Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Diabetes mellitus
  • Gene

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Internal medicine, Type 2 diabetes and Endocrinology. The concepts of his Genome-wide association study study are interwoven with issues in Quantitative trait locus, Genetic architecture, Allele and Genetic association. His research on Genetics often connects related topics like Disease.

As part of his studies on Internal medicine, he frequently links adjacent subjects like Diabetes mellitus. His research in Type 2 diabetes intersects with topics in Body mass index, Birth weight, Gerontology, Pediatrics and Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Cardiology and C-reactive protein.

His most cited work include:

  • Prevention of type 2 diabetes mellitus by changes in lifestyle among subjects with impaired glucose tolerance. (8664 citations)
  • Biological insights from 108 schizophrenia-associated genetic loci (4834 citations)
  • Biological insights from 108 schizophrenia-associated genetic loci (4834 citations)

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

His main research concerns Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Body mass index, Diabetes mellitus and Type 2 diabetes. His Body mass index research incorporates elements of Pregnancy, Birth weight, Obesity, Demography and Obstetrics. His research investigates the connection between Birth weight and topics such as Gestational age that intersect with problems in Low birth weight.

His Diabetes mellitus research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Randomized controlled trial, Gestational diabetes and Incidence. His Type 2 diabetes research incorporates themes from Odds ratio and Pediatrics. Johan G. Eriksson works mostly in the field of Pediatrics, limiting it down to topics relating to Cohort study and, in certain cases, Cohort, as a part of the same area of interest.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (32.70%)
  • Endocrinology (23.47%)
  • Body mass index (20.56%)

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

  • Body mass index (20.56%)
  • Demography (16.00%)
  • Cohort (12.27%)

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

Johan G. Eriksson focuses on Body mass index, Demography, Cohort, Obesity and Internal medicine. His research integrates issues of Odds ratio, Pregnancy, Birth weight, Obstetrics and Type 2 diabetes in his study of Body mass index. The Cohort study combines topics in areas such as Logistic regression, Pediatrics and Confounding.

The various areas that Johan G. Eriksson examines in his Obesity study include Weight gain, Lean body mass and Public health. He has included themes like Endocrinology and Cardiology in his Internal medicine study. His Offspring study also includes fields such as

  • Gestational diabetes and related Cohort study, Diabetes mellitus and Incidence,
  • Physiology that intertwine with fields like Genome-wide association study.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Maternal and fetal genetic effects on birth weight and their relevance to cardio-metabolic risk factors (129 citations)
  • Maternal and fetal genetic effects on birth weight and their relevance to cardio-metabolic risk factors (129 citations)
  • Epigenetic upregulation of FKBP5 by aging and stress contributes to NF-kappa B-driven inflammation and cardiovascular risk (57 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Diabetes mellitus

His scientific interests lie mostly in Genome-wide association study, Demography, Obesity, Pregnancy and Genetics. His work carried out in the field of Genome-wide association study brings together such families of science as Genetic correlation, Meta-analysis, Genetic association, Heritability and Genetic architecture. His Demography research integrates issues from Logistic regression, Incidence, Cohort study and Cohort.

His Obesity study falls within the topics of Internal medicine and Endocrinology. Johan G. Eriksson focuses mostly in the field of Internal medicine, narrowing it down to matters related to Cardiology and, in some cases, Premature birth. His research on Genetics frequently links to adjacent areas such as Disease.
