What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Cancer
  • Internal medicine
  • Gene

Ralph H. Hruban mainly investigates Pancreatic cancer, Pancreas, Adenocarcinoma, Pathology and Pancreatic disease. As part of his inquiry into Cancer and Internal medicine, he is doing Pancreatic cancer research. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Cyst, Radiology, Neuroendocrine tumors and Dysplasia.

He combines subjects such as Cancer research, Surgery, Pancreatitis, Immunology and Point mutation with his study of Adenocarcinoma. His Pathology research includes themes of Pancreatic duct and Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm. His work carried out in the field of Pancreatic disease brings together such families of science as Pancreatic tumor, Hyperplasia, Germline mutation and Pancreaticoduodenectomy.

His most cited work include:

  • PD-1 Blockade in Tumors with Mismatch-Repair Deficiency (4640 citations)
  • Core Signaling Pathways in Human Pancreatic Cancers Revealed by Global Genomic Analyses (3039 citations)
  • Detection of Circulating Tumor DNA in Early- and Late-Stage Human Malignancies (2454 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Pathology, Pancreatic cancer, Pancreas, Internal medicine and Adenocarcinoma. His study in Pathology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm and Pancreatic Intraepithelial Neoplasia. His Pancreatic cancer research integrates issues from Cancer research and Disease.

The concepts of his Pancreas study are interwoven with issues in Cyst, Radiology and Pancreatitis. His work deals with themes such as Gastroenterology, Endocrinology, Oncology and Cardiology, which intersect with Internal medicine. He has researched Adenocarcinoma in several fields, including Surgery and Pancreaticoduodenectomy.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Pathology (39.88%)
  • Pancreatic cancer (33.47%)
  • Pancreas (34.22%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Pancreatic cancer (33.47%)
  • Pancreas (34.22%)
  • Internal medicine (25.65%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Pancreatic cancer, Pancreas, Internal medicine, Pathology and Cancer. Ralph H. Hruban interconnects Cancer research, Carcinoma, Gene and Adenocarcinoma in the investigation of issues within Pancreatic cancer. His research integrates issues of Mutation, KRAS, Carcinogenesis, Phenotype and CDKN2A in his study of Cancer research.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Radiology, Pancreatic Intraepithelial Neoplasia and Dysplasia in addition to Pancreas. His Internal medicine study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Gastroenterology and Oncology. His Cancer research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Esophagus, Germline mutation, Aneuploidy and Stage.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Detection and localization of surgically resectable cancers with a multi-analyte blood test (908 citations)
  • Detection and localization of surgically resectable cancers with a multi-analyte blood test (908 citations)
  • Integrated Genomic Characterization of Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma (647 citations)

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

  • Cancer
  • Internal medicine
  • Gene

Ralph H. Hruban mainly focuses on Pancreatic cancer, Internal medicine, Cancer, Pancreas and Pathology. His Pancreatic cancer research incorporates themes from Cancer research, Carcinogenesis, Gene, Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm and Carcinoma. His Internal medicine study combines topics in areas such as Gastroenterology, Transcriptome and Oncology.

His Cancer research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Evolutionary dynamics, Cytology, Aneuploidy and Stem cell. His Pancreas research incorporates elements of Stomach, Radiology and Resection. His Pathology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Death-associated protein 6, Bile duct and ATRX.
