2020 - Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences


What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Neuron

His primary scientific interests are in Neuroscience, Nociceptor, Neuropathic pain, Nociception and Spinal cord. Neuroscience is closely attributed to Noxious stimulus in his work. Clifford J. Woolf interconnects Inflammation, Peripheral nervous system, Central nervous system, Diffuse noxious inhibitory control and Neuroplasticity in the investigation of issues within Nociceptor.

The concepts of his Neuropathic pain study are interwoven with issues in Threshold of pain, Chronic pain, Microglia and Neuron. Within one scientific family, Clifford J. Woolf focuses on topics pertaining to Sensory neuron under Nociception, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Neurotransmission. His studies deal with areas such as Endocrinology, Inhibitory postsynaptic potential, Internal medicine, Receptive field and Anatomy as well as Spinal cord.

His most cited work include:

  • Neuronal plasticity: increasing the gain in pain. (3058 citations)
  • Persistent postsurgical pain: risk factors and prevention (2542 citations)
  • Central sensitization: Implications for the diagnosis and treatment of pain (2339 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Neuroscience, Spinal cord, Anesthesia, Nociceptor and Anatomy. Clifford J. Woolf has included themes like Peripheral nerve injury and Nociception in his Neuroscience study. His Spinal cord study combines topics in areas such as Electrophysiology, Endocrinology, Central nervous system, Internal medicine and Receptive field.

His Anesthesia research also works with subjects such as

  • Hyperalgesia that connect with fields like Inflammation,
  • Stimulation that connect with fields like Excitatory postsynaptic potential. Clifford J. Woolf works mostly in the field of Nociceptor, limiting it down to concerns involving Pharmacology and, occasionally, Receptor. The study incorporates disciplines such as Axotomy and Nerve injury in addition to Sciatic nerve.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (44.14%)
  • Spinal cord (21.39%)
  • Anesthesia (17.66%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Neuroscience (44.14%)
  • Sensory system (15.79%)
  • Cell biology (14.94%)

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

His primary areas of study are Neuroscience, Sensory system, Cell biology, Nociceptor and Pharmacology. His work deals with themes such as Transcription factor, Disease and Nociception, which intersect with Neuroscience. Clifford J. Woolf has researched Sensory system in several fields, including Neuropathic pain, Nerve injury, Inflammatory response and Airway.

In Cell biology, Clifford J. Woolf works on issues like Embryonic stem cell, which are connected to Developmental biology and Embryogenesis. His Nociceptor study combines topics in areas such as Inflammation, TRPV1 and Noxious stimulus. His Pharmacology research incorporates themes from Neurogenic inflammation, Hyperalgesia and Ion channel.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Breaking barriers to novel analgesic drug development (128 citations)
  • ALS-implicated protein TDP-43 sustains levels of STMN2, a mediator of motor neuron growth and repair (94 citations)
  • Substance P activates Mas-related G protein–coupled receptors to induce itch (70 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Neuron

His primary areas of investigation include Cell biology, Analgesic, Neuroscience, Sensory system and Immune system. His research in Cell biology intersects with topics in Cell culture, Tetrahydrobiopterin, Autoimmunity and Allergic inflammation. His work carried out in the field of Neuroscience brings together such families of science as Gene expression profiling, Downregulation and upregulation and Synaptophysin.

His Sensory system research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Acquired immune system, Neuropathic pain, Somatosensory system and Immunity. His Neuropathic pain research includes themes of Secondary somatosensory cortex, Sensory stimulation therapy, Sensory processing and Spinal cord. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Immune system, Intracellular, Cell growth, Noxious stimulus and Tissue homeostasis is strongly linked to Inflammation.
