Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Cancer
  • DNA

William C. Hahn mostly deals with Cancer research, Genetics, Cell biology, Cancer cell and Telomerase. His research in Cancer research intersects with topics in Cell, Carcinogenesis, Cancer, Oncogene and Immunology. As part of his studies on Cell biology, William C. Hahn frequently links adjacent subjects like Transcription factor.

His studies deal with areas such as Epithelial–mesenchymal transition and KRAS as well as Cancer cell. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Telomerase, Cytotoxic T cell is strongly linked to Antigen. His work carried out in the field of Telomerase reverse transcriptase brings together such families of science as Telomere, Cell culture, Cell division and Molecular biology.

His most cited work include:

  • Creation of human tumour cells with defined genetic elements (2080 citations)
  • Creation of human tumour cells with defined genetic elements (2080 citations)
  • BET Bromodomain Inhibition as a Therapeutic Strategy to Target c-Myc (1959 citations)

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

William C. Hahn mainly focuses on Cancer research, Cancer, Genetics, Cell biology and Gene. His Cancer research research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Carcinogenesis, Cancer cell, Oncogene, Kinase and Prostate cancer. His Cancer study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Malignant transformation, Bioinformatics, Functional genomics, Genomics and Computational biology.

His work is connected to Allele and Mutation, as a part of Genetics. His Cell biology research incorporates themes from Telomere, Molecular biology, Transcription factor and Telomerase. His work in Telomere tackles topics such as Telomerase reverse transcriptase which are related to areas like Cell culture.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cancer research (71.03%)
  • Cancer (42.31%)
  • Genetics (32.95%)

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

  • Cancer research (71.03%)
  • Cancer (42.31%)
  • Computational biology (17.18%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Cancer research, Cancer, Computational biology, Gene and CRISPR. The study incorporates disciplines such as Cell culture, Pancreatic cancer, Cell growth, RNA interference and Prostate cancer in addition to Cancer research. His Cancer research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Mutation, Genome editing and DNA methylation.

His Computational biology study combines topics in areas such as Cell, Phenotype, Genome, Genome scale and Cancer cell lines. His Gene study is concerned with the larger field of Genetics. His Cancer cell study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as KRAS, Somatic cell, Glutathione and Cell biology.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Next-generation characterization of the Cancer Cell Line Encyclopedia (576 citations)
  • Next-generation characterization of the Cancer Cell Line Encyclopedia (576 citations)
  • Organoid Modeling of the Tumor Immune Microenvironment. (302 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Cancer
  • DNA

William C. Hahn spends much of his time researching Cancer research, Gene, Cancer, Mutation and Cell biology. His study in Cancer research is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Cell, Cancer cell, Mdm2, Prostate cancer and Kinase. To a larger extent, he studies Genetics with the aim of understanding Gene.

His Cancer research incorporates themes from Interferon, Regulation of gene expression and Adenosine deaminase. His research investigates the link between Mutation and topics such as Mutant that cross with problems in Oncogene, Function, KRAS and Effector. He interconnects Oxidative stress, Cell culture, ADAR and Transcription factor, Chromatin remodeling in the investigation of issues within Cell biology.
