Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Genetics

Elaine Fuchs mainly investigates Cell biology, Stem cell, Cellular differentiation, Hair follicle and Epidermis. The study incorporates disciplines such as Genetics, Morphogenesis and Immunology in addition to Cell biology. Her Stem cell research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Endothelial stem cell, Embryonic stem cell, Adult stem cell and Molecular biology.

In her study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Cellular differentiation, Transcription Factor 7-Like 1 Protein is strongly linked to Outer root sheath. She has included themes like Histone, Cell adhesion, Autocrine signalling and Hair follicle morphogenesis in her Hair follicle study. Her Epidermis research focuses on Regulation of gene expression and how it connects with Cell cycle.

Her most cited work include:

  • Defining the epithelial stem cell niche in skin. (1728 citations)
  • Socializing with the Neighbors: Stem Cells and Their Niche (1584 citations)
  • Intermediate filaments: structure, dynamics, function, and disease. (1286 citations)

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

Her main research concerns Cell biology, Stem cell, Cellular differentiation, Keratin and Hair follicle. Her Cell biology research incorporates elements of Morphogenesis, Immunology and Cytoskeleton. Her Stem cell research includes themes of Niche, Cancer research, Embryonic stem cell, Adult stem cell and Regeneration.

The Cellular differentiation study which covers Transcription factor that intersects with Chromatin. The concepts of her Keratin study are interwoven with issues in Keratin 6A, Intermediate filament and Molecular biology. She combines subjects such as Wnt signaling pathway and Signal transduction with her study of Hair follicle.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Cell biology (63.85%)
  • Stem cell (34.85%)
  • Cellular differentiation (18.83%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Cell biology (63.85%)
  • Stem cell (34.85%)
  • Neuroscience (4.11%)

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

Her primary areas of investigation include Cell biology, Stem cell, Neuroscience, Cancer research and Hair follicle. She works in the field of Cell biology, focusing on Progenitor cell in particular. Her work carried out in the field of Progenitor cell brings together such families of science as Cell and Immunology.

Her Stem cell research incorporates themes from Niche, Homeostasis, Inflammation, Immune system and Regeneration. Her Cancer research research includes elements of Immune checkpoint, Cancer, Carcinogenesis, Cancer immunotherapy and Immunotherapy. Her research in Hair follicle intersects with topics in Epidermis and Melanocyte.

Between 2016 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Defining trained immunity and its role in health and disease (401 citations)
  • Inflammatory memory sensitizes skin epithelial stem cells to tissue damage (225 citations)
  • Translation from unconventional 5′ start sites drives tumour initiation (196 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Cancer

Elaine Fuchs focuses on Stem cell, Cell biology, Regeneration, Immunity and Hair follicle. Her study in Stem cell is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Niche, Cellular differentiation, Homeostasis, Immunology and Chromatin. Elaine Fuchs has researched Cellular differentiation in several fields, including Spindle apparatus, Cell growth, Mitosis, Histone and Genetic screen.

Elaine Fuchs does research in Cell biology, focusing on Progenitor cell specifically. Her work in Progenitor cell tackles topics such as Morphogenesis which are related to areas like Mesenchymal stem cell. Her work deals with themes such as TMC6, Keratinocyte, Molecular biology, TMC8 and Neuroscience, which intersect with Immunity.
