Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Cancer
  • Disease

His main research concerns Asthma, Environmental health, Odds ratio, Pediatrics and Risk factor. His Asthma study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Disease, Cohort study and Allergy. His Cohort study research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Pregnancy, Respiratory disease, Cohort and Atopic dermatitis.

His Environmental health research incorporates elements of Air pollution, Ecology, Lung cancer and Myocardial infarction. Göran Pershagen combines subjects such as Confidence interval, Population study and Breast feeding with his study of Odds ratio. His Risk factor research includes themes of Relative risk and Epidemiology.

His most cited work include:

  • Radon in homes and risk of lung cancer: collaborative analysis of individual data from 13 European case-control studies (1091 citations)
  • Air pollution and lung cancer incidence in 17 European cohorts : Prospective analyses from the European Study of Cohorts for Air Pollution Effects (ESCAPE) (830 citations)
  • Effects of long-term exposure to air pollution on natural-cause mortality : An analysis of 22 European cohorts within the multicentre ESCAPE project (743 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Environmental health, Asthma, Air pollution, Immunology and Pediatrics. His Environmental health research includes elements of Lung cancer, Epidemiology, Cohort study and Noise. Göran Pershagen interconnects Odds ratio, Methylation, Disease and Allergy in the investigation of issues within Asthma.

The various areas that Göran Pershagen examines in his Odds ratio study include Logistic regression and Confidence interval. His Immunology study incorporates themes from Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Genome-wide association study and DNA methylation. The Pediatrics study combines topics in areas such as Pregnancy and Prospective cohort study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental health (38.59%)
  • Asthma (30.43%)
  • Air pollution (23.73%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Cohort (14.49%)
  • Pregnancy (16.30%)
  • Asthma (30.43%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Cohort, Pregnancy, Asthma, Environmental health and Immunology. His Cohort research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Body mass index, Epidemiology, Cohort study, Young adult and Immunoglobulin E. His Asthma research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Birth cohort, Immune system and DNA methylation.

His research in Environmental health is mostly concerned with Environmental exposure. His studies deal with areas such as Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Genome-wide association study and Genetic association as well as Immunology. His Incidence course of study focuses on Air pollution and Lung cancer.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Multiancestry association study identifies new asthma risk loci that colocalize with immune-cell enhancer marks (203 citations)
  • Multiancestry association study identifies new asthma risk loci that colocalize with immune-cell enhancer marks (203 citations)
  • WHO Environmental Noise Guidelines for the European Region: A Systematic Review on Environmental Noise and Cardiovascular and Metabolic Effects: A Summary. (165 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Cancer
  • Disease

His primary scientific interests are in Pregnancy, Immunology, Asthma, Allergy and Environmental health. The concepts of his Pregnancy study are interwoven with issues in Meta-analysis, Pediatrics and Obstetrics. His research integrates issues of Odds ratio, Odds, Confidence interval, Child development and Prospective cohort study in his study of Meta-analysis.

He has researched Immunology in several fields, including Genome-wide association study, Genetic association and Single-nucleotide polymorphism. His work carried out in the field of Asthma brings together such families of science as Tobacco smoke exposure, Maternal smoking, Methylation, DNA methylation and Epigenetics. His Environmental health study combines topics in areas such as Particulate air pollution and Pooled analysis.
