1971 - Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Endocrinology

His primary scientific interests are in Purinergic receptor, Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Receptor and Purinergic signalling. His Purinergic receptor study incorporates themes from Signal transduction, Neuroscience, Neurotransmission and Adenosine triphosphate. As a member of one scientific family, Geoffrey Burnstock mostly works in the field of Internal medicine, focusing on Anatomy and, on occasion, Myocyte.

The Receptor study combines topics in areas such as Extracellular and Cell biology. His Purinergic signalling study combines topics in areas such as Purinergic Agonists, Purinergic Antagonists and Pharmacology. He interconnects Adenosine A1 receptor and Purine in the investigation of issues within Adenosine.

His most cited work include:

  • Receptors for Purines and Pyrimidines (3797 citations)
  • NOMENCLATURE AND CLASSIFICATION OF PURINOCEPTORS (1481 citations)
  • Physiology and Pathophysiology of Purinergic Neurotransmission (1261 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Purinergic receptor, Receptor and Adenosine. His studies deal with areas such as Calcitonin gene-related peptide and Adrenergic as well as Endocrinology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Immunology, Signal transduction, Purinergic signalling, Neuroscience and Pharmacology.

His work carried out in the field of Neuroscience brings together such families of science as Autonomic nervous system and Neurotransmission. His work deals with themes such as Extracellular, Cell biology and Molecular biology, which intersect with Receptor. His Adenosine research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Adenosine receptor and Adenosine triphosphate.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (48.75%)
  • Endocrinology (47.31%)
  • Purinergic receptor (25.06%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2006-2020)?

  • Purinergic receptor (25.06%)
  • Purinergic signalling (12.31%)
  • Receptor (24.62%)

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

His main research concerns Purinergic receptor, Purinergic signalling, Receptor, Neuroscience and Internal medicine. His studies in Purinergic receptor integrate themes in fields like Immunology, Adenosine receptor and Pharmacology. His Purinergic signalling research includes themes of Ionotropic effect, Adenosine triphosphate, Neuromodulation, Signal transduction and Metabotropic receptor.

His Receptor research focuses on subjects like Extracellular, which are linked to Nucleotide. The study incorporates disciplines such as Microglia and Neurotransmission in addition to Neuroscience. His biological study deals with issues like Endocrinology, which deal with fields such as Vasoactive intestinal peptide.

Between 2006 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Physiology and Pathophysiology of Purinergic Neurotransmission (1261 citations)
  • Purine and pyrimidine receptors (731 citations)
  • Purinergic signalling in the nervous system: an overview (630 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Enzyme

Geoffrey Burnstock mainly focuses on Purinergic receptor, Purinergic signalling, Receptor, Neuroscience and Internal medicine. His research integrates issues of Interstitial cystitis, Inflammation, Immunology, Stem cell and Pharmacology in his study of Purinergic receptor. His Purinergic signalling study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Neuromodulation, P2Y receptor, Signal transduction and Adenosine.

His Receptor research incorporates themes from Extracellular and Cell biology. His Internal medicine study incorporates themes from Endocrinology and Cardiology. In his research, Sensory nerve is intimately related to Reflex, which falls under the overarching field of Endocrinology.
