Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Bacteria
  • Virus

Veterinary medicine, Microbiology, Herd, Feces and Virology are his primary areas of study. Robert M. Friendship interconnects Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, Incidence, Colonization, Subclinical infection and Atrophy in the investigation of issues within Veterinary medicine. As a member of one scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Microbiology, focusing on Escherichia coli and, on occasion, Virulence.

His Herd study is focused on Animal science in general. His Virology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Polymerase chain reaction and Hepatitis E virus. His study in Antibiotic resistance is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Antimicrobial and Drug resistance.

His most cited work include:

  • Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus colonization in pigs and pig farmers. (407 citations)
  • Antimicrobial Resistance and Virulence Genes of Escherichia coli Isolates from Swine in Ontario (239 citations)
  • Prevalence of antibodies to the hepatitis E virus in pigs from countries where hepatitis E is common or is rare in the human population. (181 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Veterinary medicine, Animal science, Herd, Microbiology and Weaning. The study incorporates disciplines such as Outbreak, Feces, Salmonella and Environmental health in addition to Veterinary medicine. Robert M. Friendship mostly deals with Litter in his studies of Animal science.

Robert M. Friendship has included themes like Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus, Serology and Virology in his Herd study. The concepts of his Microbiology study are interwoven with issues in Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli. His Weaning study combines topics in areas such as Ovulation, Estrous cycle and Luteinizing hormone.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Veterinary medicine (37.80%)
  • Animal science (22.76%)
  • Herd (22.76%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Veterinary medicine (37.80%)
  • Weaning (16.67%)
  • Salmonella (11.38%)

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

Robert M. Friendship spends much of his time researching Veterinary medicine, Weaning, Salmonella, Animal science and Streptococcus suis. A large part of his Veterinary medicine studies is devoted to Herd. His Herd research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus, Outbreak, Virology and Genotype.

His Weaning research includes elements of Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae, Pediatrics and Starter. His Salmonella research focuses on Feces and how it relates to Submandibular lymph nodes and Antibiotic resistance. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Ovulation, Equine chorionic gonadotropin, Artificial insemination, Anemia and Iron supplementation.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Hematology and biochemistry reference intervals for Ontario commercial nursing pigs close to the time of weaning. (27 citations)
  • Distribution of Salmonella in Humans, Production Animal Operations and a Watershed in a FoodNet Canada Sentinel Site (18 citations)
  • Investigation of the Occurrence of Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Virus in Swine Herds Participating in an Area Regional Control and Elimination Project in Ontario, Canada. (12 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Bacteria
  • Virus

His primary areas of investigation include Veterinary medicine, Streptococcus suis, Salmonella, Herd and Litter. Robert M. Friendship combines Veterinary medicine and Manure in his studies. The various areas that Robert M. Friendship examines in his Streptococcus suis study include Tonsil, Multiplex polymerase chain reaction and Serotype, Microbiology.

He works mostly in the field of Salmonella, limiting it down to topics relating to Feces and, in certain cases, Submandibular lymph nodes, as a part of the same area of interest. His studies in Herd integrate themes in fields like Respiratory virus, Phylogenetic tree, Outbreak, Virology and Risk factor. His study in the field of Transmission and Influenza A virus is also linked to topics like Hemagglutination assay.
