Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Diabetes mellitus
  • Disease

Frank B. Hu mainly focuses on Internal medicine, Diabetes mellitus, Type 2 diabetes, Endocrinology and Risk factor. All of his Internal medicine and Relative risk, Body mass index, Prospective cohort study, Cohort study and Obesity investigations are sub-components of the entire Internal medicine study. His Obesity study combines topics in areas such as Weight gain and Gerontology.

His work carried out in the field of Diabetes mellitus brings together such families of science as Vitamin D and neurology, Physical therapy and Environmental health. His Type 2 diabetes research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Odds ratio, Food science, Glycemic and Case-control study. Frank B. Hu has included themes like Proportional hazards model and Myocardial infarction in his Risk factor study.

His most cited work include:

  • DIETARY PATTERN ANALYSIS: A NEW DIRECTION IN NUTRITIONAL EPIDEMIOLOGY (2520 citations)
  • Association analyses of 249,796 individuals reveal 18 new loci associated with body mass index (2348 citations)
  • Association analyses of 249,796 individuals reveal 18 new loci associated with body mass index (2348 citations)

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

Frank B. Hu focuses on Internal medicine, Type 2 diabetes, Diabetes mellitus, Endocrinology and Prospective cohort study. His study involves Body mass index, Relative risk, Cohort study, Risk factor and Disease, a branch of Internal medicine. His work in Body mass index covers topics such as Obesity which are related to areas like Weight gain.

His studies deal with areas such as Nurses' Health Study, Physiology and Environmental health as well as Type 2 diabetes. His Endocrinology study combines topics in areas such as Odds ratio and Case-control study. His Prospective cohort study research includes elements of Incidence, Lower risk, Proportional hazards model, Hazard ratio and Cohort.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (68.36%)
  • Type 2 diabetes (43.26%)
  • Diabetes mellitus (37.83%)

  • Prospective cohort study (36.27%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Internal medicine, Type 2 diabetes, Prospective cohort study, Diabetes mellitus and Disease. Frank B. Hu has researched Internal medicine in several fields, including Gastroenterology and Endocrinology. Frank B. Hu combines subjects such as Research design, Relative risk, Nurses' Health Study and Cohort study with his study of Type 2 diabetes.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Body mass index, Obesity, Demography, Physiology and Cohort. The Diabetes mellitus study combines topics in areas such as Gestational diabetes and Risk factor. His biological study deals with issues like Environmental health, which deal with fields such as Epidemiology and MEDLINE.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Global aetiology and epidemiology of type 2 diabetes mellitus and its complications. (998 citations)
  • Global aetiology and epidemiology of type 2 diabetes mellitus and its complications. (998 citations)
  • The Science of Obesity Management: An Endocrine Society Scientific Statement. (194 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Gene

Frank B. Hu spends much of his time researching Internal medicine, Type 2 diabetes, Prospective cohort study, Environmental health and Body mass index. His research in Hazard ratio, Incidence, Proportional hazards model, Cohort study and Disease are components of Internal medicine. His Type 2 diabetes study results in a more complete grasp of Diabetes mellitus.

He studied Prospective cohort study and Cohort that intersect with Odds ratio. His research in Environmental health focuses on subjects like Epidemiology, which are connected to Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus. His Body mass index research includes themes of Obesity, Cross-sectional study, Demography, Life expectancy and Ethnic group.
