Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Genetics

Barbara Franke mainly investigates Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, Neuroscience and Candidate gene. Her Genome-wide association study research includes elements of Schizophrenia, Bipolar disorder, Hippocampal formation, Neuroimaging and Genetic architecture. Her Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder study incorporates themes from Conduct disorder, Genetic determinism and Autism spectrum disorder.

Her Candidate gene study also includes

  • Twin study which is related to area like Neurodevelopmental disorder,
  • Phenotype which intersects with area such as Disease. She combines subjects such as Quantitative trait locus and Allele with her study of Single-nucleotide polymorphism. Her Psychiatry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Meta-analysis, Odds ratio and Imputation.

Her most cited work include:

  • Genetic relationship between five psychiatric disorders estimated from genome-wide SNPs (1570 citations)
  • Large recurrent microdeletions associated with schizophrenia (1516 citations)
  • Common variants conferring risk of schizophrenia (1378 citations)

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

Her main research concerns Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, Genetics, Neuroscience, Clinical psychology and Psychiatry. Her biological study deals with issues like Audiology, which deal with fields such as White matter. Her Genetics and Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Candidate gene, Genome-wide association study, Gene and Allele investigations all form part of her Genetics research activities.

Her Genome-wide association study study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Genetic association and Genetic architecture. While the research belongs to areas of Neuroscience, Barbara Franke spends her time largely on the problem of Schizophrenia, intersecting her research to questions surrounding Bipolar disorder. The concepts of her Clinical psychology study are interwoven with issues in Cognition and Aggression.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (34.21%)
  • Genetics (22.62%)
  • Neuroscience (21.38%)

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

  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (34.21%)
  • Clinical psychology (17.10%)
  • Genome-wide association study (16.69%)

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

Her primary areas of investigation include Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, Clinical psychology, Genome-wide association study, Neuroscience and Neuroimaging. Her Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Audiology, Cognition, Neurodevelopmental disorder, Autism spectrum disorder and Comorbidity. Barbara Franke works mostly in the field of Clinical psychology, limiting it down to topics relating to Aggression and, in certain cases, Conduct disorder, Amygdala and Insula, as a part of the same area of interest.

The Genome-wide association study study which covers Meta-analysis that intersects with DNA methylation. Her Neuroscience study which covers Schizophrenia that intersects with Bipolar disorder, Autism, Dementia and Genetic variation. Her Single-nucleotide polymorphism study contributes to a more complete understanding of Genetics.

Between 2017 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Analysis of shared heritability in common disorders of the brain (726 citations)
  • Discovery of the first genome-wide significant risk loci for attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder. (644 citations)
  • Genomic Relationships, Novel Loci, and Pleiotropic Mechanisms across Eight Psychiatric Disorders (242 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Genetics

Her primary areas of study are Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, Clinical psychology, Neuroscience, Autism spectrum disorder and Schizophrenia. Her work deals with themes such as Audiology, Working memory, Impulsivity, Neurodevelopmental disorder and Comorbidity, which intersect with Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Sample size determination and Genetic architecture.

Her research in Autism spectrum disorder intersects with topics in Obsessive-compulsive disorder, Caudate nucleus, Neuroimaging and Brain size. Her Schizophrenia study is concerned with the field of Psychiatry as a whole. Her research integrates issues of Genome-wide association study and Heritability in her study of Genetic association.
