Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Virus
  • DNA

His main research concerns Virology, Virus, Immunology, Molecular biology and Antibody. His Virology research incorporates elements of T lymphocyte, Antigen and Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. His research integrates issues of Transmission and Internal medicine in his study of Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome.

Within one scientific family, Robert C. Gallo focuses on topics pertaining to Leukemia under Virus, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Myeloid. His research on Immunology often connects related areas such as Epidemiology. His Molecular biology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Cell culture, Lymphoblast, Reverse transcriptase and Gene product, Gene expression.

His most cited work include:

  • Detection and isolation of type C retrovirus particles from fresh and cultured lymphocytes of a patient with cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (4000 citations)
  • Frequent detection and isolation of cytopathic retroviruses (HTLV-III) from patients with AIDS and at risk for AIDS (2948 citations)
  • Detection, isolation, and continuous production of cytopathic retroviruses (HTLV-III) from patients with AIDS and pre-AIDS (2936 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Virology, Virus, Immunology, Molecular biology and Antibody. The various areas that Robert C. Gallo examines in his Virology study include Cell culture, Leukemia, Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome and Antigen. The study incorporates disciplines such as Provirus, Gene and Lymphoma in addition to Virus.

His work in Immunology is not limited to one particular discipline; it also encompasses Cytotoxic T cell. As a part of the same scientific family, Robert C. Gallo mostly works in the field of Molecular biology, focusing on DNA polymerase and, on occasion, Polymerase. His is involved in several facets of Antibody study, as is seen by his studies on Epitope and Monoclonal antibody.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Virology (60.70%)
  • Virus (42.02%)
  • Immunology (32.39%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 1999-2021)?

  • Virology (60.70%)
  • Immunology (32.39%)
  • Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (14.40%)

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

Robert C. Gallo mainly focuses on Virology, Immunology, Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, Antibody and Immune system. His Virology study incorporates themes from Epitope and Immunogen. His Immunology research focuses on HIV vaccine and how it connects with Immunity, AIDS Vaccines and Clinical trial.

His study looks at the relationship between Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome and topics such as Family medicine, which overlap with HIV/AIDS research. In his work, Cell biology is strongly intertwined with T cell, which is a subfield of Antibody. His Immune system research includes themes of Cytotoxic T cell, Antigen, Cytokine and Immunopathology.

Between 1999 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Emerging SARS-CoV-2 mutation hot spots include a novel RNA-dependent-RNA polymerase variant. (419 citations)
  • Emerging SARS-CoV-2 mutation hot spots include a novel RNA-dependent-RNA polymerase variant. (419 citations)
  • An HIV-1 transgenic rat that develops HIV-related pathology and immunologic dysfunction (267 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Virus
  • DNA

Robert C. Gallo spends much of his time researching Virology, Immunology, Immune system, Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome and Antibody. His research on Virology frequently connects to adjacent areas such as Molecular biology. Robert C. Gallo combines subjects such as Bevacizumab, Cytokine, Rhabdomyosarcoma and Vaccination with his study of Immune system.

His research in Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome intersects with topics in Developed country, Promotion, Vaccine efficacy and Family medicine. As a member of one scientific family, Robert C. Gallo mostly works in the field of Antibody, focusing on HIV vaccine and, on occasion, AIDS Vaccines. His Retrovirus research integrates issues from Leukemia and Reverse transcriptase.
