Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

Albert Hofman mostly deals with Internal medicine, Genome-wide association study, Rotterdam Study, Genetics and Risk factor. His study in Internal medicine is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Endocrinology, Surgery and Cardiology. His Genome-wide association study study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Allele, Genetic association, Locus and Case-control study.

His Rotterdam Study study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Dementia and Hazard ratio. His study looks at the relationship between Genetics and topics such as Body mass index, which overlap with FTO gene. His studies in Cohort study integrate themes in fields like Pediatrics and Cohort.

His most cited work include:

  • Vascular dementia Diagnostic criteria for research studies: Report of the NINDS‐AIREN International Workshop* (3919 citations)
  • Biological, clinical and population relevance of 95 loci for blood lipids (2804 citations)
  • Meta-analysis of 74,046 individuals identifies 11 new susceptibility loci for Alzheimer's disease (2614 citations)

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

Internal medicine, Rotterdam Study, Genetics, Genome-wide association study and Endocrinology are his primary areas of study. Albert Hofman studied Internal medicine and Cardiology that intersect with Blood pressure. Albert Hofman interconnects Stroke, Dementia and Hazard ratio in the investigation of issues within Rotterdam Study.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Meta-analysis, Genetic association, Bioinformatics and Candidate gene in addition to Genome-wide association study. His Prospective cohort study study incorporates themes from Pregnancy and Pediatrics. His Cohort study research includes elements of Epidemiology and Cohort.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (47.98%)
  • Rotterdam Study (35.36%)
  • Genetics (20.38%)

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

  • Internal medicine (47.98%)
  • Rotterdam Study (35.36%)
  • Genome-wide association study (20.45%)

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

Albert Hofman focuses on Internal medicine, Rotterdam Study, Genome-wide association study, Genetics and Prospective cohort study. Albert Hofman combines subjects such as Endocrinology and Cardiology with his study of Internal medicine. His Cardiology research includes themes of Stroke and Blood pressure.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Physical therapy, Proportional hazards model and Hazard ratio. The various areas that Albert Hofman examines in his Genome-wide association study study include Quantitative trait locus, Genetic association, Bioinformatics and Medical genetics. He has included themes like Pediatrics and Cohort in his Prospective cohort study study.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Trends in adult body-mass index in 200 countries from 1975 to 2014: A pooled analysis of 1698 population-based measurement studies with 19.2 million participants (2278 citations)
  • Worldwide trends in body-mass index, underweight, overweight, and obesity from 1975 to 2016: a pooled analysis of 2416 population-based measurement studies in 128·9 million children, adolescents, and adults (2180 citations)
  • Worldwide trends in diabetes since 1980: a pooled analysis of 751 population-based studies with 4.4 million participants (1737 citations)
