Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Immune system
  • Gene
  • Antibody

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Virology, Epitope, Trypanosoma cruzi, CD8 and Cytotoxic T cell. Mauricio M. Rodrigues interconnects T cell, Immunology, Immune system, Immunity and Antibody in the investigation of issues within Virology. His work on Circumsporozoite protein as part of general Epitope research is frequently linked to Plasmodium yoelii, bridging the gap between disciplines.

Mauricio M. Rodrigues works mostly in the field of Trypanosoma cruzi, limiting it down to concerns involving Chagas disease and, occasionally, Parasitemia, Spleen, Caspase 1, Inflammasome and Proinflammatory cytokine. In his study, DNA vaccination is inextricably linked to Priming, which falls within the broad field of CD8. His research integrates issues of Molecular biology and Major histocompatibility complex in his study of Cytotoxic T cell.

His most cited work include:

  • Quantification of antigen specific CD8+ T cells using an ELISPOT assay (361 citations)
  • Priming with recombinant influenza virus followed by administration of recombinant vaccinia virus induces CD8+ T-cell-mediated protective immunity against malaria (238 citations)
  • On the Cytoadhesion of Plasmodium vivax–Infected Erythrocytes (217 citations)

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

Virology, Antigen, Immune system, Epitope and Immunology are his primary areas of study. His studies deal with areas such as Recombinant DNA, CD8, Plasmodium vivax, Trypanosoma cruzi and Antibody as well as Virology. His study looks at the relationship between Trypanosoma cruzi and topics such as Chagas disease, which overlap with Trypanosomiasis.

Mauricio M. Rodrigues focuses mostly in the field of Antigen, narrowing it down to matters related to Apical membrane antigen 1 and, in some cases, Ectodomain. His Immune system research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Microbiology and Vaccination. His studies in Epitope integrate themes in fields like Cytotoxic T cell, Molecular biology and Virus.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Virology (64.97%)
  • Antigen (38.22%)
  • Immune system (34.39%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2018)?

  • Virology (64.97%)
  • Immunology (33.12%)
  • Antigen (38.22%)

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

His main research concerns Virology, Immunology, Antigen, Antibody and Immune system. His research on Virology focuses in particular on Vaccination. Mauricio M. Rodrigues is involved in the study of Antigen that focuses on Epitope in particular.

The various areas that Mauricio M. Rodrigues examines in his Epitope study include Molecular biology and T cell. Innate immune system is closely connected to Proinflammatory cytokine in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Immune system. His CD8 research includes themes of Cytotoxic T cell and Lymphocyte.

Between 2014 and 2018, his most popular works were:

  • A Human Type 5 Adenovirus-Based Trypanosoma cruzi Therapeutic Vaccine Re-programs Immune Response and Reverses Chronic Cardiomyopathy (48 citations)
  • Prime-boost vaccination with recombinant protein and adenovirus-vector expressing Plasmodium vivax circumsporozoite protein (CSP) partially protects mice against Pb/Pv sporozoite challenge (17 citations)
  • The presence of T cell epitopes is important for induction of antibody responses against antigens directed to DEC205+ dendritic cells (16 citations)

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

  • Immune system
  • Gene
  • Antibody

Mauricio M. Rodrigues spends much of his time researching Antibody, Antigen, Epitope, Virology and Immunology. His study looks at the relationship between Antibody and fields such as Immune system, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. Epitope is often connected to Molecular biology in his work.

His Virology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Perforin, Circumsporozoite protein and Plasmodium vivax. His Plasmodium vivax research incorporates themes from Viral vector, Adenoviridae, Parasitemia and Plasmodium berghei. Much of his study explores Immunology relationship to Blockade.
