Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Cancer
  • Disease

His main research concerns Internal medicine, Relative risk, Risk factor, Prospective cohort study and Body mass index. His Internal medicine study typically links adjacent topics like Endocrinology. His research integrates issues of Physical therapy, Gynecology, Disease and Cohort in his study of Relative risk.

His Risk factor research incorporates elements of Surgery, Cohort study, Diabetes mellitus, Lower risk and Breast cancer. Graham A. Colditz studied Prospective cohort study and Myocardial infarction that intersect with Framingham Risk Score. His Body mass index research incorporates themes from Obesity, Demography, Weight change, Weight gain and Pediatrics.

His most cited work include:

  • The Disease Burden Associated with Overweight and Obesity (4224 citations)
  • Clinical guidelines on the identification, evaluation, and treatment of overweight and obesity in adults: Executive summary (2372 citations)
  • Diet, lifestyle, and the risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus in women. (2104 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Internal medicine, Breast cancer, Prospective cohort study, Relative risk and Risk factor. The study incorporates disciplines such as Endocrinology, Surgery and Oncology in addition to Internal medicine. His work in Breast cancer tackles topics such as Gynecology which are related to areas like Obstetrics and Menarche.

His work carried out in the field of Prospective cohort study brings together such families of science as Cohort study, Gastroenterology, Myocardial infarction, Physical therapy and Cohort. His biological study deals with issues like Epidemiology, which deal with fields such as Public health. His research in Risk factor intersects with topics in Nurses' Health Study and Physiology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (52.09%)
  • Breast cancer (30.94%)
  • Prospective cohort study (30.34%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Internal medicine (52.09%)
  • Breast cancer (30.94%)
  • Oncology (20.34%)

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

His primary areas of study are Internal medicine, Breast cancer, Oncology, Cancer and Body mass index. His research related to Confidence interval, Hazard ratio, Prospective cohort study, Multiple myeloma and Cohort might be considered part of Internal medicine. Graham A. Colditz is interested in Relative risk, which is a branch of Confidence interval.

His Breast cancer research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Odds ratio, Gynecology, Epidemiology and Risk factor. The Cancer study combines topics in areas such as Surgery and Incidence. His Body mass index study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Demography and Obesity.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The effectiveness and risks of bariatric surgery: an updated systematic review and meta-analysis, 2003-2012. (924 citations)
  • Prevalence of Overweight and Obesity in the United States, 2007-2012 (173 citations)
  • Priorities for the primary prevention of breast cancer (126 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Cancer
  • Disease

Graham A. Colditz mainly investigates Internal medicine, Breast cancer, Oncology, Cancer and Body mass index. His study in Confidence interval, Prospective cohort study, Cohort, Cohort study and Relative risk falls under the purview of Internal medicine. As part of one scientific family, Graham A. Colditz deals mainly with the area of Relative risk, narrowing it down to issues related to the Meta-analysis, and often MEDLINE.

He focuses mostly in the field of Breast cancer, narrowing it down to topics relating to Gynecology and, in certain cases, Family medicine. His Body mass index study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Demography and Obesity. His studies in Demography integrate themes in fields like Young adult, Gerontology and Risk factor.
