Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Immune system
  • Antibody

His primary scientific interests are in Cell biology, Immunology, Molecular biology, Natural killer cell and Interleukin 21. His Cell biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Receptor and Cell surface receptor. His Receptor research incorporates elements of Tyrosine, NK Cell Lectin-Like Receptor Subfamily D, MHC class I and NK Cell Receptors.

His Molecular biology research incorporates themes from KIR3DL2, T cell and CD3, CD8, Antigen. His work carried out in the field of Natural killer cell brings together such families of science as NKG2D, Immune receptor, Human leukocyte antigen and Major histocompatibility complex. His Interleukin 21 research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Natural killer T cell, Interleukin 12 and IL-2 receptor.

His most cited work include:

  • Activation of NK cells and T cells by NKG2D, a receptor for stress-inducible MICA. (2501 citations)
  • NK CELL RECOGNITION (2333 citations)
  • Innate or Adaptive Immunity? The Example of Natural Killer Cells (1717 citations)

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

His main research concerns Immunology, Cell biology, Molecular biology, Interleukin 21 and Receptor. His Immunology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Natural killer cell, Cytotoxic T cell and NKG2D. His Cell biology study typically links adjacent topics like Cytotoxicity.

The Molecular biology study combines topics in areas such as T cell, CD3, CD8, Antigen and Monoclonal antibody. He combines subjects such as Interleukin 12, IL-2 receptor and Antigen-presenting cell with his study of Interleukin 21. His Receptor study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Cell, Tyrosine and MHC class I.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (38.38%)
  • Cell biology (34.18%)
  • Molecular biology (33.16%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Immunology (38.38%)
  • Immune system (14.14%)
  • Cell biology (34.18%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Immunology, Immune system, Cell biology, Interleukin 12 and Interleukin 21. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Natural killer cell, Cytotoxic T cell and Virology. In his research on the topic of Cell biology, Bone marrow is strongly related with Cell growth.

His research investigates the connection between Interleukin 12 and topics such as NKG2D that intersect with issues in Molecular biology and CD8. Many of his research projects under Interleukin 21 are closely connected to Muromegalovirus with Muromegalovirus, tying the diverse disciplines of science together. His research integrates issues of Natural killer T cell and Acquired immune system in his study of Lymphokine-activated killer cell.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • NK cells and cancer: you can teach innate cells new tricks (478 citations)
  • Epigenetic modification and antibody-dependent expansion of memory-like NK cells in human cytomegalovirus-infected individuals (303 citations)
  • Natural killer cell memory in infection, inflammation and cancer (267 citations)
