Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Immune system
  • DNA

Richard A. Flavell spends much of his time researching Immunology, Cell biology, Molecular biology, Immune system and Signal transduction. His work is connected to Inflammation, Innate immune system, Inflammasome, Antigen and IL-2 receptor, as a part of Immunology. He interconnects Proinflammatory cytokine and Secretion in the investigation of issues within Inflammasome.

The Cell biology study combines topics in areas such as Cellular differentiation, Apoptosis and Cytotoxic T cell, Interleukin 21, T cell. His research investigates the link between Molecular biology and topics such as Locus that cross with problems in Chromatin. His Immune system study combines topics in areas such as Transforming growth factor beta and Cytokine.

His most cited work include:

  • Recognition of double-stranded RNA and activation of NF-kappaB by Toll-like receptor 3. (5144 citations)
  • The Transcription Factor GATA-3 Is Necessary and Sufficient for Th2 Cytokine Gene Expression in CD4 T Cells (2007 citations)
  • Help for cytotoxic-T-cell responses is mediated by CD40 signalling (1930 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Immunology, Cell biology, Immune system, Molecular biology and T cell. Inflammation, Cytokine, Innate immune system, Antigen and Immunity are the primary areas of interest in his Immunology study. His Antigen research incorporates elements of Antibody and Borrelia burgdorferi.

Within one scientific family, Richard A. Flavell focuses on topics pertaining to Cytotoxic T cell under Cell biology, and may sometimes address concerns connected to CD8. His work deals with themes such as Transforming growth factor beta and Virology, which intersect with Immune system. His Molecular biology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Gene and DNA.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (50.00%)
  • Cell biology (43.11%)
  • Immune system (25.24%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Cell biology (43.11%)
  • Immunology (50.00%)
  • Immune system (25.24%)

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

Richard A. Flavell mainly investigates Cell biology, Immunology, Immune system, Cancer research and Cytokine. His studies in Cell biology integrate themes in fields like Inflammation, T cell and Receptor, Innate immune system. His T cell study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Cytotoxic T cell, CD8 and Effector.

His Immunology research includes themes of Haematopoiesis and Inflammatory bowel disease. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Cell and Disease. His Cancer research research includes elements of Immune checkpoint and Immunotherapy.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Essential versus accessory aspects of cell death: recommendations of the NCCD 2015 (591 citations)
  • Metabolite-sensing receptors GPR43 and GPR109A facilitate dietary fibre-induced gut homeostasis through regulation of the inflammasome (480 citations)
  • Th17 cells transdifferentiate into regulatory T cells during resolution of inflammation (419 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Immune system
  • DNA

His main research concerns Immunology, Cell biology, Immune system, T cell and Immunity. His study explores the link between Immunology and topics such as Haematopoiesis that cross with problems in Mesenchymal stem cell. His study in Cell biology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Inflammation, Receptor, Transcription factor and Cell growth.

His studies deal with areas such as Commensalism, Gut flora, Disease and Cancer research as well as Immune system. His T cell research incorporates themes from Cytotoxic T cell, Interleukin 10 and Effector. Richard A. Flavell combines subjects such as Innate immune system, Viral load and Virology with his study of Immunity.
