Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Alzheimer's disease

Her main research concerns Alzheimer's disease, Dementia, Internal medicine, Disease and Pathology. The Alzheimer's disease study combines topics in areas such as Genetics, Genome-wide association study, Central nervous system disease, Degenerative disease and Apolipoprotein E. Her Dementia research includes elements of Cohort study, Gerontology and Risk factor.

Hilkka Soininen has researched Internal medicine in several fields, including Placebo, Endocrinology, Oncology and Cardiology. She studied Disease and Clinical trial that intersect with Biomarker and Neuroimaging. Her Pathology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Magnetic resonance imaging and Neurology.

Her most cited work include:

  • Meta-analysis of 74,046 individuals identifies 11 new susceptibility loci for Alzheimer's disease (2822 citations)
  • Common variants at ABCA7, MS4A6A/MS4A4E, EPHA1, CD33 and CD2AP are associated with Alzheimer's disease (1449 citations)
  • Gene-wide analysis detects two new susceptibility genes for Alzheimer's disease. (1340 citations)

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

Her primary scientific interests are in Dementia, Internal medicine, Disease, Alzheimer's disease and Pathology. Her Dementia research integrates issues from Neurology, Cognition, Cognitive impairment and Gerontology. The various areas that she examines in her Internal medicine study include Endocrinology, Oncology and Cardiology.

Her research in Disease intersects with topics in Biomarker, Genetics, Bioinformatics, Psychiatry and Neuroscience. The Alzheimer's disease study which covers Atrophy that intersects with Temporal lobe. Within one scientific family, Hilkka Soininen focuses on topics pertaining to Magnetic resonance imaging under Pathology, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Neuroimaging.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Dementia (33.69%)
  • Internal medicine (30.52%)
  • Disease (29.81%)

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

  • Dementia (33.69%)
  • Internal medicine (30.52%)
  • Disease (29.81%)

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

Her primary areas of study are Dementia, Internal medicine, Disease, Cognition and Cognitive decline. Hilkka Soininen combines subjects such as Gerontology, Cognitive impairment, Intervention, Randomized controlled trial and Neurology with her study of Dementia. Her studies deal with areas such as Endocrinology and Oncology as well as Internal medicine.

She works mostly in the field of Disease, limiting it down to topics relating to Cerebrospinal fluid and, in certain cases, Normal pressure hydrocephalus, as a part of the same area of interest. In Cognition, Hilkka Soininen works on issues like Clinical psychology, which are connected to Neuropsychology. She has included themes like Frontotemporal dementia, Visual analogue scale, Dementia with Lewy bodies, Vascular dementia and Atrophy in her Cognitive decline study.

Between 2017 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Multidomain lifestyle intervention benefits a large elderly population at risk for cognitive decline and dementia regardless of baseline characteristics: The FINGER trial (119 citations)
  • Whole exome sequencing study identifies novel rare and common Alzheimer's-Associated variants involved in immune response and transcriptional regulation (111 citations)
  • Subjective cognitive decline and rates of incident Alzheimer's disease and non–Alzheimer's disease dementia (94 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

Hilkka Soininen mainly investigates Dementia, Internal medicine, Cognition, Neurology and Cognitive decline. To a larger extent, Hilkka Soininen studies Disease with the aim of understanding Dementia. Her Internal medicine research includes themes of Endocrinology, Oncology and Cognitive test.

Her Cognition study incorporates themes from Randomized controlled trial, Geriatric psychiatry and Confidence interval. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Insomnia, Cohort, Sleep in non-human animals, Neuropathology and Confounding. In her study, Alzheimer's disease is strongly linked to Episodic memory, which falls under the umbrella field of Cognitive skill.
