What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Endocrinology

George P. Chrousos mostly deals with Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Glucocorticoid, Corticotropin-releasing hormone and Hormone. His studies link Immune system with Internal medicine. His Endocrinology study often links to related topics such as Receptor.

George P. Chrousos has included themes like Corticosterone, Peptide hormone and Arthritis in his Corticotropin-releasing hormone study. George P. Chrousos has researched Hormone in several fields, including Vasopressin and Norepinephrine. His Hydrocortisone research incorporates elements of Basal and Dexamethasone.

His most cited work include:

  • The Concepts of Stress and Stress System Disorders: Overview of Physical and Behavioral Homeostasis (3148 citations)
  • The Hypothalamic–Pituitary–Adrenal Axis and Immune-Mediated Inflammation (2096 citations)
  • Hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis, neuroendocrine factors and stress. (1901 citations)

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

George P. Chrousos spends much of his time researching Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Hormone, Glucocorticoid and Corticotropin-releasing hormone. Internal medicine is represented through his Hydrocortisone, Hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal axis, Glucocorticoid receptor, Obesity and Cushing syndrome research. His research brings together the fields of Transcription factor and Glucocorticoid receptor.

His Obesity study frequently draws connections between related disciplines such as Body mass index. Many of his studies on Endocrinology apply to Receptor as well. The study of Corticotropin-releasing hormone is intertwined with the study of Peptide hormone in a number of ways.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (67.58%)
  • Endocrinology (61.56%)
  • Hormone (12.53%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Internal medicine (67.58%)
  • Endocrinology (61.56%)
  • Clinical psychology (4.35%)

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

Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Clinical psychology, Obesity and Anxiety are his primary areas of study. His research integrates issues of Diabetes mellitus, Gastroenterology and Cardiology in his study of Internal medicine. George P. Chrousos is involved in the study of Endocrinology that focuses on Glucocorticoid receptor in particular.

His Clinical psychology research incorporates themes from Mental health and Disease. His research in Obesity intersects with topics in Anthropometry and Physiology. His Stress management study incorporates themes from Intervention, Randomized controlled trial, Cognition and Health promotion.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Maternal body mass index, gestational weight gain, and the risk of overweight and obesity across childhood: An individual participant data meta-analysis (92 citations)
  • Impact of maternal body mass index and gestational weight gain on pregnancy complications: an individual participant data meta-analysis of European, North American and Australian cohorts (85 citations)
  • Diabetic nephropathy in type 1 diabetes: a review of early natural history, pathogenesis, and diagnosis. (73 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Cancer

George P. Chrousos spends much of his time researching Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Obesity, Disease and Pregnancy. His Diabetes mellitus research extends to the thematically linked field of Internal medicine. His Endocrinology research includes themes of Young adult and Case-control study.

His research integrates issues of Body mass index and Logistic regression in his study of Obesity. His study on Disease also encompasses disciplines like

  • Clinical psychology together with Intervention, Psychosocial, Depression, Psychiatry and Social support,
  • Neuroscience together with Autonomic nervous system, Homeostasis and Glucocorticoid receptor,
  • Stressor that intertwine with fields like Chronic stress, Psychological resilience and Stress-related disorders. His research investigates the connection between Pregnancy and topics such as Obstetrics that intersect with issues in Gestation.
