Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Cancer
  • Gene

Prospective cohort study, European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition, Internal medicine, Cohort study and Risk factor are his primary areas of study. He interconnects Incidence, Gynecology, Proportional hazards model, Breast cancer and Cohort in the investigation of issues within Prospective cohort study. His European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Environmental health and Hazard ratio.

His Internal medicine research includes elements of Gastroenterology, Endocrinology and Oncology. His Cohort study research incorporates elements of Epidemiology, Gerontology, Cross-sectional study, Mediterranean diet and Physical therapy. Kim Overvad studied Risk factor and Endometrial cancer that intersect with Menopause.

His 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)
  • Plasma HDL cholesterol and risk of myocardial infarction: A mendelian randomisation study (1555 citations)
  • General and abdominal adiposity and risk of death in Europe. (1526 citations)

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

Kim Overvad mostly deals with Internal medicine, Prospective cohort study, European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition, Cohort study and Cohort. He has included themes like Endocrinology and Oncology in his Internal medicine study. His work deals with themes such as Gerontology, Relative risk, Gynecology, Proportional hazards model and Hazard ratio, which intersect with Prospective cohort study.

His European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition study incorporates themes from Odds ratio, Colorectal cancer and Gastroenterology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Epidemiology, Incidence, Environmental health and Lower risk, Confidence interval. His studies deal with areas such as Stroke and Physiology as well as Cohort.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (73.93%)
  • Prospective cohort study (46.68%)
  • European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (41.80%)

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

  • Internal medicine (73.93%)
  • Cohort (36.41%)
  • Cohort study (41.34%)

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

His main research concerns Internal medicine, Cohort, Cohort study, Prospective cohort study and Hazard ratio. His Internal medicine study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as Oncology. The various areas that Kim Overvad examines in his Cohort study include Adipose tissue, Odds ratio, Gastroenterology and Physiology.

His Cohort study study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Epidemiology, Environmental health, Lower risk, Stroke and Type 2 diabetes. His Hazard ratio research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Myocardial infarction, Linoleic acid and Risk factor. His European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition study is concerned with the larger field of Body mass index.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Risk thresholds for alcohol consumption: combined analysis of individual-participant data for 599 912 current drinkers in 83 prospective studies (385 citations)
  • Risk thresholds for alcohol consumption: combined analysis of individual-participant data for 599 912 current drinkers in 83 prospective studies (385 citations)
  • Separate and combined associations of obesity and metabolic health with coronary heart disease: a pan-European case-cohort analysis (118 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Cancer
  • Gene

Kim Overvad spends much of his time researching Internal medicine, Cohort study, Prospective cohort study, Cohort and European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition. His Internal medicine research includes themes of Endocrinology and Oncology. The concepts of his Cohort study study are interwoven with issues in Obesity, Epidemiology, Proportional hazards model, Hazard ratio and Type 2 diabetes.

Kim Overvad has researched Prospective cohort study in several fields, including Body mass index, Absolute risk reduction, Lower risk, Stroke and Breast cancer. His Cohort research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Odds ratio and Environmental health. His study in European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Alcohol, Metabolite, Colorectal cancer, Physiology and Confounding.
