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

His primary areas of investigation include Actuator, Torque, Glycosylation, Robot and Control theory. His Actuator research is included under the broader classification of Artificial intelligence. The study incorporates disciplines such as Series and parallel circuits, Ankle, Control and Simulation, Exoskeleton in addition to Torque.

His Glycosylation research incorporates themes from Endocrinology, Congenital disorder of glycosylation, Golgi apparatus, Internal medicine and Glycan. His Robot research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Wearable computer, Efficient energy use and Human–computer interaction. His work deals with themes such as Stiffness, Speed reduction, Electric motor and Transmission system, which intersect with Control theory.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • International clinical guidelines for the management of phosphomannomutase 2-congenital disorders of glycosylation: Diagnosis, treatment and follow up. (28 citations)
  • Clinical, neuroradiological, and biochemical features of SLC35A2-CDG patients. (19 citations)
  • Desialylation of platelets induced by Von Willebrand Factor is a novel mechanism of platelet clearance in dengue. (15 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Enzyme

Dirk Lefeber focuses on Glycosylation, Robot, Actuator, Exoskeleton and Endocrinology. The concepts of his Glycosylation study are interwoven with issues in Receptor, Computational biology, Congenital disorder of glycosylation and Glycan. Dirk Lefeber has included themes like Control theory and Human–computer interaction in his Robot study.

His study in Actuator is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Control theory and Torque. His Torque research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Control engineering, Simulation and Prosthesis. The Endocrinology study combines topics in areas such as Internal medicine and Western blot.
