2009 - Member of Academia Europaea

Fellow of The Academy of Medical Sciences, United Kingdom

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Diabetes mellitus

His primary scientific interests are in Cohort study, Gerontology, Demography, Internal medicine and Risk factor. His Cohort study study incorporates themes from Epidemiology, Public health, Hazard ratio, Prospective cohort study and Cohort. His Gerontology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Odds ratio, Body mass index, Confidence interval, Job strain and Socioeconomic status.

His studies deal with areas such as Global health, Life expectancy, Sick leave and Absenteeism as well as Demography. The various areas that Mika Kivimäki examines in his Internal medicine study include Diabetes mellitus, Endocrinology, Type 2 diabetes and Genome-wide association study. The Risk factor study combines topics in areas such as Relative risk and Myocardial infarction.

His most cited work include:

  • Global, regional, and national incidence, prevalence, and years lived with disability for 354 diseases and injuries for 195 countries and territories, 1990-2017: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2017 (2508 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national incidence, prevalence, and years lived with disability for 328 diseases and injuries for 195 countries, 1990–2016: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2016 (2465 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national age-sex specific mortality for 264 causes of death, 1980–2016: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2016 (2443 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Cohort study, Gerontology, Demography, Internal medicine and Prospective cohort study. Mika Kivimäki has researched Cohort study in several fields, including Epidemiology, Psychiatry, Hazard ratio, Cohort and Risk factor. The concepts of his Gerontology study are interwoven with issues in Body mass index, Odds ratio, Obesity, Job strain and Public health.

His Demography research incorporates themes from Confidence interval, Life expectancy, Occupational safety and health, Social support and Socioeconomic status. His Internal medicine research includes themes of Diabetes mellitus, Endocrinology, Type 2 diabetes and Cardiology. His study in Prospective cohort study is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Physical therapy and Depression.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cohort study (52.68%)
  • Gerontology (45.90%)
  • Demography (38.77%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Cohort study (52.68%)
  • Demography (38.77%)
  • Internal medicine (29.14%)

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

Mika Kivimäki focuses on Cohort study, Demography, Internal medicine, Prospective cohort study and Hazard ratio. His research in Cohort study intersects with topics in Body mass index, Obesity, Relative risk, Disease and Risk factor. His Demography research incorporates elements of Marital status, Confidence interval, Life expectancy, Socioeconomic status and Cohort.

His Internal medicine study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Diabetes mellitus and Cardiology. His Prospective cohort study research includes elements of Mental health, Incidence and Depression. His research in Dementia focuses on subjects like Gerontology, which are connected to Job strain.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Global, regional, and national incidence, prevalence, and years lived with disability for 354 diseases and injuries for 195 countries and territories, 1990-2017: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2017 (2508 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national age-sex-specific mortality for 282 causes of death in 195 countries and territories, 1980-2017: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2017 (1735 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national comparative risk assessment of 84 behavioural, environmental and occupational, and metabolic risks or clusters of risks for 195 countries and territories, 1990–2017 : a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2017 (1257 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Diabetes mellitus

Mika Kivimäki mainly focuses on Cohort study, Demography, Risk factor, Disease and Cohort. Mika Kivimäki interconnects Body mass index, Obesity, Dementia, Hazard ratio and Prospective cohort study in the investigation of issues within Cohort study. Mika Kivimäki focuses mostly in the field of Body mass index, narrowing it down to matters related to Gerontology and, in some cases, Weight loss and Biomedical sciences.

His Demography study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Global health, Life expectancy, Years of potential life lost and Confidence interval. His research in Risk factor intersects with topics in Meta-analysis, Relative risk and Job strain. His work in Cohort addresses subjects such as Longitudinal study, which are connected to disciplines such as Odds ratio.
