Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Cancer
  • Enzyme

His main research concerns Pancreas, Pancreatic cancer, Cancer research, Internal medicine and Endocrinology. His work deals with themes such as Pancreatitis, Northern blot and Pathology, which intersect with Pancreas. His Pancreatic cancer research incorporates themes from Cancer cell, Fibroblast growth factor and Adenocarcinoma.

His Cancer research research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Epidermal growth factor, Fibroblast growth factor receptor 4, microRNA, Growth factor and Cyclin D. His Internal medicine study incorporates themes from Messenger RNA and Amylase. His work on Transforming growth factor beta and Central nervous system as part of general Endocrinology study is frequently linked to Substantia nigra, bridging the gap between disciplines.

His most cited work include:

  • Estrogen binding, receptor mRNA, and biologic response in osteoblast-like osteosarcoma cells (761 citations)
  • Overexpression of the epidermal growth factor receptor in human pancreatic cancer is associated with concomitant increases in the levels of epidermal growth factor and transforming growth factor alpha. (484 citations)
  • Enhanced expression of transforming growth factor β isoforms in pancreatic cancer correlates with decreased survival (468 citations)

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

Murray Korc mainly investigates Pancreatic cancer, Cancer research, Internal medicine, Endocrinology and Pancreas. His work carried out in the field of Pancreatic cancer brings together such families of science as Cancer cell, Metastasis and Pathology. His research integrates issues of Growth factor, Epidermal growth factor, Autocrine signalling and Cell growth in his study of Cancer research.

His Internal medicine research integrates issues from Cell culture, Oncology and Amylase. Murray Korc has researched Endocrinology in several fields, including Receptor, Molecular biology and Northern blot. His studies in Pancreas integrate themes in fields like Pancreatitis and Fibroblast growth factor.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Pancreatic cancer (48.55%)
  • Cancer research (48.91%)
  • Internal medicine (44.57%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2008-2021)?

  • Pancreatic cancer (48.55%)
  • Cancer research (48.91%)
  • Cancer (26.09%)

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

Pancreatic cancer, Cancer research, Cancer, microRNA and Cancer cell are his primary areas of study. His Pancreatic cancer study is concerned with Internal medicine in general. His Internal medicine research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Genetics, Endocrinology and Oncology.

The Cancer research study combines topics in areas such as Carcinogenesis, KRAS, Immunology and Cell growth. His Cancer study combines topics in areas such as Cell culture, Transfection, Lung and Bioinformatics. The concepts of his microRNA study are interwoven with issues in Lung cancer and In situ hybridization.

Between 2008 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • MicroRNA-31 functions as an oncogenic microRNA in mouse and human lung cancer cells by repressing specific tumor suppressors (322 citations)
  • Cancer-associated cachexia. (284 citations)
  • The role of fibroblast growth factors in tumor growth (238 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Cancer
  • Enzyme

Murray Korc mainly focuses on Cancer research, Pancreatic cancer, Pancreas, Cell growth and Cancer cell. His studies link microRNA with Cancer research. His Pancreatic cancer study frequently draws connections between adjacent fields such as Epidermal growth factor.

His studies deal with areas such as KRAS, Pancreatitis and Pathology as well as Pancreas. His Cell growth study also includes fields such as

  • Angiogenesis, which have a strong connection to Pancreatic tumor, Tumor progression, Cell biology and Fibroblast growth factor,

  • Vascular endothelial growth factor A which is related to area like Fibroblast growth factor receptor and Neovascularization. His Cancer cell study also includes

  • Tumor microenvironment and related Growth factor, Erlotinib and Transforming growth factor,

  • Molecular biology most often made with reference to Stromal cell.
