections between Virus and other disciplines, such as Interferon, that overlap with his field of interest in Viral Plaque Assay and Rimantadine. His research integrates issues of Titer, Saliva, Viral nucleocapsid and Hamster in his study of Viral load.

His most cited work include:

  • A familial cluster of pneumonia associated with the 2019 novel coronavirus indicating person-to-person transmission: a study of a family cluster. (4224 citations)
  • Coronavirus as a possible cause of severe acute respiratory syndrome (2222 citations)
  • Temporal profiles of viral load in posterior oropharyngeal saliva samples and serum antibody responses during infection by SARS-CoV-2: an observational cohort study. (1668 citations)

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

Kwok-Hung Chan spends much of his time researching Virology, Virus, Immunology, Coronavirus and Influenza A virus. His Virology study incorporates themes from Antibody and Genome. His work carried out in the field of Virus brings together such families of science as Interferon, Antigen and Microbiology.

His study explores the link between Immunology and topics such as Internal medicine that cross with problems in Gastroenterology. His Coronavirus research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Alphacoronavirus, Coronaviridae and Betacoronavirus. His Pneumonia research includes themes of Respiratory tract infections and Intensive care medicine.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Virology (60.12%)
  • Virus (33.43%)
  • Immunology (26.39%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Virology (60.12%)
  • Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (6.45%)
  • Virus (33.43%)

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

Kwok-Hung Chan focuses on Virology, Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, Virus, Coronavirus and Internal medicine. His work on Vero cell as part of general Virology study is frequently connected to Pandemic, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. His Virus research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Immunogenicity and Hamster.

Kwok-Hung Chan integrates many fields in his works, including Coronavirus, Viral load, Pneumonia, Respiratory virus, Respiratory system and Etiology. Kwok-Hung Chan works mostly in the field of Pneumonia, limiting it down to concerns involving Asymptomatic and, occasionally, Outbreak. His studies in Internal medicine integrate themes in fields like Gastroenterology, Antibody and Ribavirin.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A familial cluster of pneumonia associated with the 2019 novel coronavirus indicating person-to-person transmission: a study of a family cluster. (4224 citations)
  • Temporal profiles of viral load in posterior oropharyngeal saliva samples and serum antibody responses during infection by SARS-CoV-2: an observational cohort study. (1668 citations)
  • Consistent Detection of 2019 Novel Coronavirus in Saliva. (777 citations)

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

  • Virus
  • Internal medicine
  • Gene

His primary areas of investigation include Coronavirus, Virology, Viral load, Internal medicine and Vero cell. His Coronavirus studies intersect with other disciplines such as Pneumonia and Respiratory tract infections. His Pneumonia research incorporates elements of Viral shedding and Outbreak.

Kwok-Hung Chan has researched Virology in several fields, including Cell damage and Respiratory system. His Viral load study is related to the wider topic of Virus. He combines subjects such as Gastroenterology and Antibody, Neutralizing antibody with his study of Internal medicine.
