1981 - Fellow of Alfred P. Sloan Foundation
Cell biology, Autophagy, Alzheimer's disease, Lysosome and Neuroscience are his primary areas of study. His Cell biology research includes elements of Endocytic cycle, Presenilin and Amyloid precursor protein. His research in Autophagy intersects with topics in Neurodegeneration, Programmed cell death, Vacuole and Amyloid.
His Alzheimer's disease research incorporates elements of Endocrinology, Biochemistry and Degenerative disease. The various areas that Ralph A. Nixon examines in his Lysosome study include Cathepsin, Lipofuscin, Pathology, Proteolysis and V-ATPase. His Neuroscience study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Neurofilament, Downregulation and upregulation, Disease, Phosphorylation and Kinase.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Cell biology, Biochemistry, Neuroscience, Neurofilament and Autophagy. The Cell biology study combines topics in areas such as Molecular biology, Calpain, Neurodegeneration and Programmed cell death. His studies deal with areas such as Alzheimer's disease and Disease as well as Neuroscience.
His Alzheimer's disease research incorporates themes from Endocrinology and Immunology. His Neurofilament research includes themes of Axoplasmic transport, Intermediate filament, Cytoskeleton, Protein subunit and Phosphorylation. His study looks at the intersection of Autophagy and topics like Lysosome with Cathepsin.
His primary areas of investigation include Cell biology, Autophagy, Neuroscience, Neurofilament and Lysosome. His Cell biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Cathepsin D, Cathepsin, Molecular biology, Calpain and Autophagosome. His Autophagy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Programmed cell death, Presenilin, Proteolysis and Amyloid precursor protein.
His Neuroscience research integrates issues from Alzheimer's disease, Disease, Neurodegeneration and Endosome. His work deals with themes such as Intermediate filament, Axoplasmic transport, Protein subunit and Phosphorylation, which intersect with Neurofilament. His Lysosome research incorporates themes from Endocytic cycle, Nutrient sensing and V-ATPase.
