Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Enzyme
  • Endocrinology

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Skeletal muscle, Insulin resistance and Interleukin 6. His studies in Insulin, Physical exercise, Glycogen, Cytokine and Exercise physiology are all subfields of Internal medicine research. His Endocrinology study combines topics in areas such as Interleukin and Signal transduction.

His Skeletal muscle study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Brachial artery, AMP-activated protein kinase, Femoral vein, Muscle contraction and Myocyte. His work carried out in the field of Insulin resistance brings together such families of science as Inflammation, AMPK and Tumor necrosis factor alpha. Mark A. Febbraio has researched Interleukin 6 in several fields, including Flow cytometry, Myokine and Glucocorticoid.

His most cited work include:

  • Muscles, exercise and obesity: skeletal muscle as a secretory organ (1333 citations)
  • Muscle as an endocrine organ: focus on muscle-derived interleukin-6. (1243 citations)
  • Muscle-derived interleukin-6: mechanisms for activation and possible biological roles (689 citations)

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

Mark A. Febbraio spends much of his time researching Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Skeletal muscle, Insulin resistance and Insulin. His research in Physical exercise, Carbohydrate metabolism, Glycogen, Inflammation and Metabolism are components of Internal medicine. He combines subjects such as Receptor and Immune system with his study of Inflammation.

His work deals with themes such as Interleukin 6 and Cytokine, which intersect with Endocrinology. His Skeletal muscle research includes themes of AMP-activated protein kinase, Signal transduction, Muscle contraction, Phosphorylation and Myocyte. Mark A. Febbraio frequently studies issues relating to Type 2 diabetes and Insulin resistance.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (89.56%)
  • Endocrinology (85.19%)
  • Skeletal muscle (35.92%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Internal medicine (89.56%)
  • Endocrinology (85.19%)
  • Inflammation (22.33%)

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

Mark A. Febbraio mostly deals with Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Inflammation, Insulin resistance and Skeletal muscle. Carbohydrate metabolism, Interleukin 6, Adiponectin, Cytokine and Metabolic syndrome are among the areas of Internal medicine where the researcher is concentrating his efforts. Insulin, Type 2 diabetes, Adipose tissue, Metabolism and Glucose uptake are the primary areas of interest in his Endocrinology study.

His Inflammation research incorporates themes from Receptor and Cell biology. In the subject of general Insulin resistance, his work in Glucose homeostasis and Glucose tolerance test is often linked to Context, thereby combining diverse domains of study. His Skeletal muscle research integrates issues from Transcriptome and Computational biology.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Extracellular Vesicles Provide a Means for Tissue Crosstalk during Exercise (170 citations)
  • Extracellular Vesicles Provide a Means for Tissue Crosstalk during Exercise (170 citations)
  • Evidence that TLR4 Is Not a Receptor for Saturated Fatty Acids but Mediates Lipid-Induced Inflammation by Reprogramming Macrophage Metabolism (153 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Enzyme
  • Endocrinology

Mark A. Febbraio focuses on Endocrinology, Internal medicine, Cell biology, Inflammation and Adipose tissue. His Endocrinology research includes elements of Interleukin 6 and Corepressor. As part of his studies on Internal medicine, he often connects relevant areas like Lipid oxidation.

The study incorporates disciplines such as T cell, Myokine, Extracellular vesicle and Glucose homeostasis in addition to Cell biology. His Inflammation study deals with Receptor intersecting with Metabolism, Macrophage, Metabolic pathway and Fatty acid. His research on Adipose tissue also deals with topics like

  • Insulin resistance which intersects with area such as Inflammasome, Phenocopy and Metabolic syndrome,
  • Fatty liver which intersects with area such as Saturated fatty acid, Steatosis, Tumor necrosis factor alpha, Skeletal muscle and Kinase.
