Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Cancer
  • Gene
  • Internal medicine

Kari Hemminki mainly investigates Internal medicine, Cancer, Oncology, Risk factor and Genetics. Her study in Internal medicine is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Immunology and Pathology. Her Cancer research includes themes of Offspring, Epidemiology, Incidence, Surgery and Lung cancer.

Her study focuses on the intersection of Oncology and fields such as Adenocarcinoma with connections in the field of Metastasis. Kari Hemminki works mostly in the field of Risk factor, limiting it down to topics relating to Age of onset and, in certain cases, Relative risk, as a part of the same area of interest. Kari Hemminki has researched Breast cancer in several fields, including Cancer research and Proportional hazards model.

Her most cited work include:

  • Environmental and Heritable Factors in the Causation of Cancer — Analyses of Cohorts of Twins from Sweden, Denmark, and Finland (3206 citations)
  • TERT Promoter Mutations in Familial and Sporadic Melanoma (1177 citations)
  • TERT Promoter Mutations in Familial and Sporadic Melanoma (1177 citations)

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

Internal medicine, Cancer, Oncology, Genetics and Incidence are her primary areas of study. The various areas that Kari Hemminki examines in her Internal medicine study include Immunology and Pathology. Her research investigates the connection between Cancer and topics such as Risk factor that intersect with problems in Gynecology.

Her research in Oncology focuses on subjects like Hazard ratio, which are connected to Proportional hazards model. Her Incidence research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Surgery, Epidemiology, Etiology, Disease and Pediatrics. Her Single-nucleotide polymorphism research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Odds ratio, Case-control study and Allele.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (66.76%)
  • Cancer (57.14%)
  • Oncology (46.95%)

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

  • Internal medicine (66.76%)
  • Oncology (46.95%)
  • Cancer (57.14%)

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

Kari Hemminki mostly deals with Internal medicine, Oncology, Cancer, Genome-wide association study and Genetics. The Oncology study combines topics in areas such as Second Primary Cancers, Cancer registry, Metastasis, Melanoma and Colorectal cancer. Her Cancer research integrates issues from Etiology and Lymphoma.

Her Genome-wide association study study also includes fields such as

  • Genetic predisposition, which have a strong connection to Candidate gene,
  • Allele and related Genotype. As part of her studies on Genetics, Kari Hemminki often connects relevant areas like Case-control study. Her Incidence research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Kidney cancer, Epidemiology, Pediatrics and Disease.

Between 2015 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Patterns of metastasis in colon and rectal cancer (292 citations)
  • Patterns of metastasis in colon and rectal cancer (292 citations)
  • ESMO Consensus Conference on testicular germ cell cancer: diagnosis, treatment and follow-up (105 citations)

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

  • Cancer
  • Gene
  • Internal medicine

Kari Hemminki focuses on Internal medicine, Oncology, Cancer, Genome-wide association study and Genetics. Her Internal medicine study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as Melanoma. Her Oncology research includes elements of Cancer registry, Metastasis, Lung, Breast cancer and Colorectal cancer.

The concepts of her Cancer study are interwoven with issues in Relative risk, Leukemia and Malignancy. Her work carried out in the field of Genome-wide association study brings together such families of science as Case-control study, Allele, Genetic association and Genetic predisposition. Her studies in Incidence integrate themes in fields like Young adult and Pediatrics.
