Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Cancer
  • Disease

Global health, Years of potential life lost, Life expectancy, Gerontology and Mortality rate are his primary areas of study. His Global health research integrates issues from Incidence, Epidemiology, Relative risk, Maternal death and Disease burden. His work in Epidemiology addresses subjects such as Disease, which are connected to disciplines such as Child mortality.

His Years of potential life lost research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Disability-adjusted life year, Cancer and Environmental health. His study connects Epidemiological transition and Life expectancy. In his research, Pediatrics is intimately related to Cause of death, which falls under the overarching field of Mortality rate.

His most cited work include:

  • 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)
  • Global, regional, and national comparative risk assessment of 79 behavioural, environmental and occupational, and metabolic risks or clusters of risks in 188 countries, 1990-2013: A systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2013 (4452 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national comparative risk assessment of 79 behavioural, environmental and occupational, and metabolic risks or clusters of risks in 188 countries, 1990-2013: A systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2013 (4452 citations)

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

Ferrán Catalá-López spends much of his time researching Global health, Years of potential life lost, Life expectancy, Environmental health and Meta-analysis. His studies deal with areas such as Verbal autopsy, Disability-adjusted life year, Disease burden, Mortality rate and Pediatrics as well as Global health. His Mortality rate study incorporates themes from Epidemiology, Young adult, Compensation law of mortality, Breast cancer and Child mortality.

His study focuses on the intersection of Years of potential life lost and fields such as Gerontology with connections in the field of Disease. The study incorporates disciplines such as Epidemiological transition, Public health, Incidence and Cause of death in addition to Life expectancy. His Meta-analysis research also works with subjects such as

  • Systematic review which intersects with area such as Psychological intervention,
  • Observational study together with Comorbidity and Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Global health (32.31%)
  • Years of potential life lost (24.23%)
  • Life expectancy (21.92%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Years of potential life lost (24.23%)
  • Global health (32.31%)
  • Mortality rate (21.92%)

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

Ferrán Catalá-López mostly deals with Years of potential life lost, Global health, Mortality rate, Life expectancy and Incidence. His Years of potential life lost research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Cancer and Environmental health. His Environmental health study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Epidemiology and Risk factor.

His Disease burden research extends to Global health, which is thematically connected. His Mortality rate research incorporates elements of Young adult, Breast cancer, Cohort study and Anorexia nervosa. Ferrán Catalá-López has included themes like Cause of death and Population health in his Life expectancy study.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Global, regional, and national burden of stroke, 1990-2016: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2016 (564 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national burden of Alzheimer's disease and other dementias, 1990-2016: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2016 (484 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national burden of chronic kidney disease, 1990–2017: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2017 (401 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Cancer
  • Disease

Ferrán Catalá-López mainly investigates Global health, Years of potential life lost, Mortality rate, Life expectancy and Incidence. Ferrán Catalá-López performs integrative Global health and Government spending research in his work. His studies in Years of potential life lost integrate themes in fields like Cancer and Environmental health.

Ferrán Catalá-López usually deals with Mortality rate and limits it to topics linked to Disease burden and Development economics, Index and Per capita. His study explores the link between Life expectancy and topics such as Disease that cross with problems in Gerontology and Population health. His Incidence research includes elements of Verbal autopsy, Burden of disease and Epidemiology.
