Fellow of The Academy of Medical Sciences, United Kingdom


What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Immune system

His primary scientific interests are in Immunology, Human leukocyte antigen, Major histocompatibility complex, MHC class II and Multiple sclerosis. His study in MHC class I and Autoimmunity is carried out as part of his Immunology studies. His Human leukocyte antigen research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Myelin basic protein and T-cell receptor.

His studies deal with areas such as Allele and Histocompatibility as well as Major histocompatibility complex. His Multiple sclerosis research incorporates elements of Inflammation, Neuroscience, Immune system and Neurodegeneration. His research in Experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis focuses on subjects like T lymphocyte, which are connected to CD8, Cytokine, Neuroglia, Interleukin 17 and Lymph node.

His most cited work include:

  • Immune response to glutamic acid decarboxylase correlates with insulitis in non-obese diabetic mice (909 citations)
  • Immunopathology of multiple sclerosis (907 citations)
  • Immunopathology of multiple sclerosis (907 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Immunology, Multiple sclerosis, Genetics, Major histocompatibility complex and Molecular biology. His research on Immunology often connects related topics like Disease. He combines subjects such as Myelin, Neuroscience, Neuroprotection and Pathology with his study of Multiple sclerosis.

His studies in Neuroscience integrate themes in fields like Neuropeptide, Orexin and Neurodegeneration. His research investigates the connection between Major histocompatibility complex and topics such as T-cell receptor that intersect with problems in Myelin basic protein, Genetically modified mouse and Receptor. His Molecular biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Biochemistry, Peptide, Allele frequency, Peptide binding and Antigen presentation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (59.05%)
  • Multiple sclerosis (33.19%)
  • Genetics (23.28%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Immunology (59.05%)
  • Disease (18.97%)
  • Multiple sclerosis (33.19%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Immunology, Disease, Multiple sclerosis, Human leukocyte antigen and Immune system. Immunology is closely attributed to In vitro in his work. His Optic neuritis study in the realm of Multiple sclerosis interacts with subjects such as Amiloride.

The study incorporates disciplines such as MHC class I, Antigen specific and Protective immunity in addition to Human leukocyte antigen. His Immune system study combines topics in areas such as Immunopathology, MEDLINE and Intensive care medicine. His Autoimmunity study incorporates themes from Neurodegeneration, Major histocompatibility complex and Neuroscience.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Immunopathology of multiple sclerosis (907 citations)
  • Immunopathology of multiple sclerosis (907 citations)
  • The Human Cell Atlas (853 citations)
