Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Pathology

Her primary scientific interests are in Immunology, Pediatrics, Epidemiology, Public health and Disease. Her Immunology study frequently draws connections between related disciplines such as Internal medicine. Her Pediatrics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Zika virus, Cohort study, Pregnancy and Etiology.

Her Epidemiology research integrates issues from Incidence, Medical diagnosis, Randomized controlled trial, Demography and Outbreak. The concepts of her Public health study are interwoven with issues in Gerontology, Environmental health, Transmission, Physical therapy and Lung disease. She has included themes like Stroke, Prospective cohort study, Surgery and Risk factor in her Disease study.

Her most cited work include:

  • Study of infectious intestinal disease in England: rates in the community, presenting to general practice, and reported to national surveillance (753 citations)
  • Decreased atopy in children infected with Schistosoma haematobium: a role for parasite-induced interleukin-10. (630 citations)
  • Protective Effect of BCG against Tuberculous Meningitis and Miliary Tuberculosis: A Meta-Analysis (533 citations)

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

Laura C. Rodrigues mainly investigates Pediatrics, Immunology, Tuberculosis, Environmental health and Epidemiology. Her Pediatrics research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Pregnancy, Incidence, Cohort and Case-control study. Her study in Immunology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Internal medicine and Disease.

She has researched Tuberculosis in several fields, including Young adult, Surgery and Vaccination. Her studies in Environmental health integrate themes in fields like Cross-sectional study, Rural area, Asthma, Public health and Socioeconomic status. Laura C. Rodrigues works mostly in the field of Epidemiology, limiting it down to concerns involving Demography and, occasionally, Gerontology and Risk factor.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Pediatrics (27.04%)
  • Immunology (21.89%)
  • Tuberculosis (19.10%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Pediatrics (27.04%)
  • Zika virus (6.65%)
  • Microcephaly (5.79%)

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

Her main research concerns Pediatrics, Zika virus, Microcephaly, Cohort and Tuberculosis. Her Pediatrics research incorporates themes from Wheeze, Retrospective cohort study and Rash. Her study on Zika virus also encompasses disciplines like

  • Pregnancy which connect with Dengue fever, Obstetrics and Epidemiology,
  • Outbreak, which have a strong connection to Disease cluster,
  • Transmission most often made with reference to Public health.

Her Epidemiology study often links to related topics such as Immunology. She has included themes like Cohort study, Leprosy, Demography, Odds and Socioeconomic status in her Cohort study. Her work carried out in the field of Tuberculosis brings together such families of science as Logistic regression, Young adult, Vaccination, Poverty and Confounding.

Between 2015 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Association between Zika virus infection and microcephaly in Brazil, January to May, 2016: preliminary report of a case-control study (274 citations)
  • History, Epidemiology, and Clinical Manifestations of Zika: A Systematic Review (177 citations)
  • Initial Description of the Presumed Congenital Zika Syndrome. (173 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Pathology

Her primary areas of study are Zika virus, Microcephaly, Pediatrics, Pregnancy and Public health. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Dengue virus, Demography, Epidemiology and Outbreak. The Epidemiology study combines topics in areas such as BCG vaccine, Methodological quality, Immunology and Urbanization.

Her Pediatrics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Vital signs, Gerontology, Retrospective cohort study, Vaccination and Rash. Her studies examine the connections between Vaccination and genetics, as well as such issues in Cohort study, with regards to Tuberculosis. Her Pregnancy study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Case-control study and Dengue fever.
