Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Cancer

His scientific interests lie mostly in Immunology, Internal medicine, Gut flora, Microbiology and Inflammatory bowel disease. His Immunology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Crohn's disease, Disease and Ulcerative colitis. His work carried out in the field of Internal medicine brings together such families of science as Gastroenterology, Carriage and Endocrinology.

His Gut flora research includes themes of Microbiome, Ecology, Obesity, Bacteria and Physiology. The concepts of his Microbiology study are interwoven with issues in Probiotic, Lactobacillus salivarius, Bifidobacterium breve, Bifidobacterium and Bacteroides. His Inflammatory bowel disease research integrates issues from Human gastrointestinal tract, Chronic bronchitis, Restriction fragment length polymorphism and Immunopathology.

His most cited work include:

  • Gut microbiota composition correlates with diet and health in the elderly (1768 citations)
  • The gut flora as a forgotten organ (1657 citations)
  • Lactobacillus and bifidobacterium in irritable bowel syndrome: Symptom responses and relationship to cytokine profiles (1112 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Immunology, Internal medicine, Inflammatory bowel disease, Gastroenterology and Gut flora. His Immunology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Crohn's disease, Disease and Microbiology. His Microbiology research includes elements of Probiotic, Lactobacillus salivarius, Bacteria and Bifidobacterium.

His research brings together the fields of Endocrinology and Internal medicine. Inflammatory bowel disease connects with themes related to Ulcerative colitis in his study. His study brings together the fields of Microbiome and Gut flora.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (32.30%)
  • Internal medicine (28.37%)
  • Inflammatory bowel disease (18.59%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2021)?

  • Gut flora (13.71%)
  • Internal medicine (28.37%)
  • Immunology (32.30%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Gut flora, Internal medicine, Immunology, Microbiome and Microbiology. His Gut flora research incorporates themes from Disease, Physiology and Metabolomics. In his study, Colorectal cancer is strongly linked to Gastroenterology, which falls under the umbrella field of Internal medicine.

Fergus Shanahan combines subjects such as Cystic fibrosis and Inflammatory bowel disease with his study of Immunology. Fergus Shanahan interconnects Intestinal mucosa, Colitis and Ulcerative colitis in the investigation of issues within Inflammatory bowel disease. His work deals with themes such as Metabolome, Host and Neuroscience, Amygdala, which intersect with Microbiome.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The microbiome-gut-brain axis during early life regulates the hippocampal serotonergic system in a sex-dependent manner (857 citations)
  • Exercise and associated dietary extremes impact on gut microbial diversity (522 citations)
  • Microbiota is essential for social development in the mouse (481 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Cancer

His scientific interests lie mostly in Gut flora, Immunology, Microbiome, Internal medicine and Inflammatory bowel disease. The various areas that Fergus Shanahan examines in his Gut flora study include Disease, Physiology and Microbiology. Immunology is closely attributed to Receptor in his work.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Environmental health, Metabolomics, Exon and Neuroscience, Amygdala in addition to Microbiome. His Internal medicine study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Gastroenterology, Computed tomography, Endocrinology and General surgery. His Inflammatory bowel disease research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Intestinal mucosa, Colitis, Ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease and Dysbiosis.
