Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Internal medicine

His scientific interests lie mostly in Immunology, Toxoplasma gondii, Virology, Microsporidia and Trypanosoma cruzi. His Immunology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Disease and Myocarditis. His study in Toxoplasma gondii is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Cyst, Toxoplasmosis, Astrocyte, Antigen and Gene.

His research integrates issues of Transmission, Pregnancy, Serology and Encephalitis in his study of Toxoplasmosis. Louis M. Weiss focuses mostly in the field of Microsporidia, narrowing it down to matters related to Phylogenetics and, in some cases, Ribosomal RNA and Phylogenetic tree. His studies in Trypanosoma cruzi integrate themes in fields like Adipose tissue and Cardiomyopathy.

His most cited work include:

  • Toxoplasma gondii: from animals to humans (2373 citations)
  • Toxoplasmosis: a history of clinical observations (500 citations)
  • The microsporidia and microsporidiosis (489 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Immunology, Toxoplasma gondii, Virology, Microsporidia and Trypanosoma cruzi. His work on Immunology is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Disease. His Toxoplasma gondii study also includes

  • Sporoplasm most often made with reference to Cell biology,
  • Toxoplasmosis that intertwine with fields like Encephalitis.

His research on Virology often connects related areas such as Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. In his study, Phylogenetic tree is strongly linked to Phylogenetics, which falls under the umbrella field of Microsporidia. His study focuses on the intersection of Trypanosoma cruzi and fields such as Chagas disease with connections in the field of Heart disease and Internal medicine.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (26.01%)
  • Toxoplasma gondii (20.05%)
  • Virology (17.66%)

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

  • Toxoplasma gondii (20.05%)
  • Immunology (26.01%)
  • Cell biology (13.84%)

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

His main research concerns Toxoplasma gondii, Immunology, Cell biology, Trypanosoma cruzi and Intracellular parasite. His Toxoplasma gondii research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Cyst, Toxoplasmosis, Microbiology, Vacuole and Effector. The various areas that he examines in his Microbiology study include Cell culture, Virology and Virulence.

His Immunology study combines topics in areas such as Asymptomatic and Disease. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Proteome, Polar tube, Proteomics and Sporoplasm. He interconnects Cardiomyopathy, Chagas disease and Immune system in the investigation of issues within Trypanosoma cruzi.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Microsporidia – Emergent Pathogens in the Global Food Chain (115 citations)
  • Microsporidia: Obligate Intracellular Pathogens Within the Fungal Kingdom (73 citations)
  • Continuous culture of Cryptosporidium parvum using hollow fiber technology (68 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Internal medicine

His primary areas of investigation include Toxoplasma gondii, Cell biology, Microbiology, Immunology and Intracellular parasite. His Toxoplasma gondii research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Cyst, Chronic infection, Toxoplasmosis and Gene. His Cell biology research includes elements of Proteome, Glycosylation, Proteomics, Mutant and Cell division.

His studies deal with areas such as Trypanosoma cruzi, Chagas disease, Virology and Virulence as well as Microbiology. His work carried out in the field of Virology brings together such families of science as Pyrimethamine and Cell culture, Growth inhibition. His study ties his expertise on Microsporidia together with the subject of Immunology.
