Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Enzyme
  • Gene
  • Biochemistry

Kirsten Sandvig mostly deals with Cell biology, Biochemistry, Endocytosis, Endosome and Microvesicles. Her Cell biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Endocytic cycle, Internalization, Molecular biology and Vesicle. Ricin, Toxin, Diphtheria toxin, AB toxin and In vitro are the primary areas of interest in her Biochemistry study.

Her studies deal with areas such as Golgi apparatus and Shiga toxin as well as Endocytosis. Her Endosome research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Lysosome, Gelonin, Endocytic vesicle, Cytosol and Horseradish peroxidase. Her Microvesicles research includes themes of Sphingolipid, Prostate cancer and Cancer biomarkers.

Her most cited work include:

  • Endocytosis and intracellular transport of nanoparticles: Present knowledge and need for future studies (871 citations)
  • Endocytosis and intracellular transport of nanoparticles: Present knowledge and need for future studies (871 citations)
  • Extraction of Cholesterol with Methyl-β-Cyclodextrin Perturbs Formation of Clathrin-coated Endocytic Vesicles (867 citations)

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

Kirsten Sandvig mainly investigates Cell biology, Biochemistry, Endocytosis, Ricin and Golgi apparatus. Her work carried out in the field of Cell biology brings together such families of science as Molecular biology and Vesicle, Clathrin. Her Vesicle research focuses on subjects like Microvesicles, which are linked to Extracellular and Lipidomics.

As a member of one scientific family, Kirsten Sandvig mostly works in the field of Biochemistry, focusing on Biophysics and, on occasion, Lipid bilayer. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Internalization and Caveolae. Her work in Golgi apparatus addresses subjects such as Shiga toxin, which are connected to disciplines such as Microbiology.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Cell biology (57.46%)
  • Biochemistry (50.70%)
  • Endocytosis (41.13%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Cell biology (57.46%)
  • Cytotoxicity (9.01%)
  • Biophysics (13.80%)

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

Kirsten Sandvig focuses on Cell biology, Cytotoxicity, Biophysics, Endocytosis and Biodistribution. Kirsten Sandvig studies Cell biology, namely Endosome. Her Endosome research includes elements of Golgi apparatus, Phospholipase D, Membrane transport and Ricin.

Her research in Cytotoxicity intersects with topics in Molecular biology and Organic chemistry, Toxicity. Her study on Biophysics also encompasses disciplines like

  • Cholesterol that intertwine with fields like Membrane function and Molecular mechanism,
  • Sphingolipid together with Lipid raft and Microvesicles. Her research investigates the connection between Endocytosis and topics such as Caveolae that intersect with issues in Tyrosine-kinase inhibitor and Genistein.

Between 2016 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Lipids in exosomes: Current knowledge and the way forward. (416 citations)
  • Exosomal lipid composition and the role of ether lipids and phosphoinositides in exosome biology (174 citations)
  • Exosomal lipid composition and the role of ether lipids and phosphoinositides in exosome biology (174 citations)

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

  • Enzyme
  • Gene
  • Cell membrane

Microvesicles, Biochemistry, Cytosol, Sphingolipid and Prostate cancer are her primary areas of study. The concepts of her Microvesicles study are interwoven with issues in Extracellular, Cell biology, Vesicle, Vesicular transport protein and Lipidomics. Many of her research projects under Cell biology are closely connected to Future studies with Future studies, tying the diverse disciplines of science together.

Protein subunit, Protein biosynthesis, Intracellular and Ricin are the core of her Biochemistry study. In her research on the topic of Cytosol, Cell type, Toxin and Shiga toxin is strongly related with Endoplasmic reticulum. Her Prostate cancer research integrates issues from Urinary system, microRNA and Cancer biomarkers.
