Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

His main research concerns Demography, Body mass index, Genome-wide association study, Genetics and Blood pressure. Dongfeng Gu interconnects Epidemiology, Gerontology, Cross-sectional study, Vascular disease and Risk factor in the investigation of issues within Demography. His Gerontology research includes themes of Global health and Underweight.

His work is dedicated to discovering how Body mass index, Obesity are connected with Odds ratio and other disciplines. He has included themes like Hemodynamics, Cardiology, Surgery and Disease in his Blood pressure study. Within one scientific family, Dongfeng Gu focuses on topics pertaining to Internal medicine under Surgery, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Diabetes mellitus and Physiology.

His most cited work include:

  • Trends in adult body-mass index in 200 countries from 1975 to 2014: A pooled analysis of 1698 population-based measurement studies with 19.2 million participants (2278 citations)
  • Worldwide trends in body-mass index, underweight, overweight, and obesity from 1975 to 2016: a pooled analysis of 2416 population-based measurement studies in 128·9 million children, adolescents, and adults (2180 citations)
  • Worldwide trends in diabetes since 1980: a pooled analysis of 751 population-based studies with 4.4 million participants (1737 citations)

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

Dongfeng Gu spends much of his time researching Internal medicine, Blood pressure, Endocrinology, Confidence interval and Genetics. His Internal medicine study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Cardiology. Dongfeng Gu has researched Blood pressure in several fields, including Surgery and Genetic epidemiology.

His research integrates issues of Odds ratio, Demography, Disease and Meta-analysis in his study of Confidence interval. His studies deal with areas such as Overweight, Obesity, Epidemiology, Gerontology and Diabetes mellitus as well as Demography. His research in Cohort study intersects with topics in Prospective cohort study and Environmental health.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (51.32%)
  • Blood pressure (36.36%)
  • Endocrinology (23.75%)

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

  • Hazard ratio (15.54%)
  • Confidence interval (22.58%)
  • Demography (19.35%)

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

Dongfeng Gu focuses on Hazard ratio, Confidence interval, Demography, Cohort study and Internal medicine. His study in Hazard ratio is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Lower risk, Prospective cohort study, Proportional hazards model and Cohort. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Stroke, Incidence, Disease and Environmental health.

The various areas that he examines in his Demography study include Body mass index, Epidemiology, Disease burden and Pooled analysis. His Body mass index study incorporates themes from Anthropometry, Obesity and Malnutrition. His Internal medicine study combines topics in areas such as Endocrinology and Cardiology.

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)
  • A Large-Scale Multi-ancestry Genome-wide Study Accounting for Smoking Behavior Identifies Multiple Significant Loci for Blood Pressure (58 citations)
  • Identification of circular RNA Hsa_circ_0001879 and Hsa_circ_0004104 as novel biomarkers for coronary artery disease. (40 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

His primary areas of study are Hazard ratio, Demography, Genome-wide association study, Confidence interval and Cohort study. In his study, Relative risk is strongly linked to Prospective cohort study, which falls under the umbrella field of Hazard ratio. His work deals with themes such as Body mass index and Prevalence, Epidemiology, which intersect with Demography.

His Genome-wide association study study improves the overall literature in Genetics. Dongfeng Gu works mostly in the field of Confidence interval, limiting it down to topics relating to Incidence and, in certain cases, Stroke, as a part of the same area of interest. His Cohort study research incorporates themes from Proportional hazards model, Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease and Increased risk.
