Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Immune system
  • T cell

Her primary scientific interests are in Cell biology, Receptor, Natural Cytotoxicity Triggering Receptor 1, Lymphokine-activated killer cell and Interleukin 12. Receptor and Molecular biology are commonly linked in her work. Her studies deal with areas such as Natural Cytotoxicity Triggering Receptor 3, Cytolysis and Antibody as well as Natural Cytotoxicity Triggering Receptor 1.

Her work deals with themes such as Cellular immunity, Cell activation, NKG2D, NK Cell Lectin-Like Receptor Subfamily D and Human leukocyte antigen, which intersect with Cytolysis. Her Lymphokine-activated killer cell study contributes to a more complete understanding of Interleukin 21. Her study in Interleukin 12 is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Epstein–Barr virus and Virology.

Her most cited work include:

  • Identification and Molecular Characterization of Nkp30, a Novel Triggering Receptor Involved in Natural Cytotoxicity Mediated by Human Natural Killer Cells (687 citations)
  • NKp44, a Novel Triggering Surface Molecule Specifically Expressed by Activated Natural Killer Cells, Is Involved in Non–Major Histocompatibility Complex–restricted Tumor Cell Lysis (647 citations)
  • Molecular cloning of NKp46: A novel member of the immunoglobulin superfamily involved in triggering of natural cytotoxicity (522 citations)

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

Her primary areas of study are Receptor, Immunology, Cell biology, Human leukocyte antigen and Lymphokine-activated killer cell. The various areas that Simona Sivori examines in her Receptor study include Cell, Natural killer cell, Function, Molecular biology and NKG2D. Her Immunology study frequently involves adjacent topics like Cytolysis.

Her biological study deals with issues like Natural Cytotoxicity Triggering Receptor 1, which deal with fields such as Natural Cytotoxicity Triggering Receptor 3 and Immunoglobulin superfamily. Her work carried out in the field of Human leukocyte antigen brings together such families of science as Inhibitory receptors, Inhibitory postsynaptic potential and Cytoplasm. Lymphokine-activated killer cell is the topic of her studies on Interleukin 21 and Interleukin 12.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Receptor (52.53%)
  • Immunology (41.41%)
  • Cell biology (43.43%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Cancer research (15.15%)
  • Receptor (52.53%)
  • Immune system (21.21%)

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

Simona Sivori mainly focuses on Cancer research, Receptor, Immune system, Cell and Immunotherapy. Her research on Cancer research also deals with topics like

  • CD19 which is related to area like Cell therapy, Cell culture and Chimeric antigen receptor,
  • Adoptive cell transfer which is related to area like T helper cell. Her Receptor research includes themes of NKG2D and Cell biology, Function, Effector.

Her Immune system research is included under the broader classification of Immunology. Her Immunotherapy study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Innate immune system, Metastasis, Monoclonal antibody and Antigen. The Innate immune system study combines topics in areas such as Natural killer cell and Priming.

Between 2017 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Human NK cells: surface receptors, inhibitory checkpoints, and translational applications (86 citations)
  • PD/1-PD-Ls checkpoint: Insight on the potential role of NK cells (53 citations)
  • Harnessing NK Cells for Cancer Treatment. (24 citations)

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

  • Immune system
  • Gene
  • T cell

Her primary areas of study are Cancer research, Immunotherapy, Immune system, Human leukocyte antigen and Receptor. Her work in Cancer research covers topics such as Chimeric antigen receptor which are related to areas like Cell culture, Natural killer cell, B cell and Cell therapy. Simona Sivori has researched Immunotherapy in several fields, including Cell, Cell killing, Metastasis and Monoclonal antibody.

She mostly deals with Innate lymphoid cell in her studies of Receptor. Her Innate lymphoid cell study is associated with Immunology. Her Immunology research includes elements of Reprogramming and Downregulation and upregulation.
