Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

Jan Hillert spends much of his time researching Multiple sclerosis, Genetics, Immunology, Internal medicine and Allele. His Multiple sclerosis study incorporates themes from Odds ratio, Central nervous system disease, Case-control study and Disease, Age of onset. In Immunology, he works on issues like CLEC16A, which are connected to CD226, Lymphocyte differentiation, Cellular immunity and Genetic architecture.

His research in Internal medicine intersects with topics in Endocrinology, Surgery and Pathology. Jan Hillert interconnects Molecular biology, Genome and Genotype in the investigation of issues within Allele. His Human leukocyte antigen research incorporates elements of Interleukin-7 receptor, Genome-wide association study, Linkage disequilibrium and Genetic association.

His most cited work include:

  • Genetic risk and a primary role for cell-mediated immune mechanisms in multiple sclerosis (1970 citations)
  • Analysis of immune-related loci identifies 48 new susceptibility variants for multiple sclerosis (906 citations)
  • Variants conferring risk of atrial fibrillation on chromosome 4q25 (744 citations)

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

Multiple sclerosis, Immunology, Internal medicine, Genetics and Human leukocyte antigen are his primary areas of study. His Multiple sclerosis study also includes

  • Odds ratio and related Logistic regression,
  • Cohort and related Expanded Disability Status Scale. His Peripheral blood mononuclear cell research extends to Immunology, which is thematically connected.

His Internal medicine research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Gastroenterology, Endocrinology and Oncology. His Genetics research focuses on Gene, Haplotype, Allele, Genetic predisposition and Single-nucleotide polymorphism. His studies in Allele integrate themes in fields like Locus, Genetic association and Genotype.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Multiple sclerosis (76.28%)
  • Immunology (27.20%)
  • Internal medicine (27.40%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Multiple sclerosis (76.28%)
  • Internal medicine (27.40%)
  • Cohort study (7.36%)

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

Jan Hillert mainly investigates Multiple sclerosis, Internal medicine, Cohort study, Cohort and Disease. Multiple sclerosis is a subfield of Immunology that Jan Hillert studies. His work carried out in the field of Internal medicine brings together such families of science as Neurology, Oncology and Rituximab.

His biological study deals with issues like Disability pension, which deal with fields such as Pediatrics and Sick leave. His research integrates issues of Randomized controlled trial and Proportional hazards model in his study of Cohort. As a part of the same scientific study, Jan Hillert usually deals with the Disease, concentrating on Virus and frequently concerns with Haplotype, Etiology and Serology.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Infection Risks Among Patients With Multiple Sclerosis Treated With Fingolimod, Natalizumab, Rituximab, and Injectable Therapies. (120 citations)
  • Automatic segmentation of the spinal cord and intramedullary multiple sclerosis lesions with convolutional neural networks. (46 citations)
  • Spatial distribution of multiple sclerosis lesions in the cervical spinal cord. (32 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

His primary areas of study are Multiple sclerosis, Internal medicine, Expanded Disability Status Scale, Cohort study and Neurology. His Multiple sclerosis research is included under the broader classification of Immunology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Endocrinology, Cognition and Oncology in addition to Internal medicine.

His work in Expanded Disability Status Scale tackles topics such as Retrospective cohort study which are related to areas like Cohort, Natural history and Population based cohort. While the research belongs to areas of Odds ratio, Jan Hillert spends his time largely on the problem of Logistic regression, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Genetic predisposition, vitamin D deficiency, Quality of life, Vitamin D and neurology and Physiology. Jan Hillert has researched Epstein–Barr virus in several fields, including Autoimmune disease, Human leukocyte antigen, Etiology and Haplotype.
