Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

Olli T. Raitakari mostly deals with Internal medicine, Genome-wide association study, Endocrinology, Genetics and Body mass index. Olli T. Raitakari focuses mostly in the field of Internal medicine, narrowing it down to matters related to Cardiology and, in some cases, Diastole. His work deals with themes such as Quantitative trait locus, Genetic architecture, Genetic association and Medical genetics, which intersect with Genome-wide association study.

His work carried out in the field of Genetic association brings together such families of science as Physiology and Bioinformatics. His Endocrinology course of study focuses on Young adult and Cohort study. Olli T. Raitakari combines subjects such as Odds ratio, FTO gene and Obesity with his study of Body mass index.

His most cited work include:

  • Association analyses of 249,796 individuals reveal 18 new loci associated with body mass index (2348 citations)
  • Trends in adult body-mass index in 200 countries from 1975 to 2014: A pooled analysis of 1698 population-based measurement studies with 19.2 million participants (2278 citations)
  • Worldwide trends in body-mass index, underweight, overweight, and obesity from 1975 to 2016: a pooled analysis of 2416 population-based measurement studies in 128·9 million children, adolescents, and adults (2180 citations)

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

Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Genome-wide association study, Body mass index and Genetics are his primary areas of study. As a part of the same scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Internal medicine, focusing on Cardiology and, on occasion, Brachial artery. Many of his studies on Endocrinology involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Risk factor.

He has included themes like Allele, Genetic association, Locus and Genetic architecture in his Genome-wide association study study. His Body mass index research incorporates themes from Prospective cohort study, Obesity, Cohort study and Cohort. His Genetics research includes elements of Meta-analysis and Disease.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (54.51%)
  • Endocrinology (32.53%)
  • Genome-wide association study (28.23%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Internal medicine (54.51%)
  • Genome-wide association study (28.23%)
  • Body mass index (25.40%)

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

Olli T. Raitakari mainly focuses on Internal medicine, Genome-wide association study, Body mass index, Genetics and Blood pressure. His study focuses on the intersection of Internal medicine and fields such as Endocrinology with connections in the field of Allele. His research integrates issues of Mendelian randomization, Medical genetics, Genetic association, Locus and Heritability in his study of Genome-wide association study.

The various areas that he examines in his Body mass index study include Young adult, Logistic regression and Obesity. Olli T. Raitakari has researched Young adult in several fields, including Prospective cohort study and Intima-media thickness. His Cohort research includes themes of Relative risk and Pediatrics.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Maternal and fetal genetic effects on birth weight and their relevance to cardio-metabolic risk factors (129 citations)
  • Maternal and fetal genetic effects on birth weight and their relevance to cardio-metabolic risk factors (129 citations)
  • New genetic signals for lung function highlight pathways and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease associations across multiple ancestries (105 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Genome-wide association study, Internal medicine, Genetics, Cohort and Body mass index. His work deals with themes such as SNP, Medical genetics, Genetic association, Locus and Heritability, which intersect with Genome-wide association study. His Internal medicine research incorporates elements of Endocrinology, Type 2 diabetes, Mendelian randomization and Cardiology.

Olli T. Raitakari regularly ties together related areas like Meta-analysis in his Genetics studies. His Cohort study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Disease, Cohort study and Oncology. Olli T. Raitakari interconnects Young adult, Logistic regression and Obesity in the investigation of issues within Body mass index.
