Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Immune system
  • Cytokine

His primary areas of investigation include Immunology, Microglia, Cytokine, Internal medicine and Tumor necrosis factor alpha. The study incorporates disciplines such as Receptor, Signal transduction and Central nervous system in addition to Immunology. His Microglia research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Neuroscience, Molecular biology, Neuroinflammation, Cell biology and Macrophage.

His work carried out in the field of Cell biology brings together such families of science as Nitric oxide, Astrocyte and Neuron. The concepts of his Cytokine study are interwoven with issues in Proinflammatory cytokine, Inflammation and Opioid. His work deals with themes such as Endocrinology and Antibody, which intersect with Internal medicine.

His most cited work include:

  • Activated microglia mediate neuronal cell injury via a nitric oxide mechanism. (1011 citations)
  • Activated microglia mediate neuronal cell injury via a nitric oxide mechanism. (1011 citations)
  • Role of Microglia in Central Nervous System Infections (500 citations)

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

Phillip K. Peterson mainly focuses on Immunology, Microglia, Microbiology, Internal medicine and Cytokine. His research integrates issues of Chronic fatigue syndrome and Receptor, Opiate in his study of Immunology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Central nervous system, Neuroglia, Chemokine, Cell biology and Pharmacology in addition to Microglia.

Phillip K. Peterson works mostly in the field of Cell biology, limiting it down to topics relating to Nitric oxide and, in certain cases, Biochemistry and Neurotoxicity. As a part of the same scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Internal medicine, focusing on Endocrinology and, on occasion, Peripheral blood mononuclear cell. His Cytokine research focuses on Tumor necrosis factor alpha and how it relates to Macrophage.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (51.26%)
  • Microglia (28.52%)
  • Microbiology (26.35%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2002-2020)?

  • Immunology (51.26%)
  • Microglia (28.52%)
  • Chemokine (7.94%)

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

Phillip K. Peterson mostly deals with Immunology, Microglia, Chemokine, Pharmacology and Cell biology. His Immunology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Morphine and Tuberculosis, Mycobacterium tuberculosis. His studies deal with areas such as Central nervous system, Neuroglia, Neuroscience, Apoptosis and Immune system as well as Microglia.

His Chemokine research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Proinflammatory cytokine, Endocrinology and Cytokine. Phillip K. Peterson has researched Pharmacology in several fields, including In vitro, Antagonist, Cannabinoid receptor, Long-term potentiation and Opiate. His study in the field of p38 mitogen-activated protein kinases and Signal transduction also crosses realms of Bruton's tyrosine kinase and Cyclic ADP-ribose.

Between 2002 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Role of Microglia in Central Nervous System Infections (500 citations)
  • Central Nervous System Tuberculosis: Pathogenesis and Clinical Aspects (389 citations)
  • Synthetic cannabinoid WIN55,212‐2 inhibits generation of inflammatory mediators by IL‐1β‐stimulated human astrocytes (181 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Immune system
  • Cytokine

His main research concerns Immunology, Microglia, Chemokine, Proinflammatory cytokine and Cytokine. His research brings together the fields of Central nervous system and Immunology. His Microglia study combines topics in areas such as Neuroinflammation, Neuroglia, Neuroscience and Immune system.

His research in Proinflammatory cytokine tackles topics such as Tumor necrosis factor alpha which are related to areas like Viral replication and Flavivirus. He has included themes like Receptor and Cell biology in his Cytokine study. His Cell biology research includes themes of Sigma-1 receptor and Stimulation.
