Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Genetics

His scientific interests lie mostly in Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Internal medicine, Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Genetic association. His research integrates issues of SNP, Bioinformatics, Case-control study and Quantitative trait locus, Genetic architecture in his study of Genome-wide association study. As a member of one scientific family, André G. Uitterlinden mostly works in the field of Genetics, focusing on Body mass index and, on occasion, Obesity and FTO gene.

His studies examine the connections between Internal medicine and genetics, as well as such issues in Endocrinology, with regards to Polymorphism and Haplotype. His study in Single-nucleotide polymorphism is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Framingham Risk Score and Genetic variation. His Genetic association research includes elements of Imputation, Computational biology, Osteoporosis and Atrial fibrillation.

His most cited work include:

  • Biological, clinical and population relevance of 95 loci for blood lipids (2804 citations)
  • Association analyses of 249,796 individuals reveal 18 new loci associated with body mass index (2348 citations)
  • Genome-wide association study identifies novel breast cancer susceptibility loci (2045 citations)

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

André G. Uitterlinden mostly deals with Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Internal medicine, Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Genetic association. The Genome-wide association study study combines topics in areas such as Bioinformatics, Case-control study, Meta-analysis, Quantitative trait locus and Minor allele frequency. His study in Genetics concentrates on Gene, Locus, Allele, Candidate gene and Genetic variation.

His Internal medicine research incorporates themes from Endocrinology and Oncology. His Endocrinology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Genotype and Haplotype. His Genetic association study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Disease and Genetic architecture.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genome-wide association study (47.09%)
  • Genetics (45.69%)
  • Internal medicine (35.98%)

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

  • Genome-wide association study (47.09%)
  • Genetics (45.69%)
  • Internal medicine (35.98%)

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

His main research concerns Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Internal medicine, Genetic association and Single-nucleotide polymorphism. His work carried out in the field of Genome-wide association study brings together such families of science as Candidate gene, Medical genetics, Meta-analysis and Quantitative trait locus, Genetic architecture. His Internal medicine research includes themes of Endocrinology and Oncology.

His Genetic association research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in DNA methylation, Bioinformatics, Disease, Minor allele frequency and Computational biology. André G. Uitterlinden is involved in the study of Single-nucleotide polymorphism that focuses on SNP in particular. André G. Uitterlinden works mostly in the field of Rotterdam Study, limiting it down to topics relating to Bone mineral and, in certain cases, Bone density.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Genome-wide association analyses identify 44 risk variants and refine the genetic architecture of major depression (1131 citations)
  • Novel genetic associations for blood pressure identified via gene-alcohol interaction in up to 570K individuals across multiple ancestries (799 citations)
  • Genetic analysis of over 1 million people identifies 535 new loci associated with blood pressure traits. (284 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Genetics

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Genetic association, Medical genetics and Internal medicine. His Genome-wide association study study is related to the wider topic of Single-nucleotide polymorphism. His Single-nucleotide polymorphism study deals with QRS complex intersecting with Cardiac conduction.

The various areas that André G. Uitterlinden examines in his Genetic association study include Genetic correlation, Coronary artery disease, Case-control study, Disease and Minor allele frequency. André G. Uitterlinden has included themes like Pulse pressure, Blood pressure and Mendelian randomization in his Medical genetics study. His Internal medicine course of study focuses on DNA methylation and Body mass index.
