Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Disease
  • Internal medicine
  • World War II

His scientific interests lie mostly in Global health, Demography, Environmental health, Gerontology and Mortality rate. His Global health research focuses on Disease and how it relates to Depression and MEDLINE. His research integrates issues of Verbal autopsy, Incidence, Disability-adjusted life year and Developing country, Millennium Development Goals in his study of Demography.

His study in Environmental health is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Risk assessment, Public health, Population health, Disease burden and Risk factor. His studies deal with areas such as Quality-adjusted life year, Overweight, Years of potential life lost, Injury prevention and Cohort as well as Gerontology. His research in Mortality rate intersects with topics in Epidemiology, Cause of death, Stroke, Breast cancer and Pediatrics.

His most cited work include:

  • Global and regional mortality from 235 causes of death for 20 age groups in 1990 and 2010: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2010 (8830 citations)
  • A comparative risk assessment of burden of disease and injury attributable to 67 risk factors and risk factor clusters in 21 regions, 1990-2010: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2010 (7776 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national prevalence of overweight and obesity in children and adults during 1980–2013: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2013 (6893 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Demography, Environmental health, Global health, Mortality rate and Public health. His Demography research includes themes of Verbal autopsy, Incidence, Gerontology, Life expectancy and Developing country. His work carried out in the field of Environmental health brings together such families of science as Injury prevention, Burden of disease, Disease, Population health and Risk factor.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Young adult, Quality-adjusted life year and Disease burden in addition to Global health. In his research on the topic of Mortality rate, Infant mortality is strongly related with Child mortality. His Public health study deals with Epidemiology intersecting with Cause of death.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Demography (37.57%)
  • Environmental health (32.98%)
  • Global health (33.33%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Demography (37.57%)
  • Cause of death (24.16%)
  • Years of potential life lost (17.99%)

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

His primary areas of study are Demography, Cause of death, Years of potential life lost, Environmental health and Global health. His study in the field of Mortality rate also crosses realms of Estimation. His Cause of death research focuses on subjects like Developed country, which are linked to Data quality.

The various areas that Alan D. Lopez examines in his Years of potential life lost study include Injury prevention and Occupational safety and health. The Environmental health study combines topics in areas such as Public health and Risk factor. His studies examine the connections between Global health and genetics, as well as such issues in Disease burden, with regards to Population health.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Health effects of dietary risks in 195 countries, 1990–2017: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2017 (904 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national burden of stroke, 1990-2016: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2016 (564 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national sepsis incidence and mortality, 1990–2017: analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study (454 citations)

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

  • Disease
  • Internal medicine
  • World War II

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Demography, Global health, Mortality rate, Years of potential life lost and Environmental health. His Demography research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Incidence, Burden of disease, Demographic change, Demographic transition and Birth rate. His studies deal with areas such as Disease burden, Life expectancy and Quality-adjusted life year as well as Global health.

His biological study deals with issues like Cause of death, which deal with fields such as Prospective cohort study. His work in Years of potential life lost covers topics such as Disease which are related to areas like COPD and Population health. His Environmental health study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Epidemiology, Public health and Risk factor.
