Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Cancer

Her primary areas of investigation include Cell biology, Extracellular matrix, Matrix metalloproteinase, Immunology and Cancer research. Her Cell biology research includes themes of Endocrinology, Internal medicine, Angiogenesis, Cellular differentiation and Morphogenesis. Her Extracellular matrix research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Integrin, Cell signaling, Signal transduction and Basement membrane.

The study of Matrix metalloproteinase is intertwined with the study of Downregulation and upregulation in a number of ways. Her Immunology research includes elements of Extracellular and Breast cancer. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Cancer cell, Cancer, Carcinogenesis and Cell type.

Her most cited work include:

  • Inflammation and cancer (10480 citations)
  • New functions for the matrix metalloproteinases in cancer progression (4866 citations)
  • How Matrix Metalloproteinases Regulate Cell Behavior (3221 citations)

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

Her primary areas of study are Cell biology, Matrix metalloproteinase, Extracellular matrix, Cancer research and Molecular biology. Her research integrates issues of Endocrinology, Cellular differentiation, Mammary gland, Internal medicine and Morphogenesis in her study of Cell biology. Her studies in Matrix metalloproteinase integrate themes in fields like Wound healing, Angiogenesis and Pathology.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Extracellular, Integrin, Signal transduction and Basement membrane in addition to Extracellular matrix. Her Cancer research study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Cancer, Breast cancer, Metastasis and Immunology. Her Molecular biology research also works with subjects such as

  • Collagenase together with Fibroblast,
  • Secretion that connect with fields like Macrophage.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Cell biology (41.17%)
  • Matrix metalloproteinase (22.37%)
  • Extracellular matrix (21.43%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2012-2021)?

  • Cancer research (19.55%)
  • Metastasis (9.40%)
  • Cancer (10.15%)

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

Her main research concerns Cancer research, Metastasis, Cancer, Breast cancer and Cell biology. Her work deals with themes such as Cancer cell, PIM1, Stroma and Carcinogenesis, which intersect with Cancer research. Zena Werb interconnects Extracellular matrix, Stromal cell, Pathology and MMP9 in the investigation of issues within Metastasis.

Her Extracellular matrix study frequently links to other fields, such as Matrix metalloproteinase. In her study, Tumor initiation is inextricably linked to Immune system, which falls within the broad field of Cancer. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Cell, Cellular differentiation and Mammary gland.

Between 2012 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Remodelling the extracellular matrix in development and disease. (1608 citations)
  • The Cancer Stem Cell Niche: How Essential Is the Niche in Regulating Stemness of Tumor Cells? (692 citations)
  • Single-cell analysis reveals a stem-cell program in human metastatic breast cancer cells. (499 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Cancer

Zena Werb mainly investigates Cell biology, Tumor microenvironment, Cancer research, Immunology and Metastasis. Cell biology is represented through her Extracellular matrix and Stem cell research. Her research investigates the connection between Extracellular matrix and topics such as Matrix metalloproteinase that intersect with issues in Disease progression and Fibrosis.

Her work deals with themes such as Cancer cell, Cancer, Breast cancer, Carcinogenesis and Cytotoxic T cell, which intersect with Cancer research. Her studies in Immunology integrate themes in fields like Pregnancy, Preeclampsia, Trophoblast, Andrology and Tumor progression. The various areas that Zena Werb examines in her Metastasis study include Angiogenesis, microRNA, Cellular differentiation and Pathology.
