Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Bacteria

Victor J. Torres mainly focuses on Microbiology, Staphylococcus aureus, Virulence, Staphylococcal infections and Pathogen. His Microbiology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Immunology, Antigen, Receptor and CXC chemokine receptors, Chemokine receptor. His Staphylococcus aureus research integrates issues from Innate immune system, Immune system, Pathogenesis and Heme.

His Immune system research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Toxin and Transcriptome. Victor J. Torres interconnects Tropism and Bacteria in the investigation of issues within Virulence. His studies in Staphylococcal infections integrate themes in fields like Phagocytosis and Effector.

His most cited work include:

  • Metal Chelation and Inhibition of Bacterial Growth in Tissue Abscesses (599 citations)
  • Focused specificity of intestinal TH17 cells towards commensal bacterial antigens (305 citations)
  • Staphylococcus aureus IsdB Is a Hemoglobin Receptor Required for Heme Iron Utilization (245 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Microbiology, Staphylococcus aureus, Virulence, Leukocidin and Immunology. Within one scientific family, Victor J. Torres focuses on topics pertaining to Immune system under Microbiology, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Cytolysis. As part of one scientific family, Victor J. Torres deals mainly with the area of Staphylococcus aureus, narrowing it down to issues related to the Pathogen, and often Host.

As a part of the same scientific family, Victor J. Torres mostly works in the field of Virulence, focusing on Regulation of gene expression and, on occasion, Transcription factor. His Leukocidin study incorporates themes from Aureus infection, Biofilm, Virology, Cytotoxicity and Monoclonal antibody. His Immunology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Cytotoxic T cell, Antimicrobial and Antibiotics.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Microbiology (66.46%)
  • Staphylococcus aureus (65.19%)
  • Virulence (32.28%)

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

  • Staphylococcus aureus (65.19%)
  • Microbiology (66.46%)
  • Virulence (32.28%)

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

Staphylococcus aureus, Microbiology, Virulence, Leukocidin and Immunology are his primary areas of study. In general Staphylococcus aureus study, his work on Staphylococcus often relates to the realm of Cation diffusion facilitator, thereby connecting several areas of interest. His Microbiology research includes themes of Epitope, Innate immune system, Immune system and In vivo.

As a member of one scientific family, Victor J. Torres mostly works in the field of Immune system, focusing on Cytolysis and, on occasion, Ex vivo. His research in Virulence intersects with topics in Toxin, Pathogen and Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. His work deals with themes such as Perforation, Antibody, Monoclonal antibody and Vaccination, which intersect with Leukocidin.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Staphylococcus aureus Secreted Toxins and Extracellular Enzymes (48 citations)
  • Decoy exosomes provide protection against bacterial toxins (43 citations)
  • Vasculature-associated fat macrophages readily adapt to inflammatory and metabolic challenges (39 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Bacteria

His primary areas of investigation include Microbiology, Virulence, Cell biology, Staphylococcus aureus and Innate immune system. In most of his Microbiology studies, his work intersects topics such as Immune system. His Virulence research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Oxidative stress, Human morbidity, Plasmid and Purr.

His Cell biology research includes elements of Inflammation, Adipose tissue macrophages, White adipose tissue, Tissue homeostasis and CD11c. His Staphylococcus aureus research incorporates elements of Pathogen, Paraquat, Efflux and Intracellular. His Innate immune system study also includes fields such as

  • Leukocidin together with Immunity,
  • Lysosome that intertwine with fields like Autophagy.
