His scientific interests lie mostly in Immunology, Proinflammatory cytokine, Internal medicine, Endocrinology and Sickness behavior. Immunology is frequently linked to Central nervous system in his study. His research in Proinflammatory cytokine intersects with topics in Cytokine, Microglia, Hippocampal formation, Neuroinflammation and Hippocampus.
His studies deal with areas such as Malaise, Psychiatry and Pleasure as well as Sickness behavior. In his study, Immunopathology and Depression is inextricably linked to Disease, which falls within the broad field of Immune system. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Homeostasis and Immunity.
His primary areas of investigation include Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Immunology, Lipopolysaccharide and Proinflammatory cytokine. His Endocrinology study incorporates themes from Interleukin 6, Interleukin and Cytokine. Neuroinflammation, Immune system, Microglia, Inflammation and Sickness behavior are subfields of Immunology in which his conducts study.
His Immune system research focuses on Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus and how it relates to Andrology. His Lipopolysaccharide research integrates issues from Saline and Pharmacology. His Proinflammatory cytokine research incorporates themes from Innate immune system and Interleukin 10.
Rodney W. Johnson spends much of his time researching Immunology, Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Neuroinflammation and Immune system. His Hippocampus study in the realm of Internal medicine interacts with subjects such as Epigallocatechin gallate. His work in the fields of Stimulation overlaps with other areas such as Butyrate.
His Neuroinflammation research also works with subjects such as
