1995 - Fellow of John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation
Richard A. Firtel mainly focuses on Cell biology, Dictyostelium, Chemotaxis, Gene and Molecular biology. His research in Cell biology intersects with topics in Cell migration, Cytoskeleton and Cell polarity. His Cell migration research includes themes of GTP-binding protein regulators, Guanine nucleotide exchange factor and Actin cytoskeleton.
His Dictyostelium study incorporates themes from Cell aggregation, Cell, Cell type and Dictyostelium discoideum. Richard A. Firtel has researched Chemotaxis in several fields, including Protein kinase B, PI3K/AKT/mTOR pathway, Signal transduction and Kinase. His Molecular biology study combines topics in areas such as Plasmid, Tyrosine, G protein-coupled receptor and Recombinant DNA.
Richard A. Firtel mostly deals with Cell biology, Dictyostelium, Dictyostelium discoideum, Molecular biology and Gene. His Cell biology research integrates issues from Morphogenesis, Chemotaxis and Cytoskeleton. Richard A. Firtel has included themes like Protein kinase B, Actin cytoskeleton, Pseudopodia, PI3K/AKT/mTOR pathway and Cell polarity in his Chemotaxis study.
The Dictyostelium study combines topics in areas such as Cell, Gene expression, Cellular differentiation, Motility and Transcription. His Dictyostelium discoideum study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as RNA, Regulation of gene expression, Slime mold and Messenger RNA. The study incorporates disciplines such as Plasmid, DNA, Recombinant DNA, Ribosomal RNA and Heterotrimeric G protein in addition to Molecular biology.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Cell biology, Motility, Dictyostelium, Chemotaxis and Cell migration. His research integrates issues of Spindle apparatus, Dictyostelium discoideum and Cleavage furrow in his study of Cell biology. His Motility research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Cell, Cell adhesion and Cell culture.
His Dictyostelium study is concerned with the field of Gene as a whole. Richard A. Firtel has included themes like Signal transduction, G protein-coupled receptor, Pseudopodia, Effector and Cell polarity in his Chemotaxis study. His Cell migration research includes themes of WAVE complex, Biophysics and Cytoskeleton.
His primary scientific interests are in Cell biology, Chemotaxis, Motility, Actin and Dictyostelium. Richard A. Firtel works in the field of Cell biology, namely Myosin. His research in Chemotaxis intersects with topics in Pseudopodia, Signal transduction and Actin cytoskeleton.
In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Motility, Cell adhesion, Single-cell analysis and Membrane is strongly linked to Dictyostelium discoideum. His work deals with themes such as Mechanotransduction, Asymmetric cell division, Cleavage furrow and INCENP, which intersect with Actin. His study looks at the relationship between Dictyostelium and topics such as Cell migration, which overlap with Cytoplasm and Cell shape.
