Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome
  • Internal medicine
  • Disease

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Global health, Life expectancy, Epidemiology, Years of potential life lost and Environmental health. His studies deal with areas such as Fertility, Millennium Development Goals, Incidence and Population health as well as Global health. The various areas that he examines in his Life expectancy study include Disease burden, Mortality rate, Cause of death and Gerontology.

His Gerontology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Disability-adjusted life year and Comorbidity. He combines subjects such as Contact tracing, Immunology, Transmission, Developing country and Breast cancer with his study of Epidemiology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Relative risk, Causes of cancer, Public health and Risk factor.

His most cited work include:

  • Global, regional, and national incidence, prevalence, and years lived with disability for 301 acute and chronic diseases and injuries in 188 countries, 1990-2013: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2013 (6156 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national age-sex specific all-cause and cause-specific mortality for 240 causes of death, 1990-2013: A systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2013 (4387 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national life expectancy, all-cause mortality, and cause-specific mortality for 249 causes of death, 1980–2015: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2015 (3027 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Epidemiology, Incidence, Environmental health, Transmission and Public health. His Epidemiology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Psychological intervention, Seroprevalence, Disease and Hepatitis C virus. His study looks at the intersection of Disease and topics like Mortality rate with Global health.

The various areas that Laith J. Abu-Raddad examines in his Incidence study include Meta-analysis, Tuberculosis, Immunology and Confidence interval. His Environmental health study also includes

  • Risk factor, which have a strong connection to Obesity,
  • Disease burden which intersects with area such as Life expectancy. His work in Public health tackles topics such as Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome which are related to areas like Developing country and Health policy.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Epidemiology (75.66%)
  • Incidence (39.82%)
  • Environmental health (30.97%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Epidemiology (75.66%)
  • Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (16.59%)
  • Internal medicine (16.37%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Epidemiology, Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, Internal medicine, Antibody and Incidence. His work carried out in the field of Epidemiology brings together such families of science as Environmental health, Confidence interval, Disease, Vaccination and Seroprevalence. His Environmental health research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Obesity, Public health and Risk factor.

His work in Public health covers topics such as Years of potential life lost which are related to areas like Global health and Population health. His study in Disease is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Transmission, Mortality rate and Pediatrics. His work is dedicated to discovering how Incidence, Psychological intervention are connected with Intensive care unit, Health care and Basic reproduction number and other disciplines.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Global burden of 369 diseases and injuries in 204 countries and territories, 1990–2019: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2019 (224 citations)
  • Global burden of 369 diseases and injuries in 204 countries and territories, 1990–2019: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2019 (224 citations)
  • Global burden of 369 diseases and injuries in 204 countries and territories, 1990–2019: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2019 (224 citations)

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

  • Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome
  • Internal medicine
  • Disease

His primary areas of investigation include Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, Epidemiology, Disease, Internal medicine and Mortality rate. He has included themes like Antibody, Outbreak and Coronavirus in his Epidemiology study. His research integrates issues of Transmission and Disease burden in his study of Mortality rate.

Incidence, Severity of illness and Comorbidity is closely connected to Young adult in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Transmission. The study incorporates disciplines such as Global health, Life expectancy and Population health in addition to Disease burden. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Years of potential life lost, Environmental health is strongly linked to Relative risk.
