Alun M. Davies spends much of his time researching Neuroscience, Nerve growth factor, Neurotrophic factors, Cell biology and Neurotrophin. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Neurite, Bcl-2 family, Anatomy and Transcription factor. His Nerve growth factor research incorporates themes from Endocrinology, Sensory neuron, Sensory system and Neuron.
His work on Cell type expands to the thematically related Neurotrophic factors. His Cell biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Receptor, Programmed cell death and Transfection. His Neurotrophin study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Peripheral nervous system, Central nervous system, Growth factor, Tropomyosin receptor kinase B and Dorsal root ganglion.
His primary areas of study are Cell biology, Neuroscience, Nerve growth factor, Neurotrophin and Neurotrophic factors. His Cell biology study incorporates themes from Receptor, Neurite and Anatomy. Many of his studies on Neuroscience apply to Autocrine signalling as well.
His Nerve growth factor research incorporates elements of Trigeminal ganglion, Endocrinology and Sensory neuron. His studies deal with areas such as Immunology, Programmed cell death, Tropomyosin receptor kinase B and Period as well as Neurotrophin. His work in the fields of Neurotrophic factors, such as Glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor, Ciliary neurotrophic factor and Brain-derived neurotrophic factor, intersects with other areas such as Population.
Alun M. Davies mainly focuses on Cell biology, Neuroscience, Signal transduction, Regulator and Nerve growth factor. His Cell biology research integrates issues from Receptor, Medium spiny neuron and Neurite. His work deals with themes such as Glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor and Neurotrophic factors, which intersect with Neuroscience.
His Signal transduction research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Tumor necrosis factor alpha, Internal medicine, Endocrinology and Nervous system. His research integrates issues of Neurotrophin and Superior cervical ganglion in his study of Nerve growth factor. The concepts of his Neurotrophin study are interwoven with issues in Peripheral nervous system and Sensory system.
Alun M. Davies focuses on Signal transduction, Cell biology, Neuroscience, Nerve growth factor and Neurite. His Cell biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Adipose tissue, Thermogenesis, Secretion and Transgene. The study incorporates disciplines such as Glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor and Protein tyrosine phosphatase in addition to Neuroscience.
Nerve growth factor is a subfield of Internal medicine that Alun M. Davies tackles. In the field of Internal medicine, his study on Peripheral nervous system and Sensory neuron overlaps with subjects such as RANK Ligand. His Superior cervical ganglion research includes themes of Neurotrophic factors, Neurotrophin, Transforming growth factor beta, SMAD and MAPK/ERK pathway.
