Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Endocrinology
  • Gene

Jan Fahrenkrug mostly deals with Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Vasoactive intestinal peptide, Neuropeptide and Pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating peptide. His study involves Suprachiasmatic nucleus, Peptide PHI, Retinohypothalamic tract, Calcitonin gene-related peptide and Galanin, a branch of Internal medicine. His work is connected to Stimulation, Hypothalamus, Atropine, Acetylcholine and Circadian rhythm, as a part of Endocrinology.

His Vasoactive intestinal peptide research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Blood flow, Somatostatin, Radioimmunoassay, Peptide hormone and Vasodilation. His study in Neuropeptide is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Peripheral nervous system, Esophagus and Nervous system. His research in Pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating peptide intersects with topics in Cyclase, In situ hybridization, Neurotoxin, Nerve injury and Secretin.

His most cited work include:

  • Primary sensory neurons of the rat showing calcitonin gene-related peptide immunoreactivity and their relation to substance P-, somatostatin-, galanin-, vasoactive intestinal polypeptide- and cholecystokinin-immunoreactive ganglion cells. (645 citations)
  • Localization of vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP) to central and peripheral neurons (536 citations)
  • Distribution of vasoactive intestinal polypeptide in the rat and mouse brain (444 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Vasoactive intestinal peptide, Neuropeptide and Circadian rhythm. His research in Radioimmunoassay, Secretion, Vasodilation, Peptide hormone and Neurotransmitter are components of Internal medicine. His Endocrinology study deals with Pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating peptide intersecting with Cyclase.

His Vasoactive intestinal peptide study incorporates themes from Molecular biology, Calcitonin gene-related peptide and Peptide. His Neuropeptide study combines topics in areas such as Central nervous system and In situ hybridization. Jan Fahrenkrug interconnects Atropine and Acetylcholine in the investigation of issues within Stimulation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (76.09%)
  • Endocrinology (74.02%)
  • Vasoactive intestinal peptide (53.33%)

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

  • Endocrinology (74.02%)
  • Internal medicine (76.09%)
  • Circadian rhythm (13.56%)

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

Endocrinology, Internal medicine, Circadian rhythm, Suprachiasmatic nucleus and Vasoactive intestinal peptide are his primary areas of study. Endocrinology and Receptor are frequently intertwined in his study. Many of his studies on Internal medicine involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as In situ hybridization.

Jan Fahrenkrug has included themes like Hypothalamus, Wild type and Cell biology in his Circadian rhythm study. His work deals with themes such as PER1, Circadian clock and Endogeny, which intersect with Suprachiasmatic nucleus. His Vasoactive intestinal peptide research incorporates themes from Calcitonin gene-related peptide, Adenylate kinase, Neurotransmitter and Migraine.

Between 2006 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Pharmacology and functions of receptors for vasoactive intestinal peptide and pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide: IUPHAR review 1. (280 citations)
  • Vasoactive intestinal peptide causes marked cephalic vasodilation, but does not induce migraine. (185 citations)
  • Investigation of the pathophysiological mechanisms of migraine attacks induced by pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide-38 (124 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Endocrinology
  • Gene

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Circadian rhythm, Suprachiasmatic nucleus and PER1. His work on Vasoactive intestinal peptide, Receptor, Pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating peptide and Energy homeostasis as part of general Internal medicine study is frequently linked to Genomic imprinting, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. The Vasoactive intestinal peptide study combines topics in areas such as RAR-related orphan receptor alpha, Vasodilation, Huntingtin, Receptor expression and Migraine.

His work carried out in the field of Endocrinology brings together such families of science as Differential display and Gene expression profiling. His research in Circadian rhythm intersects with topics in Hematocrit, Venous blood and Cell biology. His Suprachiasmatic nucleus research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Circadian clock, Melanopsin and Endogeny.
