Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Enzyme

His main research concerns Blood–brain barrier, Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Central nervous system and Neuroscience. His Blood–brain barrier study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Cerebrospinal fluid, Immunology, Cytokine, Neuroinflammation and Parenchyma. The Internal medicine study which covers Extracellular that intersects with Exosome, Blood plasma, Biomarker and Alpha-synuclein.

In his work, Transmembrane protein is strongly intertwined with Transporter, which is a subfield of Endocrinology. His research integrates issues of Oxidative stress, Ratón, Receptor, Interleukin and Pharmacology in his study of Central nervous system. When carried out as part of a general Neuroscience research project, his work on Hippocampus is frequently linked to work in Extramural, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study.

His most cited work include:

  • Leptin enters the brain by a saturable system independent of insulin. (1083 citations)
  • Transport of brain-derived neurotrophic factor across the blood-brain barrier (955 citations)
  • Ghrelin controls hippocampal spine synapse density and memory performance (647 citations)

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

William A. Banks focuses on Blood–brain barrier, Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Central nervous system and Neuroscience. He interconnects Transporter, Immunology, Cytokine, Cell biology and Pharmacology in the investigation of issues within Blood–brain barrier. His research investigates the connection between Cytokine and topics such as Immune system that intersect with issues in Neuroinflammation.

Internal medicine is closely attributed to Parenchyma in his research. His studies in Endocrinology integrate themes in fields like Receptor and Cerebrospinal fluid. The concepts of his Central nervous system study are interwoven with issues in Amyloid beta, Peptide, Ratón, Alzheimer's disease and Peptide transport.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Blood–brain barrier (78.46%)
  • Internal medicine (68.04%)
  • Endocrinology (66.67%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Blood–brain barrier (78.46%)
  • Endocrinology (66.67%)
  • Internal medicine (68.04%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Blood–brain barrier, Endocrinology, Internal medicine, Central nervous system and Neuroscience. The various areas that William A. Banks examines in his Blood–brain barrier study include Insulin, Disease, Tight junction, Cell biology and Transcytosis. His work deals with themes such as Inflammation, Apolipoprotein E and Cerebrospinal fluid, which intersect with Endocrinology.

His Internal medicine research incorporates themes from Diabetes mellitus and Parenchyma. His work is dedicated to discovering how Central nervous system, Amyloid beta are connected with Cell specific and other disciplines. His work carried out in the field of Neuroscience brings together such families of science as Microvesicles, Neuroinflammation, Immune system and Basement membrane.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The Transport Mechanism of Extracellular Vesicles at the Blood-Brain Barrier. (87 citations)
  • Neuroimmune Axes of the Blood–Brain Barriers and Blood–Brain Interfaces: Bases for Physiological Regulation, Disease States, and Pharmacological Interventions (84 citations)
  • Gut reactions: How the blood-brain barrier connects the microbiome and the brain (55 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Enzyme

His primary scientific interests are in Blood–brain barrier, Central nervous system, Neuroscience, Internal medicine and Endocrinology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Exosome, Microvesicles, Immune system, Receptor and Transcytosis in addition to Blood–brain barrier. The Central nervous system study combines topics in areas such as Endothelial stem cell, Nasal administration and Insulin, Insulin resistance.

His Neuroscience research integrates issues from Hormone metabolism, Disease and Small molecule. The study of Internal medicine is intertwined with the study of Carbonic anhydrase inhibitor in a number of ways. His Endocrinology research incorporates elements of Cerebrospinal fluid and Edema.
