Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Bacteria
  • Enzyme

His main research concerns Gut flora, Microbiome, Obesity, Physiology and Microbiology. His research integrates issues of Host, Disease and Type 2 diabetes in his study of Gut flora. His Host study incorporates themes from Immune system and Immunity.

The concepts of his Microbiome study are interwoven with issues in Evolutionary biology, Ecology, Feces and Metagenomics. Fredrik Bäckhed has included themes like Microbial ecology and Firmicutes in his Obesity study. His Biochemistry study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Internal medicine and Endocrinology.

His most cited work include:

  • Obesity Alters Gut Microbial Ecology (4025 citations)
  • The gut microbiota as an environmental factor that regulates fat storage (3958 citations)
  • Host-Bacterial Mutualism in the Human Intestine (3386 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Gut flora, Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Microbiome and Immunology. His work deals with themes such as Diabetes mellitus, Obesity, Physiology and Microbiology, which intersect with Gut flora. Fredrik Bäckhed focuses mostly in the field of Obesity, narrowing it down to matters related to Disease and, in some cases, Hormone.

As a part of the same scientific family, Fredrik Bäckhed mostly works in the field of Physiology, focusing on Host and, on occasion, Immunity. While the research belongs to areas of Internal medicine, Fredrik Bäckhed spends his time largely on the problem of Type 2 diabetes, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Gastrointestinal Microbiome and Metformin. Fredrik Bäckhed combines subjects such as Body mass index, Feces and Metagenomics with his study of Microbiome.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Gut flora (103.74%)
  • Internal medicine (65.52%)
  • Endocrinology (57.47%)

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

  • Gut flora (103.74%)
  • Internal medicine (65.52%)
  • Physiology (22.99%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Gut flora, Internal medicine, Physiology, Endocrinology and Diabetes mellitus. His work on Human gut as part of general Gut flora study is frequently linked to Spectrum analysis, bridging the gap between disciplines. His studies in Physiology integrate themes in fields like Feces, Obesity, Ruminococcaceae and Helius.

His Obesity research incorporates themes from Akkermansia and Etiology. His research in Endocrinology focuses on subjects like Downregulation and upregulation, which are connected to Transcriptome, Colitis and Acute colitis. His Diabetes mellitus study combines topics in areas such as Microbial ecology and Pharmacology.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Donor metabolic characteristics drive effects of faecal microbiota transplantation on recipient insulin sensitivity, energy expenditure and intestinal transit time (54 citations)
  • Statin therapy is associated with lower prevalence of gut microbiota dysbiosis (49 citations)
  • Statin therapy is associated with lower prevalence of gut microbiota dysbiosis (49 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Bacteria
  • Enzyme

Fredrik Bäckhed mostly deals with Gut flora, Microbiome, Physiology, Diabetes mellitus and Insulin resistance. In his work, Fredrik Bäckhed performs multidisciplinary research in Gut flora and Spectrum analysis. His Microbiome study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Body mass index, Overweight and Cohort.

The various areas that Fredrik Bäckhed examines in his Physiology study include Roseburia, Blood pressure, Ruminococcaceae and Helius. His Diabetes mellitus research integrates issues from Carbohydrate metabolism and Feces. He has researched Insulin resistance in several fields, including Prediabetes and Type 2 diabetes.
