Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Mutation
  • Genetics

John B.J. Kwok mainly focuses on Genetics, Genome-wide association study, Dementia, Neuroscience and Frontotemporal dementia. As part of his studies on Genetics, John B.J. Kwok often connects relevant subjects like Tau protein. His Genome-wide association study research includes elements of Genetic correlation, Polymorphism, Medical genetics, Locus and Heritability.

His Dementia research is classified as research in Pathology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Anatomy & histology and Genetic variation. His Frontotemporal dementia research includes themes of Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and Genetic testing.

His most cited work include:

  • Association of missense and 5′-splice-site mutations in tau with the inherited dementia FTDP-17 (2839 citations)
  • Germ-line mutations of the RET proto-oncogene in multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2A (1617 citations)
  • Common genetic variants influence human subcortical brain structures. (610 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Genetics, Frontotemporal dementia, Genome-wide association study, Disease and Dementia. He studied Frontotemporal dementia and Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis that intersect with Missense mutation. His Genome-wide association study research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Medical genetics, Neuroscience, Genetic association and Heritability.

His Neuroscience research incorporates elements of Phenotype and Genetic architecture. He studies Dementia, namely Frontotemporal lobar degeneration. His Frontotemporal lobar degeneration research incorporates themes from Progressive supranuclear palsy and Corticobasal degeneration.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (69.77%)
  • Frontotemporal dementia (40.51%)
  • Genome-wide association study (37.62%)

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

  • Genetics (69.77%)
  • Genome-wide association study (37.62%)
  • Frontotemporal dementia (40.51%)

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

His main research concerns Genetics, Genome-wide association study, Frontotemporal dementia, Disease and Dementia. Genetics and Human leukocyte antigen are two areas of study in which John B.J. Kwok engages in interdisciplinary research. John B.J. Kwok combines subjects such as Mendelian randomization, Genetic variation, Genetic association, Neuroscience and Risk factor with his study of Genome-wide association study.

His research investigates the connection between Neuroscience and topics such as Genetic architecture that intersect with problems in Putamen and Caudate nucleus. John B.J. Kwok has researched Frontotemporal dementia in several fields, including Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Tauopathy, Symptom onset, Pediatrics and Cohort. He has included themes like Leukoencephalopathy and Tau protein in his Dementia study.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Identification of novel risk loci, causal insights, and heritable risk for Parkinson's disease: a meta-analysis of genome-wide association studies (353 citations)
  • The genetic architecture of the human cerebral cortex. (116 citations)
  • The genetic architecture of the human cerebral cortex. (116 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Mutation
  • Genetics

John B.J. Kwok spends much of his time researching Genome-wide association study, Neuroscience, Genetic architecture, Genetics and Genetic association. The study incorporates disciplines such as Meta-analysis, Internal medicine, Cortex and Oncology in addition to Genome-wide association study. His work in the fields of Neuroscience, such as Caudate nucleus and Putamen, overlaps with other areas such as Nucleus accumbens, Synaptic signaling and Globus pallidus.

His Genetic architecture study combines topics in areas such as Cerebral cortex, Central sulcus, Genetic variation, Brain mapping and Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. His Genetics study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Disease and Parkinson's disease. His work in C9orf72 covers topics such as Pediatrics which are related to areas like Frontotemporal dementia.
