Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Genetics

Mark I. McCarthy spends much of his time researching Genetics, Genome-wide association study, Genetic association, Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Type 2 diabetes. Genetics is closely attributed to Body mass index in his study. His studies deal with areas such as Obesity, Bioinformatics, Case-control study, Allele and Genetic architecture as well as Genome-wide association study.

His Genetic association research incorporates elements of Common disease-common variant, Birth weight, FTO gene, Disease and Heritability. Mark I. McCarthy combines subjects such as Childhood obesity and Medical genetics with his study of Single-nucleotide polymorphism. His research integrates issues of Internal medicine, TCF7L2 and Epigenome in his study of Type 2 diabetes.

His most cited work include:

  • Genome-wide association study of 14,000 cases of seven common diseases and 3,000 shared controls (7922 citations)
  • Analysis of protein-coding genetic variation in 60,706 humans (6694 citations)
  • Analysis of protein-coding genetic variation in 60,706 humans (6694 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Genetics, Genome-wide association study, Type 2 diabetes, Internal medicine and Endocrinology. Genetics is represented through his Genetic association, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Gene, Quantitative trait locus and Allele research. His Genome-wide association study research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Bioinformatics, Computational biology, Locus, Genetic variation and Genetic architecture.

His Type 2 diabetes study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Odds ratio, TCF7L2, Disease and Case-control study. His work is connected to Insulin, Obesity, Body mass index, Insulin resistance and Polycystic ovary, as a part of Internal medicine. His research in Endocrinology is mostly concerned with Glucose homeostasis.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (72.54%)
  • Genome-wide association study (60.64%)
  • Type 2 diabetes (48.42%)

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

  • Genome-wide association study (60.64%)
  • Type 2 diabetes (48.42%)
  • Diabetes mellitus (31.83%)

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

Mark I. McCarthy mainly focuses on Genome-wide association study, Type 2 diabetes, Diabetes mellitus, Internal medicine and Genetics. His Genome-wide association study research is within the category of Gene. His Type 2 diabetes research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Odds ratio, Mendelian randomization, Bioinformatics, Disease and Cohort.

The Diabetes mellitus study combines topics in areas such as Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Genetic predisposition. The concepts of his Internal medicine study are interwoven with issues in Endocrinology, Oncology and Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus. Genetics and Islet are commonly linked in his work.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Fine-mapping type 2 diabetes loci to single-variant resolution using high-density imputation and islet-specific epigenome maps. (503 citations)
  • Genomic Dissection of Bipolar Disorder and Schizophrenia, Including 28 Subphenotypes (328 citations)
  • Exploring the phenotypic consequences of tissue specific gene expression variation inferred from GWAS summary statistics. (320 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Disease

His main research concerns Genome-wide association study, Diabetes mellitus, Type 2 diabetes, Internal medicine and Genetics. His Genome-wide association study research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Quantitative trait locus, Genetic architecture, Allele, Genetic association and Computational biology. His Genetic association study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Body mass index and Demography.

Mark I. McCarthy has researched Type 2 diabetes in several fields, including Odds ratio, Case-control study and Disease. His studies in Internal medicine integrate themes in fields like Diabetic retinopathy, Endocrinology, Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Oncology. As part of his studies on Genetics, Mark I. McCarthy often connects relevant areas like Islet.
