Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Neuroscience

Stephen G. Waxman mostly deals with Sodium channel, Neuroscience, Dorsal root ganglion, Biophysics and Electrophysiology. Stephen G. Waxman has researched Sodium channel in several fields, including Nociception, Nav1.9 and Cell biology. His Neuroscience research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Nociceptor, Ion channel and Tetrodotoxin.

His studies in Dorsal root ganglion integrate themes in fields like Anesthesia, Sciatic nerve, Axotomy, Sensory neuron and Patch clamp. His work deals with themes such as HEK 293 cells, Nerve conduction velocity and Intracellular, which intersect with Biophysics. His Electrophysiology research incorporates themes from Neuroglia, Membrane potential and Pharmacology.

His most cited work include:

  • Ionic mechanisms of anoxic injury in mammalian CNS white matter: role of Na+ channels and Na(+)-Ca2+ exchanger (617 citations)
  • Type III sodium channel mRNA is expressed in embryonic but not adult spinal sensory neurons, and is reexpressed following axotomy. (488 citations)
  • Activated Microglia Contribute to the Maintenance of Chronic Pain after Spinal Cord Injury (482 citations)

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

His main research concerns Neuroscience, Sodium channel, Dorsal root ganglion, Cell biology and Anatomy. In his research on the topic of Neuroscience, Membrane is strongly related with Biophysics. Stephen G. Waxman works in the field of Sodium channel, focusing on NAV1 in particular.

His study looks at the relationship between Dorsal root ganglion and topics such as Neuropathic pain, which overlap with Chronic pain. His study focuses on the intersection of Axon and fields such as Myelin with connections in the field of Optic nerve. The study incorporates disciplines such as Neuron and Pathology in addition to Spinal cord.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (66.85%)
  • Sodium channel (64.32%)
  • Dorsal root ganglion (28.00%)

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

  • Sodium channel (64.32%)
  • Neuroscience (66.85%)
  • Dorsal root ganglion (28.00%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Sodium channel, Neuroscience, Dorsal root ganglion, Neuropathic pain and NAV1. His study in Sodium channel is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Peripheral neuropathy, Mutation, Erythromelalgia, Cell biology and Pharmacology. His Erythromelalgia study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Paroxysmal extreme pain disorder and Genetic model.

His research in Neuroscience intersects with topics in Nociceptor and Nociception. He interconnects Patch clamp, Electrophysiology, Nav1.9, Channelopathy and Trigeminal ganglion in the investigation of issues within Dorsal root ganglion. His Neuropathic pain study also includes

  • Bioinformatics which connect with Diabetes mellitus,
  • Dysgenesis which intersects with area such as Spinal cord injury.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Regulating excitability of peripheral afferents: emerging ion channel targets. (234 citations)
  • A painful neuropathy-associated Nav1.7 mutant leads to time-dependent degeneration of small-diameter axons associated with intracellular Ca2+ dysregulation and decrease in ATP levels. (189 citations)
  • Gain-of-function mutations in sodium channel Na(v)1.9 in painful neuropathy. (177 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Neuroscience

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Sodium channel, Neuroscience, Dorsal root ganglion, Anesthesia and Chronic pain. His work carried out in the field of Sodium channel brings together such families of science as Peripheral neuropathy, Mutation, Missense mutation, Erythromelalgia and Membrane potential. The Erythromelalgia study combines topics in areas such as Paroxysmal extreme pain disorder and Genetic model.

He has included themes like NAV1 and Nociceptor, Nociception in his Neuroscience study. His Dorsal root ganglion research incorporates elements of Diabetes mellitus and Nav1.9. His studies deal with areas such as Pharmacogenomics, Pharmacotherapy, Induced pluripotent stem cell, Acute pain and Peripheral nervous system as well as Chronic pain.
