Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Pathology
  • Disease

Maria Vang Johansen spends much of her time researching Schistosoma japonicum, Trematoda, Feces, Veterinary medicine and Immunology. Her study in Schistosoma japonicum is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Genetics and Virology. Her Trematoda study results in a more complete grasp of Helminths.

Her Feces research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Opisthorchis viverrini and Opisthorchiasis. Her studies in Veterinary medicine integrate themes in fields like Taenia solium and Public health. The Immunology study combines topics in areas such as Large intestine and Opinion piece.

Her most cited work include:

  • Diagnostic dilemmas in helminthology: what tools to use and when? (278 citations)
  • Towards improved diagnosis of zoonotic trematode infections in Southeast Asia (90 citations)
  • Gender-associated gene expression in two related strains of Schistosoma japonicum. (70 citations)

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

Veterinary medicine, Taenia solium, Schistosoma japonicum, Cysticercosis and Immunology are her primary areas of study. Her Veterinary medicine research integrates issues from Helminths, Feces, Animal science and Praziquantel. Her work in Taenia solium tackles topics such as Neurocysticercosis which are related to areas like Histopathology and Disease.

Maria Vang Johansen combines subjects such as Trematoda, Pathology and Virology with her study of Schistosoma japonicum. Her work in Cysticercosis covers topics such as Environmental health which are related to areas like One Health. Her Immunology research includes themes of Fecundity and Physiology.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Veterinary medicine (41.72%)
  • Taenia solium (32.52%)
  • Schistosoma japonicum (26.38%)

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

  • Taenia solium (32.52%)
  • Veterinary medicine (41.72%)
  • Cysticercosis (23.31%)

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

Maria Vang Johansen focuses on Taenia solium, Veterinary medicine, Cysticercosis, Neurocysticercosis and Environmental health. Her Taenia solium study incorporates themes from Mass drug administration, Health education and Cross-sectional study. Her Veterinary medicine study combines topics in areas such as Toxoplasma gondii, Feces, Trichuris suis and Praziquantel.

Her Praziquantel research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Trematoda and Liver fluke. Her Cysticercosis research includes elements of Transmission, Taenia and Public health. Maria Vang Johansen interconnects Burden of disease, Disease, Anatomy and Histopathology in the investigation of issues within Neurocysticercosis.

Between 2013 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Taenia solium taeniosis/cysticercosis and the co-distribution with schistosomiasis in Africa. (34 citations)
  • Control of Taenia solium taeniasis/cysticercosis: The best way forward for sub-Saharan Africa? (33 citations)
  • The societal cost of Taenia solium cysticercosis in Tanzania (31 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Pathology
  • Disease

Her main research concerns Taenia solium, Veterinary medicine, Cysticercosis, Neurocysticercosis and Taeniasis. The various areas that Maria Vang Johansen examines in her Taenia solium study include Hormone, Internal medicine, Cortisol level and Immune system. She works mostly in the field of Veterinary medicine, limiting it down to concerns involving Mass drug administration and, occasionally, Praziquantel and Schistosomiasis.

Her work carried out in the field of Cysticercosis brings together such families of science as Transmission, Health education and Environmental health. Her research on Environmental health also deals with topics like

  • One Health together with Helminthiasis, Schistosoma mekongi, Opisthorchis, Intensive care medicine and Immunology,
  • Disease Eradication which is related to area like Vaccination. Maria Vang Johansen has included themes like Disease, Etiology and Public health in her Neurocysticercosis study.
