Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Diabetes mellitus

His primary areas of study are Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Internal medicine, Type 2 diabetes and Genetic association. His study in Genome-wide association study is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both FTO gene, Allele, Polymorphism, Bioinformatics and Meta-analysis. His study in Body mass index extends to Genetics with its themes.

His Internal medicine research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Diabetes mellitus, Endocrinology and Gastroenterology. As a member of one scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Type 2 diabetes, focusing on Cholesterol and, on occasion, Mendelian randomization. As part of the same scientific family, Paul W. Franks usually focuses on Genetic association, concentrating on Coronary artery disease and intersecting with Heart disease and Pathology.

His most cited work include:

  • Discovery and refinement of loci associated with lipid levels (1814 citations)
  • Discovery and refinement of loci associated with lipid levels (1814 citations)
  • Discovery and refinement of loci associated with lipid levels (1814 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Internal medicine, Type 2 diabetes, Diabetes mellitus, Endocrinology and Genetics. Many of his studies on Internal medicine apply to Allele as well. His Type 2 diabetes research incorporates elements of Incidence, Cohort study, Gerontology, Case-control study and Disease.

His work in Diabetes mellitus addresses subjects such as Prospective cohort study, which are connected to disciplines such as Hazard ratio. His study in Genetics concentrates on Genome-wide association study, Medical genetics, Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Gene. His Genome-wide association study study combines topics in areas such as Bioinformatics, Genetic epidemiology, Quantitative trait locus, Genetic architecture and Genetic association.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (70.25%)
  • Type 2 diabetes (60.12%)
  • Diabetes mellitus (63.75%)

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

  • Type 2 diabetes (60.12%)
  • Diabetes mellitus (63.75%)
  • Internal medicine (70.25%)

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

Paul W. Franks focuses on Type 2 diabetes, Diabetes mellitus, Internal medicine, Disease and Genome-wide association study. His Type 2 diabetes research incorporates themes from European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition, Cohort study, Cohort and Confidence interval. His studies in Diabetes mellitus integrate themes in fields like Coronary artery disease, Patient stratification and Insulin.

The concepts of his Internal medicine study are interwoven with issues in Endocrinology and Allele. His Genome-wide association study study is associated with Genetics. He has included themes like Meta-analysis and Pulse pressure, Blood pressure in his Genetics study.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Risk of COVID-19 among front-line health-care workers and the general community: a prospective cohort study. (394 citations)
  • Attributes and predictors of Long-COVID: analysis of COVID cases and their symptoms collected by the Covid Symptoms Study App (62 citations)
  • Attributes and predictors of Long-COVID: analysis of COVID cases and their symptoms collected by the Covid Symptoms Study App (62 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Diabetes mellitus

Genome-wide association study, Diabetes mellitus, Medical genetics, Disease and Genetics are his primary areas of study. His Diabetes mellitus study combines topics in areas such as Human biology, Internal medicine and Precision medicine. His Internal medicine research incorporates elements of Endocrinology and Type 2 diabetes.

His research in Medical genetics intersects with topics in Genomics, Mendelian randomization, Mendelian Randomization Analysis and Heritability. His Disease research includes elements of Postprandial, Pediatrics and Physiology. His studies deal with areas such as Meta-analysis, Blood lipids, Cholesterol and Lipid metabolism as well as Genetics.
