Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

His scientific interests lie mostly in Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Internal medicine, Stroke and Rotterdam Study. His work deals with themes such as Alzheimer's disease, Genetic association, Bioinformatics and Medical genetics, which intersect with Genome-wide association study. His study on Genetics is mostly dedicated to connecting different topics, such as Disease.

He combines subjects such as Endocrinology, Surgery and Cardiology with his study of Internal medicine. His Stroke study deals with Vascular disease intersecting with Central nervous system disease. M. Arfan Ikram has researched Rotterdam Study in several fields, including Radiology, Comorbidity, Dementia and Risk factor.

His most cited work include:

  • Meta-analysis of 74,046 individuals identifies 11 new susceptibility loci for Alzheimer's disease (2614 citations)
  • Trends in adult body-mass index in 200 countries from 1975 to 2014: A pooled analysis of 1698 population-based measurement studies with 19.2 million participants (2278 citations)
  • Worldwide trends in body-mass index, underweight, overweight, and obesity from 1975 to 2016: a pooled analysis of 2416 population-based measurement studies in 128·9 million children, adolescents, and adults (2180 citations)

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

M. Arfan Ikram focuses on Rotterdam Study, Internal medicine, Dementia, Genome-wide association study and Genetics. His Rotterdam Study research incorporates elements of Proportional hazards model and Cohort. His study in Internal medicine is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Endocrinology and Cardiology.

M. Arfan Ikram interconnects Cognition, Gerontology and Oncology in the investigation of issues within Dementia. His Genome-wide association study research includes elements of Allele, Locus, Genetic association and Bioinformatics. His study of Gene is a part of Genetics.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Rotterdam Study (36.73%)
  • Internal medicine (36.28%)
  • Dementia (20.41%)

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

  • Rotterdam Study (36.73%)
  • Internal medicine (36.28%)
  • Dementia (20.41%)

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

His primary areas of study are Rotterdam Study, Internal medicine, Dementia, Genome-wide association study and Disease. In his study, Gerontology, Gastroenterology and Body mass index is strongly linked to Cohort, which falls under the umbrella field of Rotterdam Study. His Internal medicine research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Endocrinology and Cardiology.

His Dementia study incorporates themes from Stroke, Demography, Cognition and Oncology. His Genome-wide association study research incorporates themes from Apolipoprotein E and Genetic association. His Disease research integrates issues from Mendelian randomization and Bioinformatics.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Whole exome sequencing study identifies novel rare and common Alzheimer's-Associated variants involved in immune response and transcriptional regulation (93 citations)
  • Objectives, design and main findings until 2020 from the Rotterdam Study. (57 citations)
  • Antihypertensive medications and risk for incident dementia and Alzheimer's disease: a meta-analysis of individual participant data from prospective cohort studies (40 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

M. Arfan Ikram mainly focuses on Rotterdam Study, Internal medicine, Prospective cohort study, Disease and Genome-wide association study. The Rotterdam Study study combines topics in areas such as Cancer, Etiology and Cohort. The concepts of his Internal medicine study are interwoven with issues in Gastroenterology, Type 2 diabetes and Cardiology.

His Prospective cohort study research includes elements of Socioeconomic status and Confidence interval. His Disease research includes themes of Psychiatry and Gene. His Genome-wide association study study is concerned with Genetics in general.
