Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Cancer

Demography, Years of potential life lost, Global health, Environmental health and Mortality rate are his primary areas of study. His Demography study combines topics in areas such as Life expectancy, Epidemiology and Birth rate. His Years of potential life lost study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Cancer, Breast cancer and Cause of death.

His Global health research integrates issues from Fertility and Disease burden. The concepts of his Environmental health study are interwoven with issues in Influenza vaccine, Vaccination, Cost-effectiveness analysis, Public health and Risk factor. The study incorporates disciplines such as Disability-adjusted life year, Disease, Incidence and Gerontology in addition to Mortality rate.

His most cited work include:

  • Global, Regional, and National Cancer Incidence, Mortality, Years of Life Lost, Years Lived With Disability, and Disability-Adjusted Life-Years for 29 Cancer Groups, 1990 to 2016: A Systematic Analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study. (2660 citations)
  • Global, Regional, and National Cancer Incidence, Mortality, Years of Life Lost, Years Lived With Disability, and Disability-Adjusted Life-Years for 29 Cancer Groups, 1990 to 2016: A Systematic Analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study. (2660 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national incidence, prevalence, and years lived with disability for 354 diseases and injuries for 195 countries and territories, 1990-2017: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2017 (2508 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Vaccination, Internal medicine, Cost-effectiveness analysis, Intensive care medicine and Environmental health. His work carried out in the field of Vaccination brings together such families of science as Demography, Epidemiology, Pediatrics and Economic evaluation. His Economic evaluation research incorporates themes from Health economics and Actuarial science.

He combines subjects such as Surgery, Oncology and Cardiology with his study of Internal medicine. His Cost-effectiveness analysis study frequently draws connections between related disciplines such as Quality-adjusted life year. His Environmental health study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Health care and Public health.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Vaccination (18.85%)
  • Internal medicine (18.10%)
  • Cost-effectiveness analysis (16.49%)

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

  • Environmental health (15.83%)
  • Internal medicine (18.10%)
  • Vaccination (18.85%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Environmental health, Internal medicine, Vaccination, Demography and Intensive care medicine. His Environmental health research also works with subjects such as

  • Health care which intersects with area such as Cost-effectiveness analysis,
  • Risk factor that intertwine with fields like Relative risk. His Vaccination research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Pediatrics and Economic evaluation.

His Demography study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Global health, Epidemiology and Poisson regression. His work on Disease burden expands to the thematically related Global health. As part of one scientific family, Maarten J. Postma deals mainly with the area of Mortality rate, narrowing it down to issues related to the Years of potential life lost, and often Disease.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Global, Regional, and National Cancer Incidence, Mortality, Years of Life Lost, Years Lived With Disability, and Disability-Adjusted Life-Years for 29 Cancer Groups, 1990 to 2016: A Systematic Analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study. (2660 citations)
  • Global, Regional, and National Cancer Incidence, Mortality, Years of Life Lost, Years Lived With Disability, and Disability-Adjusted Life-Years for 29 Cancer Groups, 1990 to 2016: A Systematic Analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study. (2660 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national incidence, prevalence, and years lived with disability for 354 diseases and injuries for 195 countries and territories, 1990-2017: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2017 (2508 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Cancer

His primary areas of investigation include Environmental health, Demography, Global health, Mortality rate and Years of potential life lost. His Environmental health research includes themes of Incidence, COPD, Public health, Developing country and Risk factor. His study on Demography also encompasses disciplines like

  • Epidemiology which is related to area like Rotavirus,
  • Vaccination which connect with Confidence interval.

Maarten J. Postma has researched Global health in several fields, including Quality-adjusted life year and Disease burden. His Mortality rate research integrates issues from Life expectancy and Verbal autopsy. His research on Years of potential life lost also deals with topics like

  • Disability-adjusted life year, which have a strong connection to Cancer prevention and Gerontology,
  • Breast cancer together with Oncology.
