Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Immune system
  • Virus
  • Antibody

Immunology, Virology, Cytotoxic T cell, Antigen and Immune system are his primary areas of study. His studies in Antibody, T cell, CTL*, B cell and Immunity are all subfields of Immunology research. His work on Virus as part of general Virology research is frequently linked to Bovine spongiform encephalopathy, bridging the gap between disciplines.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including CD8 and Immunotherapy. His work focuses on many connections between Antigen and other disciplines, such as T-cell receptor, that overlap with his field of interest in Molecular biology, Immune tolerance and Thymocyte. He works mostly in the field of Immune system, limiting it down to concerns involving Receptor and, occasionally, Signal transduction.

His most cited work include:

  • Functional role of type I and type II interferons in antiviral defense. (2095 citations)
  • Cytotoxicity mediated by T cells and natural killer cells is greatly impaired in perforin-deficient mice (1581 citations)
  • Impaired immune and acute-phase responses in interleukin-6-deficient mice (1518 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Immunology, Virology, Cytotoxic T cell, Immune system and Antigen. His study in T cell, Major histocompatibility complex, Immunity, B cell and T lymphocyte are all subfields of Immunology. The T cell study combines topics in areas such as MHC class I and Cell biology.

His research in Virology intersects with topics in Arenavirus, Lymphocytic choriomeningitis and Antibody. His research integrates issues of Molecular biology and CD8 in his study of Cytotoxic T cell. He has included themes like T helper cell and Antigen presentation in his Antigen study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (60.55%)
  • Virology (53.21%)
  • Cytotoxic T cell (44.72%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2002-2018)?

  • Immunology (60.55%)
  • Virology (53.21%)
  • Antibody (21.79%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Immunology, Virology, Antibody, Antigen and Immune system. Rolf M. Zinkernagel works mostly in the field of Immunology, limiting it down to topics relating to Cytotoxic T cell and, in certain cases, Effector. His studies deal with areas such as Arenavirus, Lymphocytic choriomeningitis and Immunopathology as well as Virology.

In his study, Microbiology and Immunoglobulin G is strongly linked to Virus, which falls under the umbrella field of Lymphocytic choriomeningitis. As a member of one scientific family, Rolf M. Zinkernagel mostly works in the field of Antibody, focusing on Spleen and, on occasion, Marginal zone and Germinal center. His Immune system study incorporates themes from Immunoglobulin E, Disease and Degranulation.

Between 2002 and 2018, his most popular works were:

  • Lymphoid follicle destruction and immunosuppression after repeated CpG oligodeoxynucleotide administration (401 citations)
  • Toll-like receptor engagement converts T-cell autoreactivity into overt autoimmune disease. (347 citations)
  • ON NATURAL AND ARTIFICIAL VACCINATIONS (263 citations)

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

  • Immune system
  • Gene
  • Virus

Rolf M. Zinkernagel mainly investigates Immunology, Antigen, Virology, Antibody and Immune system. His Immunology study often links to related topics such as Microbiology. His study in the fields of Epitope under the domain of Antigen overlaps with other disciplines such as Cognate.

His work deals with themes such as Genetics, B cell and Lymphocytic choriomeningitis, which intersect with Virology. The Antibody study combines topics in areas such as Spleen and Molecular biology. His work carried out in the field of T cell brings together such families of science as Cytotoxic T cell, Bystander effect, CD8 and Immunoglobulin E.
