Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Diabetes mellitus

His scientific interests lie mostly in Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Risk factor, Cohort study and Diabetes mellitus. His work carried out in the field of Internal medicine brings together such families of science as Surgery and Cardiology. His Cardiology research incorporates themes from Fibrinogen, Incidence and Blood pressure.

His study looks at the intersection of Endocrinology and topics like Gastroenterology with Case-control study and Genotype. His work on Diet and cancer as part of general Cohort study research is often related to Risk assessment, thus linking different fields of science. His research in Diabetes mellitus intersects with topics in Odds ratio, Copeptin, Obesity and Quartile.

His most cited work include:

  • Genetic variants in novel pathways influence blood pressure and cardiovascular disease risk (1543 citations)
  • General and abdominal adiposity and risk of death in Europe. (1526 citations)
  • Ankle brachial index combined with Framingham risk score to predict cardiovascular events and mortality: A meta-analysis (1342 citations)

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

Bo Hedblad focuses on Internal medicine, Cardiology, Incidence, Endocrinology and Prospective cohort study. His research is interdisciplinary, bridging the disciplines of Surgery and Internal medicine. The Cardiology study combines topics in areas such as Asymptomatic, Vascular disease and Orthostatic vital signs.

His research integrates issues of Cohort study, Gastroenterology, Quartile, Hazard ratio and Cohort in his study of Incidence. His Endocrinology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Odds ratio and Diet and cancer. His work in Risk factor covers topics such as Relative risk which are related to areas like Overweight.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (75.07%)
  • Cardiology (31.30%)
  • Incidence (27.85%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2020)?

  • Internal medicine (75.07%)
  • Cardiology (31.30%)
  • Diet and cancer (14.06%)

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

Internal medicine, Cardiology, Diet and cancer, Endocrinology and Incidence are his primary areas of study. His research investigates the connection between Internal medicine and topics such as Diabetes mellitus that intersect with problems in Natriuretic peptide. His study looks at the relationship between Cardiology and topics such as Blood pressure, which overlap with Genome-wide association study.

His Endocrinology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Disease. Bo Hedblad focuses mostly in the field of Incidence, narrowing it down to matters related to Quartile and, in some cases, Confounding. His study in Hazard ratio is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Proportional hazards model, Surgery and Body mass index.

Between 2012 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Association of Cardiometabolic Multimorbidity With Mortality (289 citations)
  • Genetic associations at 53 loci highlight cell types and biological pathways relevant for kidney function (273 citations)
  • Physical activity and all-cause mortality across levels of overall and abdominal adiposity in European men and women: the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition Study (EPIC) (219 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Cancer

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Internal medicine, Cardiology, Prospective cohort study, Incidence and Cohort. His Internal medicine research includes themes of Diabetes mellitus and Endocrinology. His Cardiology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Surgery and Blood pressure.

His Prospective cohort study study incorporates themes from Gastroenterology, T cell, Cytokine and Risk factor. In his research on the topic of Incidence, Glycation, Haemoglobin A1c, Red blood cell, Atrial fibrillation and Cerebral infarction is strongly related with Red blood cell distribution width. His Cohort research includes elements of Epidemiology, Cohort study and Environmental exposure.
