Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Bacteria
  • Gene

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Rickettsia, Virology, Microbiology, Genetics and Spotted fever. His Rickettsia study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Ixodidae, Tick and Rickettsiales. Pierre-Edouard Fournier focuses mostly in the field of Virology, narrowing it down to matters related to Polymerase chain reaction and, in some cases, Serology and Genotype.

He has researched Microbiology in several fields, including Pathogenic bacteria, Bacteria, Comparative genomics and Identification. As a part of the same scientific study, Pierre-Edouard Fournier usually deals with the Spotted fever, concentrating on Zoology and frequently concerns with Rocky Mountain spotted fever. His research investigates the connection between Rickettsiosis and topics such as Q fever that intersect with problems in Internal medicine.

His most cited work include:

  • Ongoing Revolution in Bacteriology: Routine Identification of Bacteria by Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry (1393 citations)
  • Update on Tick-Borne Rickettsioses around the World: a Geographic Approach (683 citations)
  • The Epidemiology and Control of Acinetobacter baumannii in Health Care Facilities (656 citations)

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

Pierre-Edouard Fournier spends much of his time researching Microbiology, Culturomics, Genome, Genetics and Gene. His Microbiology research includes themes of 16S ribosomal RNA, Bacteria, Virology, Stool sample and Rickettsia. His Virology course of study focuses on Serology and Endocarditis.

His studies in Culturomics integrate themes in fields like Gut flora, Human gut, Human microbiome, Genus and Taxonomy. His study in Whole genome sequencing and Strain are all subfields of Genome. His primary area of study in Genetics is in the field of Plasmid.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Microbiology (39.80%)
  • Culturomics (29.02%)
  • Genome (23.57%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Microbiology (39.80%)
  • Culturomics (29.02%)
  • Bacteria (14.32%)

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

His primary areas of study are Microbiology, Culturomics, Bacteria, Genome and 16S ribosomal RNA. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Genome size, Anaerobic bacteria, Urine, Genus and Human gut. His research in Culturomics tackles topics such as Gut flora which are related to areas like Firmicutes.

His study in Genome is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 and Virology. The various areas that Pierre-Edouard Fournier examines in his Virology study include Serology and Coronavirus disease 2019. His 16S ribosomal RNA research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Nucleic acid sequence and Phylogenetic tree.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Clinical and microbiological effect of a combination of hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin in 80 COVID-19 patients with at least a six-day follow up: A pilot observational study. (422 citations)
  • Early treatment of COVID-19 patients with hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin: A retrospective analysis of 1061 cases in Marseille, France. (242 citations)
  • Outcomes of 3,737 COVID-19 patients treated with hydroxychloroquine/azithromycin and other regimens in Marseille, France: A retrospective analysis. (127 citations)

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

  • Bacteria
  • Internal medicine
  • Gene

His scientific interests lie mostly in Genome, Microbiology, Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, Whole genome sequencing and Culturomics. His work deals with themes such as Evolutionary biology, Obligate and Virology, which intersect with Genome. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Evolutionary biology, Genus and Rickettsia is strongly linked to Anaplasma.

His work on Outbreak, Q fever and Coxiella burnetii as part of his general Virology study is frequently connected to Shell Vial Culture, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. Pierre-Edouard Fournier combines subjects such as Multilocus sequence typing and Bacteria with his study of Microbiology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Surgery, 16S ribosomal RNA, Human microbiome and Stool specimen in addition to Culturomics.
