Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Cancer
  • Immune system
  • Gene

Her primary areas of study are Immunology, Chemokine, Cancer, Inflammation and Angiogenesis. Her studies in Immunology integrate themes in fields like Tumor progression, Cancer research and Macrophage. In the subject of general Cancer research, her work in Myeloid is often linked to Population, thereby combining diverse domains of study.

Her Chemokine research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Proinflammatory cytokine, Cytokine and Tumor necrosis factor alpha. She studies Cancer, namely Metastasis. As part of one scientific family, Paola Allavena deals mainly with the area of Inflammation, narrowing it down to issues related to the Immune system, and often Mannose receptor.

Her most cited work include:

  • Cancer-related inflammation. (6651 citations)
  • The chemokine system in diverse forms of macrophage activation and polarization. (4151 citations)
  • Macrophage polarization: tumor-associated macrophages as a paradigm for polarized M2 mononuclear phagocytes (3520 citations)

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

Paola Allavena spends much of her time researching Immunology, Cancer research, Cell biology, Chemokine and Inflammation. As part of her studies on Immunology, she frequently links adjacent subjects like Tumor progression. Her research integrates issues of Cancer cell, Internal medicine, Monocyte and Ovarian cancer in her study of Cancer research.

Her study on Cell biology also encompasses disciplines like

  • Dendritic cell and related CD40,
  • Interleukin 12 which intersects with area such as Natural killer cell. Her Chemokine study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Proinflammatory cytokine and Interleukin 8. Her research in Inflammation tackles topics such as Cancer which are related to areas like Angiogenesis and Stroma.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (39.78%)
  • Cancer research (30.29%)
  • Cell biology (24.09%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2012-2021)?

  • Cancer research (30.29%)
  • Internal medicine (13.50%)
  • Immunology (39.78%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Cancer research, Internal medicine, Immunology, Oncology and Cancer. Her work deals with themes such as Chemokine, Immune system and Pancreatic cancer, which intersect with Cancer research. Her Chemokine research integrates issues from Interleukin 8 and Tumor growth.

Her studies in Inflammation and Monocyte are all subfields of Immunology research. The various areas that Paola Allavena examines in her Inflammation study include Tumor progression, Innate immune system, Antigens present and Macrophage polarization. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Phenotype and Mucosal immunity.

Between 2012 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Role of Macrophage Targeting in the Antitumor Activity of Trabectedin (482 citations)
  • Tumor-associated macrophages: functional diversity, clinical significance, and open questions (303 citations)
  • Macrophage polarization in pathology. (257 citations)

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

  • Cancer
  • Immune system
  • Gene

Her primary areas of investigation include Cancer research, Immunology, Inflammation, Immune system and Tumor microenvironment. The concepts of her Cancer research study are interwoven with issues in Cancer cell, Tumor progression, Cytotoxic T cell and Pharmacology. Her specific area of interest is Immunology, where Paola Allavena studies Monocyte.

Her Inflammation research incorporates elements of Innate immune system, Colorectal cancer and Macrophage polarization. Her Macrophage polarization research includes elements of Cancer stem cell and Metastasis, Tumor-associated macrophage. Her research in Immune system intersects with topics in Immunohistochemistry, Lymphatic system, Pathology and Adenocarcinoma.
