Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

Jaakko Kaprio mainly focuses on Genetics, Genome-wide association study, Demography, Internal medicine and Cohort. Jaakko Kaprio works mostly in the field of Genome-wide association study, limiting it down to topics relating to Case-control study and, in certain cases, Disease. His research in Demography intersects with topics in Twin study, Body mass index, Zygosity, Cohort study and Risk factor.

His research integrates issues of Developmental psychology, Lumbar, Concordance and Cancer in his study of Twin study. His Internal medicine study combines topics in areas such as Endocrinology, Oncology and Lipidomics. His Cohort research includes elements of Dizygotic twin, Psychiatry, Pediatrics and Confidence interval.

His most cited work include:

  • Environmental and Heritable Factors in the Causation of Cancer — Analyses of Cohorts of Twins from Sweden, Denmark, and Finland (3206 citations)
  • Environmental and Heritable Factors in the Causation of Cancer — Analyses of Cohorts of Twins from Sweden, Denmark, and Finland (3206 citations)
  • Biological, clinical and population relevance of 95 loci for blood lipids (2804 citations)

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

His main research concerns Demography, Twin study, Internal medicine, Genetics and Cohort. His Demography research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Body mass index, Cohort study, Young adult, Gerontology and Confidence interval. His Twin study study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Developmental psychology, Concordance and Genetic variation.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Endocrinology and Oncology in addition to Internal medicine. His work in Genome-wide association study, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Locus, Gene and Genetic association are all subfields of Genetics research. His Cohort research includes themes of Psychiatry, Pediatrics and Hazard ratio.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Demography (34.26%)
  • Twin study (27.94%)
  • Internal medicine (29.30%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Demography (34.26%)
  • Genetics (22.98%)
  • Twin study (27.94%)

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

Jaakko Kaprio focuses on Demography, Genetics, Twin study, Body mass index and Genome-wide association study. His Demography study which covers Cohort that intersects with Longitudinal study. His Genetics study frequently draws connections between related disciplines such as Nicotine.

His work deals with themes such as Leisure time, Zygosity and Genetic predisposition, which intersect with Twin study. Jaakko Kaprio combines subjects such as Obesity and Physiology with his study of Body mass index. As a member of one scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Genome-wide association study, focusing on Schizophrenia and, on occasion, Bipolar disorder.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Analysis of shared heritability in common disorders of the brain (726 citations)
  • Association studies of up to 1.2 million individuals yield new insights into the genetic etiology of tobacco and alcohol use (385 citations)
  • Genomic Relationships, Novel Loci, and Pleiotropic Mechanisms across Eight Psychiatric Disorders (242 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

Jaakko Kaprio mainly investigates Demography, Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Body mass index and Internal medicine. His studies in Demography integrate themes in fields like Twin study, Cohort study, Young adult, Leisure time and Cohort. His Twin study research incorporates elements of Variance and Pediatrics.

He has researched Genome-wide association study in several fields, including Heritability, Schizophrenia, Genetic association and Genetic architecture. His work in Body mass index tackles topics such as Obesity which are related to areas like Cross-sectional study and Smoking cessation. His Internal medicine study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Endocrinology, Mendelian randomization, Gene expression, Gene expression profiling and Oncology.
