Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Enzyme

His primary areas of study are Retina, Anatomy, Neuroscience, Neuroprotection and Retinal ganglion. His Retina research integrates issues from Retinohypothalamic tract, Ocular hypertension and Blood–retinal barrier. His work deals with themes such as Retinal and Spinal cord, which intersect with Anatomy.

His Neuroscience study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Genetically modified mouse and Cell biology. His Neuroprotection study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Oxidative stress, Neurotoxicity and Apoptosis, Protein kinase B. Kwok-Fai So has researched Retinal ganglion in several fields, including Internal medicine and Endocrinology.

His most cited work include:

  • Nano neuro knitting: peptide nanofiber scaffold for brain repair and axon regeneration with functional return of vision. (668 citations)
  • Lexical and conceptual representation in beginning and proficient bilinguals (479 citations)
  • LINGO-1 antagonist promotes spinal cord remyelination and axonal integrity in MOG-induced experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (415 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Neuroscience, Retinal ganglion, Anatomy, Retina and Internal medicine. Kwok-Fai So interconnects Neurotrophic factors, Transplantation and Regeneration in the investigation of issues within Neuroscience. The concepts of his Retinal ganglion study are interwoven with issues in Pathology, Cell biology, Neuroprotection and Optic nerve.

His Anatomy study incorporates themes from Lesion, Axotomy, Hamster and Spinal cord. His Retina study combines topics in areas such as Retinal, Ocular hypertension and Ganglion. His Internal medicine research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Neurogenesis, Endocrinology and Adiponectin.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (41.84%)
  • Retinal ganglion (27.23%)
  • Anatomy (24.54%)

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

  • Neuroscience (41.84%)
  • Internal medicine (20.85%)
  • Retinal (14.89%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Neuroscience, Internal medicine, Retinal, Pharmacology and Retinal ganglion. Kwok-Fai So focuses mostly in the field of Neuroscience, narrowing it down to matters related to Microglia and, in some cases, Progenitor cell. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Adiponectin and Bipolar disorder, Endocrinology, Depression.

His study ties his expertise on Retina together with the subject of Retinal. His Pharmacology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in NMDA receptor, Excitotoxicity, Oxidative stress and Lycium. His Neuroprotection research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Disease and Bioinformatics.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Repopulated microglia are solely derived from the proliferation of residual microglia after acute depletion. (157 citations)
  • Repopulated microglia are solely derived from the proliferation of residual microglia after acute depletion. (157 citations)
  • Polyphenols from wolfberry and their bioactivities. (64 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Enzyme

Kwok-Fai So mainly investigates Neuroscience, Retinal ganglion, Retinal, Pharmacology and Retina. His work carried out in the field of Neuroscience brings together such families of science as Progenitor cell, Microglia and Dorsal raphe nucleus. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Progenitor cell, Cell biology is strongly linked to Genetically modified mouse.

Kwok-Fai So has included themes like Looming, Superior colliculus, Biological neural network, GABAergic and Serotonergic in his Retinal ganglion study. His research integrates issues of Oxidative stress and NMDA receptor, Receptor, Inflammasome, Excitotoxicity in his study of Pharmacology. His work on Retinal degeneration as part of general Retina study is frequently linked to Lateral habenula, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science.
