Awards & Achievements

2007 - Member of the National Academy of Medicine (NAM)

1986 - E. Mead Johnson Award, Society for Pediatric Research


What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Lung

His main research concerns Lung, Pulmonary surfactant, Bronchopulmonary dysplasia, Fetus and Respiratory distress. His Lung research is classified as research in Internal medicine. His research investigates the connection with Pulmonary surfactant and areas like Anesthesia which intersect with concerns in Lung injury and Lung volumes.

His studies in Bronchopulmonary dysplasia integrate themes in fields like Pediatrics and Obstetrics. His Fetus study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Betamethasone, Endocrinology, Corticosteroid and Gestation. In his research, MEDLINE is intimately related to Intensive care medicine, which falls under the overarching field of Respiratory distress.

His most cited work include:

  • Whole-body hypothermia for neonates with hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy. (1959 citations)
  • Effect of Corticosteroids for Fetal Maturation on Perinatal Outcomes: NIH Consensus Development Panel on the Effect of Corticosteroids for Fetal Maturation on Perinatal Outcomes (1007 citations)
  • Validation of the National Institutes of Health consensus definition of bronchopulmonary dysplasia. (789 citations)

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

His main research concerns Fetus, Lung, Internal medicine, Pulmonary surfactant and Endocrinology. His Fetus research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Andrology, Gestational age and Gestation. His study on Lung also encompasses disciplines like

  • Anesthesia which connect with Lung volumes,
  • Bronchopulmonary dysplasia together with Pediatrics.

His study looks at the relationship between Pulmonary surfactant and fields such as Respiratory distress, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. Betamethasone is the focus of his Endocrinology research. His Chorioamnionitis research incorporates themes from Inflammation, Lipopolysaccharide, Immune system and Immunology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Fetus (35.14%)
  • Lung (30.15%)
  • Internal medicine (24.63%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Fetus (35.14%)
  • Lung (30.15%)
  • Chorioamnionitis (19.00%)

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

Alan H. Jobe focuses on Fetus, Lung, Chorioamnionitis, Gestation and Inflammation. His Fetus study combines topics in areas such as Betamethasone, Internal medicine, Dosing and Physiology. His study brings together the fields of Endocrinology and Internal medicine.

His studies deal with areas such as Bronchopulmonary dysplasia, Mechanical ventilation, Glucocorticoid receptor and Premature birth as well as Lung. Alan H. Jobe combines subjects such as Necrotizing enterocolitis, Immunology and Pathology with his study of Chorioamnionitis. His Gestation study which covers Obstetrics that intersects with Pediatrics.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The Evolution of Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia after 50 Years (235 citations)
  • Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia: Executive Summary of a Workshop. (162 citations)
  • Mechanisms of Lung Injury and Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia. (102 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Lung

Alan H. Jobe mainly investigates Fetus, Bronchopulmonary dysplasia, Gestation, Pediatrics and Premature birth. The study incorporates disciplines such as Betamethasone, Internal medicine, Lung, Immunology and Physiology in addition to Fetus. Alan H. Jobe works mostly in the field of Internal medicine, limiting it down to topics relating to Endocrinology and, in certain cases, Breathing, Fetal Organ Maturity and Pulmonary compliance.

He has researched Lung in several fields, including Transcriptome, Bioinformatics and Gene expression profiling. His Bronchopulmonary dysplasia study incorporates themes from Lung injury, Mechanical ventilation, MEDLINE and Intensive care medicine. His research integrates issues of Obstetrics, Gestational age and Dosing in his study of Gestation.
