What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

His primary scientific interests are in Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Genome-wide association study, Gerontology and Genetics. His research combines Inflammation and Endocrinology. His Genome-wide association study research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Allele, Genetic association, Locus and Bioinformatics.

His Gerontology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Cohort study, MEDLINE, Cross-sectional study, Activities of daily living and Geriatrics. In his research, Gait is intimately related to Preferred walking speed, which falls under the overarching field of Body mass index. His study in Prospective cohort study is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Physical therapy and Hazard ratio.

His most cited work include:

  • A short physical performance battery assessing lower extremity function: association with self-reported disability and prediction of mortality and nursing home admission. (5344 citations)
  • A common variant in the FTO gene is associated with body mass index and predisposes to childhood and adult obesity (3415 citations)
  • Lower-Extremity Function in Persons over the Age of 70 Years as a Predictor of Subsequent Disability (2931 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Gerontology, Longitudinal study and Physical therapy. His studies in Internal medicine integrate themes in fields like Diabetes mellitus and Cardiology. His research integrates issues of Inflammation, Genome-wide association study and Risk factor in his study of Endocrinology.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Epidemiology, Cohort study, Cognition, Dementia and Geriatrics in addition to Gerontology. His research on Longitudinal study often connects related areas such as Disease. His Physical therapy study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Ankle and Physical medicine and rehabilitation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (40.69%)
  • Endocrinology (22.01%)
  • Gerontology (17.74%)

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

  • Internal medicine (40.69%)
  • Longitudinal study (13.88%)
  • Disease (8.72%)

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

Internal medicine, Longitudinal study, Disease, Skeletal muscle and Endocrinology are his primary areas of study. Luigi Ferrucci has researched Internal medicine in several fields, including Oncology and Cardiology. His work carried out in the field of Longitudinal study brings together such families of science as Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Linear regression, Demography, Rating of perceived exertion and Physiology.

His research investigates the connection between Physical medicine and rehabilitation and topics such as Cognition that intersect with issues in Gerontology and Dementia. His Disease research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Diabetes mellitus, Arterial disease and Clinical trial, Bioinformatics. His biological study deals with issues like Mitochondrion, which deal with fields such as Oxidative phosphorylation.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Inflammageing: chronic inflammation in ageing, cardiovascular disease, and frailty (458 citations)
  • Chronic inflammation in the etiology of disease across the life span (312 citations)
  • DNA methylation GrimAge strongly predicts lifespan and healthspan (231 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

Luigi Ferrucci spends much of his time researching Internal medicine, Longitudinal study, Disease, Gerontology and Endocrinology. Luigi Ferrucci is involved in the study of Internal medicine that focuses on Biomarker in particular. His study on Longitudinal study also encompasses disciplines like

  • Brain size, which have a strong connection to Entorhinal cortex and Neurodegeneration,
  • Rating of perceived exertion together with Physical therapy,
  • Body mass index which is related to area like Cohort study, Odds ratio and Confidence interval.

His research in Disease intersects with topics in Diabetes mellitus, Vitamin D and neurology, Arterial disease and Clinical trial. His research investigates the link between Gerontology and topics such as Cognition that cross with problems in Psychosocial. The various areas that Luigi Ferrucci examines in his Endocrinology study include Coronary artery disease and Senescence.
