2010 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)
Roberto Docampo spends much of his time researching Biochemistry, Acidocalcisome, Trypanosoma cruzi, Cell biology and Organelle. His work in Polyphosphate, Mitochondrion, Enzyme, Farnesyl pyrophosphate and Trypanosoma brucei is related to Biochemistry. His Acidocalcisome research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Calcium, Nigericin and Pyrophosphate.
He interconnects Genome editing, Microsome, Amastigote and Chagas disease in the investigation of issues within Trypanosoma cruzi. Roberto Docampo works mostly in the field of Cell biology, limiting it down to concerns involving Cell culture and, occasionally, Tissue culture, Myocyte, Cytosol and Vacuolization. His Organelle study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Ultrastructure and Contractile vacuole.
Biochemistry, Trypanosoma cruzi, Cell biology, Acidocalcisome and Trypanosoma brucei are his primary areas of study. His Biochemistry study frequently involves adjacent topics like Calcium. His work carried out in the field of Trypanosoma cruzi brings together such families of science as Molecular biology, Amastigote and Chagas disease.
His studies deal with areas such as Protein subunit and Cytosol as well as Cell biology. His work deals with themes such as Endoplasmic reticulum, Nigericin and Pyrophosphate, which intersect with Acidocalcisome. His Mitochondrion research focuses on subjects like Digitonin, which are linked to Membrane potential.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Cell biology, Trypanosoma cruzi, Biochemistry, Trypanosoma brucei and Mitochondrion. His Cell biology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Uniporter and Protein subunit. His Trypanosoma cruzi research includes elements of Gene, Gene knockdown, Amastigote, Chagas disease and Citrate synthase.
His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Cell fractionation and Exopolyphosphatase, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Yeast. His Mitochondrion study incorporates themes from Biophysics, Digitonin and Second messenger system. The Acidocalcisome study combines topics in areas such as Endoplasmic reticulum, Calcium, Organelle and Symporter.
Roberto Docampo mostly deals with Cell biology, Trypanosoma cruzi, Gene, Calcium signaling and Biochemistry. His Protein subunit research extends to Cell biology, which is thematically connected. Roberto Docampo has researched Trypanosoma cruzi in several fields, including Yeast, Exopolyphosphatase, Escherichia coli, Cell fractionation and Chagas disease.
His study in Gene is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both DNA and Citrate synthase. His research in Calcium signaling intersects with topics in Phosphatase, Phosphorylation, Bioenergetics and Pyruvate dehydrogenase phosphatase, Pyruvate dehydrogenase complex. Roberto Docampo integrates Biochemistry with Antiparasitic agent in his research.
