Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Genetics

Georg Ehret focuses on Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Internal medicine, Genetic association and Blood pressure. His Genome-wide association study research incorporates elements of Polymorphism, Coronary artery disease, Medical genetics, Locus and Genetic architecture. Georg Ehret combines subjects such as Body mass index and Hematocrit with his study of Genetics.

His study in Internal medicine is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Endocrinology and Cardiology. The concepts of his Genetic association study are interwoven with issues in Mean corpuscular hemoglobin, Hemoglobin, Mean corpuscular volume, Quantitative trait locus and Atrial fibrillation. He focuses mostly in the field of Blood pressure, narrowing it down to topics relating to Disease and, in certain cases, Stroke.

His most cited work include:

  • Discovery and refinement of loci associated with lipid levels (1814 citations)
  • Discovery and refinement of loci associated with lipid levels (1814 citations)
  • Genetic variants in novel pathways influence blood pressure and cardiovascular disease risk (1543 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Genetics, Genome-wide association study, Internal medicine, Blood pressure and Genetic association. He interconnects Bioinformatics, Linkage disequilibrium, Medical genetics, Locus and Genetic architecture in the investigation of issues within Genome-wide association study. His research on Internal medicine also deals with topics like

  • Endocrinology which is related to area like Case-control study,
  • Stroke most often made with reference to Cardiology.

His studies in Blood pressure integrate themes in fields like Disease, Risk factor and Genetic variation. His research in Single-nucleotide polymorphism intersects with topics in Polymorphism and Genomics. The various areas that Georg Ehret examines in his Renal function study include Kidney and Kidney disease.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (65.73%)
  • Genome-wide association study (66.94%)
  • Internal medicine (54.44%)

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

  • Internal medicine (54.44%)
  • Genome-wide association study (66.94%)
  • Genetics (65.73%)

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

Georg Ehret mainly investigates Internal medicine, Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Blood pressure and Atrial fibrillation. The Internal medicine study combines topics in areas such as Endocrinology and Cardiology. His studies deal with areas such as Imputation, Human genetics, Genetic association and Medical genetics as well as Genome-wide association study.

His Genetics study incorporates themes from Mean arterial pressure, Familial hypercholesterolemia and Pulse pressure. His Blood pressure study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Phenotype, Magnetic resonance imaging and Mendelian Randomization Analysis. His Atrial fibrillation study also includes fields such as

  • Cardiac conduction which intersects with area such as Disease, Cardiomyopathy, Electrocardiography and Bradycardia,
  • PR interval that connect with fields like Multifactorial Inheritance,
  • Confidence interval, which have a strong connection to Stroke, Cognitive decline, Montreal Cognitive Assessment and Natriuretic peptide.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Target genes, variants, tissues and transcriptional pathways influencing human serum urate levels (66 citations)
  • Relationships of Overt and Silent Brain Lesions With Cognitive Function in Patients With Atrial Fibrillation (56 citations)
  • A catalog of genetic loci associated with kidney function from analyses of a million individuals (52 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Genetics

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Medical genetics, Human genetics and Trait. His work carried out in the field of Genome-wide association study brings together such families of science as Diabetes mellitus genetics, Gene knockdown, Bioinformatics, Albuminuria and Regulation of gene expression. His Genetics research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Gout, Renal function and Insulin resistance.

His Medical genetics study combines topics in areas such as Mean arterial pressure, Pulse pressure, Blood pressure, Diastole and Heart failure. His Human genetics research includes themes of Evolutionary biology, Heritability, Genome, Genomics and Imputation.
