Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Immune system
  • Antibody

Ronald N. Germain mainly investigates Cell biology, Immunology, Major histocompatibility complex, Antigen and T cell. His Cell biology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Acquired immune system, Receptor, MHC class II and T-cell receptor. In most of his Immunology studies, his work intersects topics such as Cytotoxic T cell.

The concepts of his Major histocompatibility complex study are interwoven with issues in Histocompatibility and Peptide. The various areas that Ronald N. Germain examines in his Antigen study include Interleukin, Molecular biology and Cell. His T cell research integrates issues from Macrophage and Cellular differentiation.

His most cited work include:

  • MHC-dependent antigen processing and peptide presentation: Providing ligands for T lymphocyte activation (1268 citations)
  • The biochemistry and cell biology of antigen processing and presentation (928 citations)
  • House dust mite allergen induces asthma via Toll-like receptor 4 triggering of airway structural cells. (865 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Cell biology, Immunology, Antigen, T cell and Molecular biology. His research in Cell biology tackles topics such as T-cell receptor which are related to areas like Agonist. His work investigates the relationship between Antigen and topics such as Antigen presentation that intersect with problems in Peptide binding.

Ronald N. Germain works mostly in the field of T cell, limiting it down to topics relating to Cytotoxic T cell and, in certain cases, Virology. His Molecular biology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as In vitro, Transfection, Spleen and Antibody, Monoclonal antibody. His Major histocompatibility complex study frequently links to other fields, such as CD8.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cell biology (36.67%)
  • Immunology (33.10%)
  • Antigen (32.38%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Cell biology (36.67%)
  • Immunology (33.10%)
  • Immune system (15.71%)

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

Ronald N. Germain mostly deals with Cell biology, Immunology, Immune system, Acquired immune system and Cell. His Cell biology research includes elements of Receptor, Chemotaxis, Cytokine and Antigen. His research in Antigen intersects with topics in Regulatory T cell, T cell, Antibody titer and Lymph node.

His research ties Cytotoxic T cell and Immunology together. His study in the fields of Natural killer T cell and Antigen-presenting cell under the domain of Cytotoxic T cell overlaps with other disciplines such as XCR1. His Cell study combines topics in areas such as Epigenetics, Autoimmunity, Computational biology and T-cell receptor.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • S1P-dependent interorgan trafficking of group 2 innate lymphoid cells supports host defense. (189 citations)
  • Commensal Microbiota Promote Lung Cancer Development via γδ T Cells. (165 citations)
  • Innate and adaptive lymphocytes sequentially shape the gut microbiota and lipid metabolism. (137 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Immune system
  • Antibody

Ronald N. Germain focuses on Cell biology, Immunology, Immunity, Antigen and T cell. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Cytokine, Cell type, Tissue homeostasis, Chemotaxis and Macrophage. His Immunology research includes themes of Cytotoxic T cell and Virology.

He does research in Antigen, focusing on CD8 specifically. His work on Regulatory T cell is typically connected to CD38 as part of general T cell study, connecting several disciplines of science. His studies in Lymphatic system integrate themes in fields like MHC class I and Major histocompatibility complex.
