Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

Her primary areas of investigation include Internal medicine, Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Dementia and Alzheimer's disease. Lenore J. Launer combines subjects such as Endocrinology and Cardiology with her study of Internal medicine. Her Cardiology research incorporates elements of Stroke and Hyperintensity.

Her Genome-wide association study research integrates issues from Obesity, Bioinformatics, Allele, Genetic association and Locus. Her studies examine the connections between Genetics and genetics, as well as such issues in Body mass index, with regards to FTO gene, SH2B1 and Glucose homeostasis. Her Dementia research includes themes of Prospective cohort study, Gerontology and Cohort.

Her most cited work include:

  • Biological, clinical and population relevance of 95 loci for blood lipids (2804 citations)
  • Meta-analysis of 74,046 individuals identifies 11 new susceptibility loci for Alzheimer's disease (2614 citations)
  • Association analyses of 249,796 individuals reveal 18 new loci associated with body mass index (2348 citations)

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

Her primary scientific interests are in Internal medicine, Dementia, Genome-wide association study, Genetics and Gerontology. Her Internal medicine research integrates issues from Endocrinology and Cardiology. The concepts of her Cardiology study are interwoven with issues in Magnetic resonance imaging, Hyperintensity, Pathology and Stroke.

Her studies deal with areas such as Alzheimer's disease and Cognition as well as Dementia. Her Genome-wide association study research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Meta-analysis, Genetic association, Locus and Bioinformatics. Her research in Cohort study intersects with topics in Odds ratio, Prospective cohort study and Risk factor.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (39.22%)
  • Dementia (20.91%)
  • Genome-wide association study (20.59%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Internal medicine (39.22%)
  • Genome-wide association study (20.59%)
  • Genetics (16.36%)

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

Internal medicine, Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Cardiology and Dementia are her primary areas of study. Her Internal medicine study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Diabetes mellitus and Magnetic resonance imaging. Her research integrates issues of Bioinformatics, Medical genetics, Meta-analysis, Genetic association and Locus in her study of Genome-wide association study.

Her studies in Cardiology integrate themes in fields like Hyperintensity and Blood pressure. Lenore J. Launer combines subjects such as Cognition, Gerontology and Depression with her study of Dementia. Her study looks at the relationship between Cognition and fields such as Digit symbol substitution test, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.

Between 2016 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Novel genetic associations for blood pressure identified via gene-alcohol interaction in up to 570K individuals across multiple ancestries (799 citations)
  • Rare coding variants in PLCG2, ABI3, and TREM2 implicate microglial-mediated innate immunity in Alzheimer's disease (429 citations)
  • Rare coding variants in PLCG2, ABI3, and TREM2 implicate microglial-mediated innate immunity in Alzheimer's disease (429 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

Her primary areas of study are Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Internal medicine, Dementia and Genetic association. Her study explores the link between Genome-wide association study and topics such as Medical genetics that cross with problems in Polymorphism and Obesity. Her Internal medicine study incorporates themes from Diabetes mellitus and Cardiology.

As part of the same scientific family, she usually focuses on Cardiology, concentrating on Magnetic resonance imaging and intersecting with Neuroimaging. Her Dementia research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Meta-analysis, Cohort study and Depression. Lenore J. Launer has included themes like Framingham Heart Study, Proportional hazards model, Incidence and Cohort in her Cohort study study.
