Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Gene

His primary scientific interests are in Internal medicine, Genome-wide association study, Gerontology, Body mass index and Genetics. His Internal medicine research includes themes of Diabetes mellitus, Endocrinology and Type 2 diabetes. His Genome-wide association study study also includes fields such as

  • Genetic association which connect with Blood pressure,
  • Bioinformatics together with DNA methylation, Stroke and Epigenetics.

His study in Gerontology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Epidemiology, Demography, Global health, Prospective cohort study and Risk factor. His Prospective cohort study research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Relative risk and Cohort. Oscar H. Franco has included themes like Obesity and Cause of death in his Body mass index study.

His most cited work include:

  • 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)
  • Worldwide trends in diabetes since 1980: a pooled analysis of 751 population-based studies with 4.4 million participants (1737 citations)

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

His main research concerns Internal medicine, Rotterdam Study, Endocrinology, Prospective cohort study and Body mass index. His research investigates the connection between Internal medicine and topics such as Cardiology that intersect with problems in Blood pressure. His biological study deals with issues like Gerontology, which deal with fields such as Life expectancy.

In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Prospective cohort study, Relative risk is strongly linked to Meta-analysis. The study incorporates disciplines such as Demography and Obesity in addition to Body mass index. His Disease research extends to the thematically linked field of Epidemiology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (52.32%)
  • Rotterdam Study (29.87%)
  • Endocrinology (21.01%)

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

  • Internal medicine (52.32%)
  • Type 2 diabetes (12.05%)
  • Rotterdam Study (29.87%)

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

Oscar H. Franco mainly investigates Internal medicine, Type 2 diabetes, Rotterdam Study, Diabetes mellitus and Disease. The concepts of his Internal medicine study are interwoven with issues in Endocrinology and Cardiology. His work carried out in the field of Rotterdam Study brings together such families of science as Body mass index, Demography, Proportional hazards model and Confounding.

His Diabetes mellitus study which covers Insulin that intersects with Genetics. His Disease research includes elements of Health care and Public health. The Prospective cohort study study combines topics in areas such as Meta-analysis, Incidence and Cohort.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Dynamic interventions to control COVID-19 pandemic: a multivariate prediction modelling study comparing 16 worldwide countries. (87 citations)
  • COVID-19: The forgotten priorities of the pandemic. (74 citations)
  • A catalog of genetic loci associated with kidney function from analyses of a million individuals (52 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Gene

Oscar H. Franco spends much of his time researching Internal medicine, Type 2 diabetes, Diabetes mellitus, Rotterdam Study and Body mass index. His research is interdisciplinary, bridging the disciplines of Endocrinology and Internal medicine. Oscar H. Franco combines subjects such as Genetics, Lower risk, Androgen deficiency, Retrospective cohort study and Sex hormone-binding globulin with his study of Type 2 diabetes.

His Diabetes mellitus study combines topics in areas such as Odds ratio, Mendelian randomization, Insulin and DNA methylation. His Rotterdam Study research is under the purview of Epidemiology. His Body mass index research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Longitudinal study, Demography, Obesity and Disease.
