Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • DNA

Jonathan M.W. Slack mostly deals with Cell biology, Xenopus, Embryo, Mesoderm and Fibroblast growth factor. His studies deal with areas such as Genetics, Cellular differentiation and Anatomy as well as Cell biology. His studies in Xenopus integrate themes in fields like Xbra, Molecular biology and Protein kinase A.

His work deals with themes such as Evolutionary biology, Andrology, Morphogen and Botany, which intersect with Embryo. Jonathan M.W. Slack interconnects Ectoderm and Embryogenesis in the investigation of issues within Mesoderm. His research investigates the connection between Fibroblast growth factor and topics such as GDF1 that intersect with issues in Basic fibroblast growth factor, Morphogenesis and Polarity in embryogenesis.

His most cited work include:

  • Developmental biology of the pancreas (824 citations)
  • Mesoderm induction in early Xenopus embryos by heparin-binding growth factors (811 citations)
  • The zootype and the phylotypic stage. (494 citations)

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

Jonathan M.W. Slack spends much of his time researching Cell biology, Xenopus, Anatomy, Embryo and Fibroblast growth factor. His work carried out in the field of Cell biology brings together such families of science as Genetics, Internal medicine, Cellular differentiation and Mesoderm. His research integrates issues of Embryonic stem cell, Endocrinology, Pancreas and Transdifferentiation, Stem cell in his study of Cellular differentiation.

His Mesoderm research incorporates themes from Ectoderm, Embryogenesis, Neurula and Blastula. His Xenopus study which covers Molecular biology that intersects with Messenger RNA. His Anatomy research integrates issues from Endoderm, Fate mapping, Metaplasia, Notochord and Neural plate.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cell biology (54.07%)
  • Xenopus (36.36%)
  • Anatomy (26.32%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2008-2021)?

  • Cell biology (54.07%)
  • Reprogramming (7.66%)
  • Anatomy (26.32%)

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

Cell biology, Reprogramming, Anatomy, Cellular differentiation and Induced pluripotent stem cell are his primary areas of study. Jonathan M.W. Slack studies Cell biology, namely Embryo. His Anatomy study incorporates themes from Epithelium, Xenopus, Metaplasia, CDX2 and Regeneration.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Blastocoel, Gene delivery and Green fluorescent protein in addition to Xenopus. His study in Cellular differentiation is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Molecular biology and Transdifferentiation. Jonathan M.W. Slack has researched Induced pluripotent stem cell in several fields, including Stem cell, Cell division and Somatic cell.

Between 2008 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • In vivo reprogramming of Sox9+ cells in the liver to insulin-secreting ducts (112 citations)
  • Reprogramming of pancreatic exocrine cells towards a beta (β) cell character using Pdx1, Ngn3 and MafA. (84 citations)
  • Transgene-Free Disease-Specific Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells from Patients with Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes (67 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Genetics

His scientific interests lie mostly in Cell biology, Induced pluripotent stem cell, Cellular differentiation, Reprogramming and Cell type. Jonathan M.W. Slack is involved in the study of Cell biology that focuses on Regeneration in particular. His research in Regeneration intersects with topics in Sonic hedgehog, Xenopus, Transplantation and Progenitor cell.

His Induced pluripotent stem cell research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Stem cell, Cell division and Somatic cell. His Cellular differentiation study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as PDX1, Transdifferentiation and Pancreas. His Cell type study combines topics in areas such as Endoderm, Molecular biology, Lateral inhibition, Mesoderm and Embryoid body.
