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
  • Gene
  • Diabetes mellitus

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Internal medicine, Genome-wide association study, Endocrinology, Genetics and Body mass index. The concepts of his Internal medicine study are interwoven with issues in Diabetes mellitus and Type 2 diabetes. His Genome-wide association study research includes themes of Quantitative trait locus, Genetic architecture, Allele, Genetic association and Locus.

His Endocrinology study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as Case-control study. The Body mass index study combines topics in areas such as Demography, Obesity and FTO gene. In his research on the topic of Prospective cohort study, Cohort is strongly related with Cohort study.

His most cited work include:

  • A common variant in the FTO gene is associated with body mass index and predisposes to childhood and adult obesity (3415 citations)
  • Biological, clinical and population relevance of 95 loci for blood lipids (2804 citations)
  • Congenital leptin deficiency is associated with severe early-onset obesity in humans (2438 citations)

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

Nicholas J. Wareham mostly deals with Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Prospective cohort study, Body mass index and Cohort. His Internal medicine research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Diabetes mellitus, Type 2 diabetes and Oncology. The Type 2 diabetes study combines topics in areas such as Genetics, Genome-wide association study and Incidence.

His studies deal with areas such as Odds ratio, Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Risk factor as well as Endocrinology. His Prospective cohort study research incorporates elements of Case-control study, Epidemiology, Proportional hazards model and Hazard ratio. Nicholas J. Wareham has researched Body mass index in several fields, including Demography, Anthropometry and Obesity.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (47.29%)
  • Endocrinology (25.25%)
  • Prospective cohort study (20.99%)

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

  • Internal medicine (47.29%)
  • Genome-wide association study (16.15%)
  • Type 2 diabetes (15.39%)

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

Nicholas J. Wareham focuses on Internal medicine, Genome-wide association study, Type 2 diabetes, Cohort and Prospective cohort study. He works mostly in the field of Internal medicine, limiting it down to concerns involving Endocrinology and, occasionally, Allele. Genetics and Single-nucleotide polymorphism are the focus of his Genome-wide association study studies.

His Type 2 diabetes research is under the purview of Diabetes mellitus. His Cohort study combines topics in areas such as Body mass index and Demography. His work is dedicated to discovering how Prospective cohort study, Cohort study are connected with Proportional hazards model, Epidemiology and Environmental health and other disciplines.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Novel genetic associations for blood pressure identified via gene-alcohol interaction in up to 570K individuals across multiple ancestries (799 citations)
  • Gene discovery and polygenic prediction from a genome-wide association study of educational attainment in 1.1 million individuals (770 citations)
  • Fine-mapping type 2 diabetes loci to single-variant resolution using high-density imputation and islet-specific epigenome maps. (503 citations)
