What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Virus
  • DNA

His primary scientific interests are in Virology, Virus, Immunology, Virus latency and Viral replication. His Virology research incorporates themes from T cell and In vivo. The Virus study combines topics in areas such as Genome, Gene and Provirus.

He combines subjects such as Peripheral blood mononuclear cell and Drug resistance with his study of Immunology. The study incorporates disciplines such as In vitro, Prostratin, Latent Virus, Stem cell and HIV integration in addition to Virus latency. In general Viral replication, his work in Viral entry is often linked to Persistence linking many areas of study.

His most cited work include:

  • Identification of a Reservoir for HIV-1 in Patients on Highly Active Antiretroviral Therapy (2466 citations)
  • Latent infection of CD4 + T cells provides a mechanism for lifelong persistence of HIV-1, even in patients on effective combination therapy (1771 citations)
  • Quantification of latent tissue reservoirs and total body viral load in HIV-1 infection (1711 citations)

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

Robert F. Siliciano focuses on Virology, Immunology, Virus, Viral replication and Viral load. His Virology study incorporates themes from T cell, Immune system and Antiretroviral therapy. His study in the field of Viral disease is also linked to topics like Latency.

His research investigates the connection with Virus and areas like T lymphocyte which intersect with concerns in G0 phase. His Viral replication study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Reverse transcriptase and Replication. His research integrates issues of RNA, Latent Virus, Virus Activation, Virus Integration and In vivo in his study of Virus latency.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Virology (99.59%)
  • Immunology (61.89%)
  • Virus (58.81%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Virology (99.59%)
  • Virus (58.81%)
  • Antiretroviral therapy (19.88%)

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

Robert F. Siliciano mostly deals with Virology, Virus, Antiretroviral therapy, Viral load and T cell. He has researched Virology in several fields, including Genome and In vivo. His Virus research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of DNA, Cell and Immune system.

Viral load is a subfield of Immunology that he studies. His work in the fields of Immunology, such as Lentivirus, overlaps with other areas such as Psychological intervention. His Memory T cell study, which is part of a larger body of work in T cell, is frequently linked to Latency, bridging the gap between disciplines.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Defective proviruses rapidly accumulate during acute HIV-1 infection. (381 citations)
  • Defective proviruses rapidly accumulate during acute HIV-1 infection. (381 citations)
  • Proliferation of latently infected CD4+ T cells carrying replication-competent HIV-1: Potential role in latent reservoir dynamics (213 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Virus

Robert F. Siliciano spends much of his time researching Virology, Virus latency, Immunology, Virus and T cell. His research in Virology intersects with topics in Genome, Provirus and Antiretroviral therapy. His studies in Virus latency integrate themes in fields like Small hairpin RNA, Gene knockdown, Immune system, Transactivation and Virus Activation.

His study in the fields of Viral load under the domain of Immunology overlaps with other disciplines such as Bayes' theorem. His research in T cell focuses on subjects like In vivo, which are connected to Cell culture, Homeostasis, T-cell receptor and In vitro. His study looks at the relationship between Viral replication and fields such as Cell growth, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.
