Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Enzyme
  • Biochemistry

His primary areas of investigation include Animal science, Endocrinology, Internal medicine, Weight gain and Broiler. His studies deal with areas such as Abdominal fat, Body weight, Carcass composition, Blood ph and Acid–base homeostasis as well as Animal science. The various areas that Shmuel Hurwitz examines in his Endocrinology study include Calcium metabolism and Calcium.

Shmuel Hurwitz performs integrative Internal medicine and Growth retardation research in his work. His work in Weight gain tackles topics such as Triiodothyronine which are related to areas like Food intake. His study on Broiler also encompasses disciplines like

  • Feed conversion ratio that intertwine with fields like Dietary protein,
  • Accelerated Growth and related Hemodynamics and Hematocrit.

His most cited work include:

  • The Energy Requirements and Performance of Growing Chickens and Turkeys as Affected by Environmental Temperature (193 citations)
  • Preparation of viable isolated bovine parathyroid cells. (188 citations)
  • Induction of Thermotolerance in Male Broiler Chickens by Temperature Conditioning at an Early Age (187 citations)

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

Shmuel Hurwitz mostly deals with Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Animal science, Calcium and Biochemistry. Medullary cavity is closely connected to Calcium-binding protein in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Endocrinology. His Animal science study incorporates themes from Abdominal fat, Body weight, Feed conversion ratio and Weight gain.

In the field of Calcium, his study on Calcium metabolism, Dietary calcium and Calbindin overlaps with subjects such as Fowl. In general Biochemistry study, his work on Amino acid, In vitro and Fatty acid often relates to the realm of In vivo, thereby connecting several areas of interest. His Duodenum research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Intestinal absorption, Jejunum, Food science and Ileum.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (49.10%)
  • Endocrinology (47.31%)
  • Animal science (30.54%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 1994-2009)?

  • Internal medicine (49.10%)
  • Endocrinology (47.31%)
  • Animal science (30.54%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Animal science, Broiler and Weight gain. His study in Internal medicine is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Regulation of gene expression, Gene expression and Cellular differentiation. The concepts of his Endocrinology study are interwoven with issues in Chondrocyte, Desensitization and G protein.

His work carried out in the field of Animal science brings together such families of science as Thermoregulation, Body weight and Rest period. Shmuel Hurwitz focuses mostly in the field of Broiler, narrowing it down to topics relating to Feed conversion ratio and, in certain cases, Abdominal fat and Food science. Shmuel Hurwitz works mostly in the field of Weight gain, limiting it down to concerns involving Triiodothyronine and, occasionally, Accelerated Growth, Food intake and Hematocrit.

Between 1994 and 2009, his most popular works were:

  • Induction of Thermotolerance in Male Broiler Chickens by Temperature Conditioning at an Early Age (187 citations)
  • Blood system response of chickens to changes in environmental temperature (151 citations)
  • Physiological responses of chickens and turkeys to relative humidity during exposure to high ambient temperature (132 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Enzyme
  • Biochemistry

Shmuel Hurwitz focuses on Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Weight gain, Animal science and Broiler. When carried out as part of a general Internal medicine research project, his work on Parathyroid hormone, Receptor, Calcium metabolism and Food intake is frequently linked to work in Diurnal cycle, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. His work on Blood ph and Hematocrit as part of his general Endocrinology study is frequently connected to Physiological responses and Skin temperature, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science.

His study explores the link between Weight gain and topics such as Triiodothyronine that cross with problems in Hemodynamics and Accelerated Growth. His research in Animal science intersects with topics in Thermoregulation, Hypervolemia and Acid–base homeostasis. His Broiler research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Amino acid, Feed conversion ratio and Low-protein diet.
