Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Immune system
  • Gene
  • Virus

His main research concerns Immunology, Virology, Immune system, Virus and Epitope. All of his Immunology and CD8, Human leukocyte antigen, Viral load, Interleukin 21 and Viral replication investigations are sub-components of the entire Immunology study. Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome is closely connected to Allele in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Human leukocyte antigen.

The various areas that Marcus Altfeld examines in his Virology study include Cytotoxic T cell, CTL* and T cell. Marcus Altfeld frequently studies issues relating to Antibody and Immune system. His Virus research includes themes of Mutation, Cellular immunity, Consensus sequence and Immunopathology.

His most cited work include:

  • PD-1 expression on HIV-specific T cells is associated with T-cell exhaustion and disease progression (2076 citations)
  • CD107a as a functional marker for the identification of natural killer cell activity (1006 citations)
  • Immune control of HIV-1 after early treatment of acute infection (922 citations)

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

Marcus Altfeld spends much of his time researching Immunology, Virology, Immune system, Cytotoxic T cell and Human leukocyte antigen. His Immunology study focuses mostly on CD8, Innate immune system, Viral load, Interleukin 21 and T cell. His T cell research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Antibody and Antigen.

His Virology research incorporates elements of Epitope, ELISPOT and CTL*. The concepts of his Immune system study are interwoven with issues in Viremia and Pathogenesis. Marcus Altfeld interconnects Receptor and Allele in the investigation of issues within Human leukocyte antigen.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (88.69%)
  • Virology (55.78%)
  • Immune system (39.59%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Immunology (88.69%)
  • Immune system (39.59%)
  • Receptor (15.94%)

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

Immunology, Immune system, Receptor, Cell and Virology are his primary areas of study. His Peripheral blood mononuclear cell research extends to the thematically linked field of Immunology. His study focuses on the intersection of Immune system and fields such as Cytotoxic T cell with connections in the field of CD8 and T cell.

His study in Receptor is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Cell culture, Natural killer cell, Cytotoxicity, Human leukocyte antigen and Cell biology. Marcus Altfeld combines subjects such as Epitope and Peptide with his study of Human leukocyte antigen. In the field of Virology, his study on Hepatitis C virus, Viral replication and Vaccination overlaps with subjects such as Antibody titer.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Systems Vaccinology Identifies an Early Innate Immune Signature as a Correlate of Antibody Responses to the Ebola Vaccine rVSV-ZEBOV (57 citations)
  • Human Leukocyte Antigen F Presents Peptides and Regulates Immunity through Interactions with NK Cell Receptors. (53 citations)
  • Sex-Based Differences in Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type 1 Reservoir Activity and Residual Immune Activation. (27 citations)

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

  • Immune system
  • Gene
  • Virus

His scientific interests lie mostly in Immunology, Immune system, Receptor, Cell biology and Natural killer cell. His study connects Sex characteristics and Immunology. His work on Immune system is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Virology.

His Receptor study combines topics in areas such as RNA, Human leukocyte antigen, Stimulation and Cytotoxicity. His Cell biology research integrates issues from Cell, Transcription factor and Virus. His research in Interleukin 21 tackles topics such as Peripheral blood mononuclear cell which are related to areas like Natural killer T cell, Viremia and Lymphokine-activated killer cell.
