Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Immune system
  • DNA

William W. Kwok spends much of his time researching Immunology, Epitope, Antigen, Human leukocyte antigen and T cell. His research integrates issues of T lymphocyte and Virology in his study of Epitope. His study in Antigen is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Cytotoxic T cell and HLA-DQ.

His work in Cytotoxic T cell addresses subjects such as Molecular biology, which are connected to disciplines such as Genetic transfer and Complementary DNA. His Human leukocyte antigen research incorporates elements of Peptide sequence, CTL*, Allele and Antigen presentation. His research integrates issues of Islet, Kidney, Epitope mapping, Haplotype and Antigenic drift in his study of T cell.

His most cited work include:

  • Disease-associated Bias in T Helper Type 1 (Th1)/Th2 CD4+ T Cell Responses Against MAGE-6 in HLA-DRB10401+ Patients With Renal Cell Carcinoma or Melanoma (302 citations)
  • Functional inflammatory profiles distinguish myelin-reactive T cells from patients with multiple sclerosis (175 citations)
  • Molecular Basis for HLA-DQ Associations With IDDM (166 citations)

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

His main research concerns Epitope, Immunology, T cell, Antigen and Molecular biology. His work carried out in the field of Epitope brings together such families of science as T lymphocyte, Human leukocyte antigen, Major histocompatibility complex and Virology. He combines subjects such as Peptide sequence, Allele and T-cell receptor with his study of Human leukocyte antigen.

The concepts of his T cell study are interwoven with issues in Cytokine, CD154, Avidity and Haplotype. His Antigen study combines topics in areas such as Antibody and Antigen presentation. His study on Molecular biology also encompasses disciplines like

  • Cytotoxic T cell that connect with fields like CD8,
  • Peptide that connect with fields like Wild type and Proinsulin.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Epitope (107.82%)
  • Immunology (79.89%)
  • T cell (65.92%)

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

  • Epitope (107.82%)
  • T cell (65.92%)
  • Immunology (79.89%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Epitope, T cell, Immunology, Antigen and Molecular biology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Autoimmunity, Immune system, Effector, T-cell receptor and Islet in addition to Epitope. The T-cell receptor study combines topics in areas such as Ex vivo, Human leukocyte antigen and Computational biology.

His work investigates the relationship between T cell and topics such as CD154 that intersect with problems in Allergen, Haplotype, CD137 and Interferon. William W. Kwok does research in Immunology, focusing on Peanut allergy specifically. His Molecular biology research incorporates themes from Virus, Yellow fever, Ontogeny and Mass cytometry.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Der p 1-specific regulatory T-cell response during house dust mite allergen immunotherapy. (34 citations)
  • Der p 1-specific regulatory T-cell response during house dust mite allergen immunotherapy. (34 citations)
  • Modifying Enzymes Are Elicited by ER Stress, Generating Epitopes That Are Selectively Recognized by CD4+ T Cells in Patients With Type 1 Diabetes (26 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Immune system
  • DNA

His primary areas of investigation include Epitope, Immunology, T cell, Antigen and Peanut allergy. His research in Epitope tackles topics such as Autoimmunity which are related to areas like Unfolded protein response. His studies link Peripheral blood mononuclear cell with Immunology.

His T cell study is related to the wider topic of Immune system. William W. Kwok has included themes like Molecular biology, Flow cytometry, Citrullination and Allergy in his Immune system study. His Antigen research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Insulinoma, Effector, Endoplasmic reticulum, Cell biology and Antigen presentation.
