What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Immune system

Mary Carrington mainly focuses on Immunology, Human leukocyte antigen, Genetics, Virology and Allele. Her biological study deals with issues like Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, which deal with fields such as Disease. Mary Carrington interconnects Receptor, Innate immune system and Major histocompatibility complex in the investigation of issues within Human leukocyte antigen.

Her study in Gene, Haplotype, Genotype, Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Locus falls under the purview of Genetics. Her work in Virology covers topics such as Cytotoxic T cell which are related to areas like T cell. The concepts of her Allele study are interwoven with issues in Epitope, DNA microarray, Genome-wide association study and Polymerase chain reaction.

Her most cited work include:

  • Genetic Restriction of HIV-1 Infection and Progression to AIDS by a Deletion Allele of the CKR5 Structural Gene (2328 citations)
  • Interleukin-1 polymorphisms associated with increased risk of gastric cancer (2054 citations)
  • Genetic variation in IL28B and spontaneous clearance of hepatitis C virus (1851 citations)

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

Mary Carrington spends much of her time researching Immunology, Human leukocyte antigen, Genetics, Virology and Allele. Her work deals with themes such as Cytotoxic T cell and Receptor, which intersect with Immunology. Her research investigates the connection between Receptor and topics such as Molecular biology that intersect with problems in Regulation of gene expression.

In her research, Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome is intimately related to Genotype, which falls under the overarching field of Human leukocyte antigen. Her Virology study frequently draws connections to other fields, such as T cell. Her research on Allele often connects related topics like Genome-wide association study.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (67.59%)
  • Human leukocyte antigen (65.81%)
  • Genetics (43.68%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Human leukocyte antigen (65.81%)
  • Immunology (67.59%)
  • Receptor (16.80%)

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

Her main research concerns Human leukocyte antigen, Immunology, Receptor, Allele and Virology. Human leukocyte antigen is a subfield of Genetics that Mary Carrington investigates. Her Receptor research incorporates themes from Cell, HLA-C, Molecular biology, KIR2DL1 and Antibody.

Her research related to Linkage disequilibrium and Heterozygote advantage might be considered part of Allele. Her work deals with themes such as Downregulation and upregulation and CTL*, which intersect with Virology. The Genotype study combines topics in areas such as Odds ratio and Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome.

Between 2015 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Open conformers of HLA-F are high-affinity ligands of the activating NK-cell receptor KIR3DS1 (125 citations)
  • Open conformers of HLA-F are high-affinity ligands of the activating NK-cell receptor KIR3DS1 (125 citations)
  • Unique human immune signature of Ebola virus disease in Guinea. (122 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Immune system

Mary Carrington mostly deals with Human leukocyte antigen, Immunology, Genetics, Receptor and Allele. Her study looks at the relationship between Human leukocyte antigen and fields such as Cytotoxicity, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. Her Immunology research includes themes of Cytotoxic T cell and Virology.

She works mostly in the field of Genetics, limiting it down to concerns involving Plasma protein binding and, occasionally, Drug, Nevirapine and Peptide binding. Mary Carrington interconnects Killer-cell immunoglobulin-like receptor, Cell, CD8 and Molecular biology in the investigation of issues within Receptor. Her Allele study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Promoter and Expression quantitative trait loci.
