Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Psychiatry
  • Disease

Preben Bo Mortensen spends much of his time researching Psychiatry, Schizophrenia, Risk factor, Genome-wide association study and Cohort study. His Psychiatry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Epidemiology and Family history. The Schizophrenia study combines topics in areas such as Bipolar disorder, Psychosis, Disease and Mood disorders.

His Risk factor research integrates issues from Demography, Schizophrenia, Mental illness, Age of onset and Place of birth. His Genome-wide association study study results in a more complete grasp of Genetics. His work deals with themes such as Relative risk, Low birth weight, Pediatrics and Cohort, which intersect with Cohort study.

His most cited work include:

  • Biological insights from 108 schizophrenia-associated genetic loci (4834 citations)
  • Biological insights from 108 schizophrenia-associated genetic loci (4834 citations)
  • Genome-wide association study identifies five new schizophrenia loci (1474 citations)

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

Psychiatry, Schizophrenia, Cohort study, Pediatrics and Risk factor are his primary areas of study. His study explores the link between Psychiatry and topics such as Epidemiology that cross with problems in Incidence. His work carried out in the field of Schizophrenia brings together such families of science as Offspring, Genetics, Bipolar disorder, Psychosis and Demography.

His study brings together the fields of Autism and Genetics. His work in Pediatrics tackles topics such as Pregnancy which are related to areas like Obstetrics. He works in the field of Single-nucleotide polymorphism, namely Genome-wide association study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Psychiatry (51.60%)
  • Schizophrenia (35.13%)
  • Cohort study (21.28%)

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

  • Genome-wide association study (19.79%)
  • Schizophrenia (35.13%)
  • Cohort study (21.28%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Genome-wide association study, Schizophrenia, Cohort study, Psychiatry and Genetics. The study incorporates disciplines such as Disease, Genetic association, Heritability, Cohort and Genetic architecture in addition to Genome-wide association study. His Schizophrenia research incorporates themes from Incidence, Bipolar disorder, Intellectual disability, Pediatrics and Comorbidity.

His Bipolar disorder study incorporates themes from Major depressive disorder and Psychosis. His Cohort study research includes themes of Epidemiology, Conduct disorder, Demography, Life expectancy and Mood disorders. His studies deal with areas such as Socioeconomic status, Case-control study and Association as well as Psychiatry.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Discovery of the first genome-wide significant risk loci for attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder. (644 citations)
  • Genome-wide association study identifies 30 loci associated with bipolar disorder (518 citations)
  • Genome-wide association study identifies 30 loci associated with bipolar disorder (518 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Gene

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Schizophrenia, Genome-wide association study, Cohort study, Psychiatry and Demography. The various areas that Preben Bo Mortensen examines in his Schizophrenia study include Bipolar disorder, Proportional hazards model, Pediatrics and Autism spectrum disorder. His study with Genome-wide association study involves better knowledge in Genetics.

His Cohort study research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Odds ratio, Epidemiology, Conduct disorder, Mood disorders and Hazard ratio. His Psychiatry research incorporates elements of Case-control study and Association. He has included themes like Internal medicine, Disease, Genetic association and Gene expression profiling in his Mental illness study.
