Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Immune system
  • Gene
  • Antibody

Ralph M. Steinman focuses on Dendritic cell, Immunology, Antigen presentation, Cell biology and Antigen-presenting cell. The study incorporates disciplines such as T cell, Natural killer cell, CD8, Follicular dendritic cells and Interleukin 12 in addition to Dendritic cell. His research on Follicular dendritic cells also deals with topics like

  • Dendritic cell homeostasis, which have a strong connection to Conventional Dendritic Cell,
  • Monocyte and related Macrophage.

In his study, Priming is strongly linked to Cytotoxic T cell, which falls under the umbrella field of Immunology. His Antigen presentation research incorporates elements of Molecular biology, DC-SIGN and Major histocompatibility complex. The concepts of his Antigen-presenting cell study are interwoven with issues in IL-2 receptor, CD40 and Virology.

His most cited work include:

  • Dendritic cells and the control of immunity (12817 citations)
  • Dendritic cells and the control of immunity (12817 citations)
  • The dendritic cell system and its role in immunogenicity (4276 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Immunology, Dendritic cell, Antigen, Cell biology and Antigen-presenting cell. His research on Immunology frequently connects to adjacent areas such as Virology. His Dendritic cell research includes themes of T cell, Antigen presentation, Follicular dendritic cells, Monocyte and Interleukin 12.

His Follicular dendritic cells research includes elements of Lymph node and Myeloid-derived Suppressor Cell. Ralph M. Steinman has researched Antigen in several fields, including Molecular biology and Antibody. His research in Antigen-presenting cell intersects with topics in Natural killer T cell, B cell, Immune tolerance and CD40.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (51.59%)
  • Dendritic cell (47.57%)
  • Antigen (37.21%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2007-2019)?

  • Immunology (51.59%)
  • Dendritic cell (47.57%)
  • Antigen (37.21%)

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

His primary areas of study are Immunology, Dendritic cell, Antigen, Immune system and T cell. His research links Cytotoxic T cell with Immunology. Ralph M. Steinman has included themes like IL-2 receptor, Follicular dendritic cells, Antigen-presenting cell, Cell biology and Interleukin 12 in his Dendritic cell study.

He interconnects Molecular biology and FOXP3 in the investigation of issues within Antigen. His study focuses on the intersection of Immune system and fields such as Virology with connections in the field of DNA vaccination. His work carried out in the field of T cell brings together such families of science as DC-SIGN and Monocyte.

Between 2007 and 2019, his most popular works were:

  • Decisions About Dendritic Cells: Past, Present, and Future (748 citations)
  • Dendritic cells require a systemic type I interferon response to mature and induce CD4+ Th1 immunity with poly IC as adjuvant. (470 citations)
  • Microbial stimulation fully differentiates monocytes to DC-SIGN/CD209+ dendritic cells for immune T cell areas (449 citations)

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

  • Immune system
  • Gene
  • Antibody

His primary scientific interests are in Immunology, Dendritic cell, Immune system, Antigen presentation and Antigen. His Immunology research focuses on Immunity, Antibody, Antigen-presenting cell, Adjuvant and Acquired immune system. His Dendritic cell study incorporates themes from Neuroscience, Follicular dendritic cells and Cell biology.

His Antigen presentation study deals with the bigger picture of T cell. His Antigen study combines topics in areas such as Aorta and FOXP3. His Cytotoxic T cell study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Molecular biology and Major histocompatibility complex.
