Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Diabetes mellitus

Dariush Mozaffarian mostly deals with Internal medicine, Risk factor, Diabetes mellitus, Gerontology and Environmental health. His work carried out in the field of Internal medicine brings together such families of science as Endocrinology, Surgery and Cardiology. In his research, Omega 3 fatty acid is intimately related to Relative risk, which falls under the overarching field of Risk factor.

His Diabetes mellitus research incorporates themes from Stroke, Prospective cohort study, Disease and Cohort study. His research integrates issues of Obesity, Mortality rate, Life expectancy, Years of potential life lost and Public health in his study of Gerontology. His Environmental health research focuses on Global health and how it connects with Young adult and Diet Surveys.

His most cited work include:

  • 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 incidence, prevalence, and years lived with disability for 301 acute and chronic diseases and injuries in 188 countries, 1990-2013: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2013 (6156 citations)
  • Heart Disease and Stroke Statistics—2017 Update: A Report From the American Heart Association (4776 citations)

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

Dariush Mozaffarian spends much of his time researching Internal medicine, Environmental health, Diabetes mellitus, Endocrinology and Prospective cohort study. Dariush Mozaffarian interconnects Surgery and Cardiology in the investigation of issues within Internal medicine. His Environmental health research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Obesity, Disease, Global health, National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey and Risk factor.

His research in Disease intersects with topics in Epidemiology and Gerontology. Many of his studies on Diabetes mellitus involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Stroke. The various areas that he examines in his Endocrinology study include Polyunsaturated fatty acid and Fatty acid.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (46.70%)
  • Environmental health (23.90%)
  • Diabetes mellitus (19.78%)

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

  • Environmental health (23.90%)
  • Internal medicine (46.70%)
  • Diabetes mellitus (19.78%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Environmental health, Internal medicine, Diabetes mellitus, Type 2 diabetes and Disease. His Environmental health study incorporates themes from Cancer, Obesity, Quality-adjusted life year, National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey and Risk factor. His Internal medicine study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Eicosapentaenoic acid, Endocrinology and Cardiology.

His Endocrinology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Cardiovascular health and Heart failure. His research investigates the link between Diabetes mellitus and topics such as Cohort study that cross with problems in Relative risk and Hazard ratio. The concepts of his Disease study are interwoven with issues in Epidemiology, Incidence, Kidney disease, Stroke and Public health.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Health effects of dietary risks in 195 countries, 1990–2017: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2017 (904 citations)
  • The obesity transition: stages of the global epidemic (154 citations)
  • Biomarkers of Dietary Omega-6 Fatty Acids and Incident Cardiovascular Disease and Mortality: An Individual-Level Pooled Analysis of 30 Cohort Studies (70 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Diabetes mellitus

His primary areas of study are Environmental health, Diabetes mellitus, Internal medicine, Type 2 diabetes and Obesity. His studies deal with areas such as Quality-adjusted life year, Health economics, Disease, Global health and Risk factor as well as Environmental health. His research investigates the connection between Disease and topics such as Kidney disease that intersect with issues in Coronary artery disease, Mortality rate, Stroke and Population health.

His study in Diabetes mellitus is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Randomized controlled trial and Mendelian Randomization Analysis. He combines subjects such as Endocrinology and Linoleic acid with his study of Internal medicine. In his study, Epidemiology and Metabolic syndrome is strongly linked to Cohort study, which falls under the umbrella field of Hazard ratio.
