Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Law
  • Disease

Gerontology, Demography, Public health, Socioeconomic status and Internal medicine are his primary areas of study. His work deals with themes such as Epidemiology, Cohort study, Whitehall Study, Social class and Risk factor, which intersect with Gerontology. His Demography research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Coronary heart disease, Absenteeism, Cohort and Developed country.

Michael Marmot has researched Public health in several fields, including Self-rated health, Mental health and Environmental health. His Socioeconomic status research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Psychosocial, Longitudinal study, Social status and Cross-sectional study. His work investigates the relationship between Internal medicine and topics such as Type 2 diabetes that intersect with problems in Genetics.

His most cited work include:

  • Intensive blood-glucose control with sulphonylureas or insulin compared with conventional treatment and risk of complications in patients with type 2 diabetes (UKPDS 33) (14520 citations)
  • Closing the gap in a generation: health equity through action on the social determinants of health (4889 citations)
  • Food, Nutrition, Physical Activity, and the Prevention of Cancer: a Global Perspective (3650 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Gerontology, Demography, Internal medicine, Cohort study and Socioeconomic status. The Gerontology study combines topics in areas such as Body mass index, Psychosocial, Public health, Cohort and Risk factor. His Demography study incorporates themes from Odds ratio, Obesity, Epidemiology and Disease.

He has included themes like Diabetes mellitus, Endocrinology and Cardiology in his Internal medicine study. His Cohort study study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Prospective cohort study, Whitehall Study and Hazard ratio. The study incorporates disciplines such as Self-rated health, Social class and Environmental health in addition to Socioeconomic status.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Gerontology (29.19%)
  • Demography (22.85%)
  • Internal medicine (17.92%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Demography (22.85%)
  • Social determinants of health (10.09%)
  • Gerontology (29.19%)

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

Michael Marmot mainly focuses on Demography, Social determinants of health, Gerontology, Cohort study and Health equity. His work focuses on many connections between Demography and other disciplines, such as Socioeconomic status, that overlap with his field of interest in Environmental health. Social determinants of health is a subfield of Public health that Michael Marmot tackles.

His Gerontology research includes themes of Psychosocial and Longitudinal study. As part of the same scientific family, he usually focuses on Cohort study, concentrating on Cohort and intersecting with Obesity. Body mass index is the subject of his research, which falls under Internal medicine.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Social determinants of mental health (452 citations)
  • Socioeconomic status and the 25 × 25 risk factors as determinants of premature mortality: a multicohort study and meta-analysis of 1·7 million men and women (418 citations)
  • HMG-coenzyme A reductase inhibition, type 2 diabetes, and bodyweight: evidence from genetic analysis and randomised trials. (405 citations)
