Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Bacteria
  • Disease

His primary areas of study are Microbiology, Candida albicans, Corpus albicans, Immunology and Biofilm. His Microbiology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Streptococcus mutans, In vitro and Yeast. His Candida albicans study incorporates themes from Adhesion, Incubation, Saliva and Mycosis.

His research investigates the connection between Corpus albicans and topics such as Virulence that intersect with problems in Fungal protein. His studies deal with areas such as Oral and maxillofacial pathology, Disease, Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome and Oral microbiology as well as Immunology. As part of one scientific family, he deals mainly with the area of Biofilm, narrowing it down to issues related to the Lactobacillus acidophilus, and often Lactobacillus rhamnosus.

His most cited work include:

  • A comparison of oral rinse and imprint sampling techniques for the detection of yeast, coliform and Staphylococcus aureus carriage in the oral cavity (260 citations)
  • Candida and Oral Candidosis: A Review (253 citations)
  • Biofilm lifestyle of Candida: a mini review. (242 citations)

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

Lakshman P. Samaranayake mostly deals with Microbiology, Candida albicans, Corpus albicans, Dentistry and Biofilm. Lakshman P. Samaranayake combines subjects such as Saliva, Yeast and Virulence with his study of Microbiology. His study on Saliva is mostly dedicated to connecting different topics, such as Immunology.

Lakshman P. Samaranayake has researched Candida albicans in several fields, including Fungi imperfecti and Biochemistry. His Corpus albicans research integrates issues from Adhesion, In vitro and Mycosis. His research ties Internal medicine and Dentistry together.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Microbiology (47.96%)
  • Candida albicans (30.79%)
  • Corpus albicans (19.85%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2021)?

  • Microbiology (47.96%)
  • Biofilm (17.18%)
  • Candida albicans (30.79%)

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

Lakshman P. Samaranayake mainly investigates Microbiology, Biofilm, Candida albicans, Corpus albicans and Dentistry. His studies in Microbiology integrate themes in fields like In vitro, Yeast and Virulence. The various areas that he examines in his Biofilm study include Streptococcus mutans, Oral Microbiome, Silver diamine fluoride and Adhesion.

His research on Candida albicans frequently connects to adjacent areas such as Caspofungin. The concepts of his Corpus albicans study are interwoven with issues in Curcumin and Hypha. The Dentistry study combines topics in areas such as Internal medicine, Randomized controlled trial, Saliva and Intensive care medicine.

Between 2011 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The Interplay of Dental Pulp Stem Cells and Endothelial Cells in an Injectable Peptide Hydrogel on Angiogenesis and Pulp Regeneration In Vivo (99 citations)
  • Antibacterial effects of silver diamine fluoride on multi-species cariogenic biofilm on caries. (95 citations)
  • Probiotic lactobacilli inhibit early stages of Candida albicans biofilm development by reducing their growth, cell adhesion, and filamentation (76 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Bacteria
  • Disease

His scientific interests lie mostly in Microbiology, Biofilm, Candida albicans, Dentistry and Virulence. Lakshman P. Samaranayake works in the field of Microbiology, namely Drug resistance. His work deals with themes such as Adhesion, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Crystal violet and Tryptic soy broth, which intersect with Biofilm.

His work on Candida albicans deals in particular with Corpus albicans and Candida tropicalis. In his research, Strain is intimately related to Gene expression, which falls under the overarching field of Corpus albicans. His Dentistry research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Internal medicine and Saliva.
