Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Cancer
  • Gene

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Internal medicine, Risk factor, Cancer, Odds ratio and Genetics. Her Internal medicine study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Endocrinology, Methylation and Oncology. Her study on Endocrinology also encompasses disciplines like

  • Epigenetics and related Pathology,
  • DNA methylation which connect with Microarray and Microarray analysis techniques.

Her Risk factor research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Epidemiology, Basal cell carcinoma, Surgery and Confidence interval. The various areas that Margaret R. Karagas examines in her Cancer study include Lung cancer, Carcinoma, Toxicology and Environmental health. Her research integrates issues of Gastroenterology, XRCC1, Case-control study and Sunburn in her study of Odds ratio.

Her most cited work include:

  • Erratum: Genetic variation in the prostate stem cell antigen gene PSCA confers susceptibility to urinary bladder cancer (Nature Genetics (2009) 41 (991-995)) (1460 citations)
  • Aging and Environmental Exposures Alter Tissue-Specific DNA Methylation Dependent upon CpG Island Context (802 citations)
  • Evidence on the human health effects of low-level methylmercury exposure. (411 citations)

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

Her main research concerns Internal medicine, Bladder cancer, Cancer, Odds ratio and Case-control study. Her Internal medicine research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Gastroenterology, Endocrinology, Oncology and Pathology. Bladder cancer is a subfield of Genetics that she investigates.

Her work carried out in the field of Cancer brings together such families of science as Methylation, DNA methylation, Basal cell carcinoma, Environmental exposure and Epigenetics. Her work investigates the relationship between Odds ratio and topics such as Skin cancer that intersect with problems in Immunology, Dermatology and Sunburn. Her work in Risk factor tackles topics such as Surgery which are related to areas like Epidemiology.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (26.52%)
  • Bladder cancer (20.87%)
  • Cancer (16.30%)

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

  • Physiology (11.30%)
  • Pregnancy (12.39%)
  • Cohort (8.04%)

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

Margaret R. Karagas spends much of her time researching Physiology, Pregnancy, Cohort, Internal medicine and Bladder cancer. Margaret R. Karagas interconnects Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale, Urinary system and Environmental health in the investigation of issues within Pregnancy. Her work deals with themes such as Rate ratio, Fetus, Asthma and Methylation, which intersect with Cohort.

Her Oncology research extends to the thematically linked field of Internal medicine. Her Bladder cancer study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Odds ratio, microRNA, Smoking status and Nutritional epidemiology. As part of one scientific family, Margaret R. Karagas deals mainly with the area of Odds ratio, narrowing it down to issues related to the Confidence interval, and often Logistic regression, Lung cancer and Carcinoma.

Between 2019 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Specific class of intrapartum antibiotics relates to maturation of the infant gut microbiota: a prospective cohort study. (27 citations)
  • Does Birth Mode Modify Associations of Maternal Pre-Pregnancy BMI and Gestational Weight Gain With the Infant Gut Microbiome? (15 citations)
  • Metals and trace elements in relation to body mass index in a prospective study of US women. (13 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Cancer
  • Gene

Physiology, Obesity, Prospective cohort study, Microbiome and Environmental health are her primary areas of study. Her Physiology research incorporates themes from Offspring, Methylation, Placenta, Fetus and CpG site. She has included themes like Delivery mode, Social skills, Confounding and Autism in her Microbiome study.

Her work on Tobacco smoke as part of general Environmental health research is often related to Phthalate, thus linking different fields of science. Her Confidence interval study deals with Tattoo Site intersecting with Odds ratio. Her Odds ratio study is concerned with the larger field of Internal medicine.
