Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Stroke
  • Disease

Philip A. Wolf mainly investigates Internal medicine, Framingham Heart Study, Cardiology, Stroke and Risk factor. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Internal medicine, Body mass index and Confidence interval is strongly linked to Surgery. His Framingham Heart Study study combines topics in areas such as Epidemiology, Gerontology, Cohort study, Blood pressure and Cohort.

His research in Cardiology is mostly concerned with Heart failure. His Stroke research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Incidence, Embolism, Disease, Physical therapy and Angina. His work focuses on many connections between Risk factor and other disciplines, such as Endocrinology, that overlap with his field of interest in Apolipoprotein E.

His most cited work include:

  • Atrial fibrillation as an independent risk factor for stroke: the Framingham Study. (5307 citations)
  • General Cardiovascular Risk Profile for Use in Primary Care The Framingham Heart Study (4209 citations)
  • Vascular dementia Diagnostic criteria for research studies: Report of the NINDS‐AIREN International Workshop* (3919 citations)

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

Philip A. Wolf focuses on Internal medicine, Framingham Heart Study, Stroke, Cardiology and Framingham Risk Score. The various areas that he examines in his Internal medicine study include Endocrinology and Surgery. His Framingham Heart Study study incorporates themes from Dementia, Gerontology, Cohort study and Cohort.

His Stroke research focuses on Hyperintensity and how it connects with White matter. His Cardiology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Diabetes mellitus and Pathology. As a member of one scientific family, Philip A. Wolf mostly works in the field of Framingham Risk Score, focusing on Common carotid artery and, on occasion, Internal carotid artery.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (73.79%)
  • Framingham Heart Study (64.81%)
  • Stroke (52.42%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2010-2018)?

  • Internal medicine (73.79%)
  • Framingham Heart Study (64.81%)
  • Framingham Risk Score (44.34%)

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

His primary areas of study are Internal medicine, Framingham Heart Study, Framingham Risk Score, Cardiology and Stroke. Many of his studies on Internal medicine apply to Endocrinology as well. His Framingham Heart Study research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Gerontology, Cognition, Dementia, Cohort and Risk factor.

His Framingham Risk Score study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Offspring, Logistic regression, Cohort study, Common carotid artery and Cognitive decline. His Cardiology study which covers Brain size that intersects with Neuroimaging. In his work, Genetic association is strongly intertwined with Epidemiology, which is a subfield of Stroke.

Between 2010 and 2018, his most popular works were:

  • 50 year trends in atrial fibrillation prevalence, incidence, risk factors, and mortality in the Framingham Heart Study: a cohort study (575 citations)
  • Carotid-Wall Intima–Media Thickness and Cardiovascular Events (540 citations)
  • Midlife vascular risk factor exposure accelerates structural brain aging and cognitive decline. (472 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Stroke

His scientific interests lie mostly in Internal medicine, Framingham Heart Study, Stroke, Framingham Risk Score and Cardiology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Endocrinology and Single-nucleotide polymorphism. His Framingham Heart Study research incorporates themes from Hyperintensity, Incidence, Effects of sleep deprivation on cognitive performance, Brain-derived neurotrophic factor and Risk factor.

Philip A. Wolf has researched Stroke in several fields, including Physical therapy and Blood pressure. His Framingham Risk Score study incorporates themes from Offspring, Apolipoprotein E, Epidemiology and Cognitive decline. His Cardiology research includes elements of Diabetes mellitus, Fractional anisotropy, Odds ratio and Surgery.
