Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Law

His main research concerns Global health, Environmental health, Immunology, Neglected tropical diseases and Hookworm vaccine. The study incorporates disciplines such as Epidemiology, Mortality rate, Disease, Cause of death and Life expectancy in addition to Global health. His Mortality rate study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Years of potential life lost, Child mortality and Compensation law of mortality.

His Cause of death research includes themes of Incidence and Pediatrics. His study in Immunology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Ethnology and Public health. His Neglected tropical diseases research incorporates elements of Tropical disease, Malaria, Trachoma, Poverty and Lymphatic filariasis.

His most cited work include:

  • Global and regional mortality from 235 causes of death for 20 age groups in 1990 and 2010: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2010 (8830 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national incidence, prevalence, and years lived with disability for 301 acute and chronic diseases and injuries in 188 countries, 1990-2013: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2013 (6156 citations)
  • Disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) for 291 diseases and injuries in 21 regions, 1990-2010: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2010 (5887 citations)

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

Peter J. Hotez spends much of his time researching Neglected tropical diseases, Immunology, Global health, Environmental health and Virology. His Neglected tropical diseases study combines topics in areas such as Economic growth, Poverty, Malaria and Tropical disease. He interconnects Epidemiology, International health, Health policy, Tropical medicine and Disease burden in the investigation of issues within Global health.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Trachoma, Veterinary medicine, Disease, Schistosomiasis and Lymphatic filariasis. Within one scientific family, he focuses on topics pertaining to Hookworm vaccine under Virology, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Ancylostoma caninum and Ancylostoma. His work carried out in the field of Hookworm infection brings together such families of science as Necator americanus and Hookworm Infections.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neglected tropical diseases (44.95%)
  • Immunology (27.64%)
  • Global health (29.21%)

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

  • Neglected tropical diseases (44.95%)
  • Coronavirus disease 2019 (3.97%)
  • Public health (16.47%)

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

His primary areas of study are Neglected tropical diseases, Coronavirus disease 2019, Public health, Global health and Environmental health. His Neglected tropical diseases research incorporates themes from Tropical disease, Malaria, Schistosomiasis, China and Mass drug administration. His Public health research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Economic growth, Measles, Vaccination, Transmission and Humanitarian crisis.

Key is closely connected to Health economics in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Global health. His Environmental health study also includes

  • Hookworm infection, which have a strong connection to Anemia,
  • Epidemiology that intertwine with fields like Toxocariasis. As part of one scientific family, Peter J. Hotez deals mainly with the area of Schistosomiasis vaccine, narrowing it down to issues related to the Intensive care medicine, and often Disease.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Vaccine Efficacy Needed for a COVID-19 Coronavirus Vaccine to Prevent or Stop an Epidemic as the Sole Intervention. (62 citations)
  • Venezuela's humanitarian crisis, resurgence of vector-borne diseases, and implications for spillover in the region (61 citations)
  • Prospects for a safe COVID-19 vaccine. (60 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Law

His scientific interests lie mostly in Global health, Neglected tropical diseases, Public health, Vaccination and Virology. His Global health study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Epidemiology, Environmental health, Meta-analysis, Helminth infections and Seroprevalence. His Neglected tropical diseases research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Mass drug administration, Schistosomiasis and Intensive care medicine.

His Public health research includes elements of Measles, Toxocara infection, Transmission, Humanitarian crisis and Socioeconomics. In his work, Incidence is strongly intertwined with Zika virus, which is a subfield of Socioeconomics. His studies deal with areas such as Antibody, Recombinant DNA and Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 as well as Virology.
