Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Bacteria

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Microbiology, Paracoccidioides brasiliensis, Paracoccidioidomycosis, Bacterial adhesin and Virulence. Her Microbiology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Biofilm, Extracellular matrix and Virology. Paracoccidioides is the focus of her Paracoccidioides brasiliensis research.

Her Paracoccidioidomycosis study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Immune system, Cytokine secretion, Cytokine, Antigen and Peripheral blood mononuclear cell. Maria José Soares Mendes-Giannini interconnects Laminin, Protein subcellular localization prediction, Subcellular localization and Fungal protein in the investigation of issues within Bacterial adhesin. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Amphotericin B, Corpus albicans, Fluconazole, Caspofungin and Candida krusei.

Her most cited work include:

  • Glyceraldehyde-3-Phosphate Dehydrogenase of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis Is a Cell Surface Protein Involved in Fungal Adhesion to Extracellular Matrix Proteins and Interaction with Cells (161 citations)
  • Antifungal Therapy: New Advances in the Understanding and Treatment of Mycosis. (151 citations)
  • Imbalance of IL-2, IFN-gamma and IL-10 secretion in the immunosuppression associated with human paracoccidioidomycosis. (147 citations)

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

Microbiology, Paracoccidioides brasiliensis, Paracoccidioidomycosis, Paracoccidioides and Immunology are her primary areas of study. Her study in Microbiology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Bacterial adhesin, Virulence and Biofilm. Maria José Soares Mendes-Giannini usually deals with Virulence and limits it to topics linked to Pathogen and Host.

The Biofilm study which covers In vitro that intersects with In vivo and Toxicity. Her studies deal with areas such as Apoptosis, Molecular biology, Extracellular matrix, Cell biology and Fungal protein as well as Paracoccidioides brasiliensis. Her Paracoccidioidomycosis research incorporates themes from T cell, Immunoglobulin G, Immune system, Antigen and Antibody.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Microbiology (54.49%)
  • Paracoccidioides brasiliensis (35.39%)
  • Paracoccidioidomycosis (27.53%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Microbiology (54.49%)
  • Biofilm (14.61%)
  • Paracoccidioides (20.22%)

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

Her primary scientific interests are in Microbiology, Biofilm, Paracoccidioides, Virulence and Paracoccidioides brasiliensis. Her Microbiology study focuses on Candida albicans in particular. Her Biofilm study combines topics in areas such as Yeast, Corpus albicans, Trichophyton rubrum and Dermatophyte.

The Virulence study combines topics in areas such as Adhesion and Gene expression. She combines subjects such as Immune system and Paracoccidioidomycosis with her study of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis. The various areas that Maria José Soares Mendes-Giannini examines in her Bacterial adhesin study include Heat shock protein and Antibody.

Between 2017 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Candida auris: Epidemiology, risk factors, virulence, resistance, and therapeutic options (31 citations)
  • Identification of Off-Patent Compounds That Present Antifungal Activity Against the Emerging Fungal Pathogen Candida auris (24 citations)
  • Influence of Eugenia uniflora Extract on Adhesion to Human Buccal Epithelial Cells, Biofilm Formation, and Cell Surface Hydrophobicity of Candida spp. from the Oral Cavity of Kidney Transplant Recipients. (11 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Bacteria

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Microbiology, Candida albicans, Paracoccidioides, Virulence and Paracoccidioides brasiliensis. Her Microbiology research includes themes of Outbreak and Drug repositioning. Her Candida albicans study incorporates themes from Membrane, Biological membrane, Antibiotics and Amphotericin B.

Her Paracoccidioides research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Galleria mellonella and Dimorphic fungus. Her Virulence research includes elements of Pathogen, Epidemiology and Intensive care medicine. Her research integrates issues of Innate immune system, Immune system, Caenorhabditis elegans and Paracoccidioidomycosis in her study of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis.
