Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Statistics
  • Disease

Her primary areas of investigation include Epidemiology, Body mass index, Surgery, Myocardial infarction and Genome-wide association study. Her Epidemiology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Stroke, Incidence, Cause of death and Risk factor. Kari Kuulasmaa has included themes like Obesity and Public health in her Body mass index study.

Her research integrates issues of Cross-sectional study, Socioeconomic status and Gerontology in her study of Obesity. The concepts of her Gerontology study are interwoven with issues in Global health and Smoking cessation. In Myocardial infarction, Kari Kuulasmaa works on issues like Coronary heart disease, which are connected to Case fatality rate, Medical emergency, Emergency medicine and Pediatrics.

Her 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)
  • Myocardial infarction and coronary deaths in the World Health Organization MONICA Project. Registration procedures, event rates, and case-fatality rates in 38 populations from 21 countries in four continents. (1906 citations)

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

Kari Kuulasmaa mostly deals with Internal medicine, Epidemiology, Cardiology, Gerontology and Risk factor. Her research brings together the fields of Endocrinology and Internal medicine. Her Epidemiology research includes themes of Coronary heart disease, Incidence, Surgery, Myocardial infarction and Public health.

Her study brings together the fields of Case fatality rate and Myocardial infarction. The study incorporates disciplines such as Who monica, Disease, Obesity and Cohort study in addition to Gerontology. Her work in Risk factor tackles topics such as Blood pressure which are related to areas like Environmental health, Body mass index and Framingham Risk Score.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (31.34%)
  • Epidemiology (20.23%)
  • Cardiology (15.95%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Internal medicine (31.34%)
  • Cardiology (15.95%)
  • Atrial fibrillation (5.98%)

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

Kari Kuulasmaa mainly focuses on Internal medicine, Cardiology, Atrial fibrillation, Heart failure and Risk factor. Her research integrates issues of Stroke and Cohort study in her study of Cardiology. Her Heart failure research incorporates themes from Epidemiology and Cardiovascular risk factors.

Kari Kuulasmaa has included themes like Missing data and Selection bias in her Epidemiology study. Kari Kuulasmaa interconnects Meta-analysis, Cancer, Genetics and Lung cancer in the investigation of issues within Risk factor. Kari Kuulasmaa frequently studies issues relating to Blood pressure and Myocardial infarction.

Between 2017 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Refining the accuracy of validated target identification through coding variant fine-mapping in type 2 diabetes (165 citations)
  • Protein-altering variants associated with body mass index implicate pathways that control energy intake and expenditure in obesity (145 citations)
  • Cohort Profile: The National FINRISK Study. (93 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Statistics
  • Disease

Internal medicine, Cohort, Proportional hazards model, Hazard ratio and Cardiology are her primary areas of study. In the field of Internal medicine, her study on Heart failure, Cohort study, Testosterone and Atrial fibrillation overlaps with subjects such as Risk assessment. Her Epidemiology research extends to the thematically linked field of Heart failure.

Her Cohort study research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Emergency department and Myocardial infarction. Her Cohort research integrates issues from Gerontology and Cholesterol. Her Blood pressure course of study focuses on Global health and Risk factor.
