Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Cancer
  • Internal medicine
  • Gene

Her primary areas of investigation include Pathology, Cancer, Cancer research, Internal medicine and Germline mutation. Her Pathology research includes elements of Kidney, Birt–Hogg–Dubé syndrome and Mammary gland. Her Cancer research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Paraganglioma, Magnetic resonance imaging, Immunology and Hereditary leiomyomatosis and renal cell carcinoma.

Maria J. Merino combines subjects such as Multiparametric Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Biopsy with her study of Magnetic resonance imaging. Her Cancer research study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Gene expression, DNA methylation, Carcinogenesis, microRNA and Gene. Her Internal medicine research includes themes of Endocrinology, Oncology and Cytology.

Her most cited work include:

  • Effects of Estrogen or Estrogen/ Progestin Regimens on Heart Disease Risk Factors in Postmenopausal Women: The Postmenopausal Estrogen/Progestin Interventions (PEPI) Trial (2087 citations)
  • Comprehensivemolecular characterization of clear cell renal cell carcinoma (2060 citations)
  • The Molecular Taxonomy of Primary Prostate Cancer (1596 citations)

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

Maria J. Merino mainly investigates Pathology, Internal medicine, Prostate cancer, Cancer and Radiology. Her research in Pathology intersects with topics in Kidney and Loss of heterozygosity. Maria J. Merino has researched Internal medicine in several fields, including Gastroenterology, Endocrinology and Oncology.

Her Prostate cancer research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Magnetic resonance imaging, Biopsy and Prostate. Her Cancer study combines topics in areas such as Cancer research and Hereditary leiomyomatosis and renal cell carcinoma. Her studies deal with areas such as Mutation and Tumor suppressor gene as well as Cancer research.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Pathology (39.95%)
  • Internal medicine (23.33%)
  • Prostate cancer (20.60%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Prostate cancer (20.60%)
  • Prostate (14.89%)
  • Internal medicine (23.33%)

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

Her main research concerns Prostate cancer, Prostate, Internal medicine, Radiology and Magnetic resonance imaging. Her Prostate cancer study is associated with Cancer. The study incorporates disciplines such as Lesion and Oncology in addition to Internal medicine.

Her Magnetic resonance imaging study which covers Multiparametric Magnetic Resonance Imaging that intersects with Watchful waiting and Prostate-specific antigen. Her research on Biopsy concerns the broader Pathology. In the field of Pathology, her study on Neuroendocrine tumors overlaps with subjects such as In patient.

Between 2016 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • What Are We Missing? False-Negative Cancers at Multiparametric MR Imaging of the Prostate (103 citations)
  • Activity of durvalumab plus olaparib in metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer in men with and without DNA damage repair mutations (97 citations)
  • Prospective Evaluation of PI-RADS™ Version 2 Using the International Society of Urological Pathology Prostate Cancer Grade Group System (94 citations)

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

  • Cancer
  • Internal medicine
  • Gene

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Prostate cancer, Prostate, Magnetic resonance imaging, Radiology and Biopsy. Her studies in Prostate cancer integrate themes in fields like Toxicity, Circulating tumor cell and Urology. Her PI-RADS and Multiparametric MRI study in the realm of Prostate connects with subjects such as Image quality.

Her work deals with themes such as Effective diffusion coefficient and Pathology, which intersect with PI-RADS. Her study in Pathology focuses on Immunohistochemistry in particular. The various areas that Maria J. Merino examines in her Biopsy study include Multiparametric Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Prostate biopsy, Retrospective cohort study and Image-Guided Biopsy.
