Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Immune system
  • Gene
  • Cytokine

Her primary areas of investigation include Immunology, Monocyte, Inflammation, Cell biology and Transforming growth factor beta. Cytokine, Immune system, Antigen, Lymphocyte and Arthritis are the subjects of her Immunology studies. Her Monocyte study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Cellular differentiation, Lipopolysaccharide, Chemotaxis, Molecular biology and Peripheral blood mononuclear cell.

Her research in Inflammation intersects with topics in Extracellular matrix, Mesenchymal stem cell, Tissue Breakdown and Resorption. Her Cell biology research includes elements of Wound healing, Apoptosis, Growth factor and Tumor necrosis factor alpha. Her Transforming growth factor beta study also includes fields such as

  • Cancer research that intertwine with fields like Natural killer T cell, Interleukin 21, Cytotoxic T cell and Immunity,
  • Interleukin that intertwine with fields like Fibroblast growth factor.

Her most cited work include:

  • Conversion of Peripheral CD4+CD25− Naive T Cells to CD4+CD25+ Regulatory T Cells by TGF-β Induction of Transcription Factor Foxp3 (4029 citations)
  • Transforming growth factor-beta induces development of the T(H)17 lineage. (2741 citations)
  • Transforming growth factor type beta induces monocyte chemotaxis and growth factor production (1103 citations)

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

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Immunology, Inflammation, Immune system, Monocyte and Cytokine. Her work carried out in the field of Immunology brings together such families of science as Peripheral blood mononuclear cell and Transforming growth factor beta. Her Transforming growth factor beta study is related to the wider topic of Transforming growth factor.

Her Inflammation study combines topics in areas such as Tumor necrosis factor alpha and Fibrosis, Pathology. Her Monocyte research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Endocrinology, Receptor, Chemotaxis, Molecular biology and Cell biology. Sharon M. Wahl has researched Molecular biology in several fields, including SLPI, Fibronectin and Biochemistry.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (52.58%)
  • Inflammation (26.12%)
  • Immune system (23.71%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2005-2021)?

  • Immunology (52.58%)
  • Immune system (23.71%)
  • Cytokine (16.15%)

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

Sharon M. Wahl mainly focuses on Immunology, Immune system, Cytokine, Virology and Inflammation. The study of Immunology is intertwined with the study of Peripheral blood mononuclear cell in a number of ways. Sharon M. Wahl focuses mostly in the field of Immune system, narrowing it down to topics relating to Transforming growth factor and, in certain cases, Tumor progression.

Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Interleukin 12, Regulation of gene expression and Transforming growth factor beta, Signal transduction. Her research integrates issues of Interleukin 23 and Interleukin 17 in her study of Transforming growth factor beta. Her Inflammation research integrates issues from Proteases and Prevotella intermedia.

Between 2005 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Transforming growth factor-beta induces development of the T(H)17 lineage. (2741 citations)
  • Intestinal macrophages and response to microbial encroachment (273 citations)
  • Induction of APOBEC3 family proteins, a defensive maneuver underlying interferon-induced anti–HIV-1 activity (256 citations)

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

  • Immune system
  • Gene
  • Cytokine

Sharon M. Wahl spends much of her time researching Immunology, Immune system, Cytokine, Interferon and Interleukin 17. Her Immunology study is mostly concerned with Tumor necrosis factor alpha, Autoimmune disease, Inflammation, FOXP3 and Proinflammatory cytokine. Her SLPI study, which is part of a larger body of work in Inflammation, is frequently linked to Adipose tissue macrophages, bridging the gap between disciplines.

Her study in Immune system focuses on IL-2 receptor in particular. Her studies in Interleukin 17 integrate themes in fields like Receptor, Transforming growth factor beta and T lymphocyte. Her work deals with themes such as Acquired immune system, Interleukin 6, Molecular biology, Lineage commitment and Interleukin, which intersect with Transforming growth factor beta.
