Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Immune system
  • Gene
  • Internal medicine

Immunology, Fas ligand, Immune system, Apoptosis and Immune privilege are his primary areas of study. His Fas ligand research integrates issues from Fas receptor, Angiogenesis, Neovascularization and Interleukin 10. Thomas A. Ferguson combines subjects such as Cancer research, Messenger RNA and Ratón with his study of Fas receptor.

His Immune system research includes elements of Internal medicine and Programmed cell death. His Tumor cell death and Immunogenic cell death study, which is part of a larger body of work in Programmed cell death, is frequently linked to Host tissue and Effective response, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Apoptosis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Transplantation, Corneal transplantation, Immune tolerance and Cell biology.

His most cited work include:

  • Guidelines for the use and interpretation of assays for monitoring autophagy (3rd edition) (4170 citations)
  • Fas Ligand-Induced Apoptosis as a Mechanism of Immune Privilege (1839 citations)
  • IMMUNOGENIC AND TOLEROGENIC CELL DEATH (734 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Immunology, Immune system, Fas ligand, Cell biology and Apoptosis. His studies deal with areas such as Molecular biology, Cytotoxic T cell, Programmed cell death and Cytokine as well as Immune system. His Programmed cell death research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Chaperone-mediated autophagy, Autoimmunity, Computational biology and Autolysosome.

His Fas ligand research incorporates themes from Cancer research, Angiogenesis, Neovascularization, Fas receptor and Interleukin 10. The Cell biology study combines topics in areas such as Autophagy, In vitro, Caspase, Caspase 8 and Retina. His studies examine the connections between Apoptosis and genetics, as well as such issues in Acquired immune system, with regards to Interleukin 15.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (52.80%)
  • Immune system (39.20%)
  • Fas ligand (30.40%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2021)?

  • Autophagy (12.00%)
  • Cell biology (24.80%)
  • Immunology (52.80%)

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

Thomas A. Ferguson mainly focuses on Autophagy, Cell biology, Immunology, ATG5 and Visual phototransduction. His Autophagy study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Programmed cell death, Dry Eye Syndromes and Homeostasis. His research in Programmed cell death intersects with topics in Chaperone-mediated autophagy, Computational biology and Autolysosome.

The study incorporates disciplines such as MAP1LC3B, Sequestosome 1 and Physiology in addition to Chaperone-mediated autophagy. In the subject of general Cell biology, his work in Phagocytosis is often linked to Interpretation, thereby combining diverse domains of study. His study brings together the fields of Fas ligand and Immunology.

Between 2011 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Guidelines for the use and interpretation of assays for monitoring autophagy (3rd edition) (4170 citations)
  • The Rd8 Mutation of the Crb1 Gene Is Present in Vendor Lines of C57BL/6N Mice and Embryonic Stem Cells, and Confounds Ocular Induced Mutant Phenotypes (445 citations)
  • Noncanonical autophagy promotes the visual cycle (204 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Immune system
  • Internal medicine

Thomas A. Ferguson focuses on Cell biology, Autophagy, Visual phototransduction, Retinal degeneration and Programmed cell death. Cell biology combines with fields such as Interpretation, Arama, Humanities, Retinoid and Microtubule-associated protein in his research. In most of his Autophagy studies, his work intersects topics such as Physiology.

His Visual phototransduction research includes themes of Retinal pigment epithelium, Phagosome, Phagocytosis and ATG5. His Retinal degeneration study incorporates themes from Embryonic stem cell and Protein degradation. His studies in Programmed cell death integrate themes in fields like BECN1, Autolysosome, MAP1LC3B, Chaperone-mediated autophagy and Computational biology.
