Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Dementia

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Dementia, Gerontology, Alzheimer's disease, Risk factor and Psychiatry. Her Dementia study improves the overall literature in Disease. She combines subjects such as Twin study, Multimorbidity, Epidemiology, Incidence and Activities of daily living with her study of Gerontology.

Laura Fratiglioni has researched Alzheimer's disease in several fields, including Memory disorder, Genetics, Genome-wide association study, Central nervous system disease and Comorbidity. Her Genetics research incorporates elements of Apolipoprotein E and Case-control study. Her study on Risk factor also encompasses disciplines like

  • Relative risk together with Age of onset,
  • Odds ratio and related Blood pressure.

Her most cited work include:

  • Global prevalence of dementia: a Delphi consensus study (4283 citations)
  • Mild cognitive impairment--beyond controversies, towards a consensus: report of the International Working Group on Mild Cognitive Impairment. (3499 citations)
  • Meta-analysis of 74,046 individuals identifies 11 new susceptibility loci for Alzheimer's disease (2822 citations)

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

Laura Fratiglioni mainly focuses on Dementia, Gerontology, Disease, Cognition and Internal medicine. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Alzheimer's disease, Psychiatry, Epidemiology and Risk factor. Her research integrates issues of Longitudinal study, Genetics, Surgery, Pediatrics and Vascular dementia in her study of Alzheimer's disease.

Her research on Gerontology also deals with topics like

  • Cohort study and related Incidence,
  • Cohort and related Proportional hazards model and Stroke. While the research belongs to areas of Cognition, Laura Fratiglioni spends her time largely on the problem of Clinical psychology, intersecting her research to questions surrounding Depression. Laura Fratiglioni has researched Internal medicine in several fields, including Diabetes mellitus, Oncology and Cardiology.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Dementia (53.91%)
  • Gerontology (44.09%)
  • Disease (17.64%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Dementia (53.91%)
  • Gerontology (44.09%)
  • Cognition (16.47%)

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

Laura Fratiglioni mostly deals with Dementia, Gerontology, Cognition, Geriatrics and Cognitive decline. She combines subjects such as Apolipoprotein E, Population based study and Hazard ratio with her study of Dementia. Her Gerontology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Cohort study, Diabetes mellitus, Activities of daily living, Population based and Cohort.

Her Cognition research focuses on subjects like Clinical psychology, which are linked to Depression. Her Geriatrics research incorporates themes from Prospective cohort study and Epidemiology. Her Internal medicine and Alzheimer's disease and Disease investigations all form part of her Internal medicine research activities.

Between 2015 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Defeating Alzheimer's disease and other dementias: a priority for European science and society (858 citations)
  • Rare coding variants in PLCG2, ABI3, and TREM2 implicate microglial-mediated innate immunity in Alzheimer's disease (496 citations)
  • Rare coding variants in PLCG2, ABI3, and TREM2 implicate microglial-mediated innate immunity in Alzheimer's disease (496 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Dementia

Dementia, Gerontology, Geriatrics, Cognitive decline and Cognition are her primary areas of study. Her Dementia research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Alzheimer's disease, Epidemiology and Clinical psychology. Her Alzheimer's disease research includes themes of Common disease-common variant, Minor allele frequency, Allele frequency and Vascular dementia.

Her Gerontology research includes elements of Psychological intervention, Multimorbidity, Cohort study, Hazard ratio and Life course approach. Her studies deal with areas such as Preferred walking speed, Elderly care and Activities of daily living as well as Geriatrics. Her work on Cognitive skill as part of general Cognition research is frequently linked to Association, bridging the gap between disciplines.
