Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Internal medicine

His scientific interests lie mostly in Transient receptor potential channel, Biochemistry, Biophysics, Cell biology and Ion channel. The various areas that Bernd Nilius examines in his Transient receptor potential channel study include Neuroscience and Voltage-dependent calcium channel. His study in Voltage-dependent calcium channel is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both TRPC Cation Channels, Patch clamp and Calcium signaling.

His Biophysics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Electrophysiology and Analytical chemistry. His Cell biology study incorporates themes from Endocrinology, TRPC, TRPA, Internal medicine and Stretch-activated ion channel. His Ion channel research includes elements of Zebrafish, Amino acid, Ankyrin repeat and Permeation.

His most cited work include:

  • Transient Receptor Potential Cation Channels in Disease (1109 citations)
  • Anandamide and arachidonic acid use epoxyeicosatrienoic acids to activate TRPV4 channels (812 citations)
  • The principle of temperature-dependent gating in cold- and heat-sensitive TRP channels (777 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Biophysics, Transient receptor potential channel, Internal medicine, Cell biology and Biochemistry. Bernd Nilius combines subjects such as Calcium, Patch clamp, Ion channel and Intracellular with his study of Biophysics. His Transient receptor potential channel research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Gating and Neuroscience.

Bernd Nilius works mostly in the field of Internal medicine, limiting it down to topics relating to Endocrinology and, in certain cases, Receptor, as a part of the same area of interest. His Cell biology study combines topics in areas such as Stretch-activated ion channel and TRPC. Biochemistry connects with themes related to Voltage-dependent calcium channel in his study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Biophysics (37.84%)
  • Transient receptor potential channel (27.21%)
  • Internal medicine (23.42%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2021)?

  • Transient receptor potential channel (27.21%)
  • Internal medicine (23.42%)
  • Endocrinology (20.18%)

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

Bernd Nilius focuses on Transient receptor potential channel, Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Biophysics and Cell biology. He interconnects Stimulation, Neuroscience, Ion channel and Pharmacology in the investigation of issues within Transient receptor potential channel. His study focuses on the intersection of Ion channel and fields such as Depolarization with connections in the field of Membrane potential.

He has researched Endocrinology in several fields, including Agonist, Receptor and Repolarization. His Biophysics research includes themes of Membrane, Biochemistry, Structural motif and TRPV. His work in Cell biology addresses issues such as Ankyrin, which are connected to fields such as Ankyrin repeat and TRPA.

Between 2011 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The transient receptor potential channel TRPA1: from gene to pathophysiology (242 citations)
  • Peripheral thermosensation in mammals (206 citations)
  • The puzzle of TRPV4 channelopathies (180 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Internal medicine

Transient receptor potential channel, Cell biology, Ion channel, Endocrinology and Internal medicine are his primary areas of study. His Transient receptor potential channel research includes elements of Biophysics, Stimulation and Function. His work carried out in the field of Biophysics brings together such families of science as Biochemistry, Motility, Stretch-activated ion channel, TRPM3 and Programmed cell death.

Ankyrin repeat and TRPA is closely connected to Ankyrin in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Cell biology. His research integrates issues of Neuroscience, Homeostasis, Ion transporter and Protein family in his study of Ion channel. The various areas that he examines in his Internal medicine study include Membrane potential and Keratinocyte.
