Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Asthma

His primary areas of investigation include Environmental health, Air pollution, Asthma, Environmental exposure and Pediatrics. His Environmental health research incorporates themes from Epidemiology, Cohort study, Public health, Cohort and Risk factor. The Risk factor study combines topics in areas such as Relative risk and Cardiology.

His Air pollution study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Pollutant, Meteorology, Air quality index, Particulates and Black smoke. His Asthma research incorporates elements of Surgery and Allergy. His studies deal with areas such as Odds ratio, Attributable risk, Incidence and Disease as well as Pediatrics.

His most cited work include:

  • 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 comparative risk assessment of 79 behavioural, environmental and occupational, and metabolic risks or clusters of risks in 188 countries, 1990-2013: A systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2013 (4452 citations)
  • Air pollution and health. (3268 citations)

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

Bert Brunekreef mainly investigates Environmental health, Air pollution, Asthma, Pediatrics and Allergy. His biological study focuses on Environmental exposure. His study looks at the relationship between Air pollution and fields such as Particulates, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.

His Asthma research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Odds ratio and Incidence. His studies in Pediatrics integrate themes in fields like Overweight and Risk factor. His study in Allergy is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Mite and Sensitization.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental health (35.54%)
  • Air pollution (34.25%)
  • Asthma (24.09%)

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

  • Environmental health (35.54%)
  • Air pollution (34.25%)
  • Asthma (24.09%)

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

Environmental health, Air pollution, Asthma, Cohort and Particulates are his primary areas of study. His research in Environmental health is mostly focused on Environmental exposure. His Air pollution research integrates issues from Nitrogen dioxide, Interquartile range, Pollutant and Spatial variability.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Methylation, DNA methylation, Allergy, Epigenetics and Pediatrics. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Prospective cohort study and Epidemiology. The concepts of his Particulates study are interwoven with issues in Environmental chemistry and Environmental engineering.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Estimates and 25-year trends of the global burden of disease attributable to ambient air pollution: an analysis of data from the Global Burden of Diseases Study 2015 (1882 citations)
  • Global estimates of mortality associated with long-term exposure to outdoor fine particulate matter (517 citations)
  • DNA Methylation in Newborns and Maternal Smoking in Pregnancy: Genome-wide Consortium Meta-analysis (419 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Statistics

His scientific interests lie mostly in Environmental health, Air pollution, Cohort study, Environmental exposure and Odds ratio. His Environmental health research includes elements of Interquartile range, Epidemiology, Confounding, Cohort and Risk factor. His work deals with themes such as Environmental engineering, Pollutant, FEV1/FVC ratio, Spatial variability and Particulates, which intersect with Air pollution.

His Cohort study research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Negatively associated, Genome, Confidence interval, Proportional hazards model and Lung function. The study incorporates disciplines such as Nitrogen dioxide, Regression, Hazard ratio, Prospective cohort study and Air pollutants in addition to Environmental exposure. Bert Brunekreef combines subjects such as Logistic regression and Pediatrics with his study of Odds ratio.
