What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Enzyme

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Transferrin, Ferritin, Internal medicine, Endocrinology and Neuroscience. His Transferrin study necessitates a more in-depth grasp of Biochemistry. The Ferritin study combines topics in areas such as Oxidative stress, Neuroglia, Immunology, Microglia and Cell biology.

Red nucleus and Aging brain is closely connected to Human brain in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Internal medicine. His Endocrinology research includes elements of Iron-deficiency anemia, Monoamine neurotransmitter and Iron deficiency. His work on Central nervous system as part of his general Neuroscience study is frequently connected to Iron acquisition, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science.

His most cited work include:

  • Iron, brain ageing and neurodegenerative disorders (1305 citations)
  • Long‐Lasting Neural and Behavioral Effects of Iron Deficiency in Infancy (646 citations)
  • Relationship of iron to oligodendrocytes and myelination. (534 citations)

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

James R. Connor focuses on Internal medicine, Ferritin, Endocrinology, Transferrin and Cell biology. Many of his studies on Internal medicine apply to Oncology as well. His Ferritin study contributes to a more complete understanding of Biochemistry.

James R. Connor has included themes like Anemia, Iron-deficiency anemia and Iron deficiency in his Endocrinology study. His study in Transferrin is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Receptor and Myelin, Central nervous system, Oligodendrocyte. His Cell biology research incorporates elements of Oxidative stress, Cell and Programmed cell death.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (26.92%)
  • Ferritin (24.57%)
  • Endocrinology (22.22%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Cancer research (9.62%)
  • Internal medicine (26.92%)
  • Glioma (6.41%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Cancer research, Internal medicine, Glioma, Pathology and Transferrin. His Internal medicine research also works with subjects such as

  • Endocrinology that intertwine with fields like Neurotoxicity,
  • Oncology together with Gene expression. His study looks at the relationship between Pathology and topics such as Magnetic resonance imaging, which overlap with Myelin.

His Transferrin research includes elements of Cell biology, Cerebrospinal fluid, Iron deficiency and Blood–brain barrier. His studies in Blood–brain barrier integrate themes in fields like Biochemistry and Iron uptake. His Ferritin research extends to the thematically linked field of Transferrin receptor.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Preferential Iron Trafficking Characterizes Glioblastoma Stem-like Cells (125 citations)
  • Evidence-based and consensus clinical practice guidelines for the iron treatment of restless legs syndrome/Willis-Ekbom disease in adults and children: an IRLSSG task force report. (89 citations)
  • Quantitative Susceptibility Mapping of the Midbrain in Parkinson’s Disease (89 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Enzyme

Pathology, Magnetic resonance imaging, Blood–brain barrier, Cell biology and Neuroscience are his primary areas of study. The study incorporates disciplines such as Alzheimer's disease, Myelin and Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis in addition to Magnetic resonance imaging. James R. Connor combines subjects such as Iron transport, Deferoxamine, Transferrin receptor, Transferrin and Dopamine with his study of Blood–brain barrier.

His Transferrin research focuses on Cerebrospinal fluid and how it connects with Inflammation and Mitochondrial DNA. James R. Connor frequently studies issues relating to Biochemistry and Cell biology. His Neuroscience research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Pathophysiology and Neurodegeneration.
