Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Surgery
  • Endocrinology

Michael Kjaer mostly deals with Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Skeletal muscle, Anatomy and Tendon. His study explores the link between Internal medicine and topics such as Strength training that cross with problems in Cell. His work deals with themes such as Inflammation and Placebo, which intersect with Endocrinology.

His Skeletal muscle research includes elements of Precursor cell, Neural cell adhesion molecule, Myosin, Cell biology and Physiology. The various areas that he examines in his Anatomy study include Electromyography, Isometric exercise and Biomedical engineering. His Tendon study is related to the wider topic of Surgery.

His most cited work include:

  • Muscle and blood metabolites during a soccer game: implications for sprint performance. (519 citations)
  • Timing of postexercise protein intake is important for muscle hypertrophy with resistance training in elderly humans (448 citations)
  • Role of the nervous system in sarcopenia and muscle atrophy with aging: strength training as a countermeasure (415 citations)

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

Michael Kjaer spends much of his time researching Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Skeletal muscle, Tendon and Anatomy. His work in Physical exercise, Exercise physiology, Muscle hypertrophy, Resistance training and Heart rate are all subfields of Internal medicine research. His study in Insulin, Epinephrine, Muscle contraction, Sarcopenia and Microdialysis is done as part of Endocrinology.

His study in Skeletal muscle is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Inflammation, Myofibril and Myocyte, Myosin, Cell biology. His Tendon research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Extracellular matrix and Connective tissue. His studies deal with areas such as Fibril, Biomedical engineering and Isometric exercise as well as Anatomy.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (53.57%)
  • Endocrinology (47.89%)
  • Skeletal muscle (31.17%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Internal medicine (53.57%)
  • Skeletal muscle (31.17%)
  • Endocrinology (47.89%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Internal medicine, Skeletal muscle, Endocrinology, Tendon and Physical therapy. The Internal medicine study combines topics in areas such as Anti-inflammatory and Surgery. His Skeletal muscle study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Myocyte, Cell biology and Inflammation.

Michael Kjaer studied Endocrinology and Connective tissue that intersect with Marfan syndrome. Michael Kjaer combines subjects such as Extracellular matrix, Tissue homeostasis and Gene expression with his study of Tendon. His Physical therapy study which covers Randomized controlled trial that intersects with Osteoarthritis and Strength training.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Ibuprofen alters human testicular physiology to produce a state of compensated hypogonadism. (51 citations)
  • Ibuprofen alters human testicular physiology to produce a state of compensated hypogonadism. (51 citations)
  • Copenhagen Consensus statement 2019: physical activity and ageing. (48 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Surgery
  • Gene

Internal medicine, Skeletal muscle, Endocrinology, Tendon and Resistance training are his primary areas of study. The Internal medicine study which covers Surgery that intersects with Anti-inflammatory. His Skeletal muscle study combines topics in areas such as Sarcopenia and Myosin.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Single muscle, MHC class I and Connective tissue in addition to Endocrinology. His work in the fields of Achilles tendon and Tendinopathy overlaps with other areas such as Loading unloading. Michael Kjaer has included themes like Muscle hypertrophy, Isometric exercise, Muscle strength and Muscle fibre in his Resistance training study.
