Awards & Achievements

1992 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)

Member of the Association of American Physicians


What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Immune system
  • Internal medicine

Robert Winchester mostly deals with Immunology, Rheumatoid arthritis, Antibody, Antigen and Molecular biology. His studies in Immunology integrate themes in fields like Cytotoxic T cell and Internal medicine. His Rheumatoid arthritis research incorporates themes from Immunogenetics, Genetics, Multiple sclerosis and Incidence.

His work in Antibody covers topics such as Lymphocyte which are related to areas like Virology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Autoantibody, Lupus erythematosus, B cell and B-1 cell in addition to Antigen. His Anti-SSA/Ro autoantibodies research includes elements of Anti-histone antibodies, Subacute cutaneous lupus erythematosus, Undifferentiated connective tissue disease and Immune complex clearance.

His most cited work include:

  • The 1982 revised criteria for the classification of systemic lupus erythematosus (12830 citations)
  • The shared epitope hypothesis. An approach to understanding the molecular genetics of susceptibility to rheumatoid arthritis. (2149 citations)
  • Human mononuclear phagocyte differentiation antigens. I. Patterns of antigenic expression on the surface of human monocytes and macrophages defined by monoclonal antibodies. (350 citations)

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

Robert Winchester spends much of his time researching Immunology, Molecular biology, Antigen, Genetics and Human leukocyte antigen. Robert Winchester has researched Immunology in several fields, including Disease and Allele. The concepts of his Allele study are interwoven with issues in Immunogenetics and Genotype.

His Molecular biology research also works with subjects such as

  • Antibody which connect with Lymphocyte,
  • Epitope, which have a strong connection to Monoclonal antibody and HLA-DR Antigen. In his research on the topic of Antigen, Complement receptor is strongly related with Receptor. His work deals with themes such as Psoriatic arthritis, Genetic predisposition and Virology, which intersect with Human leukocyte antigen.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (55.71%)
  • Molecular biology (24.20%)
  • Antigen (21.92%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2008-2020)?

  • Immunology (55.71%)
  • Psoriatic arthritis (7.76%)
  • Human leukocyte antigen (18.26%)

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

Immunology, Psoriatic arthritis, Human leukocyte antigen, Immune system and Internal medicine are his primary areas of study. His Immunology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Allele and Genotype. His research on Psoriatic arthritis also deals with topics like

  • Genetic heterogeneity which connect with Genetic predisposition,
  • Sacroiliitis and related Major histocompatibility complex, HLA-B Antigens, Age of onset and Sacroiliac joint,
  • Severity of illness which connect with Interleukin 17, Dermatology, Osteolysis, Radiography and Gastroenterology.

His study looks at the relationship between Human leukocyte antigen and topics such as Disease, which overlap with Coronary artery disease. His studies in Immune system integrate themes in fields like Haematopoiesis, Autoimmune disease, Lymphocyte, Mesenchymal stem cell and Bone marrow. He focuses mostly in the field of Internal medicine, narrowing it down to topics relating to Surgery and, in certain cases, Early ra.

Between 2008 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Treatment of Lupus Nephritis with Abatacept: The Abatacept and Cyclophosphamide Combination Efficacy and Safety Study (153 citations)
  • HLA associations reveal genetic heterogeneity in psoriatic arthritis and in the psoriasis phenotype (145 citations)
  • Psoriatic arthritis: from pathogenesis to therapy (96 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Immune system
  • Internal medicine

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Immunology, Human leukocyte antigen, Psoriatic arthritis, Internal medicine and T cell. His work is connected to Pathogenesis, Immune system and Rheumatoid arthritis, as a part of Immunology. The Human leukocyte antigen study combines topics in areas such as Haplotype, Genotype and Genetic heterogeneity.

As a part of the same scientific study, Robert Winchester usually deals with the Psoriatic arthritis, concentrating on Sacroiliitis and frequently concerns with Sacroiliac joint, Spondylitis and Incidence. His research investigates the connection between Internal medicine and topics such as Psoriasis that intersect with issues in Rheumatology. The various areas that he examines in his T cell study include Acquired immune system, Cytotoxic T cell, CD8 and Pathology.
