Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Cancer

His primary areas of study are Demography, Cohort, Cohort study, Risk factor and Gerontology. His Demography study combines topics in areas such as Twin study, Odds ratio, Zygosity, Concordance and Public health. His study in Cohort is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Psychiatry, Dizygotic twin, Confidence interval, Heritability and Pediatrics.

His work deals with themes such as Prospective cohort study, Obesity and Hazard ratio, which intersect with Cohort study. His Risk factor study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Cancer, Breast cancer, Epidemiology, Relative risk and Atopy. His Gerontology study incorporates themes from Life satisfaction, Sleep in non-human animals, Socioeconomic status and Job strain.

His most cited work include:

  • Environmental and Heritable Factors in the Causation of Cancer — Analyses of Cohorts of Twins from Sweden, Denmark, and Finland (3206 citations)
  • Environmental and Heritable Factors in the Causation of Cancer — Analyses of Cohorts of Twins from Sweden, Denmark, and Finland (3206 citations)
  • Characterizing the quantitative genetic contribution to rheumatoid arthritis using data from twins (907 citations)

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

Markku Koskenvuo mainly focuses on Demography, Cohort, Cohort study, Gerontology and Twin study. The concepts of his Demography study are interwoven with issues in Odds ratio, Zygosity, Population study and Relative risk, Confidence interval. Markku Koskenvuo interconnects Genetic model, Psychiatry, Dizygotic twin and Pediatrics in the investigation of issues within Cohort.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Body mass index, Epidemiology, Hazard ratio, Prospective cohort study and Risk factor. His work in Risk factor is not limited to one particular discipline; it also encompasses Surgery. The Twin study study combines topics in areas such as Developmental psychology and Concordance.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Demography (32.70%)
  • Cohort (28.71%)
  • Cohort study (24.71%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2019)?

  • Cohort study (24.71%)
  • Demography (32.70%)
  • Gerontology (16.35%)

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

Markku Koskenvuo mainly focuses on Cohort study, Demography, Gerontology, Cohort and Prospective cohort study. His Cohort study research incorporates themes from Obesity, Job strain, Social support, Depression and Risk factor. His research integrates issues of Twin study, Body mass index and Hazard ratio, Relative risk, Confidence interval in his study of Demography.

His research in Twin study intersects with topics in Developmental psychology and Weight gain. His study looks at the relationship between Cohort and fields such as Population study, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. His Prospective cohort study research integrates issues from Young adult, Breast cancer, Prostate cancer, Pediatrics and Confounding.

Between 2012 and 2019, his most popular works were:

  • Genetic studies of body mass index yield new insights for obesity biology (781 citations)
  • Familial Risk and Heritability of Cancer Among Twins in Nordic Countries. (312 citations)
  • Long working hours and risk of coronary heart disease and stroke : a systematic review and meta-analysis of published and unpublished data for 603 838 individuals (312 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Cancer

Markku Koskenvuo mostly deals with Cohort study, Demography, Gerontology, Job strain and Risk factor. The study incorporates disciplines such as Obesity, Cohort, Relative risk, Prospective cohort study and Depression in addition to Cohort study. In his study, Prostate cancer is strongly linked to Breast cancer, which falls under the umbrella field of Prospective cohort study.

His Demography research includes themes of Cross-sectional study, Socioeconomic status and Proportional hazards model. His work in Proportional hazards model addresses issues such as Consistency, which are connected to fields such as Twin study. His Risk factor study is concerned with Internal medicine in general.
