Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Genetics

Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Internal medicine and Genetic architecture are his primary areas of study. His Genome-wide association study study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Bioinformatics, Medical genetics, Disease, Allele and Genetic association. His research on Genetics frequently links to adjacent areas such as Body mass index.

Markus Perola combines subjects such as Genetic variation, Polymorphism and Haplotype with his study of Single-nucleotide polymorphism. His Internal medicine study incorporates themes from Diabetes mellitus, Endocrinology and Type 2 diabetes. The Genetic architecture study which covers Allelic heterogeneity that intersects with Common disease-common variant.

His most cited work include:

  • Biological, clinical and population relevance of 95 loci for blood lipids (2804 citations)
  • Association analyses of 249,796 individuals reveal 18 new loci associated with body mass index (2348 citations)
  • Discovery and refinement of loci associated with lipid levels (1814 citations)

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

Markus Perola mainly investigates Genetics, Internal medicine, Genome-wide association study, Endocrinology and Locus. Genetics is a component of his Genetic association, Allele, Genetic architecture, Quantitative trait locus and Gene studies. The study incorporates disciplines such as Diabetes mellitus and Cardiology in addition to Internal medicine.

Markus Perola studied Genome-wide association study and Disease that intersect with Immunology. Insulin resistance, Body mass index and Triglyceride are the primary areas of interest in his Endocrinology study. His Body mass index study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Obesity and Physiology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (63.83%)
  • Internal medicine (55.99%)
  • Genome-wide association study (60.46%)

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

  • Internal medicine (55.99%)
  • Genome-wide association study (60.46%)
  • Endocrinology (30.39%)

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

Markus Perola focuses on Internal medicine, Genome-wide association study, Endocrinology, Genetics and Type 2 diabetes. His Internal medicine study deals with Diabetes mellitus intersecting with Risk factor and Family aggregation. His Genome-wide association study research includes elements of Mendelian randomization, Disease, Genetic predisposition, Coronary artery disease and Medical genetics.

Markus Perola frequently studies issues relating to Meta-analysis and Genetics. His Type 2 diabetes research integrates issues from Prospective cohort study, Metabolic syndrome, Cohort study and Cohort. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Bioelectrical impedance analysis, Lean body mass and Single-nucleotide polymorphism.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Repurposed Antiviral Drugs for Covid-19 - Interim WHO Solidarity Trial Results. (408 citations)
  • Repurposed antiviral drugs for COVID-19: interim WHO solidarity trial results (Preprint) (121 citations)
  • Whole exome sequencing study identifies novel rare and common Alzheimer's-Associated variants involved in immune response and transcriptional regulation (93 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Genetics

His main research concerns Internal medicine, Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Disease and Type 2 diabetes. His research ties Endocrinology and Internal medicine together. His Genome-wide association study research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Pregnancy, Heart failure, Case-control study, Genetic association and Mendelian inheritance.

All of his Genetics and Allele, Medical genetics, Locus, Genetic architecture and Genotype investigations are sub-components of the entire Genetics study. His Disease research incorporates elements of Mendelian randomization, Immunology, Myocardial infarction, Biomarker and Human gut. His work carried out in the field of Type 2 diabetes brings together such families of science as Prospective cohort study, Cohort study and Cohort.
