Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • DNA

Her primary areas of investigation include Cell biology, Genetics, Embryonic stem cell, Molecular biology and Trophoblast. Her Cell biology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Endocrinology, Angiogenesis and Immunology. Her research on Angiogenesis also deals with topics like

  • Vascular endothelial growth factor which is related to area like Endothelial cell differentiation and Cell signaling,
  • Vasculogenesis which is related to area like Haematopoiesis and Hemangioblast.

Her Embryonic stem cell research integrates issues from Stem cell and Neuroscience. Her study in Molecular biology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Gene expression, In situ hybridization, Transgene, Mutant and Retinoic acid. Her studies examine the connections between Trophoblast and genetics, as well as such issues in Blastocyst, with regards to Trophoblast giant cell differentiation.

Her most cited work include:

  • Failure of blood-island formation and vasculogenesis in Flk-1-deficient mice. (3616 citations)
  • Failure of blood-island formation and vasculogenesis in Flk-1-deficient mice. (3616 citations)
  • Role of the Flt-1 receptor tyrosine kinase in regulating the assembly of vascular endothelium (2433 citations)

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

Janet Rossant mainly focuses on Cell biology, Genetics, Embryonic stem cell, Molecular biology and Stem cell. Janet Rossant has researched Cell biology in several fields, including Trophoblast and Cellular differentiation. Her Gene, Mutant, Regulation of gene expression, Genome and Epiblast investigations are all subjects of Genetics research.

Her Embryonic stem cell study frequently draws connections to other fields, such as Cell culture. Her work deals with themes such as Endothelial stem cell, Adult stem cell and Immunology, which intersect with Stem cell. Her Endoderm research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Gastrulation and Mesoderm.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Cell biology (61.94%)
  • Genetics (43.11%)
  • Embryonic stem cell (29.90%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2011-2021)?

  • Cell biology (61.94%)
  • Embryonic stem cell (29.90%)
  • Stem cell (21.36%)

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

Her primary areas of study are Cell biology, Embryonic stem cell, Stem cell, Genetics and Induced pluripotent stem cell. Her research on Cell biology often connects related topics like Cellular differentiation. Her Embryonic stem cell research includes themes of International Knockout Mouse Consortium, Knockout mouse, Computational biology and Gene regulatory network.

In Stem cell, Janet Rossant works on issues like Neuroscience, which are connected to Human development. The Gene, Mutant, Allele and Signal transduction research she does as part of her general Genetics study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Context, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Phenotype, Internal medicine and Endocrinology.

Between 2011 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Directed differentiation of human pluripotent stem cells into mature airway epithelia expressing functional CFTR protein. (313 citations)
  • Hallmarks of pluripotency (251 citations)
  • The mammalian gene function resource: the international knockout mouse consortium (236 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Genetics

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Cell biology, Genetics, Embryonic stem cell, Stem cell and Induced pluripotent stem cell. Janet Rossant has researched Cell biology in several fields, including Endoderm, Cellular differentiation and Embryoid body. Her Embryo, Blastocyst, Cell type and Cooperativity study in the realm of Genetics interacts with subjects such as Context.

As a part of the same scientific study, Janet Rossant usually deals with the Embryonic stem cell, concentrating on International Knockout Mouse Consortium and frequently concerns with Human genetics, Computational biology, Gene trapping and Function. In general Stem cell study, her work on LGR5 often relates to the realm of Stroma, thereby connecting several areas of interest. She has included themes like Cystic fibrosis, Cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator and Immunology in her Induced pluripotent stem cell study.
