Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

Her primary scientific interests are in Genome-wide association study, Internal medicine, Depression, Psychiatry and Anxiety. Her Genome-wide association study research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Genetic association, Locus and Genetic architecture. The various areas that Brenda W.J.H. Penninx examines in her Internal medicine study include Diabetes mellitus and Endocrinology.

Her Depression research integrates issues from Odds ratio, Gerontology, Cohort study, Metabolic syndrome and Severity of illness. The concepts of her Psychiatry study are interwoven with issues in Neuroticism and Disease. Brenda W.J.H. Penninx has researched Anxiety in several fields, including Schizophrenia, Clinical psychology and Comorbidity.

Her most cited work include:

  • Biological, clinical and population relevance of 95 loci for blood lipids (2887 citations)
  • Overweight, Obesity, and Depression A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis of Longitudinal Studies (2601 citations)
  • Association analyses of 249,796 individuals reveal 18 new loci associated with body mass index (2399 citations)

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

Her primary areas of study are Anxiety, Depression, Psychiatry, Clinical psychology and Internal medicine. Her Anxiety study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Mood, Psychopathology and Comorbidity. Her research on Depression focuses in particular on Major depressive disorder.

Her Major depressive disorder research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Antidepressant, Schizophrenia, Genome-wide association study and Genetic association. Brenda W.J.H. Penninx interconnects Big Five personality traits, Neuroticism and Personality in the investigation of issues within Psychiatry. Her Internal medicine research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Endocrinology and Oncology.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Anxiety (81.31%)
  • Depression (69.18%)
  • Psychiatry (68.98%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Depression (69.18%)
  • Anxiety (81.31%)
  • Major depressive disorder (37.12%)

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

Her primary areas of investigation include Depression, Anxiety, Major depressive disorder, Clinical psychology and Internal medicine. Depression is a primary field of her research addressed under Psychiatry. Her study in Anxiety is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Neuroticism, Psychopathology and Comorbidity.

Her Major depressive disorder study combines topics in areas such as Observational study, Schizophrenia, Genome-wide association study, Cohort study and Antidepressant. Her work on Mediation as part of general Clinical psychology study is frequently connected to In patient, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. Her Internal medicine research includes elements of Endocrinology and Oncology.

Between 2018 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Genomic Relationships, Novel Loci, and Pleiotropic Mechanisms across Eight Psychiatric Disorders (351 citations)
  • Depression and obesity: evidence of shared biological mechanisms (173 citations)
  • The genetic architecture of the human cerebral cortex (163 citations)
