Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Immune system
  • Enzyme

Shaden Kamhawi mainly investigates Leishmania, Leishmania major, Virology, Immunology and Leishmaniasis. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Visceral leishmaniasis, Vector, Psychodidae and Genetics. His Leishmania major research incorporates themes from CD8 and Cutaneous leishmaniasis.

His study in the field of Vaccine efficacy also crosses realms of Ear infection. Shaden Kamhawi focuses mostly in the field of Immunology, narrowing it down to matters related to Saliva and, in some cases, Salivary gland. His work carried out in the field of Leishmaniasis brings together such families of science as Pathogen, Immunization, Immune system and Kinetoplast.

His most cited work include:

  • In Vivo Imaging Reveals an Essential Role for Neutrophils in Leishmaniasis Transmitted by Sand Flies (600 citations)
  • The Role of Interleukin (IL)-10 in the Persistence of Leishmania major in the Skin after Healing and the Therapeutic Potential of Anti–IL-10 Receptor Antibody for Sterile Cure (495 citations)
  • Development of a Natural Model of Cutaneous Leishmaniasis: Powerful Effects of Vector Saliva and Saliva Preexposure on the Long-Term Outcome of Leishmania major Infection in the Mouse Ear Dermis (381 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Leishmania, Leishmaniasis, Virology, Vector and Immunology. His Leishmania study is mostly concerned with Leishmania major and Phlebotomus. His studies examine the connections between Leishmania major and genetics, as well as such issues in Genetics, with regards to Sandfly.

His Virology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Visceral leishmaniasis, Leishmaniasis Vaccines, Leishmania donovani and Immune system. His study in Vector is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Cellular immunity and Dengue fever. His studies deal with areas such as Disease and Saliva as well as Immunology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Leishmania (37.89%)
  • Leishmaniasis (29.81%)
  • Virology (29.81%)

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

  • Genetics (13.66%)
  • Leishmania infantum (11.80%)
  • Leishmania (37.89%)

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

His main research concerns Genetics, Leishmania infantum, Leishmania, Vector and Leishmaniasis. The study incorporates disciplines such as Macrophage and Gene in addition to Leishmania. His research integrates issues of Visceral leishmaniasis, Parasitic disease and Public health in his study of Vector.

His Leishmaniasis study is focused on Immunology in general. The Immune system study combines topics in areas such as Leishmania major and Saliva. Shaden Kamhawi combines subjects such as Proinflammatory cytokine, Spleen, Leishmania donovani and Virology with his study of Leishmania major.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • What constitutes a neglected tropical disease (19 citations)
  • Will COVID-19 become the next neglected tropical disease? (18 citations)
  • DNA plasmid coding for Phlebotomus sergenti salivary protein PsSP9, a member of the SP15 family of proteins, protects against Leishmania tropica. (16 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Immune system
  • Enzyme

Shaden Kamhawi mainly focuses on Leishmania infantum, Leishmania, Leishmaniasis, Vector and Visceral leishmaniasis. His Leishmania infantum research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Virology, Asymptomatic, Risk factor and Fisher's exact test. His research in Leishmania is mostly concerned with Leishmania major.

His work focuses on many connections between Leishmaniasis and other disciplines, such as Immune system, that overlap with his field of interest in Microbiology, Saliva, CRISPR and Vector. Shaden Kamhawi works mostly in the field of Microbiology, limiting it down to topics relating to Cutaneous leishmaniasis and, in certain cases, Phlebotomus. His study in the fields of Phlebotomus perniciosus, Lutzomyia longipalpis and Miltefosine under the domain of Visceral leishmaniasis overlaps with other disciplines such as Strain.
