Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Virus
  • Gene
  • DNA

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Virology, Virus, Hendra Virus, Henipavirus and Outbreak. His studies deal with areas such as Antibody, Serology and Coronavirus as well as Virology. His Virus research integrates issues from Phylogenetics and Gene.

Lin-Fa Wang works mostly in the field of Hendra Virus, limiting it down to concerns involving RNA virus and, occasionally, Human virome. His Henipavirus research incorporates elements of Paramyxovirinae, Glycoprotein, Eidolon helvum, Henipavirus Infections and Cell fusion. His Outbreak research focuses on Disease reservoir and how it connects with Lagos bat virus.

His most cited work include:

  • Bats are natural reservoirs of SARS-like coronaviruses. (1584 citations)
  • Epidemiologic Features and Clinical Course of Patients Infected With SARS-CoV-2 in Singapore. (1058 citations)
  • Isolation and characterization of a bat SARS-like coronavirus that uses the ACE2 receptor (917 citations)

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

Lin-Fa Wang spends much of his time researching Virology, Virus, Hendra Virus, Henipavirus and Gene. Virology is closely attributed to Antibody in his research. Lin-Fa Wang combines subjects such as Interferon, Serology and Coronavirus with his study of Virus.

Lin-Fa Wang focuses mostly in the field of Hendra Virus, narrowing it down to topics relating to Natural reservoir and, in certain cases, Disease reservoir. His studies examine the connections between Viral replication and genetics, as well as such issues in Immune system, with regards to Cell culture. His work investigates the relationship between Genome and topics such as Evolutionary biology that intersect with problems in Phylogenetics.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Virology (88.28%)
  • Virus (42.72%)
  • Hendra Virus (34.03%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Virology (88.28%)
  • Virus (42.72%)
  • Immune system (12.29%)

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

His main research concerns Virology, Virus, Immune system, Coronavirus disease 2019 and Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2. His studies in Virology integrate themes in fields like Cell culture and Host. His work deals with themes such as Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus, Transcriptome, Genome and Phylogenetics, which intersect with Virus.

His research integrates issues of Inflammasome and Microbiology in his study of Immune system. His Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 research focuses on subjects like Antibody, which are linked to Vaccination. Lin-Fa Wang does research in Hendra Virus, focusing on Henipavirus specifically.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Epidemiologic Features and Clinical Course of Patients Infected With SARS-CoV-2 in Singapore. (1058 citations)
  • SARS-CoV-2-specific T cell immunity in cases of COVID-19 and SARS, and uninfected controls. (553 citations)
  • A SARS-CoV-2 surrogate virus neutralization test based on antibody-mediated blockage of ACE2-spike protein-protein interaction. (226 citations)

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

  • Virus
  • Gene
  • DNA

Virology, Virus, Genome, Pandemic and Pneumonia are his primary areas of study. He combines topics linked to Taxonomy with his work on Virology. His Virus research includes themes of Phenotype, Phylogenetics and Immune system.

The various areas that Lin-Fa Wang examines in his Genome study include Open reading frame, Middle East respiratory syndrome and Computational biology. His Pneumonia study also includes

  • 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak, which have a strong connection to Global health, Viral transmission and Coronavirus Infections,
  • Viral shedding which intersects with area such as Respiratory tract infections, Vomiting, Nausea and Upper respiratory tract infection. The concepts of his Hendra Virus study are interwoven with issues in Flying fox and Pteropus.
