Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Cancer
  • Internal medicine
  • Surgery

Donald L. Morton mostly deals with Melanoma, Surgery, Metastasis, Pathology and Lymphadenectomy. His Melanoma research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Cancer, Internal medicine, Lymph node, Oncology and Sentinel node. His research in Cancer intersects with topics in Immunology, Psychiatry, Proportional hazards model and Cutaneous melanoma.

His Sentinel node study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Sentinel lymph node, Biopsy, H&E stain and Micrometastasis. He has researched Surgery in several fields, including Clinical trial and Primary tumor. His research integrates issues of Cancer research, Normal tissue, Monoclonal antibody and Antigen in his study of Pathology.

His most cited work include:

  • Technical details of intraoperative lymphatic mapping for early stage melanoma. (3674 citations)
  • Final Version of 2009 AJCC Melanoma Staging and Classification (3479 citations)
  • Lymphatic Mapping and Sentinel Lymphadenectomy for Breast Cancer (2442 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Melanoma, Surgery, Antigen, Immunology and Internal medicine. His study in Melanoma is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Cancer, Metastasis, Immunotherapy and Pathology. His Surgery research includes elements of Lymphadenectomy, Lymph node, Radiology and Sentinel node.

In his study, Cell culture is strongly linked to Molecular biology, which falls under the umbrella field of Antigen. Donald L. Morton interconnects Cytotoxic T cell, Cell and Ganglioside in the investigation of issues within Immunology. As part of one scientific family, he deals mainly with the area of Internal medicine, narrowing it down to issues related to the Oncology, and often Stage and Proportional hazards model.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Melanoma (60.27%)
  • Surgery (26.13%)
  • Antigen (25.68%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2003-2017)?

  • Melanoma (60.27%)
  • Internal medicine (22.66%)
  • Surgery (26.13%)

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

Donald L. Morton mainly investigates Melanoma, Internal medicine, Surgery, Oncology and Cancer research. His work carried out in the field of Melanoma brings together such families of science as Cancer, Metastasis, Survival rate, Pathology and Sentinel node. He studied Cancer and Immunology that intersect with Ganglioside.

In his work, Lymphatic metastasis is strongly intertwined with Radiology, which is a subfield of Sentinel node. His Surgery study incorporates themes from Sentinel lymph node and Lymphadenectomy, Lymph node. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Stage, Adjuvant therapy and Melanoma Vaccine.

Between 2003 and 2017, his most popular works were:

  • Final Version of 2009 AJCC Melanoma Staging and Classification (3479 citations)
  • A landscape of driver mutations in melanoma (1701 citations)
  • Sentinel-node biopsy or nodal observation in melanoma (1440 citations)

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

  • Cancer
  • Internal medicine
  • Surgery

His primary scientific interests are in Melanoma, Surgery, Metastasis, Sentinel node and Internal medicine. His studies in Melanoma integrate themes in fields like Survival rate, Pathology and Lymphadenectomy. His Surgery research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Clinical trial and Lymph node.

His Metastasis research incorporates themes from Mutation and Univariate analysis. The various areas that he examines in his Sentinel node study include Sentinel lymph node, Biopsy and Multicenter trial. His studies deal with areas such as Gastroenterology and Oncology as well as Internal medicine.
