Awards & Achievements

Fellow of The Academy of Medical Sciences, United Kingdom


What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Parkinson's disease
  • Disease

His primary areas of study are Neuroscience, Parkinson's disease, Internal medicine, Pathology and Putamen. His Prefrontal cortex, Basal ganglia, Supplementary motor area and Dopamine receptor D2 study, which is part of a larger body of work in Neuroscience, is frequently linked to Premotor cortex, bridging the gap between disciplines. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Central nervous system disease, Surgery, Transplantation and Dopaminergic.

His work carried out in the field of Internal medicine brings together such families of science as Endocrinology and Cardiology. As part of the same scientific family, David J. Brooks usually focuses on Pathology, concentrating on Microglia and intersecting with Neuroinflammation, In vivo, Pons and Pathogenesis. As a member of one scientific family, David J. Brooks mostly works in the field of Putamen, focusing on Dopamine and, on occasion, Neurotransmitter.

His most cited work include:

  • Neuroinflammation in Alzheimer's disease (2213 citations)
  • Second consensus statement on the diagnosis of multiple system atrophy (1886 citations)
  • A five-year study of the incidence of dyskinesia in patients with early Parkinson's disease who were treated with ropinirole or levodopa (1307 citations)

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

His main research concerns Neuroscience, Parkinson's disease, Internal medicine, Astrophysics and Pathology. David J. Brooks works mostly in the field of Neuroscience, limiting it down to concerns involving Neuroinflammation and, occasionally, Microglia. His Parkinson's disease research includes themes of Dopaminergic, Dopamine, Central nervous system disease and Putamen.

His research in Internal medicine intersects with topics in Endocrinology, Oncology and Cardiology. His research integrates issues of Positron emission tomography and Magnetic resonance imaging in his study of Pathology. David J. Brooks has included themes like Weak gravitational lensing, Telescope and Dark matter in his Dark energy study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (29.60%)
  • Parkinson's disease (29.30%)
  • Internal medicine (24.44%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Astrophysics (17.12%)
  • Dark energy (12.86%)
  • Galaxy (10.76%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Astrophysics, Dark energy, Galaxy, Redshift and Internal medicine. He combines subjects such as Weak gravitational lensing, Quasar, Baryon and Planck with his study of Dark energy. His Galaxy research incorporates themes from Photometry and Cluster analysis.

His Internal medicine research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Endocrinology and Cardiology. While the research belongs to areas of Cardiology, David J. Brooks spends his time largely on the problem of Amyloid, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Positron emission tomography. His research on Parkinson's disease concerns the broader Pathology.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • First cosmological results using Type Ia supernovae from the Dark Energy Survey: Measurement of the Hubble constant (112 citations)
  • First cosmology results using type Ia supernovae from the Dark Energy Survey: constraints on cosmological parameters (110 citations)
  • First Measurement of the Hubble Constant from a Dark Standard Siren using the Dark Energy Survey Galaxies and the LIGO/Virgo Binary-Black-hole Merger GW170814 (100 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Statistics

David J. Brooks spends much of his time researching Astrophysics, Dark energy, Galaxy, Redshift and Cosmology. Galaxy cluster, Dark matter, Quasar, Galactic halo and Hubble's law are the core of his Astrophysics study. His Dark energy research integrates issues from Weak gravitational lensing, Supernova, Sky and Universe.

David J. Brooks interconnects Photometry, Cluster analysis and Markov chain Monte Carlo in the investigation of issues within Galaxy. His studies deal with areas such as Lens, Methods statistical, Active galactic nucleus and Black hole as well as Redshift. His work focuses on many connections between Cosmology and other disciplines, such as Amplitude, that overlap with his field of interest in COSMIC cancer database.
