Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Virus
  • Immune system
  • Gene

His main research concerns Immunology, Cytotoxic T cell, Virology, CD8 and T cell. The study incorporates disciplines such as Epitope, T lymphocyte, Antigen and Molecular biology in addition to Cytotoxic T cell. His research in Virology intersects with topics in CTL* and Immunodominance.

While the research belongs to areas of CD8, Peter C. Doherty spends his time largely on the problem of Influenza virus nucleoprotein, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Clone. T-cell receptor and Antigen-presenting cell are among the areas of T cell where the researcher is concentrating his efforts. His research investigates the connection between Virus and topics such as Immunity that intersect with problems in Immunotherapy.

His most cited work include:

  • Restriction of in vitro T cell-mediated cytotoxicity in lymphocytic choriomeningitis within a syngeneic or semiallogeneic system. (1677 citations)
  • MHC-restricted cytotoxic T cells: studies on the biological role of polymorphic major transplantation antigens determining T-cell restriction-specificity, function, and responsiveness. (1614 citations)
  • Lack of IL-4-induced Th2 response and IgE class switching in mice with disrupted Stat6 gene. (1192 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Immunology, Cytotoxic T cell, Virology, Virus and CD8. His Cytotoxic T cell research includes themes of Epitope, Antigen, T cell and Molecular biology. Peter C. Doherty interconnects Antigen presentation and Antigen-presenting cell in the investigation of issues within Antigen.

He has researched Virology in several fields, including Antibody and Immunodominance. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Vaccinia and Lymphocyte. His CD8 research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Adoptive cell transfer and T lymphocyte.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (68.52%)
  • Cytotoxic T cell (65.30%)
  • Virology (60.18%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2021)?

  • Immunology (68.52%)
  • Cytotoxic T cell (65.30%)
  • Virology (60.18%)

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

Immunology, Cytotoxic T cell, Virology, CD8 and Influenza A virus are his primary areas of study. His work carried out in the field of Cytotoxic T cell brings together such families of science as Molecular biology and Human leukocyte antigen, Antigen. His study in Antigen is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Adoptive cell transfer and Cell biology.

Peter C. Doherty has included themes like Epitope and Major histocompatibility complex in his Virology study. His CD8 study incorporates themes from T cell, T-cell receptor and CD40. He has researched Influenza A virus in several fields, including Transmission and Antibody.

Between 2011 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • THE Pan-STARRS1 PHOTOMETRIC SYSTEM (723 citations)
  • Receptor interacting protein kinase 2-mediated mitophagy regulates inflammasome activation during virus infection (229 citations)
  • Receptor interacting protein kinase 2-mediated mitophagy regulates inflammasome activation during virus infection (229 citations)

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

  • Virus
  • Immune system
  • Gene

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Immunology, Cytotoxic T cell, Influenza A virus, CD8 and T cell. The Cytotoxic T cell study combines topics in areas such as Immune system, Immunity, Antigen and T-cell receptor. As part of the same scientific family, he usually focuses on T-cell receptor, concentrating on Avidity and intersecting with Major histocompatibility complex and Human cytomegalovirus.

Peter C. Doherty is researching Influenza A virus as part of the investigation of Virology and Virus. His Virology research incorporates elements of Respiratory function and Cell culture. His CD8 study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Priming and Antibody.
