1971 - Fellow of John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Mutation
  • Internal medicine

Genetics, Genome-wide association study, Parkinson's disease, Pathology and Single-nucleotide polymorphism are his primary areas of study. His Genetics research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Parkin and Age of onset. Nicholas W. Wood has included themes like Odds ratio, Immunology, LRRK2, Meta-analysis and Imputation in his Genome-wide association study study.

Parkinson's disease is a subfield of Disease that Nicholas W. Wood explores. His Pathology study combines topics in areas such as Internal medicine and Central nervous system disease. His work carried out in the field of Single-nucleotide polymorphism brings together such families of science as Genetic variation and Human genome.

His most cited work include:

  • Hereditary Early-Onset Parkinson's Disease Caused by Mutations in PINK1 (2554 citations)
  • Genetic risk and a primary role for cell-mediated immune mechanisms in multiple sclerosis (1970 citations)
  • Second consensus statement on the diagnosis of multiple system atrophy (1886 citations)

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

Nicholas W. Wood spends much of his time researching Genetics, Parkinson's disease, Pathology, Disease and Internal medicine. Gene, Locus, Genome-wide association study, Haplotype and Single-nucleotide polymorphism are the core of his Genetics study. Many of his studies involve connections with topics such as Genetic association and Genome-wide association study.

Nicholas W. Wood has included themes like Neuroscience and Age of onset in his Parkinson's disease study. In most of his Disease studies, his work intersects topics such as Bioinformatics. His Internal medicine study combines topics in areas such as Endocrinology and Oncology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (42.36%)
  • Parkinson's disease (18.46%)
  • Pathology (16.20%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Genetics (42.36%)
  • Disease (15.01%)
  • Parkinson's disease (18.46%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Genetics, Disease, Parkinson's disease, Internal medicine and Genome-wide association study. Many of his studies on Genetics involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Ataxia. Nicholas W. Wood has researched Disease in several fields, including Clinical trial, Cognition, Immunology and Cohort.

As part of one scientific family, he deals mainly with the area of Parkinson's disease, narrowing it down to issues related to the Glucocerebrosidase, and often Dementia. His study in Internal medicine is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Physical therapy and Oncology. His research in Genome-wide association study intersects with topics in Bipolar disorder, Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Genetic association and Candidate gene.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Analysis of shared heritability in common disorders of the brain (726 citations)
  • Identification of novel risk loci, causal insights, and heritable risk for Parkinson's disease: a meta-analysis of genome-wide association studies (353 citations)
  • Genomic Dissection of Bipolar Disorder and Schizophrenia, Including 28 Subphenotypes (328 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Mutation
  • Internal medicine

Nicholas W. Wood mostly deals with Genetics, Genome-wide association study, Disease, Internal medicine and Parkinson's disease. He regularly links together related areas like Bioinformatics in his Genetics studies. The study incorporates disciplines such as Bipolar disorder, Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Genetic association and Locus in addition to Genome-wide association study.

The Locus study which covers Multiple comparisons problem that intersects with Atrophy. His work is dedicated to discovering how Disease, Immunology are connected with Haploinsufficiency and Infectious disease and other disciplines. His Parkinson's disease research incorporates themes from Glucocerebrosidase, Prospective cohort study, Cohort study and Mendelian inheritance.
