Rafi Ahmed mainly focuses on Immunology, Cytotoxic T cell, Virology, Antigen and Immune system. CD8, Lymphocytic choriomeningitis, Immunity, Antibody and Vaccination are among the areas of Immunology where the researcher is concentrating his efforts. He has researched Cytotoxic T cell in several fields, including T cell and Cell biology.
He focuses mostly in the field of Virology, narrowing it down to topics relating to Immunogen and, in certain cases, AIDS Vaccines, Hiv envelope and HIV vaccine. His study looks at the relationship between Antigen and fields such as Adoptive cell transfer, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. His IL-2 receptor study combines topics in areas such as Natural killer T cell and CD28.
Immunology, Virology, Cytotoxic T cell, Immune system and Virus are his primary areas of study. T cell, Antigen, Lymphocytic choriomeningitis, Antibody and Immunity are the primary areas of interest in his Immunology study. He has included themes like Epitope and CTL* in his Virology study.
His Cytotoxic T cell study incorporates themes from CD8 and Cell biology. His Cell biology research includes elements of CD28 and Cellular differentiation. Rafi Ahmed combines subjects such as Natural killer T cell, Molecular biology, Interleukin 12 and CD40 with his study of Interleukin 21.
Rafi Ahmed mainly investigates Immunology, Antibody, Virology, Immune system and Cytotoxic T cell. His research on Immunology often connects related topics like Blockade. In his study, Immunization and Yellow fever is strongly linked to Vaccination, which falls under the umbrella field of Antibody.
His work deals with themes such as Epitope and Monoclonal antibody, which intersect with Virology. His Immune system study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Serology and Antigen. His Cytotoxic T cell research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Cancer research, T cell, CD8, Cell biology and Chronic infection.
His main research concerns Immunology, Virology, Antibody, Cytotoxic T cell and Vaccination. Rafi Ahmed regularly links together related areas like Blockade in his Immunology studies. Rafi Ahmed interconnects Epitope and Immune system in the investigation of issues within Virology.
His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including RTS,S and Antibody titer. His study focuses on the intersection of Antibody and fields such as Ebola virus with connections in the field of Observational study, Cohort study and Clinical trial. His Cytotoxic T cell research incorporates elements of Cancer research, Cellular differentiation, T cell, Cell biology and Epigenetics.
