Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Statistics
  • Disease

His primary scientific interests are in Global health, Gerontology, Years of potential life lost, Epidemiology and Life expectancy. His Global health research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Body mass index, Mortality rate, Incidence and Cause of death. His Gerontology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Blood pressure and Disease burden.

His studies in Disease burden integrate themes in fields like Population ageing, Relative risk and Risk factor. His Years of potential life lost research incorporates elements of Disability-adjusted life year, Communicable disease, Population health and Environmental health. His Epidemiology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Population mean, Health examination and Psychological intervention.

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 prevalence of overweight and obesity in children and adults during 1980–2013: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2013 (6893 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)

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

Farshad Farzadfar mainly focuses on Environmental health, Global health, Mortality rate, Years of potential life lost and Epidemiology. His study on Environmental health also encompasses disciplines like

  • Public health which connect with Socioeconomic status,
  • Disease and Relative risk most often made with reference to Risk factor. Farshad Farzadfar has researched Global health in several fields, including Young adult, Gerontology, Life expectancy, Pediatrics and Disease burden.

His studies examine the connections between Gerontology and genetics, as well as such issues in Body mass index, with regards to Diabetes mellitus. His Mortality rate research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Developing country, Child mortality, Cause of death and Incidence. Farshad Farzadfar interconnects Disability-adjusted life year, Burden of disease, Verbal autopsy and Population health in the investigation of issues within Years of potential life lost.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental health (31.44%)
  • Global health (22.74%)
  • Mortality rate (20.07%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Environmental health (31.44%)
  • Mortality rate (20.07%)
  • Years of potential life lost (20.40%)

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

Farshad Farzadfar focuses on Environmental health, Mortality rate, Years of potential life lost, Public health and Disease. His Environmental health research incorporates themes from Developing country, Population ageing and Risk factor. He works mostly in the field of Risk factor, limiting it down to topics relating to Malnutrition and, in certain cases, Body mass index, as a part of the same area of interest.

His research integrates issues of Life expectancy, Cancer, Incidence and Population health in his study of Mortality rate. His Years of potential life lost research integrates issues from Attributable risk, Burden of disease and Cause of death. His Disease research includes themes of Global health and Cholesterol.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Global burden of 369 diseases and injuries in 204 countries and territories, 1990–2019: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2019 (224 citations)
  • Global burden of 369 diseases and injuries in 204 countries and territories, 1990–2019: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2019 (224 citations)
  • Global burden of 369 diseases and injuries in 204 countries and territories, 1990–2019: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2019 (224 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Statistics

His scientific interests lie mostly in Years of potential life lost, Global health, Public health, Disease and Environmental health. His Years of potential life lost research incorporates elements of Hepatitis B, Mortality rate, Cause of death and Population health. In his study, Demographic transition is strongly linked to Life expectancy, which falls under the umbrella field of Mortality rate.

Farshad Farzadfar interconnects Developing country and Psychological intervention in the investigation of issues within Global health. His work in Environmental health covers topics such as Risk factor which are related to areas like Cohort study, Relative risk, Malnutrition and Prevalence. The study incorporates disciplines such as Population growth and Epidemiology in addition to Disease burden.
