Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Cancer
  • Surgery

David J. Hunter focuses on Internal medicine, Genetics, Genome-wide association study, Prospective cohort study and Risk factor. His Internal medicine research incorporates elements of Endocrinology, Surgery and Oncology. His Genome-wide association study research incorporates themes from Case-control study, Genetic association, Bioinformatics and Prostate cancer.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Body mass index, Cohort study, Relative risk, Gynecology and Colorectal cancer. His Risk factor research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Nurses' Health Study and Skin cancer. David J. Hunter focuses mostly in the field of Breast cancer, narrowing it down to topics relating to Epidemiology and, in certain cases, Physical therapy.

His most cited work include:

  • Finding the missing heritability of complex diseases. (6217 citations)
  • Association analyses of 249,796 individuals reveal 18 new loci associated with body mass index (2348 citations)
  • Association analyses of 249,796 individuals reveal 18 new loci associated with body mass index (2348 citations)

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

David J. Hunter mainly focuses on Internal medicine, Osteoarthritis, Physical therapy, Breast cancer and Genetics. David J. Hunter has included themes like Endocrinology and Oncology in his Internal medicine study. His Osteoarthritis research includes elements of Magnetic resonance imaging, Surgery, Radiography and Cartilage.

His Breast cancer study also includes

  • Prospective cohort study, which have a strong connection to Cohort,
  • Relative risk that intertwine with fields like Cohort study. His work on Genetics deals in particular with Genome-wide association study, Locus, Linkage disequilibrium and Gene. The Genome-wide association study study combines topics in areas such as Genetic association and Bioinformatics.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (37.14%)
  • Osteoarthritis (30.23%)
  • Physical therapy (20.70%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Osteoarthritis (30.23%)
  • Physical therapy (20.70%)
  • Internal medicine (37.14%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Osteoarthritis, Physical therapy, Internal medicine, Randomized controlled trial and Genome-wide association study. His study in Osteoarthritis is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Orthopedic surgery, Clinical trial and Radiography. His research integrates issues of Quality of life, Hip osteoarthritis, Physical medicine and rehabilitation and Knee Joint in his study of Physical therapy.

His Internal medicine course of study focuses on Oncology and Breast cancer. His work carried out in the field of Genome-wide association study brings together such families of science as Prostate cancer and Genetic association. Expression quantitative trait loci and Locus are among the areas of Genetics where David J. Hunter concentrates his study.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The Lancet Commission on pollution and health (1211 citations)
  • A large genome-wide association study of age-related macular degeneration highlights contributions of rare and common variants (638 citations)
  • Association analysis identifies 65 new breast cancer risk loci (569 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Cancer
  • Gene

His primary scientific interests are in Osteoarthritis, Internal medicine, Physical therapy, Genome-wide association study and Breast cancer. His Osteoarthritis study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Magnetic resonance imaging, Surgery, Radiography and Cohort. In his study, Prospective cohort study is strongly linked to Cohort study, which falls under the umbrella field of Cohort.

His work on Oncology expands to the thematically related Internal medicine. His studies in Genome-wide association study integrate themes in fields like Genetic association and Locus. His biological study deals with issues like Disease, which deal with fields such as Bioinformatics.
