Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

Johann Willeit mainly focuses on Internal medicine, Risk factor, Diabetes mellitus, Prospective cohort study and Immunology. Johann Willeit combines subjects such as Endocrinology, Type 2 diabetes and Oncology with his study of Internal medicine. His Risk factor research incorporates themes from Surgery, Gerontology, Kidney disease and Environmental health.

The Environmental health study combines topics in areas such as Young adult, Obesity, Disease and Underweight. His studies deal with areas such as Body mass index, Epidemiology and Case-control study as well as Diabetes mellitus. Johann Willeit interconnects Odds ratio, Vascular disease and Endothelial progenitor cell in the investigation of issues within Immunology.

His most cited work include:

  • Trends in adult body-mass index in 200 countries from 1975 to 2014: A pooled analysis of 1698 population-based measurement studies with 19.2 million participants (2278 citations)
  • Worldwide trends in body-mass index, underweight, overweight, and obesity from 1975 to 2016: a pooled analysis of 2416 population-based measurement studies in 128·9 million children, adolescents, and adults (2180 citations)
  • Worldwide trends in diabetes since 1980: a pooled analysis of 751 population-based studies with 4.4 million participants (1737 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Prospective cohort study, Stroke and Disease. His Internal medicine study incorporates themes from Diabetes mellitus and Cardiology. Obesity, Global health and Gerontology is closely connected to Body mass index in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Diabetes mellitus.

Johann Willeit usually deals with Endocrinology and limits it to topics linked to Risk factor and Relative risk. His research integrates issues of Incidence, Oncology and C-reactive protein in his study of Prospective cohort study. His work in Stroke tackles topics such as Surgery which are related to areas like Cohort.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (53.72%)
  • Endocrinology (19.83%)
  • Prospective cohort study (14.88%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Internal medicine (53.72%)
  • Disease (13.64%)
  • Cohort (9.50%)

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

His main research concerns Internal medicine, Disease, Cohort, Endocrinology and Epidemiology. In his study, Stroke and Blood pressure is strongly linked to Cardiology, which falls under the umbrella field of Internal medicine. The study incorporates disciplines such as Relative risk, Physical therapy and Pediatrics in addition to Disease.

As part of one scientific family, Johann Willeit deals mainly with the area of Cohort, narrowing it down to issues related to the Cohort study, and often Proportional hazards model. His work focuses on many connections between Confidence interval and other disciplines, such as Risk factor, that overlap with his field of interest in Framingham Risk Score, Pooled analysis and Global health. His studies link Body mass index with Diabetes mellitus.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Trends in adult body-mass index in 200 countries from 1975 to 2014: A pooled analysis of 1698 population-based measurement studies with 19.2 million participants (2278 citations)
  • Worldwide trends in body-mass index, underweight, overweight, and obesity from 1975 to 2016: a pooled analysis of 2416 population-based measurement studies in 128·9 million children, adolescents, and adults (2180 citations)
  • Worldwide trends in diabetes since 1980: a pooled analysis of 751 population-based studies with 4.4 million participants (1737 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

Johann Willeit mainly investigates Internal medicine, Body mass index, Prospective cohort study, Epidemiology and Global health. His Internal medicine research integrates issues from Diabetes mellitus, Endocrinology and Type 2 diabetes. In his study, Young adult is inextricably linked to Obesity, which falls within the broad field of Body mass index.

He works mostly in the field of Prospective cohort study, limiting it down to topics relating to Meta-analysis and, in certain cases, Framingham Risk Score, as a part of the same area of interest. His work carried out in the field of Epidemiology brings together such families of science as Vulnerable plaque, Proteomics, Biomarker discovery and Disease. His Global health study combines topics in areas such as Pooled analysis, Gerontology, Environmental health, Blood pressure and Risk factor.
