Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Genetics

His primary areas of investigation include Angiogenesis, Vascular endothelial growth factor, Cell biology, Vascular endothelial growth factor A and Growth factor. His Angiogenesis study combines topics in areas such as Endothelial stem cell, Vasculogenesis and Immunology. His research in Endothelial stem cell intersects with topics in Receptor tyrosine kinase and Fibroblast growth factor.

His Vascular endothelial growth factor research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Receptor, Angiopoietin receptor and Glioma. Werner Risau has included themes like Embryonic stem cell, Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor Family and Endothelium in his Cell biology study. The concepts of his Vascular endothelial growth factor A study are interwoven with issues in Endocrinology and Hypoxia.

His most cited work include:

  • Mechanisms of angiogenesis (4852 citations)
  • Abnormal blood vessel development and lethality in embryos lacking a single VEGF allele (3700 citations)
  • Vascular endothelial growth factor is a potential tumour angiogenesis factor in human gliomas in vivo. (2116 citations)

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

Werner Risau mainly investigates Cell biology, Angiogenesis, Vascular endothelial growth factor, Vascular endothelial growth factor A and Molecular biology. Werner Risau has researched Cell biology in several fields, including Vasculogenesis, Endothelium, Immunology and Blood–brain barrier. His Angiogenesis research integrates issues from Endothelial stem cell, Growth factor and Fibroblast growth factor.

His Vascular endothelial growth factor study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Receptor, Endocrinology, Glioma and Pathology. His Vascular endothelial growth factor A research includes elements of Hypoxia and Vascular permeability. His research on Molecular biology also deals with topics like

  • Antibody which is related to area like Antigen,
  • Gene expression which connect with Transcription factor.

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 1997-2008)?

  • Cell biology (52.23%)
  • Angiogenesis (43.31%)
  • Vascular endothelial growth factor (34.39%)

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

Werner Risau focuses on Cell biology, Angiogenesis, Vascular endothelial growth factor, Vascular endothelial growth factor A and Molecular biology. His work deals with themes such as Apoptosis, Programmed cell death and Endothelium, which intersect with Cell biology. His Angiogenesis study contributes to a more complete understanding of Cancer research.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Vasculogenesis, Endocrinology and Receptor in addition to Vascular endothelial growth factor. Werner Risau studies Vascular endothelial growth factor C which is a part of Vascular endothelial growth factor A. His research integrates issues of Angioblast and Immunology in his study of Blood vessel.

Between 1997 and 2008, his most popular works were:

  • Roles of ephrinB ligands and EphB receptors in cardiovascular development: demarcation of arterial/venous domains, vascular morphogenesis, and sprouting angiogenesis (925 citations)
  • Vascular endothelial growth factor induces VE-cadherin tyrosine phosphorylation in endothelial cells (595 citations)
  • Vascular endothelial growth factor induces endothelial fenestrations in vitro. (554 citations)
