What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Cancer
  • Gene

Pathology, Angiogenesis, Immunology, Cancer research and Neovascularization are his primary areas of study. The Pathology study combines topics in areas such as Microcirculation and Metastasis. Rakesh K. Jain focuses mostly in the field of Angiogenesis, narrowing it down to matters related to Vascular endothelial growth factor and, in some cases, Endocrinology.

His research in Immunology intersects with topics in Blood vessel and Cell biology. He combines subjects such as Cancer, Tumor progression and Immunotherapy with his study of Cancer research. His study in Cancer is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Bevacizumab, Oncology and Bioinformatics.

His most cited work include:

  • Angiogenesis in cancer and other diseases (7144 citations)
  • Normalization of Tumor Vasculature: An Emerging Concept in Antiangiogenic Therapy (4002 citations)
  • Photodynamic therapy for cancer (3798 citations)

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

Rakesh K. Jain mostly deals with Pathology, Cancer research, Internal medicine, Angiogenesis and Cancer. Rakesh K. Jain works mostly in the field of Pathology, limiting it down to topics relating to In vivo and, in certain cases, Biophysics. His Cancer research study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Cancer cell, Metastasis, Immunology and Immunotherapy.

His studies in Internal medicine integrate themes in fields like Endocrinology and Oncology. Rakesh K. Jain is involved in the study of Angiogenesis that focuses on Neovascularization in particular. A large part of his Vascular endothelial growth factor studies is devoted to Vascular endothelial growth factor A.
