His Cell biology research incorporates themes from Hippocampal formation and Gene expression. The study incorporates disciplines such as Antibody, Immunology, Transfection, Cell membrane and Molecular biology in addition to Neural cell adhesion molecule.

His work deals with themes such as Extracellular, Fibronectin and Stereochemistry, which intersect with Antibody. Bruce A. Cunningham has researched Cell adhesion in several fields, including Cell aggregation, Immunoglobulin domain and Cell adhesion molecule. His Gel electrophoresis study introduces a deeper knowledge of Biochemistry.

Between 1993 and 2018, his most popular works were:

  • The fragile X mental retardation protein and group I metabotropic glutamate receptors regulate levels of mRNA granules in brain (133 citations)
  • N-CAM Binding Inhibits the Proliferation of Hippocampal Progenitor Cells and Promotes Their Differentiation to a Neuronal Phenotype (121 citations)
  • Homophilic adhesion mediated by the neural cell adhesion molecule involves multiple immunoglobulin domains (118 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Amino acid

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Cell biology, Biochemistry, Astrocyte, Cell adhesion and Initiation factor. His Cell biology research includes elements of Neural cell adhesion molecule, Gene and Polyclonal antibodies. Bruce A. Cunningham combines subjects such as Glucocorticoid receptor, Signal transduction, Kinase and Cell division with his study of Neural cell adhesion molecule.

His Biochemistry study frequently draws connections between related disciplines such as Antibody. His Astrocyte research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Hippocampal formation, Cellular differentiation and Neuroepithelial cell. His study in Cell adhesion is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Morphogenesis, Gene expression, Hox gene and Cell adhesion molecule.
