1965 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Surgery
  • Immune system

His primary areas of study are Transplantation, Immunology, Xenotransplantation, Antibody and Antigen. Particularly relevant to Heart transplantation is his body of work in Transplantation. His study looks at the relationship between Heart transplantation and fields such as Methylprednisolone, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.

He interconnects Baboon and Kidney transplantation in the investigation of issues within Immunology. His Xenotransplantation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Thrombotic microangiopathy, Transgene, Allotransplantation, Organ transplantation and Islet. David K. C. Cooper has included themes like Molecular biology, Cytotoxic T cell, Alpha and Cytotoxicity in his Antibody study.

His most cited work include:

  • Heart transplantation in baboons using alpha1,3-galactosyltransferase gene-knockout pigs as donors: initial experience. (556 citations)
  • Heart transplantation in baboons using alpha1,3-galactosyltransferase gene-knockout pigs as donors: initial experience. (556 citations)
  • Marked prolongation of porcine renal xenograft survival in baboons through the use of α1,3-galactosyltransferase gene-knockout donors and the cotransplantation of vascularized thymic tissue (499 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Transplantation, Xenotransplantation, Immunology, Antibody and Internal medicine. David K. C. Cooper specializes in Transplantation, namely Heart transplantation. The Xenotransplantation study combines topics in areas such as Clinical trial, Kidney, Intensive care medicine, Allotransplantation and Organ transplantation.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Peripheral blood mononuclear cell, Thrombotic microangiopathy and Baboon. His Antibody research includes themes of Molecular biology, Cytotoxic T cell, Antigen and Cytotoxicity. His Internal medicine research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Gastroenterology, Endocrinology and Cardiology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Transplantation (42.15%)
  • Xenotransplantation (39.92%)
  • Immunology (36.47%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Xenotransplantation (39.92%)
  • Transplantation (42.15%)
  • Immunology (36.47%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Xenotransplantation, Transplantation, Immunology, Immune system and Clinical trial. The study incorporates disciplines such as Kidney, Antigen, Intensive care medicine, Allotransplantation and Antibody in addition to Xenotransplantation. His research in Antibody intersects with topics in Peripheral blood mononuclear cell and Flow cytometry.

The concepts of his Transplantation study are interwoven with issues in Bioinformatics and Islet. His Immunology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Transgene, Baboon and Heart transplantation. David K. C. Cooper interconnects Genetically engineered and Disease in the investigation of issues within Clinical trial.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Pig kidney graft survival in a baboon for 136 days: longest life‐supporting organ graft survival to date (125 citations)
  • The role of genetically engineered pigs in xenotransplantation research. (121 citations)
  • Pig-to-monkey islet xenotransplantation using multi-transgenic pigs. (101 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Surgery
  • Immune system

His primary areas of investigation include Xenotransplantation, Transplantation, Immunology, Immune system and Antibody. His work carried out in the field of Xenotransplantation brings together such families of science as Clinical trial, Baboon, Allotransplantation, Kidney and Islet. His Transplantation study is associated with Surgery.

David K. C. Cooper combines subjects such as Peripheral blood mononuclear cell, Thrombotic microangiopathy and Heart transplantation with his study of Immunology. His Immune system research incorporates elements of Andrology, In vitro and Heart valve. His work on IgG binding as part of general Antibody research is often related to N-Glycolylneuraminic acid, thus linking different fields of science.
