Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Bacteria
  • Genetics

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Microbiology, Mycobacterium marinum, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Immune system and Mycobacterium. Lalita Ramakrishnan has researched Microbiology in several fields, including Yersinia, Yersinia pseudotuberculosis, Virulence, Tuberculosis and Aequorea victoria. Her Mycobacterium marinum study is concerned with the field of Genetics as a whole.

Lalita Ramakrishnan frequently studies issues relating to Pharmacology and Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Her research in Immune system tackles topics such as Granuloma which are related to areas like Macrophage. In her research, Pathogen, Zebrafish and Gene is intimately related to Virology, which falls under the overarching field of Mycobacterium.

Her most cited work include:

  • The role of the granuloma in expansion and dissemination of early tuberculous infection. (634 citations)
  • Revisiting the role of the granuloma in tuberculosis (469 citations)
  • Real-time visualization of mycobacterium-macrophage interactions leading to initiation of granuloma formation in zebrafish embryos. (435 citations)

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

Her primary areas of study are Tuberculosis, Microbiology, Immunology, Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Mycobacterium marinum. The various areas that Lalita Ramakrishnan examines in her Tuberculosis study include Immunity, Receptor, Disease, Drug resistance and In vivo. Her work carried out in the field of Microbiology brings together such families of science as Macrophage, Zebrafish, Mycobacterium and Virulence.

Her Mycobacterium tuberculosis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Virology, Efflux, Drug tolerance, Pharmacology and Human pathogen. Her research in Mycobacterium marinum intersects with topics in Pathogen, Whole genome sequencing and Macrophage homeostasis. Her research in Immune system focuses on subjects like Host, which are connected to Evasion and Organism.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Tuberculosis (48.36%)
  • Microbiology (40.98%)
  • Immunology (47.54%)

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

  • Immunology (47.54%)
  • Tuberculosis (48.36%)
  • Mycobacterium tuberculosis (39.34%)

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

Her primary areas of investigation include Immunology, Tuberculosis, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Tuberculous meningitis and Tumor necrosis factor alpha. Lalita Ramakrishnan works in the field of Immunology, focusing on Granuloma in particular. Her Tuberculosis study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Disease, Zebrafish and Family medicine.

Her Mycobacterium tuberculosis research integrates issues from Microbiology and Virulence. Her work deals with themes such as Macrophage, Mutant and Isoniazid, which intersect with Microbiology. Her studies deal with areas such as Secretion and Mycobacterium marinum as well as Virulence.

Between 2017 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Revisiting the timetable of tuberculosis (128 citations)
  • The Formation and Function of Granulomas. (71 citations)
  • Is Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection life long (45 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Bacteria
  • Genetics

Lalita Ramakrishnan focuses on Zebrafish, Tuberculosis, Organogenesis, Larva and Juvenile. The study incorporates disciplines such as Mycobacterium marinum and Ocular Pathology, Pathology in addition to Zebrafish. The Tuberculosis study combines topics in areas such as Public health and Family medicine.

Her Organogenesis research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Zoology, Zebrafish larvae and Model organism.
