Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Tuberculosis

Robin M. Warren mostly deals with Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Tuberculosis, Drug resistance, Genetics and Genotype. His studies in Mycobacterium tuberculosis integrate themes in fields like Virology, Microbiology, Internal medicine, Phylogenetics and Restriction fragment length polymorphism. His Virology research incorporates themes from Antibacterial agent, Ethambutol, DNA profiling, Sputum and Polymerase chain reaction.

His Tuberculosis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Incidence, Disease, Immunology and Epidemiology. His research integrates issues of Mutation, Antibiotic resistance, Rifampicin and Intensive care medicine in his study of Drug resistance. His studies deal with areas such as Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex, DNA sequencing and Gene mutation as well as Genotype.

His most cited work include:

  • Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex genetic diversity: mining the fourth international spoligotyping database (SpolDB4) for classification, population genetics and epidemiology (899 citations)
  • Exogenous Reinfection as a Cause of Recurrent Tuberculosis after Curative Treatment (534 citations)
  • Evolution and expansion of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis PE and PPE multigene families and their association with the duplication of the ESAT-6 (esx) gene cluster regions (335 citations)

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

Robin M. Warren spends much of his time researching Tuberculosis, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Virology, Drug resistance and Genotype. Robin M. Warren interconnects Internal medicine, Molecular epidemiology and Immunology in the investigation of issues within Tuberculosis. His Mycobacterium tuberculosis study combines topics in areas such as Genetics, Genome, DNA profiling, Microbiology and Restriction fragment length polymorphism.

Robin M. Warren has researched Virology in several fields, including Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex, Mycobacterium bovis, rpoB and Polymerase chain reaction. His Drug resistance research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Pyrazinamide, Ethambutol and Isoniazid. The concepts of his Genotype study are interwoven with issues in Veterinary medicine and Typing.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Tuberculosis (66.12%)
  • Mycobacterium tuberculosis (59.84%)
  • Virology (27.32%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Tuberculosis (66.12%)
  • Mycobacterium tuberculosis (59.84%)
  • Virology (27.32%)

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

His main research concerns Tuberculosis, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Virology, Drug resistance and Mycobacterium bovis. His Tuberculosis research includes themes of Internal medicine, Disease and Immunology. The various areas that Robin M. Warren examines in his Mycobacterium tuberculosis study include Genetics, Genome, Whole genome sequencing and Genotype.

His work deals with themes such as Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex, Concordance, Molecular epidemiology, Sanger sequencing and rpoB, which intersect with Virology. His Drug resistance study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Bedaquiline, Regimen and Genetic diversity. The study incorporates disciplines such as Ceratotherium simum, Rhinoceros and Interferon gamma, Immune system in addition to Mycobacterium bovis.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Whole genome sequencing of Mycobacterium tuberculosis: current standards and open issues. (69 citations)
  • The Lancet Respiratory Medicine Commission: 2019 update: epidemiology, pathogenesis, transmission, diagnosis, and management of multidrug-resistant and incurable tuberculosis. (32 citations)
  • Drug susceptibility testing and mortality in patients treated for tuberculosis in high-burden countries: a multicentre cohort study. (24 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • DNA

Robin M. Warren mainly focuses on Tuberculosis, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Drug resistance, Internal medicine and Immunology. His Tuberculosis research includes elements of Multiple drug resistance, Disease and Intensive care medicine. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Multiple drug resistance, Virology is strongly linked to Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex.

Robin M. Warren performs integrative study on Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Extramural in his works. His work carried out in the field of Drug resistance brings together such families of science as Phenotype, Microevolution and Genetic diversity. His Immunology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both RNA and Pulmonary tuberculosis.
