Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Genetics

His main research concerns Fatal familial insomnia, Virology, Pathology, Genotype and Disease. His Fatal familial insomnia research includes elements of Genetics, Mutation, PRNP, Degenerative disease and Methionine. The Virology study combines topics in areas such as Scrapie, PrPSc Proteins, Prion protein, Bovine spongiform encephalopathy and Gene isoform.

The concepts of his Pathology study are interwoven with issues in Thalamus and Electroencephalography. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Phenotype, Kuru and Allele. His Disease research incorporates elements of Amino acid, Cerebral cortex and Pathogenesis.

His most cited work include:

  • Classification of sporadic Creutzfeldt‐Jakob disease based on molecular and phenotypic analysis of 300 subjects (1101 citations)
  • Evidence for the conformation of the pathologic isoform of the prion protein enciphering and propagating prion diversity. (725 citations)
  • Molecular basis of phenotypic variability in sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. (711 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Pathology, Virology, Disease, Fatal familial insomnia and Molecular biology. His Virology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Phenotype, PrPSc Proteins, Genotype and Creutzfeldt-Jakob Syndrome, Prion protein. Pierluigi Gambetti is exploring Phenotype as part of his Gene and Genetics and Phenotype studies.

His Disease research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Transmission, Pediatrics and Pathogenesis. His Fatal familial insomnia research includes themes of Endocrinology, Atrophy and Thalamus. His Molecular biology research incorporates themes from Cell, Neurofilament and Epitope, Antibody, Monoclonal antibody.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Pathology (27.86%)
  • Virology (25.22%)
  • Disease (20.53%)

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

  • Virology (25.22%)
  • Disease (20.53%)
  • Pathology (27.86%)

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

Pierluigi Gambetti focuses on Virology, Disease, Pathology, Prion protein and Genetics. His study in Virology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Phenotype, Bank vole, Protein Misfolding Cyclic Amplification and Genetically modified mouse. His research integrates issues of Mutation, Cerebrospinal fluid and Transmission in his study of Disease.

His study explores the link between Pathology and topics such as Diffusion MRI that cross with problems in Abnormality, Clinical course, Mri scan, Antemortem Diagnosis and Pathological. He combines subjects such as Cell cycle and Biochemistry with his study of Prion protein. As part of his studies on Genotype, he often connects relevant subjects like Fatal familial insomnia.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Quantifying prion disease penetrance using large population control cohorts (264 citations)
  • Prions in the Urine of Patients with Variant Creutzfeldt–Jakob Disease (118 citations)
  • Bank Vole Prion Protein As an Apparently Universal Substrate for RT-QuIC-Based Detection and Discrimination of Prion Strains (105 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Genetics

Pierluigi Gambetti mainly focuses on Disease, Virology, Prion protein, Pathology and Scrapie. His studies in Disease integrate themes in fields like Genetics, Cerebrospinal fluid, Mutation, Transmission and Genotype. His Virology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Protein Misfolding Cyclic Amplification, Genetically modified mouse, In vivo and Bovine spongiform encephalopathy.

His Prion protein study incorporates themes from Cell cycle, Biochemistry and Cell biology. As a part of the same scientific study, Pierluigi Gambetti usually deals with the Pathology, concentrating on Phenotype and frequently concerns with Case-control study and Prospective cohort study. His work deals with themes such as PRNP and Fatal familial insomnia, which intersect with Exome sequencing.
