Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Retina
  • Neuron

Andy J. Fischer mainly focuses on Retina, Retinal, Cell biology, Muller glia and Neuroscience. His research in Retina intersects with topics in NMDA receptor, Immediate early protein, Biochemistry, Stem cell and Regeneration. He has included themes like Neurofilament, Endocrinology, Progenitor cell, Internal medicine and Calretinin in his Retinal study.

He interconnects Amacrine cell, Stromal cell, Pathology and Nitric oxide synthase in the investigation of issues within Cell biology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Retinal regeneration, Signal transduction and Neuroglia. When carried out as part of a general Neuroscience research project, his work on Stimulation is frequently linked to work in Visual processing, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study.

His most cited work include:

  • Müller glia are a potential source of neural regeneration in the postnatal chicken retina. (445 citations)
  • Identification of a proliferating marginal zone of retinal progenitors in postnatal chickens. (278 citations)
  • Potential of Müller glia to become neurogenic retinal progenitor cells. (206 citations)

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

Andy J. Fischer mainly investigates Retina, Cell biology, Muller glia, Retinal and Progenitor cell. His Retina study introduces a deeper knowledge of Neuroscience. His study in Cell biology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Downregulation and upregulation and Ciliary body.

His Muller glia research includes themes of Microglia, Neuroprotection, Signal transduction, Zebrafish and Retinal regeneration. The concepts of his Retinal study are interwoven with issues in PAX6 and Pathology. Andy J. Fischer combines subjects such as Growth factor, Cellular differentiation and Neural stem cell with his study of Progenitor cell.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Retina (58.50%)
  • Cell biology (53.74%)
  • Muller glia (40.82%)

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

  • Muller glia (40.82%)
  • Cell biology (53.74%)
  • Retina (58.50%)

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

His primary areas of study are Muller glia, Cell biology, Retina, Progenitor cell and Zebrafish. His Muller glia research focuses on Neuroscience and how it relates to Transcriptome. His Cell biology research incorporates elements of Reprogramming, Gene expression and Anatomy.

His work deals with themes such as Retinal, Downregulation and upregulation, Microglia, Signal transduction and Nf κb signaling, which intersect with Retina. His Progenitor cell research is multidisciplinary, relying on both NMDA receptor, Growth factor and Retinoic acid. The Zebrafish study combines topics in areas such as Midkine, Transcription factor and Gene regulatory network.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Jak/Stat signaling regulates the proliferation and neurogenic potential of Müller glia-derived progenitor cells in the avian retina (34 citations)
  • mTor signaling is required for the formation of proliferating Müller glia-derived progenitor cells in the chick retina. (31 citations)
  • The chick eye in vision research: An excellent model for the study of ocular disease. (26 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Retina
  • Neuron

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Muller glia, Cell biology, Retina, Progenitor cell and Neurogenesis. Andy J. Fischer has researched Muller glia in several fields, including Reprogramming, Retinal regeneration, Zebrafish and Anatomy. His Retina research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Retinal, Signal transduction, Microglia and Downregulation and upregulation.

His work carried out in the field of Retinal brings together such families of science as Ocular disease, Disease and Glaucoma. His Progenitor cell research is classified as research in Stem cell. The study incorporates disciplines such as KLF4 and Growth factor in addition to Neurogenesis.
