Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Bacteria
  • Enzyme
  • Biochemistry

His primary areas of study are Microbiology, Bacilli, Tubercle, Bacteroides and Bacteria. René J. Dubos has included themes like BCG vaccine, Tyrocidine and Gram-negative bacteria in his Microbiology study. His Bacilli research integrates issues from Strain and Gram-positive bacteria.

The Tubercle study combines topics in areas such as Blood serum and Virology. His Bacteroides research includes themes of Gastrointestinal tract and Cecum. His Bacteria research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Peritoneum and Enzyme.

His most cited work include:

  • The White Plague: Tuberculosis, Man and Society (344 citations)
  • Mirage of health (292 citations)
  • Bacterial and mycotic infections of man (274 citations)

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

René J. Dubos spends much of his time researching Microbiology, Bacilli, Biochemistry, Immunology and Tubercle. As a part of the same scientific family, René J. Dubos mostly works in the field of Microbiology, focusing on Bacteria and, on occasion, Cecum. The Bacilli study which covers Blood serum that intersects with Blood chemistry.

René J. Dubos works mostly in the field of Biochemistry, limiting it down to topics relating to Bacterial growth and, in certain cases, Fatty acid. His biological study deals with issues like Tuberculosis, which deal with fields such as Immunity and Virology. His Tubercle study incorporates themes from Oleic acid and Bacillus.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Microbiology (35.44%)
  • Bacilli (17.30%)
  • Biochemistry (15.61%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 1967-2019)?

  • Environmental ethics (3.80%)
  • Microbiology (35.44%)
  • Bacteria (9.70%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Environmental ethics, Microbiology, Bacteria, Ecology and Ancient history. His Microbiology study combines topics in areas such as Food science, Deoxyribonuclease, Enzyme, Bacillus subtilis and Laundry. His Bacteria research includes themes of Gastrointestinal tract and Cecum.

As part of one scientific family, he deals mainly with the area of Gastrointestinal tract, narrowing it down to issues related to the Tissue culture, and often Immunology and Weaning. In his study, Lactobacillus, Penicillin and Oxytetracycline is inextricably linked to Bacteroides, which falls within the broad field of Cecum. René J. Dubos works mostly in the field of Ecology, limiting it down to topics relating to Earth and, in certain cases, Symbiosis, as a part of the same area of interest.

Between 1967 and 2019, his most popular works were:

  • The White Plague: Tuberculosis, Man and Society (344 citations)
  • THE GASTROINTESTINAL EPITHELIUM AND ITS AUTOCHTHONOUS BACTERIAL FLORA (264 citations)
  • Mirage of Health: Utopias, Progress, and Biological Change (229 citations)

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

  • Bacteria
  • Enzyme
  • Law

René J. Dubos mainly investigates Bacteria, Microbiology, Cecum, Bacteroides and Earth. Many of his studies on Bacteria involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Gastrointestinal epithelium. His Cecum study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Agar plate, Fusobacterium, Oxytetracycline, Eubacterium and Drug.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Stratified squamous epithelium, Mucus, Gram-Positive Cocci, Gastrointestinal tract and Lactobacillus. His research integrates issues of Intestinal mucosa, Penicillin, Kanamycin, Enterobacteriaceae and Ingestion in his study of Lactobacillus. His Anaerobic bacteria study incorporates themes from Specific-pathogen-free, Clostridium and Coliform bacilli.
