Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Genetics

Edwin K. Silverman mainly investigates COPD, Internal medicine, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Immunology and Asthma. His COPD study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Genome-wide association study, Exacerbation, Physical therapy, Spirometry and Cohort. His Internal medicine study incorporates themes from Gastroenterology, Cardiology and Pathology.

His study on Single-nucleotide polymorphism is covered under Genetics. His work deals with themes such as Case-control study, Polymorphism, Genotype and Candidate gene, which intersect with Immunology. His Asthma research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Odds ratio, Pharmacogenetics, Young adult and ADAM33.

His most cited work include:

  • Characterisation of COPD heterogeneity in the ECLIPSE cohort (793 citations)
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease phenotypes: the future of COPD. (752 citations)
  • Genetic Epidemiology of COPD (COPDGene) Study Design (741 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include COPD, Internal medicine, Genetics, Genome-wide association study and Genetic association. His COPD research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Pulmonary disease, Immunology, Physical therapy, Spirometry and Cohort. Lung is closely connected to Pathology in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Internal medicine.

The Genome-wide association study study combines topics in areas such as Expression quantitative trait loci and Genetic epidemiology. His study looks at the relationship between Genetic association and fields such as Bioinformatics, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. His studies deal with areas such as Case-control study and Haplotype as well as Single-nucleotide polymorphism.

He most often published in these fields:

  • COPD (50.51%)
  • Internal medicine (39.49%)
  • Genetics (24.30%)

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

  • COPD (50.51%)
  • Internal medicine (39.49%)
  • Genome-wide association study (19.62%)

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

COPD, Internal medicine, Genome-wide association study, Genetics and Gene are his primary areas of study. The study incorporates disciplines such as Pulmonary disease, Disease, Genetic epidemiology, Lung and Cohort in addition to COPD. His study in Pulmonary disease is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Lung function and Bioinformatics.

His work on Internal medicine is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Cardiology. As a part of the same scientific study, Edwin K. Silverman usually deals with the Genome-wide association study, concentrating on Genetic association and frequently concerns with Computational biology. His Phenotype study frequently involves adjacent topics like Immunology.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Sequencing of 53,831 diverse genomes from the NHLBI TOPMed Program (143 citations)
  • New genetic signals for lung function highlight pathways and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease associations across multiple ancestries (105 citations)
  • Genetic landscape of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease identifies heterogeneous cell-type and phenotype associations (91 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Genetics

Edwin K. Silverman mostly deals with COPD, Internal medicine, Genome-wide association study, Genetic association and Genetics. His COPD research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Pulmonary disease, Disease, Genetic epidemiology, Chronic bronchitis and Cohort. His Internal medicine study frequently draws connections to other fields, such as Cardiology.

His research integrates issues of Imputation, Linkage disequilibrium, Asthma and 1000 Genomes Project in his study of Genome-wide association study. His Genetic association study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Exome sequencing, Severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, Computational biology, Human genetics and Mendelian inheritance. His research in the fields of Allele and Candidate gene overlaps with other disciplines such as Haemophilus influenzae.
