Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Cancer
  • Enzyme

Alan Wells spends much of his time researching Cell biology, Epidermal growth factor, Signal transduction, Motility and Cancer research. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Calpain, Cell migration, Integrin and Cell adhesion. His Epidermal growth factor research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Epidermal growth factor receptor, Molecular biology, Kinase, MAPK/ERK pathway and Growth factor receptor.

His work carried out in the field of Signal transduction brings together such families of science as Wound healing, Receptor and Autophosphorylation. Alan Wells has included themes like Growth factor, Kinase activity, Cell growth and Actin in his Motility study. His Cancer research study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Tumor progression, Downregulation and upregulation, Metastasis and Cell culture.

His most cited work include:

  • Migration of tumor cells in 3D matrices is governed by matrix stiffness along with cell-matrix adhesion and proteolysis. (922 citations)
  • Cell adhesion and motility depend on nanoscale RGD clustering. (791 citations)
  • Localized biphasic changes in phosphatidylinositol-4,5-bisphosphate at sites of phagocytosis (442 citations)

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

Alan Wells mainly investigates Cell biology, Cancer research, Epidermal growth factor, Signal transduction and Internal medicine. He studies Cell biology, namely Motility. His Motility research includes themes of Cell, Growth factor, Cell growth and Actin.

His Cancer research research incorporates themes from Cancer cell, Cancer, Breast cancer, Metastasis and Immunology. His research in Epidermal growth factor intersects with topics in Epidermal growth factor receptor, Molecular biology, Kinase, MAPK/ERK pathway and Growth factor receptor. His Internal medicine research integrates issues from Endocrinology and Oncology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cell biology (50.00%)
  • Cancer research (30.48%)
  • Epidermal growth factor (28.33%)

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

  • Cancer research (30.48%)
  • Metastasis (16.43%)
  • Cell biology (50.00%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Cancer research, Metastasis, Cell biology, Immunology and Breast cancer. His Cancer research study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Cancer cell, Statin and Mesenchymal stem cell. His studies deal with areas such as Phenotype and Disease as well as Metastasis.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Autophagy and Human physiology in addition to Cell biology. His studies in Immunology integrate themes in fields like Mucin, Cornea and Cellular differentiation. His Ex vivo research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Epidermal growth factor, Metastatic breast cancer and Pathology.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Liver ‘organ on a chip’ (77 citations)
  • Skin tissue repair: Matrix microenvironmental influences. (63 citations)
  • SARS-CoV-2 growth, furin-cleavage-site adaptation and neutralization using serum from acutely infected hospitalized COVID-19 patients. (52 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Cancer
  • Enzyme

Cancer research, Breast cancer, Immunology, Metastasis and Cancer cell are his primary areas of study. His Cancer research research also works with subjects such as

  • Epithelial–mesenchymal transition which is related to area like Mesenchymal stem cell and Tumor progression,
  • Biomarker and related Epidermal growth factor, Drug discovery, Cholesterol, Transcriptome and Gene expression. His Mesenchymal stem cell research is under the purview of Cell biology.

His work on Homeostasis as part of general Cell biology study is frequently linked to Organ-on-a-chip, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. His study focuses on the intersection of Breast cancer and fields such as Statin with connections in the field of Atorvastatin and Disease. Alan Wells interconnects Protein kinase B, Signal transduction and Oncology in the investigation of issues within Cancer.
