Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Immune system
  • Internal medicine
  • Gene

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Immunology, Transplantation, Immune system, T cell and CD8. Many of his studies involve connections with topics such as Allograft rejection and Immunology. His study looks at the relationship between Transplantation and topics such as Kidney, which overlap with Urology and Human leukocyte antigen.

His study in T cell is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Decay-accelerating factor, Complement system, Molecular biology and Cell biology. His study focuses on the intersection of Decay-accelerating factor and fields such as Programmed cell death with connections in the field of Antigen. His CD8 research includes themes of Adoptive cell transfer, Messenger RNA and Pathology.

His most cited work include:

  • Preparation of PCR-quality mouse genomic DNA with hot sodium hydroxide and tris (HotSHOT) (1039 citations)
  • Immunology of COVID-19: Current State of the Science. (626 citations)
  • Locally Produced Complement Fragments C5a and C3a Provide Both Costimulatory and Survival Signals to Naive CD4+ T Cells (421 citations)

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

His main research concerns Immunology, T cell, Transplantation, Immune system and Antigen. His research in ELISPOT, CD8, Cytokine, Antibody and IL-2 receptor are components of Immunology. His CD8 research integrates issues from Adoptive cell transfer, CD40 and Effector.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Decay-accelerating factor, Complement system, Acquired immune system and Cell biology. Within one scientific family, Peter S. Heeger focuses on topics pertaining to Kidney under Transplantation, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Urology. Peter S. Heeger has included themes like Molecular biology and Transplant rejection in his Antigen study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (80.99%)
  • T cell (42.61%)
  • Transplantation (38.03%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Immunology (80.99%)
  • Internal medicine (14.79%)
  • Transplantation (38.03%)

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

Immunology, Internal medicine, Transplantation, Immune system and T cell are his primary areas of study. His Immunology study incorporates themes from Kidney transplant and Kidney transplantation. His work deals with themes such as Oncology and Cardiology, which intersect with Internal medicine.

His Transplantation study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Randomized controlled trial, Immune tolerance, Intensive care medicine, Single Center and Interleukin 10. His work is dedicated to discovering how Immune system, Receptor are connected with Downregulation and upregulation and Kidney and other disciplines. His T cell research incorporates elements of Cellular differentiation and Cell biology.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Immunology of COVID-19: Current State of the Science. (626 citations)
  • Molecules Great and Small: The Complement System (133 citations)
  • Adverse Outcomes of Tacrolimus Withdrawal in Immune–Quiescent Kidney Transplant Recipients (121 citations)

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

  • Immune system
  • Internal medicine
  • Gene

His primary areas of investigation include Immunology, Immune system, Internal medicine, T cell and Kidney transplantation. His study on Immunology is mostly dedicated to connecting different topics, such as Kidney. His study in the fields of Acquired immune system, Interleukin 10 and DC-SIGN under the domain of Immune system overlaps with other disciplines such as Macrophage colony-stimulating factor.

His Internal medicine study also includes

  • Oncology together with Transplantation,
  • Gastroenterology and related Vitamin D and neurology, Dialysis and Pediatrics. He has researched T cell in several fields, including Cancer research, Downregulation and upregulation, Autocrine signalling and C3a receptor. His Kidney transplantation research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Diabetes mellitus, Interstitial fibrosis, Toxicity and Complement.
