Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Bacteria
  • DNA

His primary areas of study are Microbiology, Neisseria meningitidis, Pilus, Cell biology and Bacteria. Xavier Nassif has researched Microbiology in several fields, including Achromobacter xylosoxidans and Gene, Escherichia coli. His Neisseria meningitidis study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Meningitis, Blood–brain barrier, Pilin, Bacterial outer membrane and Neisseria.

The various areas that Xavier Nassif examines in his Pilus study include Mutation, Mutant and Neisseria gonorrhoeae. His Cell biology research incorporates elements of Endothelial stem cell, Endothelium, Host cell surface and Vinculin. His Bacteria research includes themes of Chromatography and Mass spectrometry.

His most cited work include:

  • MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry tools for bacterial identification in clinical microbiology laboratory. (286 citations)
  • Real-Time Identification of Bacteria and Candida Species in Positive Blood Culture Broths by Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization-Time of Flight Mass Spectrometry (245 citations)
  • Rapid Identification of Staphylococci Isolated in Clinical Microbiology Laboratories by Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization-Time of Flight Mass Spectrometry (211 citations)

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

Xavier Nassif mainly focuses on Microbiology, Neisseria meningitidis, Pilus, Virulence and Gene. His studies in Microbiology integrate themes in fields like Escherichia coli, Mutant and Bacteria. The study incorporates disciplines such as Immunology, Purpura fulminans and Blood–brain barrier in addition to Neisseria meningitidis.

Within one scientific family, Xavier Nassif focuses on topics pertaining to Endothelium under Blood–brain barrier, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Pathology. His Pilus research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Fimbria and Cell biology. His Cell biology study combines topics in areas such as Endothelial stem cell and Cell, Cell junction.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Microbiology (101.08%)
  • Neisseria meningitidis (91.34%)
  • Pilus (44.40%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2020)?

  • Microbiology (101.08%)
  • Neisseria meningitidis (91.34%)
  • Virulence (31.05%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Microbiology, Neisseria meningitidis, Virulence, Pathogen and Staphylococcus aureus. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Meningitis, Prophage, Secretion, Bacteria and Gene. His Neisseria meningitidis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Pathogenesis, Purpura fulminans, Septic shock and Pilus.

The Virulence study combines topics in areas such as Antibiotics, Inflammation, Extracellular, Colonisation and Disseminated intravascular coagulation. Xavier Nassif interconnects Moraxella catarrhalis, Streptococcus mitis, Innate immune system and Colonization in the investigation of issues within Pathogen. The concepts of his Meningococcal disease study are interwoven with issues in Endothelial stem cell and Endothelium.

Between 2014 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Clinical features and prognostic factors of listeriosis: the MONALISA national prospective cohort study. (155 citations)
  • A journey into the brain: insight into how bacterial pathogens cross blood-brain barriers (88 citations)
  • New Players in the Toxin Field: Polymorphic Toxin Systems in Bacteria (84 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Bacteria
  • DNA

His scientific interests lie mostly in Microbiology, Neisseria meningitidis, Pilus, Bacteria and Virulence. His Microbiology study incorporates themes from Microbiome, Genetics and Gene. Xavier Nassif has included themes like Meningitis, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Bacterial pathogenesis, Clinical microbiology and Streptococcus in his Neisseria meningitidis study.

His studies deal with areas such as Crystallography, Helix, Protein filament and Cryo-electron microscopy as well as Pilus. His work deals with themes such as Virulence factor, Pathogenesis, Fimbria, Bacterial genetics and Gram-negative bacteria, which intersect with Bacteria. His research integrates issues of Filamentous bacteriophage, Prophage, Bacterial cell structure, Bacterial outer membrane and Inovirus in his study of Virulence.
