Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Internal medicine

Josef M. Penninger mainly focuses on Cell biology, Immunology, Signal transduction, Molecular biology and Apoptosis. His Cell biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in T cell, T-cell receptor, Apoptosis-inducing factor and Programmed cell death. His Autoimmunity, Innate immune system and Antigen study in the realm of Immunology connects with subjects such as Angiotensin-converting enzyme 2.

His Signal transduction study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as CD28 and Kinase, Protein kinase A. Josef M. Penninger combines subjects such as Cell culture, Cytochrome c, Stem cell, Cytotoxic T cell and DNA fragmentation with his study of Molecular biology. His study on PTEN also encompasses disciplines like

  • Cancer research most often made with reference to Protein kinase B,
  • Phosphatidylinositol which connect with Akt/PKB signaling pathway.

His most cited work include:

  • Guidelines for the use and interpretation of assays for monitoring autophagy (3rd edition) (4170 citations)
  • Molecular characterization of mitochondrial apoptosis-inducing factor (3585 citations)
  • OPGL is a key regulator of osteoclastogenesis, lymphocyte development and lymph-node organogenesis (2875 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Cell biology, Internal medicine, Immunology, Endocrinology and Cancer research. His Cell biology research includes elements of T cell, T-cell receptor and Programmed cell death. His study in the field of RANKL, Angiotensin II and Receptor also crosses realms of Angiotensin-converting enzyme 2.

Josef M. Penninger works mostly in the field of RANKL, limiting it down to topics relating to Osteoclast and, in certain cases, Bone resorption, as a part of the same area of interest. His Myocarditis research extends to the thematically linked field of Immunology. His research integrates issues of Carcinogenesis, Cancer and Protein kinase B in his study of Cancer research.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cell biology (42.96%)
  • Internal medicine (23.47%)
  • Immunology (25.39%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Cell biology (42.96%)
  • Internal medicine (23.47%)
  • Endocrinology (19.49%)

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

His main research concerns Cell biology, Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Cancer research and RANKL. His Cell biology research incorporates elements of Inflammation, Cell and Ubiquitin ligase. His studies in Internal medicine integrate themes in fields like Pregnancy and Cardiology.

In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Endocrinology, Renin–angiotensin system, Pharmacology and Kidney is strongly linked to Receptor. His Cancer research study combines topics in areas such as Carcinogenesis, Cancer, Immune system, Signal transduction and Lung cancer. His RANKL research focuses on Osteoclast and how it connects with Bone resorption and Activator.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Guidelines for the use and interpretation of assays for monitoring autophagy (3rd edition) (4170 citations)
  • Molecular mechanisms of cell death: recommendations of the Nomenclature Committee on Cell Death 2018. (1421 citations)
  • Angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) as a SARS-CoV-2 receptor: molecular mechanisms and potential therapeutic target. (992 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Internal medicine

Internal medicine, Cell biology, Cancer research, Receptor and Endocrinology are his primary areas of study. In Internal medicine, Josef M. Penninger works on issues like Cardiology, which are connected to Regeneration, Ligation and Genome-wide association study. Particularly relevant to Signal transduction is his body of work in Cell biology.

His Cancer research study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Cancer, ErbB, Lung cancer and In vivo. His studies deal with areas such as Immunology, Stromal cell and Bone remodeling as well as Receptor. His Endocrinology research includes themes of Osteoclast, AMPK, Starvation response and RANKL.
