Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Virus
  • Immune system
  • Gene

His primary areas of investigation include Immunology, Virology, Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus, Cytokine and Microglia. Thomas W. Molitor studies Immunology, namely Immune system. Many of his studies on Virology involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Antibody.

His Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus research entails a greater understanding of Virus. His work deals with themes such as Tumor necrosis factor alpha, Molecular biology and In vitro, which intersect with Cytokine. His study in Microglia is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Cell, Nitric oxide, Astrocyte and Cell biology.

His most cited work include:

  • Activated microglia mediate neuronal cell injury via a nitric oxide mechanism. (1011 citations)
  • Central Nervous System Tuberculosis: Pathogenesis and Clinical Aspects (389 citations)
  • The opioid–cytokine connection (197 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Virology, Immunology, Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus, Virus and Immune system. The various areas that he examines in his Virology study include Molecular biology, Herd, Antibody and Polymerase chain reaction. His Immunology research integrates issues from Central nervous system and Opiate.

His work in Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus covers topics such as Gestation which are related to areas like Lactation and Fetus. His Virus research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Lymphocyte proliferation, Antigen and Pneumonia. Thomas W. Molitor interconnects Tumor necrosis factor alpha, Phagocytosis, Cell biology, Cytokine and Receptor in the investigation of issues within Microglia.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Virology (45.61%)
  • Immunology (36.84%)
  • Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (27.19%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2002-2014)?

  • Immunology (36.84%)
  • Immune system (18.42%)
  • Virology (45.61%)

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

Immunology, Immune system, Virology, Lymphocyte and Immunity are his primary areas of study. His Immunology research includes elements of Morphine, Mycobacterium bovis and Central nervous system. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Tuberculosis, Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Microglia.

His Immune system research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Antibody and In vivo. His work on Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus, Virus and Transmission as part of his general Virology study is frequently connected to 23S ribosomal RNA, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. His work in Lymphocyte tackles topics such as Colostrum which are related to areas like Animal science, Lactation, Endocrinology and Internal medicine.

Between 2002 and 2014, his most popular works were:

  • Central Nervous System Tuberculosis: Pathogenesis and Clinical Aspects (389 citations)
  • Effects of feeding heat-treated colostrum on passive transfer of immune and nutritional parameters in neonatal dairy calves. (123 citations)
  • Current perspectives on the diagnosis and epidemiology of Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae infection. (120 citations)

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

  • Immune system
  • Virus
  • Gene

His main research concerns Immunology, Immune system, Lymphocyte, Virology and Colostrum. His research in Immunology intersects with topics in Tuberculosis vaccines, Regimen and Central nervous system. His research brings together the fields of Antibody and Immune system.

His studies deal with areas such as Vitamin, Endocrinology, Animal science and Passive immunity as well as Lymphocyte. When carried out as part of a general Virology research project, his work on Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus is frequently linked to work in Pneumonia, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. His research on Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus concerns the broader Virus.
