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:

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Genetics

Nilesh J. Samani mainly focuses on Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Internal medicine and Genetic association. His work carried out in the field of Genome-wide association study brings together such families of science as Bioinformatics, Coronary artery disease, Disease, Allele and Genetic architecture. As part of his studies on Genetics, Nilesh J. Samani often connects relevant areas like Body mass index.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Allele frequency and Copy-number variation. His Internal medicine research incorporates elements of Endocrinology and Cardiology. His study explores the link between Genetic association and topics such as Blood pressure that cross with problems in Framingham Risk Score.

His most cited work include:

  • Genome-wide association study of 14,000 cases of seven common diseases and 3,000 shared controls (7922 citations)
  • Biological, clinical and population relevance of 95 loci for blood lipids (2804 citations)
  • Association analyses of 249,796 individuals reveal 18 new loci associated with body mass index (2348 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Internal medicine, Genetics, Genome-wide association study, Cardiology and Single-nucleotide polymorphism. His Internal medicine study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as Endocrinology. His Genome-wide association study research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Genetic predisposition, Bioinformatics, Allele frequency, Genetic association and Genetic architecture.

His study in the field of Ejection fraction, Atrial fibrillation and Sudden cardiac death also crosses realms of In patient. His Single-nucleotide polymorphism study incorporates themes from Odds ratio and Haplotype. Nilesh J. Samani combines subjects such as Case-control study and Disease with his study of Coronary artery disease.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (59.05%)
  • Genetics (49.62%)
  • Genome-wide association study (43.71%)

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

  • Internal medicine (59.05%)
  • Genome-wide association study (43.71%)
  • Genetics (49.62%)

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

Nilesh J. Samani mainly investigates Internal medicine, Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Heart failure and Cardiology. Internal medicine is frequently linked to Endocrinology in his study. The study incorporates disciplines such as Genetic predisposition, PR interval, Medical genetics, Genetic association and Genetic architecture in addition to Genome-wide association study.

His research investigates the connection between Medical genetics and topics such as Blood pressure that intersect with problems in Diabetes mellitus. Gene, Locus, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Minor allele frequency and SNP are the core of his Genetics study. He has included themes like Biomarker and Gastroenterology in his Heart failure study.

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)
  • Novel genetic associations for blood pressure identified via gene-alcohol interaction in up to 570K individuals across multiple ancestries (799 citations)
  • Genetic analysis of over 1 million people identifies 535 new loci associated with blood pressure traits. (284 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Genetics

His primary areas of study are Genome-wide association study, Internal medicine, Genetics, Heart failure and Genetic association. His Genome-wide association study study improves the overall literature in Single-nucleotide polymorphism. His study focuses on the intersection of Internal medicine and fields such as Cardiology with connections in the field of Pathophysiology.

His Genetics research includes themes of Blood lipids and Lipid metabolism. His Heart failure study combines topics in areas such as Biomarker, Atrial fibrillation, ACE inhibitor and Cohort. His Genetic association study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Quantitative trait locus, Minor allele frequency and Biobank, Bioinformatics.
