Jarmo Virtamo spends much of his time researching Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Cancer, Cancer prevention and Genetics. His research on Internal medicine often connects related topics like Gastroenterology. His Endocrinology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Physiology and Vitamin E.
His work focuses on many connections between Cancer and other disciplines, such as Oncology, that overlap with his field of interest in Lung cancer susceptibility. His Cancer prevention research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Odds ratio, Lung cancer, Exocrine pancreatic cancer and Cancer registry. As a member of one scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Genetics, focusing on Body mass index and, on occasion, Obesity, C-reactive protein and Coronary artery disease.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Cancer prevention, Cancer and Risk factor. His work deals with themes such as Gastroenterology and Oncology, which intersect with Internal medicine. In his study, Vitamin is inextricably linked to Vitamin E, which falls within the broad field of Endocrinology.
In Cancer prevention, Jarmo Virtamo works on issues like Odds ratio, which are connected to Immunology and Quartile. His Cancer study combines topics in areas such as Genome-wide association study and Gynecology. In his work, Epidemiology is strongly intertwined with Cohort study, which is a subfield of Risk factor.
His main research concerns Internal medicine, Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Cancer and Single-nucleotide polymorphism. The Internal medicine study combines topics in areas such as Endocrinology and Oncology. His studies deal with areas such as SNP, Genetic association, Bioinformatics and Genetic predisposition as well as Genome-wide association study.
His work in Genetics addresses subjects such as Follicular lymphoma, which are connected to disciplines such as Human leukocyte antigen and Chronic lymphocytic leukemia. The various areas that Jarmo Virtamo examines in his Cancer study include Gastroenterology, Lung cancer, Telomere and Heritability. His research in Single-nucleotide polymorphism intersects with topics in Bladder cancer, Genotyping, Locus and Genetic architecture.
Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Internal medicine, Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Case-control study are his primary areas of study. His study in Genome-wide association study is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Allele, Genetic association, Bioinformatics and Genetic predisposition. Jarmo Virtamo has included themes like Diabetes mellitus, Endocrinology and Oncology in his Internal medicine study.
His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Bladder cancer, Absolute risk reduction, Surgery, Genotyping and Disease. Jarmo Virtamo combines subjects such as Meta-analysis and Cancer, Colorectal cancer, Prostate cancer with his study of Genotype. The concepts of his Prostate cancer study are interwoven with issues in Relative risk, Overweight, Gynecology, Lung cancer and Cancer prevention.
