Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Biochemistry

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Mucin, Immunology, Biochemistry, Glycoprotein and Population. His Mucin research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Antiserum, Microbiology, Respiratory system and Nematode infection. The Innate immune system research he does as part of his general Immunology study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Sputum, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science.

In his study, Amino acid is strongly linked to Molecular biology, which falls under the umbrella field of Biochemistry. He integrates many fields, such as Population, Astronomy, Astrophysics, Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment, Fast radio burst and Virology, in his works. His study in the fields of Pulsar, Galactic plane, Galaxy and High latitude under the domain of Astronomy overlaps with other disciplines such as Coincident.

His most cited work include:

  • A population of fast radio bursts at cosmological distances. (878 citations)
  • A population of fast radio bursts at cosmological distances. (878 citations)
  • Structure and Function of the Polymeric Mucins in Airways Mucus (547 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Mucin, Immunology, Biochemistry, Glycoprotein and Microbiology. In his articles, David J. Thornton combines various disciplines, including Mucin and Sputum. David J. Thornton has included themes like Lung and Airway in his Immunology study.

As a member of one scientific family, David J. Thornton mostly works in the field of Biochemistry, focusing on Antiserum and, on occasion, Polyclonal antibodies. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Epitope, Antibody and Agarose gel electrophoresis. His Goblet cell study combines topics in areas such as Innate immune system and Immune system.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Mucin (53.85%)
  • Immunology (23.98%)
  • Biochemistry (21.27%)

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

  • Mucin (53.85%)
  • Immunology (23.98%)
  • Immune system (6.79%)

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

David J. Thornton spends much of his time researching Mucin, Immunology, Immune system, Mucociliary clearance and Microbiology. His research integrates issues of Biophysics, Goblet cell, Intracellular, Cell biology and Respiratory system in his study of Mucin. His Immunology research focuses on Lung and how it connects with Cytokine, Glycoprotein and Peritoneal cavity.

The concepts of his Mucociliary clearance study are interwoven with issues in Cystic fibrosis and Pathology. While working in this field, David J. Thornton studies both Helminths and Population. In his work, David J. Thornton performs multidisciplinary research in Population and Innate immune system.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The major secreted protein of the whipworm parasite tethers to matrix and inhibits interleukin-13 function. (64 citations)
  • Mucins: the frontline defence of the lung (54 citations)
  • The lung environment controls alveolar macrophage metabolism and responsiveness in type 2 inflammation. (49 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Biochemistry

His primary scientific interests are in Mucin, Immunology, Microbiology, Lung and Cytokine. His studies deal with areas such as Exacerbation, Goblet cell, Submucosal glands, Mucociliary clearance and Video microscopy as well as Mucin. His work on Innate immune system and Asthma as part of general Immunology research is frequently linked to Sputum, bridging the gap between disciplines.

Along with Innate immune system, other disciplines of study including Population and Proteases are integrated into his research. His studies in Microbiology integrate themes in fields like Vitellogenin and Antibody. As a part of the same scientific study, he usually deals with the Lung, concentrating on Inflammation and frequently concerns with Cell biology, Respiratory disease, Homeostasis, Glycoprotein and Motile cilium.
