Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Cancer
  • Internal medicine

Her primary areas of investigation include Breast cancer, Genome-wide association study, Internal medicine, Genetics and Oncology. Her Breast cancer research entails a greater understanding of Cancer. Her study looks at the relationship between Cancer and topics such as Germline mutation, which overlap with Pathology.

Her study in Genome-wide association study is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Genotyping, Prostate cancer and Genetic association. Her Internal medicine research integrates issues from Penetrance and Gene mutation. Her Oncology study incorporates themes from Surgery, Cohort study, Case-control study and Hazard ratio, Confidence interval.

Her most cited work include:

  • Genome-wide association study identifies novel breast cancer susceptibility loci (2045 citations)
  • Genome-wide association study identifies novel breast cancer susceptibility loci (2045 citations)
  • Common Genetic Variation In Cellular Transport Genes and Epithelial Ovarian Cancer (EOC) Risk (951 citations)

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

Melissa C. Southey mainly focuses on Breast cancer, Internal medicine, Oncology, Genetics and Cancer. Her studies in Breast cancer integrate themes in fields like Germline mutation, Genome-wide association study, Family history and Genotype. Her Genome-wide association study research focuses on Bioinformatics and how it connects with Disease.

Her research investigates the connection between Internal medicine and topics such as DNA methylation that intersect with issues in Epigenetics and Confounding. The study incorporates disciplines such as Cohort study, Ovarian cancer, Gynecology, Hazard ratio and Colorectal cancer in addition to Oncology. Her studies deal with areas such as Lung cancer and Risk factor as well as Cancer.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Breast cancer (73.33%)
  • Internal medicine (73.92%)
  • Oncology (67.02%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Internal medicine (73.92%)
  • Oncology (67.02%)
  • Breast cancer (73.33%)

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

Melissa C. Southey mostly deals with Internal medicine, Oncology, Breast cancer, DNA methylation and Cancer. Her Oncology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Prostate, Gene, Germline, Colorectal cancer and Prostate cancer. Her Breast cancer research is classified as research in Genetics.

Her biological study deals with issues like Lung cancer, which deal with fields such as Biomarkers of aging and Anthropometry. Her work in Hazard ratio tackles topics such as Single-nucleotide polymorphism which are related to areas like Ovarian cancer. The various areas that she examines in her Genome-wide association study study include Genetic variation and Genetic association.

Between 2019 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Cancer Risks Associated With Germline PALB2 Pathogenic Variants: An International Study of 524 Families (68 citations)
  • Cancer Risks Associated With Germline PALB2 Pathogenic Variants: An International Study of 524 Families (68 citations)
  • Cumulative Burden of Colorectal Cancer Associated Genetic Variants Is More Strongly Associated With Early-Onset vs Late-Onset Cancer (27 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Cancer
  • Internal medicine

Her primary areas of study are Internal medicine, Oncology, Breast cancer, Cohort study and DNA methylation. Her Cancer and Confidence interval study, which is part of a larger body of work in Internal medicine, is frequently linked to Clinical decision making, bridging the gap between disciplines. She has researched Oncology in several fields, including Germline mutation, PALB2, Colorectal cancer, Prostate cancer and Risk factor.

Her study focuses on the intersection of Prostate cancer and fields such as Disease with connections in the field of Genome-wide association study. The Breast cancer study combines topics in areas such as Odds ratio, Germline, Family history and Bioinformatics. Her Cohort study research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Body mass index, Prospective cohort study and Cohort.
