Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Genetics

Marjo-Riitta Järvelin mainly focuses on Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Internal medicine and Endocrinology. His Genome-wide association study research integrates issues from Quantitative trait locus, Allele, Genetic association, Locus and Type 2 diabetes. The study incorporates disciplines such as Body mass index and Obesity in addition to Genetics.

His Single-nucleotide polymorphism research includes elements of Childhood obesity and Genetic variation. His Internal medicine study frequently links to adjacent areas such as Diabetes mellitus. As part of the same scientific family, Marjo-Riitta Järvelin usually focuses on Endocrinology, concentrating on Cohort study and intersecting with Prospective cohort study, Incidence, Vitamin D and neurology, Premature birth and Gestation.

His most cited work include:

  • A common variant in the FTO gene is associated with body mass index and predisposes to childhood and adult obesity (3415 citations)
  • A common variant in the FTO gene is associated with body mass index and predisposes to childhood and adult obesity (3415 citations)
  • Biological, clinical and population relevance of 95 loci for blood lipids (2804 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Internal medicine, Body mass index and Endocrinology. In his study, Bioinformatics is strongly linked to Genetic association, which falls under the umbrella field of Genome-wide association study. His work carried out in the field of Genetics brings together such families of science as Meta-analysis and Disease.

His research in Internal medicine intersects with topics in Diabetes mellitus, Type 2 diabetes and Oncology. Marjo-Riitta Järvelin has researched Body mass index in several fields, including Birth weight, Obesity, Cohort study, Demography and Polycystic ovary. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Odds ratio, Pregnancy, Psychiatry, Cohort and Risk factor.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genome-wide association study (40.59%)
  • Genetics (34.58%)
  • Internal medicine (35.75%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Internal medicine (35.75%)
  • Body mass index (25.45%)
  • Genome-wide association study (40.59%)

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

Marjo-Riitta Järvelin spends much of his time researching Internal medicine, Body mass index, Genome-wide association study, Demography and Genetic association. His studies deal with areas such as Endocrinology, Type 2 diabetes, Oncology and Mendelian randomization as well as Internal medicine. The Body mass index study combines topics in areas such as Birth weight, Obesity, Polycystic ovary and Obstetrics.

His Genome-wide association study study improves the overall literature in Genetics. His Demography research focuses on subjects like Young adult, which are linked to Cohort study. The various areas that Marjo-Riitta Järvelin examines in his Genetic association study include Genetic correlation, Aggression, Physiology and DNA methylation.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Maternal and fetal genetic effects on birth weight and their relevance to cardio-metabolic risk factors (129 citations)
  • New genetic signals for lung function highlight pathways and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease associations across multiple ancestries (105 citations)
  • Epigenome-wide meta-analysis of DNA methylation and childhood asthma (65 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

Marjo-Riitta Järvelin mainly investigates Internal medicine, Genome-wide association study, Pregnancy, DNA methylation and Birth weight. Marjo-Riitta Järvelin has included themes like Diabetes mellitus, Endocrinology and Oncology in his Internal medicine study. Genome-wide association study is a subfield of Genetics that he tackles.

His Pregnancy study combines topics in areas such as Physiology and Obstetrics. His DNA methylation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Epigenetics and Disease. His Birth weight research incorporates elements of Body mass index and Confounding.
