Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Neuron
  • Enzyme

His primary areas of investigation include Cell biology, Neuroscience, Neuromuscular junction, Postsynaptic potential and Anatomy. His work is dedicated to discovering how Cell biology, Neurite are connected with Transmembrane protein and Kinase and other disciplines. His Neuroscience research focuses on subjects like Neurotransmission, which are linked to Neurotransmitter receptor.

His Neuromuscular junction research includes elements of Synaptic cleft, Agrin, Motor neuron, Axon and Synapse. His Postsynaptic potential study combines topics in areas such as Endocrinology, Neurotransmitter and Synaptogenesis. His work on Reinnervation and Denervation as part of general Anatomy research is often related to Population, thus linking different fields of science.

His most cited work include:

  • Highly Parallel Genome-wide Expression Profiling of Individual Cells Using Nanoliter Droplets (3597 citations)
  • Imaging neuronal subsets in transgenic mice expressing multiple spectral variants of GFP. (2478 citations)
  • Long-term in vivo imaging of experience-dependent synaptic plasticity in adult cortex (1561 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Neuroscience, Cell biology, Neuromuscular junction, Anatomy and Postsynaptic potential. His Neuroscience study which covers Cell type that intersects with Transcriptome. He specializes in Cell biology, namely Laminin.

His work carried out in the field of Neuromuscular junction brings together such families of science as Synaptic cleft, Synaptogenesis, Acetylcholine receptor, Agrin and Synapse. His research in Acetylcholine receptor intersects with topics in Endocrinology and Myogenesis. As part of one scientific family, Joshua R. Sanes deals mainly with the area of Skeletal muscle, narrowing it down to issues related to the Molecular biology, and often Transgene, Gene and Dystrophin.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (44.23%)
  • Cell biology (40.29%)
  • Neuromuscular junction (25.31%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2021)?

  • Neuroscience (44.23%)
  • Cell biology (40.29%)
  • Cell type (9.58%)

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

His primary areas of study are Neuroscience, Cell biology, Cell type, Retina and Retinal ganglion. His studies deal with areas such as Cadherin, Retinal and Anatomy as well as Neuroscience. His Anatomy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Receptive field and Nervous system.

His Cell biology study incorporates themes from Embryonic stem cell, Cell and Neuromuscular junction. Joshua R. Sanes combines subjects such as Synapse, CRISPR and Optic nerve with his study of Retina. He has included themes like Transcriptome, Neurite, Transcription factor, Amacrine cell and Inner plexiform layer in his Retinal ganglion study.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Highly Parallel Genome-wide Expression Profiling of Individual Cells Using Nanoliter Droplets (3597 citations)
  • The Human Cell Atlas (853 citations)
  • Comprehensive Classification of Retinal Bipolar Neurons by Single-Cell Transcriptomics. (664 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Neuron
  • Enzyme

Joshua R. Sanes spends much of his time researching Neuroscience, Retinal ganglion, Retina, Cell biology and Cell type. His Neuroscience research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Cadherin, Retinal, Regeneration and Anatomy. His work carried out in the field of Retinal ganglion brings together such families of science as Brain function and Circadian rhythm.

His Retina research integrates issues from Kinase and Ganglion. His research integrates issues of Genetics, Retinal ganglion cell and Synaptic cleft in his study of Cell biology. His study in Cell type is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Cellular neuroscience, Bioinformatics, Horseradish peroxidase, Protein engineering and Computational biology.
