Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Enzyme

His primary scientific interests are in Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Cardiology, Fibrosis and Myocardial fibrosis. His studies in Left ventricular hypertrophy, Aldosterone, Heart failure, Angiotensin-converting enzyme and Myocyte are all subfields of Internal medicine research. Karl T. Weber studies Endocrinology, namely Angiotensin II.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Renin–angiotensin system and Endothelins. His work on Cardiology is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Hemoglobin. As a part of the same scientific family, Karl T. Weber mostly works in the field of Fibrosis, focusing on Diastole and, on occasion, Transplantation, Endocardial fibrosis, Stroke volume and Ejection fraction.

His most cited work include:

  • Pathological hypertrophy and cardiac interstitium. Fibrosis and renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system. (1787 citations)
  • Cardiac interstitium in health and disease: the fibrillar collagen network (867 citations)
  • Remodeling of the rat right and left ventricles in experimental hypertension. (620 citations)

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

Internal medicine, Cardiology, Endocrinology, Fibrosis and Angiotensin II are his primary areas of study. His research in Myocardial fibrosis, Heart failure, Angiotensin-converting enzyme, Aldosterone and Left ventricular hypertrophy are components of Internal medicine. The concepts of his Cardiology study are interwoven with issues in Renovascular hypertension and Blood pressure.

His research combines Fibroblast and Endocrinology. His studies deal with areas such as Wound healing, Myocardial infarction and Diastole as well as Fibrosis. The Angiotensin II study combines topics in areas such as Bradykinin, Autocrine signalling and Connective tissue.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (72.00%)
  • Cardiology (42.29%)
  • Endocrinology (35.43%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 1997-2002)?

  • Internal medicine (72.00%)
  • Endocrinology (35.43%)
  • Angiotensin II (25.71%)

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

Karl T. Weber mostly deals with Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Angiotensin II, Fibrosis and Aldosterone. He frequently studies issues relating to Cardiology and Internal medicine. He interconnects Blood pressure and Adventitia in the investigation of issues within Cardiology.

His studies in Angiotensin II integrate themes in fields like Myocardial fibrosis, Paracrine signalling and Cardiac fibrosis. His research in Fibrosis intersects with topics in Hypertensive heart disease, Ventricular hypertrophy, Left ventricular hypertrophy, Myocardial infarction and Myocyte. His Aldosterone research incorporates elements of Surgery and Adrenalectomy.

Between 1997 and 2002, his most popular works were:

  • Targeting pathological remodeling: concepts of cardioprotection and reparation. (118 citations)
  • Myocardial fibrosis associated with aldosterone or angiotensin II administration: attenuation by calcium channel blockade. (113 citations)
  • Extra-adrenal mineralocorticoids and cardiovascular tissue. (74 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Enzyme

Karl T. Weber focuses on Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Angiotensin II, Fibrosis and Lymphocyte. His work in Internal medicine is not limited to one particular discipline; it also encompasses Cardiology. His Endocrinology research integrates issues from Mibefradil, Calcium metabolism and Cardiac fibrosis.

His Angiotensin II research includes elements of Calcium, Paracrine signalling, Myocardial fibrosis, Homeostasis and Connective tissue. His work carried out in the field of Fibrosis brings together such families of science as Hypertensive heart disease, Spironolactone, Adrenal cortex, Corticosterone and Adrenalectomy. Karl T. Weber has researched Lymphocyte in several fields, including Cell growth, Mitosis, Cell biology, Molecular biology and Cell cycle.
