Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Internal medicine

His primary areas of study are Genetics, Genome-wide association study, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Genetic association and Internal medicine. His work in Genetics covers topics such as Body mass index which are related to areas like Obesity. His Genome-wide association study research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Case-control study, Quantitative trait locus, Genetic architecture, Disease and Locus.

His Single-nucleotide polymorphism study combines topics in areas such as Psychosis, Genetic variation, Cholesterol and Copy-number variation. His Genetic association study combines topics in areas such as Meta-analysis, Bone mineral, Osteoporosis, Femoral neck and Heritability. Kari Stefansson interconnects Endocrinology, Oncology and Cardiology in the investigation of issues within Internal medicine.

His most cited work include:

  • Biological insights from 108 schizophrenia-associated genetic loci (5211 citations)
  • Biological, clinical and population relevance of 95 loci for blood lipids (2887 citations)
  • Biological, clinical and population relevance of 95 loci for blood lipids (2887 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Genetics, Genome-wide association study, Internal medicine, Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Genetic association. His study in Allele, Gene, Locus, Genotype and Haplotype falls within the category of Genetics. Specifically, his work in Allele is concerned with the study of Allele frequency.

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

  • Bioinformatics that connect with fields like Disease,
  • Odds ratio that connect with fields like Missense mutation. His Internal medicine research incorporates themes from Endocrinology, Type 2 diabetes, Oncology and Cardiology. His study involves SNP and Linkage disequilibrium, a branch of Single-nucleotide polymorphism.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (79.16%)
  • Genome-wide association study (77.28%)
  • Internal medicine (35.01%)

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

  • Genome-wide association study (77.28%)
  • Genetics (79.16%)
  • Internal medicine (35.01%)

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

His main research concerns Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Internal medicine, Genetic association and Disease. The concepts of his Genome-wide association study study are interwoven with issues in Bioinformatics, Quantitative trait locus, Genetic architecture, Meta-analysis and Atrial fibrillation. His studies deal with areas such as Mendelian Randomization Analysis, Human genetics and Genetic predisposition as well as Bioinformatics.

His Genetics research focuses on Allele, Gene, Locus, Genotype and Single-nucleotide polymorphism. His Single-nucleotide polymorphism research includes elements of Bioelectrical impedance analysis and Lean body mass. His Internal medicine study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Endocrinology, Oncology and Cardiology.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Spread of SARS-CoV-2 in the Icelandic Population. (909 citations)
  • Discovery of the first genome-wide significant risk loci for attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (785 citations)
  • Discovery of the first genome-wide significant risk loci for attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (785 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Mutation

Kari Stefansson mostly deals with Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Internal medicine, Allele and Schizophrenia. His Genome-wide association study research incorporates elements of Case-control study, Quantitative trait locus, Genetic architecture, Expression quantitative trait loci and Genetic association. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including PCSK9 and Genetic diversity.

His research in Internal medicine intersects with topics in Endocrinology and Oncology. His work on Haplotype as part of general Allele research is frequently linked to Linear relationship, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. His research in Locus tackles topics such as Bioelectrical impedance analysis which are related to areas like Single-nucleotide polymorphism.
