1996 - Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Enzyme
  • Gene
  • Biochemistry

His primary scientific interests are in Biochemistry, Astronomy, Gamma ray, Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope and Astrophysics. His study in Retinal, Membrane, Retinol, Methylation and Cysteine is done as part of Biochemistry. In Membrane, Robert R. Rando works on issues like Isomerization, which are connected to Moiety and Stereochemistry.

His work in the fields of Astronomy, such as Gamma-ray burst, Cosmic ray, Nebula and Crab Nebula, intersects with other areas such as Synchrotron radiation. In general Gamma-ray burst, his work in GRB 130427A is often linked to Compton scattering linking many areas of study. The various areas that Robert R. Rando examines in his Cosmic ray study include Stars and Supernova.

His most cited work include:

  • Fermi Observations of High-Energy Gamma-Ray Emission from GRB 080916C (581 citations)
  • Fermi Observations of High-Energy Gamma-Ray Emission from GRB 080916C (581 citations)
  • Gamma-Ray Flares from the Crab Nebula (329 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Biochemistry, Stereochemistry, Enzyme, Rhodopsin and Membrane. Cysteine, Retinal, Retinol, Methylation and Lecithin retinol acyltransferase are the subjects of his Biochemistry studies. His study looks at the intersection of Stereochemistry and topics like Isomerization with Isomerase.

His Enzyme research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Lecithin and Mechanism of action. His research integrates issues of Schiff base, Lysine, Photochemistry, Chromophore and Photoisomerization in his study of Rhodopsin. His Membrane study combines topics in areas such as Liposome and Biosynthesis.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Biochemistry (49.17%)
  • Stereochemistry (31.82%)
  • Enzyme (20.25%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2000-2014)?

  • Biochemistry (49.17%)
  • Lecithin retinol acyltransferase (7.44%)
  • Stereochemistry (31.82%)

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

Robert R. Rando spends much of his time researching Biochemistry, Lecithin retinol acyltransferase, Stereochemistry, Visual phototransduction and Astrophysics. Robert R. Rando combines subjects such as Residue, Ribosomal RNA, Translation and Affinity labeling with his study of Stereochemistry. The study incorporates disciplines such as Isomerization, Substrate and Macular degeneration in addition to Visual phototransduction.

As part of his studies on Astrophysics, Robert R. Rando often connects relevant areas like Astronomy. His Cosmic ray, Supernova and Symbiotic star study, which is part of a larger body of work in Astronomy, is frequently linked to Synchrotron radiation and Population, bridging the gap between disciplines. His work on GRB 130427A as part of his general Gamma-ray burst study is frequently connected to Pulse and Compton scattering, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science.

Between 2000 and 2014, his most popular works were:

  • Fermi Observations of High-Energy Gamma-Ray Emission from GRB 080916C (581 citations)
  • Fermi Observations of High-Energy Gamma-Ray Emission from GRB 080916C (581 citations)
  • Gamma-Ray Flares from the Crab Nebula (329 citations)

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

  • Enzyme
  • Gene
  • Amino acid

Robert R. Rando mainly investigates Astronomy, Gamma ray, Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope, Astrophysics and Visual phototransduction. His work in the fields of Astronomy, such as Gamma-ray burst, Cosmic ray, Nebula and Flare, overlaps with other areas such as Synchrotron radiation. Robert R. Rando studies GRB 130427A, a branch of Gamma-ray burst.

His research in Cosmic ray intersects with topics in Stars and Supernova. His Visual phototransduction research integrates issues from RPE65, Stereochemistry and Rhodopsin. His research in Stereochemistry focuses on subjects like Specific activity, which are connected to Retinol.
