2019 - Fellow of the Royal Society, United Kingdom

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Cancer
  • Genetics

His scientific interests lie mostly in Genetics, Genome-wide association study, Cancer, Internal medicine and Colorectal cancer. His study connects Cancer research and Genetics. Ian Tomlinson interconnects Breast cancer, Case-control study, Genetic association and Genetic variation in the investigation of issues within Genome-wide association study.

His study looks at the relationship between Cancer and fields such as Pathology, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. His study in Internal medicine is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Gastroenterology, Endocrinology and Oncology. The Colorectal cancer study combines topics in areas such as Rectum, Metastasis and Microsatellite instability.

His most cited work include:

  • A serine/threonine kinase gene defective in Peutz–Jeghers syndrome (1347 citations)
  • Germline mutations in FH predispose to dominantly inherited uterine fibroids, skin leiomyomata and papillary renal cell cancer. (1185 citations)
  • Large-scale genotyping identifies 41 new loci associated with breast cancer risk (834 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Genetics, Internal medicine, Colorectal cancer, Oncology and Genome-wide association study. Cancer, Germline mutation, Locus, Mutation and Genotype are among the areas of Genetics where the researcher is concentrating his efforts. His Internal medicine research includes themes of Gastroenterology and Pathology.

His Colorectal cancer research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Cancer research, Carcinoma, Microsatellite instability and Bioinformatics. His Oncology research includes elements of Ovarian cancer, Proportional hazards model, Risk factor and Hazard ratio. His research in Genome-wide association study intersects with topics in Allele, Case-control study, Genetic association and Genetic predisposition.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (43.66%)
  • Internal medicine (37.18%)
  • Colorectal cancer (32.82%)

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

  • Internal medicine (37.18%)
  • Oncology (29.01%)
  • Colorectal cancer (32.82%)

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

Ian Tomlinson mostly deals with Internal medicine, Oncology, Colorectal cancer, Cancer and Breast cancer. While the research belongs to areas of Internal medicine, Ian Tomlinson spends his time largely on the problem of Single-nucleotide polymorphism, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Genetic variation. His Oncology research includes themes of Genome-wide association study, Microsatellite instability, Proportional hazards model, Hazard ratio and Endometrial cancer.

His studies in Cancer integrate themes in fields like Computational biology and Gene, Germline. His Gene study is related to the wider topic of Genetics. Particularly relevant to Mutation is his body of work in Genetics.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Polygenic Risk Scores for Prediction of Breast Cancer and Breast Cancer Subtypes (257 citations)
  • Polygenic Risk Scores for Prediction of Breast Cancer and Breast Cancer Subtypes (257 citations)
  • Detecting repeated cancer evolution from multi-region tumor sequencing data (66 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Cancer
  • Mutation

His main research concerns Colorectal cancer, Internal medicine, Oncology, Genome-wide association study and Cancer. The study incorporates disciplines such as Carcinoma, Computational biology and Case-control study in addition to Colorectal cancer. His Oncology study combines topics in areas such as Odds ratio, Microsatellite instability, Hazard ratio, Biomarker and Prospective cohort study.

His research on Genetics and Single-nucleotide polymorphism is centered around Genome-wide association study. His study in Single-nucleotide polymorphism is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Germline mutation, Epidemiology of cancer and Proportional hazards model. His Cancer research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Mutation, Cancer research, Anticipation and Genetic predisposition.
