Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Law

Marleen Boelaert spends much of her time researching Visceral leishmaniasis, Leishmaniasis, Internal medicine, Immunology and Veterinary medicine. Marleen Boelaert studies Visceral leishmaniasis, namely Leishmania donovani. In the field of Leishmaniasis, her study on Miltefosine and Sodium stibogluconate overlaps with subjects such as Amphotericin B and Indian subcontinent.

Marleen Boelaert combines subjects such as Gastroenterology, Surgery and Pharmacology with her study of Internal medicine. Her Immunology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Prospective cohort study, Asymptomatic and Pediatrics. Her Veterinary medicine research integrates issues from Epidemiology, Randomized controlled trial, Mass screening, Poverty and Socioeconomics.

Her most cited work include:

  • Visceral leishmaniasis: what are the needs for diagnosis, treatment and control? (1139 citations)
  • Visceral leishmaniasis : current status of control, diagnosis, and treatment, and a proposed research and development agenda (636 citations)
  • Spread of Vector-borne Diseases and Neglect of Leishmaniasis, Europe (285 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Visceral leishmaniasis, Leishmaniasis, Immunology, Internal medicine and Leishmania donovani. Her Visceral leishmaniasis study incorporates themes from Veterinary medicine, Direct agglutination test, Surgery and Environmental health. Her Surgery study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Sodium stibogluconate and Pharmacotherapy.

Her Leishmaniasis study combines topics in areas such as Asymptomatic, Epidemiology and Incidence. Her Incidence research focuses on subjects like Public health, which are linked to Socioeconomics. Marleen Boelaert combines topics linked to Leishmania with her work on Immunology.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Visceral leishmaniasis (39.18%)
  • Leishmaniasis (26.65%)
  • Immunology (16.40%)

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

  • Visceral leishmaniasis (39.18%)
  • Leishmaniasis (26.65%)
  • Public health (10.93%)

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

Marleen Boelaert focuses on Visceral leishmaniasis, Leishmaniasis, Public health, African trypanosomiasis and Internal medicine. Her Visceral leishmaniasis research incorporates elements of Demography, Incidence and Disease. Her Leishmaniasis research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Xenodiagnosis, Serology and Leishmania.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Sustainability, Process and Intensive care medicine in addition to Public health. Her study in the field of Trypanosoma brucei gambiense also crosses realms of Democracy. Her work in Internal medicine tackles topics such as Post-kala-azar dermal leishmaniasis which are related to areas like Multivariate analysis.

Between 2016 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Do cryptic reservoirs threaten gambiense-sleeping sickness elimination? (59 citations)
  • Why miltefosine—a life-saving drug for leishmaniasis—is unavailable to people who need it the most (49 citations)
  • Eliminating visceral leishmaniasis in South Asia: the road ahead. (37 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Law

Her primary scientific interests are in Visceral leishmaniasis, Leishmaniasis, Public health, Disease and Epidemiology. Her research integrates issues of Internal medicine, Asymptomatic and Demography in her study of Visceral leishmaniasis. Her work on Leishmania donovani as part of general Leishmaniasis study is frequently linked to Molecular epidemiology, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science.

Her studies in Public health integrate themes in fields like Psychosocial, Sustainability, Socioeconomics and Cutaneous leishmaniasis. Her Disease research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Poverty and Surgery. Marleen Boelaert interconnects Environmental health, Buruli ulcer, Gold standard, African trypanosomiasis and Histopathology in the investigation of issues within Epidemiology.
