What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Cancer

Aaron R. Folsom spends much of his time researching Internal medicine, Risk factor, Prospective cohort study, Cohort study and Relative risk. His Internal medicine study combines topics in areas such as Diabetes mellitus, Endocrinology, Surgery and Cardiology. His Risk factor research includes themes of Odds ratio, Incidence, Lower risk, Confidence interval and Von Willebrand factor.

He usually deals with Prospective cohort study and limits it to topics linked to Meta-analysis and Genome-wide association study and Genetics. Within one scientific family, he focuses on topics pertaining to Proportional hazards model under Cohort study, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Hazard ratio. His Relative risk study also includes fields such as

  • Breast cancer together with Gynecology,
  • Menopause which intersects with area such as Obstetrics.

His most cited work include:

  • Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis: Objectives and Design (2631 citations)
  • Association analyses of 249,796 individuals reveal 18 new loci associated with body mass index (2348 citations)
  • Association analyses of 249,796 individuals reveal 18 new loci associated with body mass index (2348 citations)

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

Aaron R. Folsom mainly focuses on Internal medicine, Prospective cohort study, Cardiology, Risk factor and Endocrinology. His research ties Surgery and Internal medicine together. His work carried out in the field of Prospective cohort study brings together such families of science as Cancer, Epidemiology, Gastroenterology and Relative risk, Confidence interval.

He has included themes like Stroke, Disease and Blood pressure in his Cardiology study. In his study, Obesity is inextricably linked to Body mass index, which falls within the broad field of Risk factor. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Endocrinology, Von Willebrand factor is strongly linked to Fibrinogen.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (68.95%)
  • Prospective cohort study (27.83%)
  • Cardiology (27.20%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Internal medicine (68.95%)
  • Cardiology (27.20%)
  • Hazard ratio (15.96%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Internal medicine, Cardiology, Hazard ratio, Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities and Prospective cohort study. His work is connected to Heart failure, Proportional hazards model, Aric study, Cohort and Confidence interval, as a part of Internal medicine. His Cardiology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Stroke, Abdominal aortic aneurysm, Epidemiology and Blood pressure.

His research on Hazard ratio also deals with topics like

  • Incidence which is related to area like Cancer,
  • Body mass index together with Obesity. His studies in Prospective cohort study integrate themes in fields like Meta-analysis, Pulmonary embolism, Cohort study and Risk factor. In most of his Risk factor studies, his work intersects topics such as Surgery.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Genetic associations at 53 loci highlight cell types and biological pathways relevant for kidney function (273 citations)
  • Dietary carbohydrate intake and mortality: a prospective cohort study and meta-analysis. (202 citations)
  • Ten-year association of coronary artery calcium with atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) events: the multi-ethnic study of atherosclerosis (MESA). (144 citations)
