Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Genetics

Kirsten Ohm Kyvik spends much of her time researching Twin study, Internal medicine, Demography, Genetics and Heritability. Her work on Dizygotic twin as part of general Twin study study is frequently linked to Monozygotic twin, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. The various areas that she examines in her Internal medicine study include Gastroenterology, Endocrinology and Immunology.

Her research in Demography intersects with topics in Body mass index, Response rate, Genetic variation and Prevalence. Her work carried out in the field of Genetics brings together such families of science as Blood lipids, Disease and Type 2 diabetes. The concepts of her Genome-wide association study study are interwoven with issues in Genotyping, Smoking cessation and Cholesterol.

Her most cited work include:

  • Biological, clinical and population relevance of 95 loci for blood lipids (2804 citations)
  • Discovery and refinement of loci associated with lipid levels (1814 citations)
  • A genome-wide association search for type 2 diabetes genes in African Americans. (1727 citations)

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

Kirsten Ohm Kyvik mostly deals with Twin study, Internal medicine, Demography, Heritability and Danish. Her Twin study study is concerned with Genetics in general. Her research investigates the link between Internal medicine and topics such as Endocrinology that cross with problems in Anti-thyroid autoantibodies.

Her Demography research incorporates elements of Body mass index, Odds ratio, Young adult, Genetic variation and Cohort. Her work in Heritability tackles topics such as Cohort study which are related to areas like Surgery. Her work investigates the relationship between Pediatrics and topics such as Epidemiology that intersect with problems in Physical therapy.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Twin study (35.18%)
  • Internal medicine (30.28%)
  • Demography (26.44%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Demography (26.44%)
  • Twin study (35.18%)
  • Internal medicine (30.28%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Demography, Twin study, Internal medicine, Danish and Body mass index. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Young adult, Gerontology, Gene–environment interaction, Heritability and Genetic variation. Her Twin study study is associated with Genetics.

Her work on Genetic association, Gene and Telomere as part of general Genetics research is frequently linked to Monozygotic twin, bridging the gap between disciplines. Kirsten Ohm Kyvik combines subjects such as Endocrinology and Cardiology with her study of Internal medicine. While the research belongs to areas of Body mass index, Kirsten Ohm Kyvik spends her time largely on the problem of Obesity, intersecting her research to questions surrounding Pooled analysis.

Between 2014 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • The heritability of leucocyte telomere length dynamics (114 citations)
  • Genetic and environmental effects on body mass index from infancy to the onset of adulthood: an individual-based pooled analysis of 45 twin cohorts participating in the COllaborative project of Development of Anthropometrical measures in Twins (CODATwins) study (91 citations)
  • Genetic and environmental influences on height from infancy to early adulthood: An individual-based pooled analysis of 45 twin cohorts (76 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

Demography, Young adult, Body mass index, Heritability and Twin study are her primary areas of study. Her Demography research includes themes of Meta-analysis, Cohort and Environmental exposure. Her Young adult study which covers Cohort study that intersects with Birth weight, Zygosity and Cumulative incidence.

Her Body mass index research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Obesity, Surgery, Gerontology, Gene–environment interaction and Genetic variation. Her Twin study research is included under the broader classification of Genetics. She interconnects Psoriasis and Risk factor in the investigation of issues within Genetics.
