Kai Simons mainly focuses on Cell biology, Lipid raft, Biochemistry, Membrane protein and Membrane lipids. The study incorporates disciplines such as Endocytosis, Cell membrane and Biological membrane in addition to Cell biology. His Lipid raft research includes elements of Liquid ordered phase, Fluid mosaic model and Transmembrane protein.
In Fluid mosaic model, Kai Simons works on issues like Plasma membrane organization, which are connected to Signal transducing adaptor protein. The concepts of his Biochemistry study are interwoven with issues in Alzheimer's disease and Amyloid precursor protein. His research integrates issues of Apical membrane, Epithelial polarity and Membrane contact site in his study of Membrane lipids.
His primary areas of investigation include Cell biology, Biochemistry, Membrane protein, Golgi apparatus and Membrane. He has researched Cell biology in several fields, including Apical membrane, Cell membrane and Cell polarity. His Cell membrane research incorporates themes from Molecular biology and Caveolae.
As a part of the same scientific family, Kai Simons mostly works in the field of Membrane protein, focusing on Glycoprotein and, on occasion, Cell culture. His research in Golgi apparatus intersects with topics in Vesicle, Vesicular transport protein and Basolateral plasma membrane. His Lipid raft research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Biological membrane and Membrane lipids.
