2001 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)
His scientific interests lie mostly in Biochemistry, Sphingolipid, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Cell signaling and Mutant. His Biochemistry study frequently draws connections between related disciplines such as Moiety. His Sphingolipid study incorporates themes from Glycolipid, Saccharomyces and Signal transduction.
In the field of Signal transduction, his study on Lipid raft overlaps with subjects such as Endocytosis and Reporter gene. His studies in Saccharomyces cerevisiae integrate themes in fields like Serine C-palmitoyltransferase, SPTLC1 and Wild type. Robert L. Lester focuses mostly in the field of Mutant, narrowing it down to topics relating to ATP synthase and, in certain cases, Antifungal drug, Complementation, Mannose and Transferase.
Robert L. Lester spends much of his time researching Biochemistry, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Sphingolipid, Yeast and Chromatography. Mutant, Saccharomyces, Phosphatidylinositol, Phospholipid and Gene are among the areas of Biochemistry where the researcher is concentrating his efforts. Robert L. Lester works mostly in the field of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, limiting it down to concerns involving Methylation and, occasionally, Phosphatidylcholine Biosynthesis.
Robert L. Lester has included themes like Serine C-palmitoyltransferase, Cell signaling, Kinase and Function in his Sphingolipid study. His Yeast research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Fatty acid, Phosphate and Paper chromatography. His Chromatography research incorporates themes from Reagent and Organic chemistry.
Robert L. Lester focuses on Sphingolipid, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Biochemistry, Cell biology and Kinase. His Sphingolipid study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Carbamate and High-performance liquid chromatography, Chromatography, Derivatization, Reversed-phase chromatography. His Saccharomyces cerevisiae research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Reagent and Secretory pathway.
His research brings together the fields of Function and Biochemistry. His work on Signal transduction and Lipid raft as part of his general Cell biology study is frequently connected to Endocytosis, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. Robert L. Lester has researched Kinase in several fields, including Phosphatase, Lyase, Mutant and Yeast.
His primary areas of study are Biochemistry, Cell biology, Sphingolipid, Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Protein kinase A. He performs multidisciplinary study on Biochemistry and Endocytosis in his works. He integrates many fields, such as Endocytosis, Signal transduction, Exocytosis, Lipid raft and Cortical actin cytoskeleton, in his works.
Robert L. Lester interconnects ATPase, Phenotype, Function, Vacuole and Acyl group in the investigation of issues within In vitro. His ASK1 research is multidisciplinary, relying on both MAPK14 and Autophosphorylation. In general Phosphorylation, his work in c-Raf is often linked to Eisosome linking many areas of study.
