Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Internal medicine

Adipose triglyceride lipase, Biochemistry, Lipolysis, Internal medicine and Endocrinology are his primary areas of study. Robert Zimmermann is interested in Neutral lipid storage disease, which is a field of Adipose triglyceride lipase. His study in Catabolism, Lipase and Lipid droplet is done as part of Biochemistry.

Robert Zimmermann interconnects Diacylglycerol kinase and Monoacylglycerol lipase in the investigation of issues within Lipase. The concepts of his Lipid droplet study are interwoven with issues in Steatosis and Metabolism. His Lipolysis study is concerned with the field of Adipose tissue as a whole.

His most cited work include:

  • Affectional Response in the Infant Monkey: Orphaned baby monkeys develop a strong and persistent attachment to inanimate surrogate mothers (692 citations)
  • FAT SIGNALS - Lipases and Lipolysis in Lipid Metabolism and Signaling (608 citations)
  • Hormone-sensitive Lipase Deficiency in Mice Causes Diglyceride Accumulation in Adipose Tissue, Muscle, and Testis (484 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Biochemistry, Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Adipose triglyceride lipase and Lipolysis. His study involves Lipase, Monoacylglycerol lipase, Lipoprotein lipase, Lipid metabolism and Fatty acid, a branch of Biochemistry. Adipose tissue, Triglyceride, Hormone-sensitive lipase, Steatosis and Metabolism are the core of his Internal medicine study.

His Fatty acid metabolism study in the realm of Endocrinology interacts with subjects such as Weight loss. The Adipose triglyceride lipase study combines topics in areas such as Catabolism and Lipid droplet. As part of one scientific family, Robert Zimmermann deals mainly with the area of Lipolysis, narrowing it down to issues related to the Insulin resistance, and often Fatty liver.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Biochemistry (43.48%)
  • Internal medicine (40.87%)
  • Endocrinology (40.87%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2020)?

  • Monoacylglycerol lipase (18.26%)
  • Internal medicine (40.87%)
  • Endocrinology (40.87%)

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

Robert Zimmermann mainly focuses on Monoacylglycerol lipase, Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Adipose triglyceride lipase and Biochemistry. His studies in Internal medicine integrate themes in fields like Enzyme and Dipeptidyl peptidase. His Endocrinology research focuses on Triglyceride in particular.

His Adipose triglyceride lipase research includes elements of Phospholipase and Lipid droplet. His work on Hydrolase and Small molecule as part of general Biochemistry study is frequently linked to Lysophospholipids, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. His work carried out in the field of Lipolysis brings together such families of science as Insulin resistance and Fatty liver.

Between 2016 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Pharmacological inhibition of adipose triglyceride lipase corrects high-fat diet-induced insulin resistance and hepatosteatosis in mice (82 citations)
  • Monoglyceride Lipase as a Drug Target: At the Crossroads of Arachidonic Acid Metabolism and Endocannabinoid Signaling (55 citations)
  • Lipid droplets induced by secreted phospholipase A2 and unsaturated fatty acids protect breast cancer cells from nutrient and lipotoxic stress (45 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Internal medicine

His primary areas of study are Monoacylglycerol lipase, Biochemistry, Internal medicine, Endocrinology and Enzyme. His study in Monoacylglycerol lipase is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Docking, Hydrolase, Arachidonic acid, Lipid metabolism and Metabolism. His work on Cannabinoid, Fatty acid and Lipid signaling as part of general Biochemistry study is frequently linked to Polyketide and Energy source, bridging the gap between disciplines.

His Internal medicine study focuses mostly on Adipose tissue and Steatosis. His specific area of interest is Adipose tissue, where Robert Zimmermann studies Lipolysis. His Enzyme study which covers Intracellular that intersects with Energy homeostasis, Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, Superoxide and Lipid droplet.
