Fellow of The Academy of Medical Sciences, United Kingdom

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Statistics

His primary scientific interests are in Global health, Environmental health, Demography, Gerontology and Epidemiology. Majid Ezzati combines subjects such as Young adult, Mortality rate, Representativeness heuristic and Psychological intervention with his study of Global health. The concepts of his Mortality rate study are interwoven with issues in Cause of death, Years of potential life lost and Pediatrics.

His Environmental health study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Disease, Disease burden, Indoor air quality, Population health and Risk factor. The various areas that Majid Ezzati examines in his Demography study include Body mass index, Life expectancy and Public health. While the research belongs to areas of Gerontology, Majid Ezzati spends his time largely on the problem of Blood pressure, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Confidence interval.

His most cited work include:

  • Global and regional mortality from 235 causes of death for 20 age groups in 1990 and 2010: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2010 (8830 citations)
  • A comparative risk assessment of burden of disease and injury attributable to 67 risk factors and risk factor clusters in 21 regions, 1990-2010: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2010 (7776 citations)
  • Disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) for 291 diseases and injuries in 21 regions, 1990-2010: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2010 (5887 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Environmental health, Demography, Global health, Gerontology and Epidemiology. His research integrates issues of Psychological intervention, Disease, Disease burden, Public health and Risk factor in his study of Environmental health. His research investigates the connection between Demography and topics such as Body mass index that intersect with issues in Obesity.

Global health is often connected to Malnutrition in his work. Majid Ezzati integrates Gerontology with Quality-adjusted life year in his research. His Epidemiology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Incidence and Pediatrics.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental health (40.16%)
  • Demography (26.23%)
  • Global health (18.03%)

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

  • Environmental health (40.16%)
  • Demography (26.23%)
  • Public health (15.37%)

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

Environmental health, Demography, Public health, Global health and Epidemiology are his primary areas of study. His Environmental health research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Cardiovascular mortality, Stove and Blood pressure. Majid Ezzati mostly deals with Mortality rate in his studies of Demography.

His Public health study combines topics in areas such as Psychological intervention, Life expectancy, Economic growth and Disease. His work carried out in the field of Epidemiology brings together such families of science as Cohort and Hazard ratio. His work in Obesity addresses subjects such as Body mass index, which are connected to disciplines such as Malnutrition.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The Global Syndemic of Obesity, Undernutrition, and Climate Change: The Lancet Commission report (592 citations)
  • NCD Countdown 2030: worldwide trends in non-communicable disease mortality and progress towards Sustainable Development Goal target 3.4 (210 citations)
  • The obesity transition: stages of the global epidemic (154 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Statistics

Majid Ezzati mainly investigates Environmental health, Demography, Public health, Global health and Blood pressure. Majid Ezzati integrates Environmental health and World health in his studies. His work in the fields of Demography, such as Mortality rate, overlaps with other areas such as Latin Americans.

Majid Ezzati interconnects Psychological intervention, Life expectancy, Economic growth and Disease in the investigation of issues within Public health. In the field of Disease, his study on Disease burden overlaps with subjects such as Sense organ and Quality-adjusted life year. His Global health research incorporates themes from Family medicine, Impaired glucose tolerance, Population health and Health policy.
