2009 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)
Denis Wirtz mainly investigates Cell biology, Cytoskeleton, Actin, Biophysics and Microrheology. His Cell biology research includes themes of Cell and Cell adhesion. The Cytoskeleton study combines topics in areas such as Mechanics, Nuclear protein, Microtubule and Effector.
His Actin research incorporates themes from Protein filament, Actin remodeling and Myosin. His study looks at the intersection of Biophysics and topics like Analytical chemistry with Diffusion, Nanoparticle and Microviscosity. His study in Microrheology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Diffusing-wave spectroscopy and Optics, Microscopy.
Denis Wirtz focuses on Cell biology, Biophysics, Cytoskeleton, Actin and Cell. His studies deal with areas such as Cell migration and Cell adhesion as well as Cell biology. Denis Wirtz focuses mostly in the field of Cell migration, narrowing it down to matters related to Extracellular matrix and, in some cases, Cancer cell, Cancer research and Breast cancer.
His research integrates issues of Adhesion, Nanotechnology, Force spectroscopy and Microrheology, Viscoelasticity in his study of Biophysics. His research in Cytoskeleton tackles topics such as Nuclear lamina which are related to areas like Lamin and Cell nucleus. His Actin research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Actin cytoskeleton, Actin remodeling, Nucleus, Protein filament and Microtubule.
Denis Wirtz mostly deals with Cell biology, Cell, Cancer research, Cancer and Biophysics. His Cell biology research incorporates elements of CD44 and Cell division. His research related to Cytoskeleton and Cell migration might be considered part of Cell.
The concepts of his Cytoskeleton study are interwoven with issues in Cytoplasm, Intracellular and Actin. His Cancer research research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Cancer cell, Carcinogenesis, Metastasis, Cell cycle and Breast cancer. Denis Wirtz is involved in the study of Biophysics that focuses on Myosin in particular.
Biophysics, Cell biology, Signal transduction, Cancer research and Cell culture are his primary areas of study. His study explores the link between Biophysics and topics such as Cell adhesion that cross with problems in Cytometry, Rheometry, Viscosity, Microrheology and Rheology. His Cell biology research includes elements of Cytoskeleton and Cell fate determination.
His Signal transduction research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Mechanotransduction, Cell migration and Cell growth. His Cancer research study also includes fields such as
