Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Virus
  • Gene
  • DNA

Yoshihiro Kawaoka mainly focuses on Virology, Virus, Influenza A virus, Influenza A virus subtype H5N1 and Viral replication. His studies in Virology integrate themes in fields like Pandemic, H5N1 genetic structure and Microbiology. His study in Virus is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Reverse genetics, Reassortant Viruses, Sialic acid and Virulence.

His Influenza A virus research incorporates elements of RNA, Gene, Molecular biology and Neuraminidase. He combines subjects such as Transmission, Outbreak and Reassortment with his study of Influenza A virus subtype H5N1. His research integrates issues of Amino acid, Human virome, Nucleoprotein and Filoviridae in his study of Viral replication.

His most cited work include:

  • Evolution and ecology of influenza A viruses. (3396 citations)
  • A DNA transfection system for generation of influenza A virus from eight plasmids (1279 citations)
  • Generation of influenza A viruses entirely from cloned cDNAs (1187 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Virology, Virus, Influenza A virus, Influenza A virus subtype H5N1 and Viral replication. His Virology study combines topics in areas such as H5N1 genetic structure and Microbiology. His Virus research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Pandemic and Gene, Virulence.

His study looks at the relationship between Influenza A virus and fields such as RNA, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. His work deals with themes such as Transmission, Human mortality from H5N1 and Outbreak, which intersect with Influenza A virus subtype H5N1. Yoshihiro Kawaoka has researched Viral replication in several fields, including Reverse genetics and Mutation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Virology (124.75%)
  • Virus (95.00%)
  • Influenza A virus (59.42%)

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

  • Virology (124.75%)
  • Virus (95.00%)
  • Antibody (12.33%)

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

Yoshihiro Kawaoka focuses on Virology, Virus, Antibody, Influenza A virus subtype H5N1 and Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2. His Virology research incorporates themes from Monoclonal antibody and Antigen. Virus is frequently linked to Pandemic in his study.

His Antibody study deals with Immunity intersecting with CD8. His research in Influenza A virus subtype H5N1 intersects with topics in Proinflammatory cytokine, Clade and Pathogenesis. His Influenza A virus study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Mutation, Receptor and Human Virus.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Syrian hamsters as a small animal model for SARS-CoV-2 infection and countermeasure development. (257 citations)
  • Syrian hamsters as a small animal model for SARS-CoV-2 infection and countermeasure development. (257 citations)
  • SARS-CoV-2 D614G variant exhibits efficient replication ex vivo and transmission in vivo (196 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Virus
  • DNA

His primary areas of study are Virology, Virus, Pandemic, Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 and Antibody. Many of his studies involve connections with topics such as Antigen and Virology. His Virus research includes elements of Transmission, In vivo and Pathogenesis.

The various areas that Yoshihiro Kawaoka examines in his Pandemic study include Polymerase and Influenza vaccine. His Influenza A virus subtype H5N1 study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Proinflammatory cytokine and Hemagglutinin. Yoshihiro Kawaoka interconnects Cell culture, Human Virus, Neuraminidase, Mutation and Receptor in the investigation of issues within Influenza A virus.
