Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Biochemistry
  • Disease

Her primary areas of study are Pediatrics, Docosahexaenoic acid, Pregnancy, Randomized controlled trial and Breast feeding. Her study in Pediatrics is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Birth weight, Gestational age, Relative risk, Confidence interval and Low birth weight. Her research in Docosahexaenoic acid intersects with topics in Internal medicine, Breast milk and Endocrinology.

Her study looks at the intersection of Pregnancy and topics like Meta-analysis with Clinical trial, Omega 3 fatty acid, Incidence, Intensive care and Small for gestational age. Her Randomized controlled trial research includes elements of Observational study, Gynecology and Prenatal care. She usually deals with Breast feeding and limits it to topics linked to Infant formula and Visual acuity and Perinatal period.

Her most cited work include:

  • Fatty acid composition of brain, retina, and erythrocytes in breast- and formula-fed infants. (702 citations)
  • Are long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids essential nutrients in infancy? (465 citations)
  • Effect of DHA supplementation during pregnancy on maternal depression and neurodevelopment of young children: a randomized controlled trial. (405 citations)

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

Her primary areas of investigation include Pediatrics, Pregnancy, Randomized controlled trial, Docosahexaenoic acid and Polyunsaturated fatty acid. Her Pediatrics research includes themes of Birth weight, Clinical trial and Gestational age. As part of one scientific family, she deals mainly with the area of Pregnancy, narrowing it down to issues related to the Internal medicine, and often Gastroenterology.

Her Randomized controlled trial study combines topics in areas such as Incidence, Premature birth, Relative risk, Immunology and Prenatal care. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Placebo, Breast milk and Linoleic acid. The various areas that Maria Makrides examines in her Polyunsaturated fatty acid study include Endocrinology and Physiology.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Pediatrics (54.40%)
  • Pregnancy (43.68%)
  • Randomized controlled trial (38.19%)

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

  • Pregnancy (43.68%)
  • Randomized controlled trial (38.19%)
  • Pediatrics (54.40%)

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

Her main research concerns Pregnancy, Randomized controlled trial, Pediatrics, Gestation and Polyunsaturated fatty acid. Maria Makrides interconnects Docosahexaenoic acid, Omega 3 fatty acid, Obstetrics, Prospective cohort study and Physiology in the investigation of issues within Pregnancy. Her Randomized controlled trial research is classified as research in Internal medicine.

Her Internal medicine research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Gastroenterology and Endocrinology. Her studies deal with areas such as Asthma, Incidence, Corrected Age and Enteral administration as well as Pediatrics. Her Polyunsaturated fatty acid study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Whole blood and Breast milk.

Between 2016 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Omega‐3 fatty acid addition during pregnancy (100 citations)
  • Omega‐3 fatty acid addition during pregnancy (100 citations)
  • Randomized controlled trial of early regular egg intake to prevent egg allergy (92 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Biochemistry

Maria Makrides mainly investigates Pregnancy, Pediatrics, Randomized controlled trial, Gestational age and Gestation. Her research integrates issues of Intervention, Malnutrition and Psychosocial in her study of Pregnancy. The study incorporates disciplines such as Clinical trial, Postpartum depression, Meta-analysis, Low birth weight and Vitamin D and neurology in addition to Pediatrics.

Her Randomized controlled trial study incorporates themes from Premature birth, Relative risk, Polyunsaturated fatty acid, Allergy and Physiology. Her work in Gestational age tackles topics such as Obstetrics which are related to areas like Breast milk, Infant feeding, Interquartile range, Lower risk and Fortification. Her studies in Gestation integrate themes in fields like Bronchopulmonary dysplasia, Incidence and Docosahexaenoic acid.
