Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Disease
  • Internal medicine
  • Statistics

Christopher J L Murray mainly focuses on Global health, Demography, Environmental health, Gerontology and Years of potential life lost. The Global health study combines topics in areas such as Disease, Cause of death, Stroke and Developing country, Child mortality. Christopher J L Murray has researched Demography in several fields, including Life expectancy, Verbal autopsy, Epidemiology and Incidence.

His Environmental health research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Public health, Population health, Disease burden, Risk assessment and Risk factor. His Gerontology research includes themes of Disability-adjusted life year, Burden of disease, Quality-adjusted life year and Body mass index. His study in Years of potential life lost is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Liver cancer, Cancer, Psychiatry and Communicable disease.

His most cited work include:

  • Global and regional mortality from 235 causes of death for 20 age groups in 1990 and 2010: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2010 (8830 citations)
  • 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 prevalence of overweight and obesity in children and adults during 1980–2013: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2013 (6893 citations)

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

Environmental health, Global health, Demography, Mortality rate and Gerontology are his primary areas of study. His Environmental health research incorporates themes from Burden of disease, Disease, Disease burden, Public health and Risk factor. His Global health research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Developing country, Quality-adjusted life year and Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome.

His Demography research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Epidemiology, Incidence, Cause of death, Life expectancy and Child mortality. His Life expectancy research is mostly focused on the topic Years of potential life lost. Christopher J L Murray connects Gerontology with Injury prevention in his research.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental health (32.24%)
  • Global health (30.21%)
  • Demography (28.07%)

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

  • Environmental health (32.24%)
  • Global health (30.21%)
  • Demography (28.07%)

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

Christopher J L Murray focuses on Environmental health, Global health, Demography, Mortality rate and Incidence. His work deals with themes such as Malnutrition, Disease burden, Public health and Risk factor, which intersect with Environmental health. His Global health research integrates issues from Developing country, Government and Health policy.

The concepts of his Demography study are interwoven with issues in Psychological intervention, Verbal autopsy, Years of potential life lost and Burden of disease. Christopher J L Murray has included themes like Cancer registry, Epidemiology and Disease, Cause of death in his Years of potential life lost study. The various areas that Christopher J L Murray examines in his Incidence study include Quality-adjusted life year, Malaria, Pediatrics and Migraine.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Food in the Anthropocene: the EAT–Lancet Commission on healthy diets from sustainable food systems (1551 citations)
  • Health effects of dietary risks in 195 countries, 1990–2017: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2017 (904 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national burden of stroke, 1990-2016: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2016 (564 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Statistics

Christopher J L Murray mostly deals with Demography, Years of potential life lost, Environmental health, Global health and Mortality rate. His studies deal with areas such as Inpatient care, Social distance, Coronavirus disease 2019 and Nursing care as well as Demography. His Years of potential life lost study incorporates themes from Cancer, Epidemiology and Disease burden, Disease, Cause of death.

His Environmental health research incorporates elements of Quality-adjusted life year, Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, Public health and Risk factor. In his research, Burden of disease, Malaria, Health policy and Verbal autopsy is intimately related to Incidence, which falls under the overarching field of Global health. His research integrates issues of Fertility and Pandemic in his study of Mortality rate.
