What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Neuroscience

His primary scientific interests are in Neuroscience, Neurogenesis, Cell biology, Dentate gyrus and Neural stem cell. His research brings together the fields of Anatomy and Neuroscience. His Neurogenesis research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Granule cell, Bromodeoxyuridine, Olfactory bulb, Subgranular zone and Neuropoiesis.

The concepts of his Cell biology study are interwoven with issues in Immunology, Embryonic stem cell, Cell and Cellular differentiation. In his work, Doublecortin is strongly intertwined with NeuN, which is a subfield of Dentate gyrus. Fred H. Gage works mostly in the field of Neural stem cell, limiting it down to topics relating to Neurosphere and, in certain cases, Subventricular zone.

His most cited work include:

  • Neurogenesis in the adult human hippocampus (5137 citations)
  • In Vivo Gene Delivery and Stable Transduction of Nondividing Cells by a Lentiviral Vector (4404 citations)
  • Mammalian neural stem cells. (4189 citations)

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

Fred H. Gage mainly investigates Neuroscience, Cell biology, Neurogenesis, Hippocampal formation and Hippocampus. His Neuroscience study combines topics in areas such as Induced pluripotent stem cell and Neural stem cell. His research in Neural stem cell intersects with topics in Neurosphere and Adult stem cell.

His study explores the link between Cell biology and topics such as Cellular differentiation that cross with problems in Molecular biology. His study in Neurogenesis is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Olfactory bulb, Neuroplasticity, Neuron and Neuropoiesis. His studies deal with areas such as Lesion and Anatomy as well as Hippocampus.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (46.87%)
  • Cell biology (21.49%)
  • Neurogenesis (18.81%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Neuroscience (46.87%)
  • Induced pluripotent stem cell (9.25%)
  • Cell biology (21.49%)

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

Fred H. Gage spends much of his time researching Neuroscience, Induced pluripotent stem cell, Cell biology, Neurogenesis and Neural stem cell. His Disease research extends to the thematically linked field of Neuroscience. His Induced pluripotent stem cell research incorporates elements of Phenotype, Reprogramming, Stem cell and Cellular differentiation.

His Cell biology course of study focuses on Gene and Computational biology and Genome instability. The Neurogenesis study combines topics in areas such as Neuroplasticity, Cognition and Environmental enrichment. The various areas that Fred H. Gage examines in his Neural stem cell study include Progenitor cell, microRNA, Cellular neuroscience and Autism.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Adult Neurogenesis in the Hippocampus: From Stem Cells to Behavior (477 citations)
  • An environment-dependent transcriptional network specifies human microglia identity (474 citations)
  • Neurogenesis in the Adult Hippocampus (473 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • DNA

Fred H. Gage mostly deals with Neuroscience, Induced pluripotent stem cell, Neurogenesis, Genetics and Neural stem cell. His work in Dentate gyrus, Hippocampus, Hippocampal formation, Human brain and Electrophysiology are all subfields of Neuroscience research. His Induced pluripotent stem cell research includes elements of Reprogramming, Receptor, Cellular differentiation and Autism spectrum disorder.

His Neurogenesis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Neurotrophic factors, Neuroplasticity, Cognition and Anatomy. His research investigates the connection between Genetics and topics such as Cell biology that intersect with issues in Gene expression and Genetically modified mouse. The study incorporates disciplines such as Cellular neuroscience, Progenitor cell, Phenotype, Neuron and Gene regulatory network in addition to Neural stem cell.
