The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Cell biology, Transcription factor, Signal transduction, Immunology and Inflammation. His Cell biology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Apoptosis, Programmed cell death and Regulation of gene expression. His studies deal with areas such as Proinflammatory cytokine, Molecular biology, Cell cycle and Immune system as well as Transcription factor.

His work deals with themes such as Oxidative stress, Kinase, Cell growth and Phosphorylation, which intersect with Signal transduction. His Immunology research includes elements of Carcinogenesis, Cancer and Cancer research. Michael Karin usually deals with Inflammation and limits it to topics linked to Endocrinology and Necrosis.

His most cited work include:

  • Immunity, Inflammation, and Cancer (5969 citations)
  • Mammalian MAP kinase signalling cascades (4278 citations)
  • Phosphorylation meets ubiquitination: the control of NF-[kappa]B activity. (4173 citations)

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

Michael Karin focuses on Cell biology, Cancer research, Immunology, Molecular biology and Signal transduction. His Cell biology research incorporates elements of Transcription factor and Biochemistry. His study in Transcription factor is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Regulation of gene expression and Transcription.
