Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Immune system
  • Gene
  • Cytokine

His main research concerns Immunology, Interleukin 21, Inflammation, Lymphokine-activated killer cell and Interleukin 12. His work deals with themes such as NKG2D, Stem cell and Natural killer cell, which intersect with Immunology. His Interleukin 21 research incorporates themes from Natural killer T cell, Innate immune system, Antibody and Hepatitis B virus.

His study looks at the relationship between Hepatitis B virus and topics such as Immunotherapy, which overlap with Cancer research. Rui Sun interconnects Transgene and Function in the investigation of issues within Inflammation. Transcription factor and NFIL3 is closely connected to Cell biology in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Lymphokine-activated killer cell.

His most cited work include:

  • Pathogenic T-cells and inflammatory monocytes incite inflammatory storms in severe COVID-19 patients (409 citations)
  • NK cell-based immunotherapy for malignant diseases (379 citations)
  • Liver-resident NK cells confer adaptive immunity in skin-contact inflammation. (338 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Immunology, Immune system, Cancer research, Natural killer cell and Interleukin 21. He works mostly in the field of Immunology, limiting it down to topics relating to Cytotoxic T cell and, in certain cases, CD8 and T cell. His Immune system research includes elements of Cytokine, Liver injury, Lymphatic system, Lung and Transplantation.

His studies in Cancer research integrate themes in fields like Cell, Lung cancer, Tumor progression and Immunotherapy. His research in Natural killer cell intersects with topics in Tumor necrosis factor alpha, Liver function and Interferon gamma. His studies deal with areas such as Interleukin 12 and Antigen-presenting cell as well as Interleukin 21.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (62.75%)
  • Immune system (30.72%)
  • Cancer research (32.03%)

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

  • Cancer research (32.03%)
  • Immunology (62.75%)
  • Cell biology (24.18%)

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

Cancer research, Immunology, Cell biology, Immune system and Natural killer cell are his primary areas of study. His Cancer research research integrates issues from Hepatitis B virus, TIGIT, Immunotherapy and Chemotherapy. His work on Immunology is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as THP1 cell line.

His Cell biology research includes themes of Phenotype, Cell Maturation, Transcription factor and Transcription. His Immune system study incorporates themes from Immunopathology, Lung and Respiratory system. Rui Sun has researched Natural killer cell in several fields, including CXCR3, Leukemia and Retinoic acid, All trans.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Pathogenic T-cells and inflammatory monocytes incite inflammatory storms in severe COVID-19 patients (409 citations)
  • Aberrant pathogenic GM-CSF+ T cells and inflammatory CD14+CD16+ monocytes in severe pulmonary syndrome patients of a new coronavirus (161 citations)
  • Breakdown of adaptive immunotolerance induces hepatocellular carcinoma in HBsAg-tg mice (128 citations)

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

  • Immune system
  • Gene
  • Cytokine

Rui Sun mostly deals with Cancer research, Immunology, Immune system, Immune tolerance and Cell. The various areas that he examines in his Cancer research study include Acquired immune system, TIGIT, Immunotherapy and Hepatitis B virus. His Immunology study frequently intersects with other fields, such as Lung.

Rui Sun has included themes like Inflammation, Respiratory system and Immunopathology in his Immune system study. His Immune tolerance research includes elements of Immune checkpoint, HBsAg, PD-L1 and Viral load. He interconnects Tumor Escape, Fragmentation, Cytotoxicity and Mitochondrion, Mitochondrial fission in the investigation of issues within Cell.
