2008 - Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada Academy of Science
His main research concerns Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Cell biology, Heart disease and Embryonic stem cell. His Internal medicine study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Cardiology. With his scientific publications, his incorporates both Endocrinology and Angiotensin-converting enzyme 2.
The concepts of his Cell biology study are interwoven with issues in Cell culture, Regulation of gene expression, Gene expression and Cellular differentiation. His study looks at the relationship between Regulation of gene expression and topics such as Heart morphogenesis, which overlap with Candidate gene, Mutant and Angiotensin II. As a part of the same scientific family, Peter H. Backx mostly works in the field of Embryonic stem cell, focusing on Anatomy and, on occasion, Induced pluripotent stem cell, Neuroscience, Sinoatrial node, Electronic pacemaker and Stem cell.
Peter H. Backx mostly deals with Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Cell biology, Cardiology and Myocyte. Contractility, Muscle hypertrophy, Cardiac function curve, Heart failure and Cardiomyopathy are subfields of Internal medicine in which his conducts study. His Contractility research incorporates elements of Phosphodiesterase and Phospholamban, Phosphorylation.
Peter H. Backx combines subjects such as Electrophysiology, Heart disease, Calcium and Signal transduction with his study of Endocrinology. His research investigates the connection between Cell biology and topics such as Skeletal muscle that intersect with issues in Sodium channel. In his study, Patch clamp, Cardiac muscle, Intracellular, Ryanodine receptor and Anatomy is inextricably linked to Biophysics, which falls within the broad field of Myocyte.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Cardiology, Cell biology and Induced pluripotent stem cell. His Endocrinology study combines topics in areas such as Cardiac function curve, Regulation of gene expression and Cytokine. His research integrates issues of Cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator and Heart rate in his study of Cardiology.
The various areas that Peter H. Backx examines in his Cell biology study include Cardioprotection and Skeletal muscle. His Induced pluripotent stem cell research incorporates themes from Neuroscience, Cellular differentiation and Mesoderm. His work is dedicated to discovering how Contractility, Myofilament are connected with Phosphorylation and other disciplines.
Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Cell biology, Induced pluripotent stem cell and Neuroscience are his primary areas of study. Many of his studies on Internal medicine involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Immune system. His work carried out in the field of Endocrinology brings together such families of science as Endothelial stem cell, Biochemistry, Right bundle branch block and Gap junction.
His studies in Cell biology integrate themes in fields like Vasoconstriction, Regulation of gene expression, Etanercept and Electrical conduction system of the heart. He focuses mostly in the field of Induced pluripotent stem cell, narrowing it down to topics relating to Cellular differentiation and, in certain cases, Cell culture, Retinoic acid, Mesoderm and Retinal dehydrogenase. His study looks at the relationship between Neuroscience and fields such as Stem cell, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.
