Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

His primary areas of investigation include Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Cognition, Gerontology and Dementia. His Genome-wide association study study combines topics in areas such as Internal medicine, Genetic association, Bioinformatics and Medical genetics. His Cognition study incorporates themes from Developmental psychology, Audiology and Cognitive decline.

His research integrates issues of Preferred walking speed, Epidemiology, Cohort study and Grip strength in his study of Gerontology. The concepts of his Dementia study are interwoven with issues in Alzheimer's disease, Psychiatry, Risk factor and Ageing. The Intelligence quotient study combines topics in areas such as Test, Demography, Psychometrics and Cognitive development.

His most cited work include:

  • Novel genetic associations for blood pressure identified via gene-alcohol interaction in up to 570K individuals across multiple ancestries (799 citations)
  • The impact of childhood intelligence on later life: following up the Scottish mental surveys of 1932 and 1947. (621 citations)
  • DNA methylation age of blood predicts all-cause mortality in later life. (604 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Cognition, Gerontology, Genetics, Genome-wide association study and Dementia. His work deals with themes such as Developmental psychology, Clinical psychology and Cognitive decline, which intersect with Cognition. As a part of the same scientific study, John M. Starr usually deals with the Developmental psychology, concentrating on Audiology and frequently concerns with White matter.

His work in Gerontology addresses subjects such as Cohort study, which are connected to disciplines such as Cohort and Prospective cohort study. His Genome-wide association study research focuses on Internal medicine and how it relates to Hyperintensity and Oncology. John M. Starr has included themes like Alzheimer's disease and Psychiatry in his Dementia study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cognition (35.08%)
  • Gerontology (23.05%)
  • Genetics (19.33%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Genetics (19.33%)
  • Cognition (35.08%)
  • Genome-wide association study (17.54%)

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

Genetics, Cognition, Genome-wide association study, Internal medicine and Dementia are his primary areas of study. His Blood pressure research extends to Genetics, which is thematically connected. His Cognition research incorporates elements of Audiology, Gerontology, Birth cohort and Cognitive decline.

His studies examine the connections between Genome-wide association study and genetics, as well as such issues in Disease, with regards to Bioinformatics and Cohort. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Endocrinology, Oncology and Cardiology. His Dementia research incorporates themes from Odds ratio, Psychiatry and Meta-analysis.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Novel genetic associations for blood pressure identified via gene-alcohol interaction in up to 570K individuals across multiple ancestries (799 citations)
  • Genome-wide association meta-analysis in 269,867 individuals identifies new genetic and functional links to intelligence (403 citations)
  • Genetic analysis of over 1 million people identifies 535 new loci associated with blood pressure traits. (284 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Cognition, Genetic association and Gerontology. John M. Starr interconnects Mendelian randomization, Bioinformatics, Medical genetics, Disease and Locus in the investigation of issues within Genome-wide association study. John M. Starr combines subjects such as White matter, Confidence interval, Audiology and Cognitive decline with his study of Cognition.

His work carried out in the field of Gerontology brings together such families of science as Relative risk, Behavioral medicine, Dementia, Ageing and Socioeconomic status. His Dementia research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Cardiology, Preferred walking speed, Stroke, Psychiatry and Meta-analysis. As part of one scientific family, John M. Starr deals mainly with the area of Socioeconomic status, narrowing it down to issues related to the Body mass index, and often Demography.
