Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Enzyme
  • Cell membrane
  • Biochemistry

His main research concerns Cell biology, Golgi apparatus, Biochemistry, Endosome and Endoplasmic reticulum. His Cell biology research includes themes of Vesicle and Lipid bilayer fusion. The various areas that he examines in his Golgi apparatus study include Molecular biology, Membrane glycoproteins, Membrane protein and Cell membrane.

His work on Baby hamster kidney cell, Membrane transport and Mitochondrion as part of his general Biochemistry study is frequently connected to Sorting and assembly machinery and TIM/TOM complex, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. His studies in Endosome integrate themes in fields like Endocytic cycle, Endocytosis and Cisterna. His Endoplasmic reticulum research integrates issues from Autophagy, Vesicular stomatitis virus, Omegasome and Autophagosome membrane.

His most cited work include:

  • The Empire Writes Back: Theory and Practice in Post-Colonial Literatures (1392 citations)
  • Autophagosome formation from membrane compartments enriched in phosphatidylinositol 3-phosphate and dynamically connected to the endoplasmic reticulum (1276 citations)
  • The trans Golgi network: sorting at the exit site of the Golgi complex. (1019 citations)

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

Gareth Griffiths focuses on Cell biology, Phagosome, Golgi apparatus, Endosome and Biochemistry. Gareth Griffiths regularly links together related areas like Membrane protein in his Cell biology studies. His Phagosome research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Macrophage and Latex beads.

Particularly relevant to Secretory pathway is his body of work in Golgi apparatus. Lysosome is closely connected to Endocytic cycle in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Endosome. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Virus and Molecular biology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cell biology (41.64%)
  • Phagosome (13.44%)
  • Golgi apparatus (13.44%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2020)?

  • History of religions (6.56%)
  • Cell biology (41.64%)
  • Religious studies (4.92%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include History of religions, Cell biology, Religious studies, Microbiology and Anthropology. The concepts of his History of religions study are interwoven with issues in Ethnology, Ethnography, Classics, Bogle and Ancient history. He works in the field of Cell biology, focusing on Endosome in particular.

His Religious studies research incorporates themes from Vision, Theology and Point. His Microbiology research incorporates elements of Human pathogen, Immune system, Intracellular parasite and Mycobacterium tuberculosis. His work carried out in the field of Anthropology brings together such families of science as Ordination, Gender studies and Negotiation.

Between 2012 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Post-Colonial Studies: The Key Concepts (621 citations)
  • Poly(lactide-co-glycolide)-rifampicin nanoparticles efficiently clear Mycobacterium bovis BCG infection in macrophages and remain membrane-bound in phago-lysosomes. (79 citations)
  • Activation of Ran GTPase by a Legionella Effector Promotes Microtubule Polymerization, Pathogen Vacuole Motility and Infection (68 citations)

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

  • Enzyme
  • Cell membrane
  • Biochemistry

Gareth Griffiths mainly focuses on Cell biology, Microbiology, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Macrophage and Immune system. His work on Lysosome expands to the thematically related Cell biology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Endocytic cycle and Lipid bilayer fusion in addition to Lysosome.

His studies deal with areas such as Human pathogen, Intracellular parasite and Cytosol as well as Microbiology. His study in Mycobacterium tuberculosis is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both In vitro, Lymphatic system and Virology. The Phagocytosis study combines topics in areas such as Context, Wiskott–Aldrich syndrome protein, Actin-binding protein and Mycobacterium smegmatis.
