Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Immune system
  • Disease

His scientific interests lie mostly in Immunology, Pediatrics, Vaccination, Virology and Odds ratio. His Immunology research includes elements of Bacteremia and Tuberculosis. His work deals with themes such as Incidence, Serotype, Severe Acute Malnutrition, Group B and Disease burden, which intersect with Pediatrics.

His work in Vaccination tackles topics such as Pregnancy which are related to areas like Breast milk and Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. His Virology study incorporates themes from Salmonella enterica, Drug resistance, Microbiology and Malnutrition in children, Malnutrition. His Odds ratio research integrates issues from Sibling, Lipid profile, Case-control study and Cohort study.

His most cited work include:

  • Invasive non-typhoidal salmonella disease: an emerging and neglected tropical disease in Africa (568 citations)
  • Invasive non-typhoidal salmonella disease: an emerging and neglected tropical disease in Africa (568 citations)
  • Dysfunction of Endothelial Protein C Activation in Severe Meningococcal Sepsis (550 citations)

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

Robert S. Heyderman spends much of his time researching Immunology, Pediatrics, Internal medicine, Virology and Meningitis. His study in Pediatrics is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Incidence, Cohort study, Young adult, Disease burden and Cohort. His Internal medicine study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Cryptococcal meningitis, Gastroenterology and Tuberculosis.

Robert S. Heyderman regularly ties together related areas like Salmonella enterica in his Virology studies. His research integrates issues of Carriage, Streptococcus pneumoniae and Transmission in his study of Serotype. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Rotavirus vaccine and Rotavirus.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (49.66%)
  • Pediatrics (31.83%)
  • Internal medicine (33.18%)

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

  • Internal medicine (33.18%)
  • Streptococcus pneumoniae (21.90%)
  • Serotype (20.09%)

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

Robert S. Heyderman mostly deals with Internal medicine, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Serotype, Carriage and Meningitis. His work in the fields of Odds ratio, Randomized controlled trial and Incidence overlaps with other areas such as Flucytosine. The concepts of his Streptococcus pneumoniae study are interwoven with issues in In vitro, Immune system and Virulence.

Serotype is a subfield of Virology that Robert S. Heyderman tackles. His research on Carriage also deals with topics like

  • Pneumococcal conjugate vaccine which intersects with area such as Nasopharyngeal carriage, Transmission, Pneumococcal vaccine, Vaccine efficacy and Force of infection,
  • Pneumococcal carriage that connect with fields like Immunology. Robert S. Heyderman works in the field of Immunology, namely Inflammation.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Antifungal Combinations for Treatment of Cryptococcal Meningitis in Africa (129 citations)
  • Impact of monovalent rotavirus vaccine on diarrhoea-associated post-neonatal infant mortality in rural communities in Malawi: a population-based birth cohort study (26 citations)
  • Impact of monovalent rotavirus vaccine on diarrhoea-associated post-neonatal infant mortality in rural communities in Malawi: a population-based birth cohort study (26 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Immune system

His primary scientific interests are in Internal medicine, Pediatrics, Flucytosine, Mortality rate and Vaccination. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Internal medicine, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Carbapenem, Phylogenetic tree and Plasmid is strongly linked to Antibiotic resistance. His Pediatrics study combines topics in areas such as Serotype, Transmission, Pneumococcal conjugate vaccine, Antiretroviral therapy and Nasopharyngeal carriage.

His Vaccination research incorporates themes from Rotavirus vaccine, Rotavirus, Force of infection and Streptococcus pneumoniae vaccine. Rotavirus is a subfield of Immunology that Robert S. Heyderman explores. His Immunology study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as Colonization.
