Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Cell membrane
  • Biochemistry

Charles Ferguson focuses on Cell biology, Golgi apparatus, Endosome, Vesicle and Caveolin 1. He studies Cell biology, namely Regeneration. His work in Golgi apparatus covers topics such as Cell membrane which are related to areas like Secretory pathway, Secretory Vesicle, Lipid raft, Membrane lipids and Cholesterol.

His Endosome research includes elements of Cytoplasm, Chinese hamster ovary cell and Endocytic cycle, Endocytosis, Dynamin. His research integrates issues of Biogenesis, Liposome, Organelle and Endosome organization in his study of Vesicle. His Caveolin 1 research integrates issues from Caveolae and Caveolin.

His most cited work include:

  • Kidney organoids from human iPS cells contain multiple lineages and model human nephrogenesis (688 citations)
  • Role of LBPA and Alix in Multivesicular Liposome Formation and Endosome Organization (526 citations)
  • Segregation of sphingolipids and sterols during formation of secretory vesicles at the trans-Golgi network (318 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Cell biology, Caveolae, Endosome, Biochemistry and Caveolin. His Cell biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Endocytic cycle and Endocytosis. In his research, Green fluorescent protein is intimately related to Zebrafish, which falls under the overarching field of Caveolae.

Charles Ferguson works mostly in the field of Endosome, limiting it down to topics relating to Vesicle and, in certain cases, Lipid bilayer fusion. His study focuses on the intersection of Biochemistry and fields such as Biophysics with connections in the field of Cytoskeleton. His Caveolin research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Cytoplasm and Biogenesis.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cell biology (71.43%)
  • Caveolae (26.19%)
  • Endosome (17.86%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Cell biology (71.43%)
  • Caveolae (26.19%)
  • Biophysics (11.90%)

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

Charles Ferguson spends much of his time researching Cell biology, Caveolae, Biophysics, Caveolin 1 and Endosome. His study in the field of Mitochondrion, Endoplasmic reticulum and Intracellular is also linked to topics like Rab and Virtual reality. His work on Cavin as part of general Caveolae study is frequently connected to Hydrostatic pressure, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them.

His Biophysics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Ultrastructure, Immunogold labelling, Membrane protein and Cytoskeleton. His Caveolin 1 study also includes fields such as

  • Secretion which is related to area like Vesicle and Cancer research,
  • Autophagy, which have a strong connection to Proteomics. His Caveolin study in the realm of Signal transduction connects with subjects such as Cell-free system.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Rab18 promotes lipid droplet (LD) growth by tethering the ER to LDs through SNARE and NRZ interactions. (84 citations)
  • Rab5 and Alsin regulate stress-activated cytoprotective signaling on mitochondria (48 citations)
  • Journey to the centre of the cell: Virtual reality immersion into scientific data. (38 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Cell membrane
  • Genetics

Cell biology, Endosome, SNARE complex, Phosphorylation and Signal transduction are his primary areas of study. His work on Organelle as part of general Cell biology study is frequently linked to Virtual reality, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. As a part of the same scientific study, Charles Ferguson usually deals with the Organelle, concentrating on Oxidative stress and frequently concerns with Endocytosis.

His work deals with themes such as Unfolded protein response, Endoplasmic reticulum, USE1 and Intracellular, which intersect with SNARE complex. His Lipid droplet research extends to the thematically linked field of USE1. Charles Ferguson has researched Phosphorylation in several fields, including Biogenesis, Caveolae, Caveolin and Interactome.
