Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

His primary areas of investigation include Internal medicine, Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Genetic association. His Internal medicine research integrates issues from Endocrinology, Surgery and Cardiology. His Cardiology research includes themes of Cohort study and Blood pressure.

His work focuses on many connections between Genome-wide association study and other disciplines, such as Disease, that overlap with his field of interest in Vascular disease. His study looks at the relationship between Genetic association and fields such as Quantitative trait locus, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. As part of the same scientific family, Bruce M. Psaty usually focuses on Risk factor, concentrating on Odds ratio and intersecting with Case-control study.

His most cited work include:

  • The cardiovascular health study: Design and rationale (3187 citations)
  • Biological, clinical and population relevance of 95 loci for blood lipids (2804 citations)
  • Meta-analysis of 74,046 individuals identifies 11 new susceptibility loci for Alzheimer's disease (2614 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Internal medicine, Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Cardiology and Single-nucleotide polymorphism. His Internal medicine study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Endocrinology and Surgery. His study in Genome-wide association study is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Bioinformatics, Meta-analysis, Allele, Genetic association and Locus.

The various areas that Bruce M. Psaty examines in his Genetic association study include Quantitative trait locus, Genetic architecture and Linkage disequilibrium. His research integrates issues of Cohort study, Blood pressure and Hazard ratio in his study of Cardiology. His Risk factor research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Odds ratio, Epidemiology and Case-control study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (62.21%)
  • Genome-wide association study (50.98%)
  • Genetics (45.21%)

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

  • Internal medicine (62.21%)
  • Genome-wide association study (50.98%)
  • Genetics (45.21%)

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

Bruce M. Psaty spends much of his time researching Internal medicine, Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Cardiology and Genetic association. His Internal medicine study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Endocrinology. His Genome-wide association study study deals with the bigger picture of Single-nucleotide polymorphism.

Bruce M. Psaty works mostly in the field of Single-nucleotide polymorphism, limiting it down to concerns involving Locus and, occasionally, Meta-analysis. His Cardiology research incorporates themes from Cardiovascular health and Epidemiology. Bruce M. Psaty has included themes like Mendelian randomization and Computational biology in his Genetic association study.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Novel genetic associations for blood pressure identified via gene-alcohol interaction in up to 570K individuals across multiple ancestries (799 citations)
  • Novel genetic associations for blood pressure identified via gene-alcohol interaction in up to 570K individuals across multiple ancestries (799 citations)
  • Unraveling the polygenic architecture of complex traits using blood eQTL metaanalysis (293 citations)
