Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Cancer
  • Gene
  • Mutation

His main research concerns Breast cancer, Internal medicine, Cancer, Oncology and Gynecology. His work carried out in the field of Breast cancer brings together such families of science as Odds ratio, Cancer research, Ovarian cancer and Risk factor. His Cancer research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Mutation, Family medicine, Medical genetics, Pathology and Genetic testing.

His Oncology research includes themes of Germline mutation, Mammary gland, Gene mutation, Estrogen receptor and Genetic counseling. His study in Germline mutation is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Adjuvant therapy and Germline. His Gynecology study also includes

  • BRCA mutation and related Fallopian tube,
  • Disease together with Relative risk.

His most cited work include:

  • Risk-reducing salpingo-oophorectomy in women with a BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation. (1060 citations)
  • Recommendations for follow-up care of individuals with an inherited predisposition to Cancer. II. BRCA1 and BRCA2 (796 citations)
  • The complete BRCA2 gene and mutations in chromosome 13q-linked kindreds. (749 citations)

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

Kenneth Offit mainly focuses on Internal medicine, Oncology, Cancer, Breast cancer and Genetics. His Internal medicine course of study focuses on Germline and Cancer research. The various areas that he examines in his Oncology study include BRCA mutation, Case-control study, Disease, Prostate cancer and Family history.

Kenneth Offit works mostly in the field of Cancer, limiting it down to topics relating to Genetic testing and, in certain cases, Genetic counseling and Family medicine, as a part of the same area of interest. His research in Breast cancer intersects with topics in Ovarian cancer, Genotype and Risk factor. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Lymphoma, Genetic association and Genetic predisposition.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (50.96%)
  • Oncology (45.89%)
  • Cancer (39.32%)

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

  • Internal medicine (50.96%)
  • Oncology (45.89%)
  • Cancer (39.32%)

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

His primary areas of study are Internal medicine, Oncology, Cancer, Colorectal cancer and Germline. Internal medicine is closely attributed to Germline mutation in his research. Family history is closely connected to Cohort in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Oncology.

His Cancer research incorporates themes from Gene, Candidate gene, Cancer syndrome, Computational biology and Genetic testing. His Colorectal cancer study combines topics in areas such as Mendelian randomization, Genome-wide association study, Gastroenterology, Case-control study and Genotype. Kenneth Offit combines subjects such as Prostate cancer and Risk factor with his study of Breast cancer.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Polygenic Risk Scores for Prediction of Breast Cancer and Breast Cancer Subtypes (257 citations)
  • Discovery of common and rare genetic risk variants for colorectal cancer (131 citations)
  • Discovery of common and rare genetic risk variants for colorectal cancer (131 citations)

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

  • Cancer
  • Gene
  • Mutation

His primary areas of investigation include Internal medicine, Oncology, Cancer, Colorectal cancer and Breast cancer. His Internal medicine study frequently links to related topics such as Germline mutation. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Epidemiology, Lynch syndrome, Confidence interval, Ovarian cancer and Prostate cancer.

His Cancer research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Cancer research, Genetic testing and DNA sequencing, Gene, Germline. His Colorectal cancer research integrates issues from Mendelian randomization, Genome-wide association study, Case-control study and Clinical significance. His research in Breast cancer intersects with topics in Psychosocial, Hereditary diffuse gastric cancer and Risk factor.
