Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Enzyme
  • Calcium

His primary areas of investigation include Internal medicine, Myocyte, Endocrinology, Calcium and Endoplasmic reticulum. Donald M. Bers interconnects Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase and Cardiology in the investigation of issues within Internal medicine. His work in Myocyte tackles topics such as Ryanodine receptor which are related to areas like ATPase and Kinetics.

His studies in Endocrinology integrate themes in fields like Patch clamp, Phospholamban and Ion transporter. His studies deal with areas such as Electrophysiology, Extracellular, Biophysics, Lagomorpha and Intracellular as well as Calcium. The study incorporates disciplines such as Calcium metabolism, Cardiac muscle, Calcium signaling and Cytosol in addition to Endoplasmic reticulum.

His most cited work include:

  • Cardiac excitation–contraction coupling (3289 citations)
  • Excitation-Contraction Coupling and Cardiac Contractile Force. (1631 citations)
  • Calcium cycling and signaling in cardiac myocytes. (920 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Myocyte, Biophysics and Calcium. His study in Internal medicine is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase and Cardiology. His Endocrinology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Phospholamban and Intracellular.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Calcium metabolism, Na+/K+-ATPase, Endoplasmic reticulum and Calcium signaling. His Biophysics research includes elements of Biochemistry, Coupling, Ventricular myocytes and Cytosol. His Calcium study combines topics in areas such as Extracellular, Contraction, Caffeine, Lagomorpha and Muscle contraction.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (49.56%)
  • Endocrinology (42.54%)
  • Myocyte (40.35%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Internal medicine (49.56%)
  • Cell biology (17.54%)
  • Endocrinology (42.54%)

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

Donald M. Bers spends much of his time researching Internal medicine, Cell biology, Endocrinology, Myocyte and Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase. Internal medicine is closely attributed to Cardiology in his research. When carried out as part of a general Endocrinology research project, his work on Diabetes mellitus, High glucose and Pressure overload is frequently linked to work in Leak, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study.

His Myocyte research includes themes of Biophysics, Ranolazine, Intracellular, Skeletal muscle and Contractility. His Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase research incorporates themes from Stimulation and Diabetic cardiomyopathy. His Ryanodine receptor study is concerned with the larger field of Endoplasmic reticulum.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Patient-Specific and Genome-Edited Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell–Derived Cardiomyocytes Elucidate Single-Cell Phenotype of Brugada Syndrome (106 citations)
  • FRET biosensor uncovers cAMP nano-domains at β-adrenergic targets that dictate precise tuning of cardiac contractility. (82 citations)
  • GRAM domain proteins specialize functionally distinct ER-PM contact sites in human cells (52 citations)

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

  • Enzyme
  • Internal medicine
  • Biochemistry

His scientific interests lie mostly in Internal medicine, Cell biology, Myocyte, Endocrinology and Biophysics. He combines subjects such as Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase, Phosphorylation and Cardiology with his study of Internal medicine. His Myocyte study frequently intersects with other fields, such as Homeostasis.

His work in the fields of Endocrinology, such as Diabetes mellitus, Pressure overload and Oxidative stress, overlaps with other areas such as Conditional gene knockout and Ex vivo. The various areas that Donald M. Bers examines in his Biophysics study include Ryanodine receptor, Endoplasmic reticulum and Calcium. His Calcium study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Depolarization and Intracellular.
