Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Enzyme

His main research concerns Leishmania, Phlebotomus, Psychodidae, Vector and Leishmaniasis. His Leishmania research incorporates elements of Immunology, Genetics, Saliva and Microbiology. Within one scientific family, Petr Volf focuses on topics pertaining to Midgut under Microbiology, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Kinetoplastida.

Petr Volf works mostly in the field of Phlebotomus, limiting it down to topics relating to Lutzomyia and, in certain cases, Host, as a part of the same area of interest. His research in Vector intersects with topics in Canine leishmaniasis and Virology. His Virology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Visceral leishmaniasis, Leishmania infantum and Leishmania major.

His most cited work include:

  • Leishmania development in sand flies: parasite-vector interactions overview (170 citations)
  • Establishment and Maintenance of Sand Fly Colonies (142 citations)
  • Outbreak of cutaneous leishmaniasis in northern Israel. (130 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Leishmania, Phlebotomus, Vector, Microbiology and Psychodidae. His Leishmania research incorporates themes from Leishmaniasis, Immunology and Saliva. Petr Volf has researched Phlebotomus in several fields, including Host, Lutzomyia and Cutaneous leishmaniasis.

His Vector study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Veterinary medicine, Visceral leishmaniasis and Parasitology. In his study, Gene is strongly linked to Leishmania mexicana, which falls under the umbrella field of Microbiology. The various areas that Petr Volf examines in his Psychodidae study include Zoology, Botany, Kinetoplastida and Sandfly.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Leishmania (41.02%)
  • Phlebotomus (28.91%)
  • Vector (28.12%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Leishmania (41.02%)
  • Microbiology (26.95%)
  • Vector (28.12%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Leishmania, Microbiology, Vector, Leishmania infantum and Phlebotomus. Petr Volf interconnects Mutant, Saliva and Cell biology in the investigation of issues within Leishmania. His research integrates issues of Leishmaniasis, Blood meal, Leishmania mexicana and Midgut in his study of Microbiology.

His research investigates the link between Vector and topics such as Antibody that cross with problems in Antigen and Parasitology. Petr Volf has included themes like Veterinary medicine and Psychodidae in his Leishmania infantum study. His Phlebotomus research includes elements of Zoology, Subgenus and Lutzomyia.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Genetic dissection of a Leishmania flagellar proteome demonstrates requirement for directional motility in sand fly infections (45 citations)
  • Repurposing isoxazoline veterinary drugs for control of vector-borne human diseases. (34 citations)
  • Leishmania flagellum attachment zone is critical for flagellar pocket shape, development in the sand fly, and pathogenicity in the host. (22 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Enzyme

His scientific interests lie mostly in Leishmania, Vector, Microbiology, Leishmania infantum and Zoology. His work carried out in the field of Vector brings together such families of science as Veterinary medicine, Phlebotomus, Serology and Visceral leishmaniasis. The Phlebotomus study combines topics in areas such as Cutaneous leishmaniasis and Leishmania tropica.

His studies deal with areas such as Leishmania mexicana, Amastigote, Dermis, Leishmania major and Midgut as well as Microbiology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Miltefosine, Antibody, Saliva and Virology in addition to Leishmania infantum. His Zoology study incorporates themes from Vertebrate, Psychodidae, Larva and Mass spectrometry.
