Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • DNA

Nuclear receptor, Receptor, Cell biology, Endocrinology and Internal medicine are his primary areas of study. His Nuclear receptor study incorporates themes from Molecular biology and Signal transduction. Ronald M. Evans focuses mostly in the field of Receptor, narrowing it down to matters related to Transcription and, in some cases, Glucocorticoid receptor, Transcription factor and Glucocorticoid.

His Cell biology research incorporates themes from Genetics, Cellular differentiation, CD36, DNA-binding protein and Corepressor. His Endocrinology research includes elements of Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor, GW501516, Cancer research and Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor delta. Many of his research projects under Internal medicine are closely connected to Placenta with Placenta, tying the diverse disciplines of science together.

His most cited work include:

  • The steroid and thyroid hormone receptor superfamily (6739 citations)
  • The nuclear receptor superfamily: the second decade. (6118 citations)
  • The RXR heterodimers and orphan receptors (2904 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Cell biology, Nuclear receptor, Receptor, Internal medicine and Endocrinology. His Cell biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Cell, Genetics, Gene expression, Molecular biology and Transcription. His studies deal with areas such as Thyroid hormone receptor, Cancer research and Signal transduction as well as Nuclear receptor.

His Receptor study introduces a deeper knowledge of Biochemistry. His Endocrinology study combines topics in areas such as Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor and Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor delta. The concepts of his Retinoid X receptor study are interwoven with issues in Retinoid X receptor gamma and Retinoid X receptor alpha.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cell biology (31.29%)
  • Nuclear receptor (32.65%)
  • Receptor (28.90%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Internal medicine (29.58%)
  • Cell biology (31.29%)
  • Endocrinology (28.33%)

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

His main research concerns Internal medicine, Cell biology, Endocrinology, Cancer research and Nuclear receptor. His Internal medicine research integrates issues from Type 2 diabetes and Oncology. His work in Cell biology covers topics such as Circadian clock which are related to areas like Transcription.

The study of Endocrinology is intertwined with the study of Receptor in a number of ways. His Cancer research research includes themes of Tumor microenvironment, Epigenetics, Calcitriol receptor and Pancreatic cancer. His work carried out in the field of Nuclear receptor brings together such families of science as Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor and Retinoic acid.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Nuclear Receptors, RXR, and the Big Bang. (603 citations)
  • Nuclear Receptors, RXR, and the Big Bang. (603 citations)
  • Vitamin D Receptor-Mediated Stromal Reprogramming Suppresses Pancreatitis and Enhances Pancreatic Cancer Therapy (532 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • DNA

Ronald M. Evans focuses on Cell biology, Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Cancer research and Nuclear receptor. Ronald M. Evans has included themes like Genetics, Cell and Circadian clock in his Cell biology study. His Internal medicine research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Farnesoid X receptor and Oncology.

His study in Endocrinology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Fexaramine and FGF19, FGF15. The study incorporates disciplines such as Chromatin, Receptor and Regulation of gene expression in addition to Nuclear receptor. His work in Receptor addresses subjects such as Retinoid X receptor, which are connected to disciplines such as Rhodopsin-like receptors, Class C GPCR, PELP-1, Retinoid X receptor alpha and Pharmacology.
