Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Immune system
  • Gene

Robert J. Wilkinson spends much of his time researching Tuberculosis, Immunology, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Internal medicine and Latent tuberculosis. He combines subjects such as Vitamin D and neurology, Clinical trial and Disease with his study of Tuberculosis. His study focuses on the intersection of Immunology and fields such as Immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome with connections in the field of Prednisone.

Many of his research projects under Mycobacterium tuberculosis are closely connected to Context with Context, tying the diverse disciplines of science together. His studies in Internal medicine integrate themes in fields like Endocrinology, Surgery, Gastroenterology, Sida and Sputum. His Latent tuberculosis research incorporates elements of Intervention, Pharmacotherapy and Young adult.

His most cited work include:

  • An interferon-inducible neutrophil-driven blood transcriptional signature in human tuberculosis (1264 citations)
  • An interferon-inducible neutrophil-driven blood transcriptional signature in human tuberculosis (1264 citations)
  • An interferon-inducible neutrophil-driven blood transcriptional signature in human tuberculosis (1264 citations)

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

Robert J. Wilkinson mainly investigates Tuberculosis, Immunology, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Internal medicine and Immune system. His Tuberculosis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Surgery and Drug resistance. The various areas that Robert J. Wilkinson examines in his Immunology study include Immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome and Disease.

Robert J. Wilkinson works mostly in the field of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, limiting it down to topics relating to Microbiology and, in certain cases, Mycobacterium bovis, as a part of the same area of interest. His work deals with themes such as Gastroenterology and Isoniazid, which intersect with Internal medicine. Robert J. Wilkinson has researched Immune system in several fields, including Inflammation and Cytokine.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Tuberculosis (132.38%)
  • Immunology (101.09%)
  • Mycobacterium tuberculosis (82.31%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Tuberculosis (132.38%)
  • Mycobacterium tuberculosis (82.31%)
  • Immunology (101.09%)

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

Robert J. Wilkinson mainly focuses on Tuberculosis, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Immunology, Internal medicine and Tuberculous meningitis. His work carried out in the field of Tuberculosis brings together such families of science as Immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome and Disease. His Mycobacterium tuberculosis research incorporates themes from Virology, Immune system, Drug resistance, Microbiology and Sputum.

His work investigates the relationship between Immunology and topics such as Tuberculin that intersect with problems in Isoniazid. Robert J. Wilkinson focuses mostly in the field of Internal medicine, narrowing it down to topics relating to Oncology and, in certain cases, Cancer. Robert J. Wilkinson works mostly in the field of Tuberculous meningitis, limiting it down to topics relating to Intensive care medicine and, in certain cases, Meta-analysis.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Guidelines for the use of flow cytometry and cell sorting in immunological studies (second edition) (345 citations)
  • Guidelines for the use of flow cytometry and cell sorting in immunological studies (second edition) (345 citations)
  • Guidelines for the use of flow cytometry and cell sorting in immunological studies (second edition) (345 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Immune system
  • Gene

Robert J. Wilkinson focuses on Tuberculosis, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Immunology, Internal medicine and Immune system. His Tuberculosis research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Randomized controlled trial, Disease, Immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome and Immunopathology. Robert J. Wilkinson interconnects Tumor necrosis factor alpha, Whole blood, Immunity, Microbiology and Cytotoxic T cell in the investigation of issues within Mycobacterium tuberculosis.

His Immunology research includes elements of Psychological intervention and Pharmacotherapy. The concepts of his Internal medicine study are interwoven with issues in Pyrazinamide, Ethambutol, Rifampicin, Lipoarabinomannan and Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. His Immune system research integrates issues from Excitotoxicity, Central nervous system, Pathogenesis and Mycobacterium.
