Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Bacteria

Victor Nizet mostly deals with Microbiology, Innate immune system, Immunology, Virulence and Streptococcus pyogenes. His research in Microbiology intersects with topics in Streptococcus, Virulence factor and Staphylococcus aureus. His research integrates issues of Phagocyte, Transcription factor and Neutrophil extracellular traps in his study of Innate immune system.

The Immunology study combines topics in areas such as Signal transduction and Disease. Victor Nizet has included themes like Pathogen, Clone, Mutant and Heterologous expression in his Virulence study. The various areas that Victor Nizet examines in his Streptococcus pyogenes study include Chemokine and Peptide sequence.

His most cited work include:

  • Succinate is an inflammatory signal that induces IL-1β through HIF-1α (1591 citations)
  • HIF-1α Is Essential for Myeloid Cell-Mediated Inflammation (1484 citations)
  • NF-κB links innate immunity to the hypoxic response through transcriptional regulation of HIF-1α (1090 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Microbiology, Innate immune system, Immunology, Virulence and Staphylococcus aureus. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Streptococcus and Streptococcus pyogenes. His Innate immune system study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Antimicrobial peptides, Neutrophil extracellular traps and Cell biology.

His work carried out in the field of Cell biology brings together such families of science as Receptor and Transcription factor. His work on Immunology is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Macrophage. His study in Virulence is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Bacteria, Mutant and Virology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Microbiology (87.77%)
  • Innate immune system (43.38%)
  • Immunology (34.80%)

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

  • Microbiology (87.77%)
  • Innate immune system (43.38%)
  • Staphylococcus aureus (25.85%)

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

Victor Nizet spends much of his time researching Microbiology, Innate immune system, Staphylococcus aureus, Antibiotics and Virulence. His studies in Microbiology integrate themes in fields like Streptococcus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Bacteria. His Innate immune system research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Cytokine, Antimicrobial peptides and Cell biology.

His Staphylococcus aureus study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Bacteremia, Proteomics and In vivo. His study looks at the relationship between Antibiotics and topics such as Antimicrobial, which overlap with Urinary system. His Virulence study incorporates themes from Streptococcus pyogenes, Mutant and Antigen.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • To NET or not to NET:current opinions and state of the science regarding the formation of neutrophil extracellular traps. (124 citations)
  • Global chemical effects of the microbiome include new bile-acid conjugations (62 citations)
  • Global chemical effects of the microbiome include new bile-acid conjugations (62 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Bacteria

His main research concerns Microbiology, Innate immune system, Immunology, Gene and Immune system. Victor Nizet works in the field of Microbiology, focusing on Pathogen in particular. Victor Nizet works mostly in the field of Innate immune system, limiting it down to concerns involving Sepsis and, occasionally, Pathogenesis and NEU1.

Victor Nizet interconnects Group A, Disease and Tonsillitis in the investigation of issues within Immunology. As part of the same scientific family, Victor Nizet usually focuses on Gene, concentrating on Computational biology and intersecting with Natural product, Cloning, Polyketide, Adenylylation and Nonribosomal peptide. His Immune system research includes elements of Haematopoiesis, Granulopoiesis and Septic shock.
