Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Endocrinology
  • Disease

Jorma Viikari mainly investigates Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Genome-wide association study, Genetics and Body mass index. The study of Internal medicine is intertwined with the study of Cardiology in a number of ways. In his research on the topic of Endocrinology, Brachial artery, Tunica media, Artery and El Niño is strongly related with Vascular disease.

His research in Genome-wide association study intersects with topics in Quantitative trait locus, Allele, Genetic association and Medical genetics. His Body mass index research includes elements of Odds ratio and FTO gene. Cohort study is closely connected to Young adult in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Risk factor.

His most cited work include:

  • Association analyses of 249,796 individuals reveal 18 new loci associated with body mass index (2348 citations)
  • Association analyses of 249,796 individuals reveal 18 new loci associated with body mass index (2348 citations)
  • Hundreds of variants clustered in genomic loci and biological pathways affect human height (1614 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Body mass index, Young adult and Cholesterol. Jorma Viikari works mostly in the field of Internal medicine, limiting it down to topics relating to Cardiology and, in certain cases, Brachial artery. Endocrinology is represented through his Blood lipids, Diabetes mellitus, Apolipoprotein B, Triglyceride and Insulin research.

The concepts of his Body mass index study are interwoven with issues in Obesity, Metabolic syndrome and Physiology. His Young adult research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Epidemiology, Cohort study, Prospective cohort study, Pediatrics and Cohort. Cholesterol connects with themes related to Apolipoprotein E in his study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (57.19%)
  • Endocrinology (39.30%)
  • Body mass index (22.66%)

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

  • Internal medicine (57.19%)
  • Body mass index (22.66%)
  • Young adult (18.97%)

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

Jorma Viikari spends much of his time researching Internal medicine, Body mass index, Young adult, Blood pressure and Cohort. Jorma Viikari interconnects Endocrinology and Cardiology in the investigation of issues within Internal medicine. Jorma Viikari has researched Body mass index in several fields, including Prospective cohort study, Obesity, Pediatrics and Cohort study.

His work investigates the relationship between Young adult and topics such as Intima-media thickness that intersect with problems in Odds ratio and Subclinical infection. The Blood pressure study combines topics in areas such as Birth weight, Epidemiology, Insulin, Waist and Risk factor. The study incorporates disciplines such as Associative learning, Blood lipids and Disease in addition to Cohort.

Between 2016 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)
  • Genome-wide Association Study Identifies 27 Loci Influencing Concentrations of Circulating Cytokines and Growth Factors (110 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Gene

His primary areas of investigation include Internal medicine, Body mass index, Cohort study, Pediatrics and Young adult. Jorma Viikari has researched Internal medicine in several fields, including Endocrinology and Cardiology. His Endocrinology research incorporates themes from Population study and Fatty liver.

His Body mass index study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Temperament, Logistic regression, Obesity and Clinical psychology. He usually deals with Pediatrics and limits it to topics linked to Metabolic syndrome and Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus. His work carried out in the field of Young adult brings together such families of science as Sobel test and Risk factor.
