Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Mutation

Her primary scientific interests are in Genetics, Parkin, Mutation, Dystonia and Parkinsonism. Her Parkin study is concerned with the field of Parkinson's disease as a whole. Her Parkinson's disease research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Penetrance and Mutation.

Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Neurological disorder, Internal medicine, SGCE, Pediatrics and Myoclonus. Her work carried out in the field of Parkinsonism brings together such families of science as Degenerative disease, Neuroscience and Age of onset. Christine Klein usually deals with LRRK2 and limits it to topics linked to Genetic testing and Disease.

Her most cited work include:

  • Genome-wide association study reveals genetic risk underlying Parkinson's disease (1493 citations)
  • Phenomenology and classification of dystonia: a consensus update. (1126 citations)
  • Phenotype, genotype, and worldwide genetic penetrance of LRRK2-associated Parkinson's disease: a case-control study (1037 citations)

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

Christine Klein spends much of her time researching Genetics, Dystonia, Parkinson's disease, Disease and Internal medicine. Her work on Genetics deals in particular with Mutation, Gene, Haplotype, Genotype and Mutation. Her work focuses on many connections between Dystonia and other disciplines, such as Movement disorders, that overlap with her field of interest in Psychiatry.

Her Parkinson's disease research includes elements of Central nervous system disease and Degenerative disease. Her Disease research includes themes of Penetrance, Genetic testing and Bioinformatics. As a part of the same scientific study, she usually deals with the Parkin, concentrating on Parkinsonism and frequently concerns with Age of onset.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (31.17%)
  • Dystonia (22.94%)
  • Parkinson's disease (21.36%)

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

  • Parkinson's disease (21.36%)
  • Disease (17.46%)
  • Internal medicine (15.01%)

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

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Parkinson's disease, Disease, Internal medicine, Dystonia and Genetics. Her Parkinson's disease research incorporates themes from Exome sequencing, Pediatrics and Genetic testing. Her work in Disease addresses issues such as Mutation, which are connected to fields such as Kinase activity.

Her Internal medicine study incorporates themes from Endocrinology, Oncology and Delirium. Christine Klein combines subjects such as Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Gene, X-Linked Dystonia Parkinsonism, Parkinsonism and Movement disorders with her study of Dystonia. The Parkin study combines topics in areas such as Neurodegeneration and Mitochondrion.

Between 2018 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • LRRK2 in Parkinson disease: challenges of clinical trials. (100 citations)
  • Parkinson's disease in the Western Pacific Region (44 citations)
  • A hexanucleotide repeat modifies expressivity of X-linked dystonia parkinsonism. (31 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Mutation

Parkinson's disease, Disease, Dystonia, Internal medicine and Genetics are her primary areas of study. Her works in Parkin and LRRK2 are all subjects of inquiry into Parkinson's disease. Her Parkin research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Parkinsonism and Cognitive decline.

Her studies deal with areas such as Candidate gene, Demography, Pathogenesis and Bioinformatics as well as Disease. Her Dystonia study combines topics in areas such as Mutation, Movement disorders and Deep brain stimulation, Generalized dystonia. The concepts of her Internal medicine study are interwoven with issues in SNP, Endocrinology, Gastroenterology and Oncology.
