Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Cancer
  • Obesity

Elisabet Wirfält spends much of her time researching European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition, Prospective cohort study, Cohort study, Internal medicine and Mediterranean diet. The European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition study combines topics in areas such as Breast cancer, Environmental health, Cancer prevention and Risk factor. Her work carried out in the field of Prospective cohort study brings together such families of science as Relative risk, Gerontology, Weight management and Weight change.

Her work on Diet and cancer as part of general Cohort study study is frequently connected to Demography, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. Her work on Endocrinology expands to the thematically related Internal medicine. Elisabet Wirfält has researched Mediterranean diet in several fields, including Confounding and Hazard ratio.

Her most cited work include:

  • Modified Mediterranean diet and survival: EPIC-elderly prospective cohort study (578 citations)
  • Body size and breast cancer risk: findings from the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC). (483 citations)
  • Mediterranean dietary pattern and prediction of all-cause mortality in a US population: results from the NIH-AARP Diet and Health Study. (426 citations)

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

Elisabet Wirfält mainly investigates Internal medicine, Prospective cohort study, Diet and cancer, European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition and Cohort. Her Internal medicine study combines topics in areas such as Endocrinology and Oncology. Her research in Prospective cohort study intersects with topics in Epidemiology, Incidence, Cohort study and Hazard ratio.

Her work in Diet and cancer addresses issues such as Blood sampling, which are connected to fields such as Immunology. Her European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Food science, Food group, Environmental health, Weight change and Risk factor. In her work, Public health is strongly intertwined with Gerontology, which is a subfield of Cohort.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (46.47%)
  • Prospective cohort study (38.82%)
  • Diet and cancer (36.47%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2012-2019)?

  • Internal medicine (46.47%)
  • European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (35.88%)
  • Cohort (33.53%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Internal medicine, European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition, Cohort, Prospective cohort study and Diet and cancer. Her work on Cancer as part of general Internal medicine study is frequently linked to Weight gain, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. Her European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition study is concerned with the larger field of Cohort study.

Her studies in Cohort integrate themes in fields like Epidemiology and Gerontology. The Prospective cohort study study combines topics in areas such as Vitamin D and neurology and Hazard ratio, Confidence interval. Her Diet and cancer study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Body mass index, Odds ratio, Immunology, Type 2 diabetes and Confounding.

Between 2012 and 2019, her most popular works were:

  • Physical activity and all-cause mortality across levels of overall and abdominal adiposity in European men and women: the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition Study (EPIC) (219 citations)
  • Strengthening the Reporting of Observational Studies in Epidemiology – nutritional epidemiology (STROBE-nut): An extension of the STROBE statement† (141 citations)
  • Adherence to the mediterranean diet and risk of breast cancer in the European prospective investigation into cancer and nutrition cohort study (139 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Cancer
  • Pathology

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Prospective cohort study, Cohort study, European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition, Diet and cancer and Internal medicine. Her Prospective cohort study research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Cross-sectional study, Endocrinology and Rheumatoid arthritis. Her research on Cohort study frequently links to adjacent areas such as Cohort.

Her study focuses on the intersection of Cohort and fields such as Gerontology with connections in the field of Obesity. Elisabet Wirfält has included themes like Abdominal obesity, Waist, Cancer prevention, Attributable risk and Breast cancer in her European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition study. Her Diet and cancer study incorporates themes from Body mass index, Diabetes mellitus, Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus, Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Animal science.
