Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • DNA

Fibrillogenesis, Fibril, Matrix, Extracellular matrix and Cell biology are his primary areas of study. His Fibrillogenesis study frequently intersects with other fields, such as Molecular biology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Tendon, Anatomy and Collagen, type I, alpha 1 in addition to Fibril.

His Collagen, type I, alpha 1 research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Type I collagen and Type IV collagen. In his study, High voltage electron microscopy and Function is inextricably linked to Extracellular, which falls within the broad field of Extracellular matrix. His research integrates issues of Wound healing, Dorsal closure, Cell migration and Mutant in his study of Cell biology.

His most cited work include:

  • Altered wound healing in mice lacking a functional osteopontin gene (spp1). (581 citations)
  • Collagen fibrillogenesis in vitro: interaction of types I and V collagen regulates fibril diameter. (482 citations)
  • Biodegradable matrix and methods for producing same (448 citations)

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

David E. Birk mainly focuses on Cell biology, Fibril, Extracellular matrix, Fibrillogenesis and Anatomy. His Cell biology research incorporates themes from Morphogenesis, Biochemistry and Cartilage. His work deals with themes such as Tendon, Matrix, Cornea and Collagen, type I, alpha 1, which intersect with Fibril.

His work focuses on many connections between Tendon and other disciplines, such as Biglycan, that overlap with his field of interest in Wound healing. He has researched Extracellular matrix in several fields, including Extracellular, Molecular biology and Connective tissue, Pathology. His studies deal with areas such as Crystallography and Regulation of gene expression as well as Fibrillogenesis.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cell biology (37.21%)
  • Fibril (34.88%)
  • Extracellular matrix (30.70%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2021)?

  • Cell biology (37.21%)
  • Tendon (21.86%)
  • Pathology (19.07%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Cell biology, Tendon, Pathology, Extracellular matrix and Fibril. His research in Cell biology intersects with topics in Cellular differentiation and Fibrillogenesis. Tendon is the subject of his research, which falls under Anatomy.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Elastin, Biophysics and Collagen, type I, alpha 1. In the field of Extracellular matrix, his study on Decorin and Proteoglycan overlaps with subjects such as Juxtacrine signalling. The Fibril study combines topics in areas such as Ehlers–Danlos syndrome, Matrix, Cornea and Supraspinatus tendon.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The regulatory roles of small leucine-rich proteoglycans in extracellular matrix assembly. (211 citations)
  • Decorin expression is important for age-related changes in tendon structure and mechanical properties. (120 citations)
  • Human limbal biopsy–derived stromal stem cells prevent corneal scarring (115 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • DNA

His primary areas of investigation include Tendon, Cell biology, Pathology, Extracellular matrix and Fibril. His Cell biology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Procollagen peptidase, Cell type and Bone remodeling. The concepts of his Pathology study are interwoven with issues in Keratan sulfate and Stem cell.

David E. Birk combines subjects such as Extracellular, Cornea, Cellular differentiation and Connective tissue with his study of Extracellular matrix. His work carried out in the field of Fibril brings together such families of science as Matrix, Anatomy and Decorin. In his work, Extracellular matrix assembly, Lumican and Collagen, type I, alpha 1 is strongly intertwined with Fibrillogenesis, which is a subfield of Matrix.
