Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Immune system

His primary areas of study are Immunology, Internal medicine, Antimicrobial peptides, Inflammation and Asthma. His work carried out in the field of Immunology brings together such families of science as Epithelium, Respiratory epithelium and Lung. He has included themes like Gastroenterology and Endocrinology in his Internal medicine study.

His studies in Antimicrobial peptides integrate themes in fields like Defensin, Innate immune system and Cell biology. His studies deal with areas such as Mast cell, Molecular biology and Chemotaxis as well as Inflammation. He has researched Asthma in several fields, including Hypertonic saline, Inhalation, Methacholine and Surgery.

His most cited work include:

  • Human cathelicidin, hCAP-18, is processed to the antimicrobial peptide LL-37 by extracellular cleavage with proteinase 3. (708 citations)
  • An angiogenic role for the human peptide antibiotic LL-37/hCAP-18 (706 citations)
  • Innate immunity in the lung: how epithelial cells fight against respiratory pathogens (472 citations)

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

Pieter S. Hiemstra mainly investigates Immunology, Internal medicine, COPD, Inflammation and Asthma. His research integrates issues of Respiratory epithelium, Lung and Antimicrobial peptides in his study of Immunology. His Internal medicine study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Gastroenterology and Endocrinology.

His COPD research includes elements of Gene expression, Fluticasone propionate, Exacerbation, Pathology and Bronchoalveolar lavage. Pieter S. Hiemstra frequently studies issues relating to Cytokine and Inflammation. His Asthma research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Respiratory disease, Methacholine, Inhalation and Allergy.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (39.70%)
  • Internal medicine (21.26%)
  • COPD (20.76%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Immunology (39.70%)
  • COPD (20.76%)
  • Lung (13.29%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Immunology, COPD, Lung, Internal medicine and Inflammation. Pieter S. Hiemstra is studying Immune system, which is a component of Immunology. The COPD study combines topics in areas such as Pathogenesis, Pulmonary disease, Transcriptome, Gene and Corticosteroid.

His Lung study combines topics in areas such as Cancer research, Epithelial cell differentiation, Organoid, Disease and Innate immune system. His work deals with themes such as Gastroenterology, Endocrinology and Oncology, which intersect with Internal medicine. His Inflammation study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Interleukin, Cytokine and Pathology.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Airway Epithelial Barrier Dysfunction in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease: Role of Cigarette Smoke Exposure (78 citations)
  • Electronic cigarettes: a task force report from the European Respiratory Society (73 citations)
  • Human lung epithelial cell cultures for analysis of inhaled toxicants: Lessons learned and future directions. (53 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Immune system

Pieter S. Hiemstra spends much of his time researching Immunology, Lung, COPD, Inflammation and Internal medicine. His Immunology research incorporates themes from Gene expression, Haemophilus influenzae, Respiratory system, Bronchoalveolar lavage and Airway. The study incorporates disciplines such as Respiratory epithelium, microRNA, Mesenchymal stem cell and Polymerase chain reaction in addition to COPD.

His Inflammation research includes themes of Interleukin, Andrology, Cathelicidin, Vitamin D and neurology and Aerobic exercise. As a part of the same scientific study, Pieter S. Hiemstra usually deals with the Cathelicidin, concentrating on Immunity and frequently concerns with Antimicrobial peptides. His Internal medicine research incorporates elements of Gastroenterology and Endocrinology.
