Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Cancer

Peter Kraft spends much of his time researching Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Internal medicine and Genetic association. Peter Kraft combines subjects such as Cancer, Breast cancer, Case-control study and Bioinformatics with his study of Genome-wide association study. The Single-nucleotide polymorphism study combines topics in areas such as Genotyping, Disease and Polymorphism.

His research in Internal medicine intersects with topics in Endocrinology and Oncology. His Oncology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Relative risk, Epidemiology and Prostate cancer. His work investigates the relationship between Genetic association and topics such as Menopause that intersect with problems in Premature ovarian failure and Mutation.

His most cited work include:

  • Association analyses of 249,796 individuals reveal 18 new loci associated with body mass index (2348 citations)
  • A genome-wide association search for type 2 diabetes genes in African Americans. (1727 citations)
  • Hundreds of variants clustered in genomic loci and biological pathways affect human height (1614 citations)

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

Genome-wide association study, Internal medicine, Genetics, Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Oncology are his primary areas of study. His work in Genome-wide association study addresses issues such as Genetic association, which are connected to fields such as Computational biology and Expression quantitative trait loci. His is involved in several facets of Internal medicine study, as is seen by his studies on Breast cancer, Cancer, Prostate cancer, Case-control study and Odds ratio.

His research on Genetics frequently links to adjacent areas such as Meta-analysis. His Single-nucleotide polymorphism study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Endocrinology, Genotyping and Haplotype. His work is dedicated to discovering how Oncology, Cohort are connected with Cohort study and other disciplines.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genome-wide association study (45.14%)
  • Internal medicine (41.90%)
  • Genetics (33.15%)

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

  • Internal medicine (41.90%)
  • Oncology (28.73%)
  • Breast cancer (19.22%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Internal medicine, Oncology, Breast cancer, Genome-wide association study and Genetic association. His research integrates issues of Cancer, Ovarian cancer, Pancreatic cancer, Polygenic risk score and Logistic regression in his study of Oncology. His Pancreatic cancer research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Body mass index and Genotype.

His Breast cancer research incorporates themes from CHEK2, Germline mutation, Demography and Prostate cancer. Part of his project on Genome-wide association study includes research on Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Genetics. His studies deal with areas such as Phenotype, Expression quantitative trait loci, Sample size determination and Evolutionary biology as well as Genetic association.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Association studies of up to 1.2 million individuals yield new insights into the genetic etiology of tobacco and alcohol use (385 citations)
  • Polygenic Risk Scores for Prediction of Breast Cancer and Breast Cancer Subtypes (257 citations)
  • Shared heritability and functional enrichment across six solid cancers (41 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Cancer

His main research concerns Internal medicine, Genome-wide association study, Breast cancer, Oncology and Odds ratio. His research in Internal medicine focuses on subjects like Cardiology, which are connected to Stroke, Anticoagulant and Ischemic stroke. Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Genetics are inherently bound to his Genome-wide association study studies.

Peter Kraft combines subjects such as Prostate cancer, Bioinformatics and Medical genetics with his study of Breast cancer. His Oncology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Colorectal cancer and Ovarian cancer. His Odds ratio study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Body mass index and Coronary artery disease.
