Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Immune system
  • Gene
  • Virus

His primary areas of investigation include Virology, Immunology, Simian immunodeficiency virus, Virus and Immune system. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Antibody and Immunity. His Immunology research incorporates themes from Cytotoxic T cell and AIDS Vaccines.

His Cytotoxic T cell research is multidisciplinary, relying on both CD8, Major histocompatibility complex and Antigen. His Simian immunodeficiency virus research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Immunodeficiency, Viral Vaccine, Viral load and DNA vaccination. He works mostly in the field of Virus, limiting it down to topics relating to Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome and, in certain cases, Attenuated vaccine.

His most cited work include:

  • Control of Viremia in Simian Immunodeficiency Virus Infection by CD8+ Lymphocytes (2069 citations)
  • Replication-incompetent adenoviral vaccine vector elicits effective anti-immunodeficiency-virus immunity. (1147 citations)
  • A Whole-Genome Association Study of Major Determinants for Host Control of HIV-1 (1068 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Virology, Immunology, Simian immunodeficiency virus, Virus and Immune system. In his study, Major histocompatibility complex is strongly linked to Cytotoxic T cell, which falls under the umbrella field of Virology. His study in T lymphocyte, Vaccination, T cell, Antigen and Cellular immunity is done as part of Immunology.

His Simian immunodeficiency virus research focuses on Viral replication and how it relates to In vivo. Norman L. Letvin interconnects Vaccinia, Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome and Lymphocyte in the investigation of issues within Virus. His Immune system study typically links adjacent topics like Immunogen.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Virology (81.00%)
  • Immunology (68.67%)
  • Simian immunodeficiency virus (44.83%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2010-2021)?

  • Virology (81.00%)
  • Immunology (68.67%)
  • Simian immunodeficiency virus (44.83%)

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

His main research concerns Virology, Immunology, Simian immunodeficiency virus, Immune system and Virus. His study in Virology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Epitope, Antibody, Immunogenicity and CD8. His Immunology study incorporates themes from Cytotoxic T cell and Vaccinia.

While the research belongs to areas of Simian immunodeficiency virus, he spends his time largely on the problem of Immunity, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Immunization and Vaccine trial. The Immune system study combines topics in areas such as Mycobacterium bovis, Gp41, Clade and In vivo. His study looks at the intersection of Virus and topics like Pathogenesis with Mutation and Transmission.

Between 2010 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Vaccine Induction of Antibodies against a Structurally Heterogeneous Site of Immune Pressure within HIV-1 Envelope Protein Variable Regions 1 and 2 (326 citations)
  • Neutralizing antibodies to HIV-1 envelope protect more effectively in vivo than those to the CD4 receptor (175 citations)
  • Immune and Genetic Correlates of Vaccine Protection Against Mucosal Infection by SIV in Monkeys (168 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Immune system
  • Virus

His primary areas of study are Virology, Antibody, Immunology, Virus and Simian immunodeficiency virus. Norman L. Letvin has researched Virology in several fields, including Epitope, Gp41, Immune system, Immunogenicity and Monoclonal antibody. The concepts of his Antibody study are interwoven with issues in Acquired immune system and Vaccinia.

His study of Vaccination is a part of Immunology. His Virus research is mostly focused on the topic Viral replication. His research integrates issues of Cytotoxic T cell, Vaccine trial, Mucosal Infection and Pathogenesis in his study of Simian immunodeficiency virus.
