Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

His primary areas of investigation include Internal medicine, Framingham Heart Study, Cardiology, Endocrinology and Framingham Risk Score. His is involved in several facets of Internal medicine study, as is seen by his studies on Risk factor, Heart failure, Blood pressure, Heart disease and Body mass index. His research investigates the link between Risk factor and topics such as Epidemiology that cross with problems in Intensive care medicine.

His Framingham Heart Study research incorporates themes from Proportional hazards model, Surgery, Cohort study, Stroke and Hazard ratio. His Cardiology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Incidence and Systole. His Endocrinology research incorporates elements of Odds ratio and Offspring.

His most cited work include:

  • Evaluating the added predictive ability of a new marker: From area under the ROC curve to reclassification and beyond (4520 citations)
  • General Cardiovascular Risk Profile for Use in Primary Care The Framingham Heart Study (4209 citations)
  • Obesity and the Risk of Heart Failure (2217 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Internal medicine, Framingham Heart Study, Cardiology, Endocrinology and Framingham Risk Score. His Heart failure, Blood pressure, Risk factor, Hazard ratio and Body mass index study are his primary interests in Internal medicine. His research investigates the connection between Framingham Heart Study and topics such as Cohort study that intersect with issues in Genome-wide association study.

His study on Cardiology is mostly dedicated to connecting different topics, such as Confidence interval. Ramachandran S. Vasan combines topics linked to Natriuretic peptide with his work on Endocrinology. His studies deal with areas such as Offspring, Prospective cohort study, Odds ratio and Stroke as well as Framingham Risk Score.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (85.33%)
  • Framingham Heart Study (56.98%)
  • Cardiology (49.15%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Internal medicine (85.33%)
  • Framingham Heart Study (56.98%)
  • Cardiology (49.15%)

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

His primary areas of study are Internal medicine, Framingham Heart Study, Cardiology, Disease and Heart failure. Internal medicine is closely attributed to Endocrinology in his research. His study looks at the intersection of Framingham Heart Study and topics like Body mass index with Obesity.

His studies in Cardiology integrate themes in fields like Pulse wave velocity, Heart rate, Arterial stiffness and Risk factor. Ramachandran S. Vasan combines subjects such as Young adult, Genome-wide association study, Bioinformatics and Subclinical infection with his study of Disease. His work carried out in the field of Heart failure brings together such families of science as Diastole, Myocardial infarction and Atrial fibrillation.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Dose-response associations between accelerometry measured physical activity and sedentary time and all cause mortality: systematic review and harmonised meta-analysis (260 citations)
  • How to diagnose heart failure with preserved ejection fraction: the HFA-PEFF diagnostic algorithm: a consensus recommendation from the Heart Failure Association (HFA) of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) (221 citations)
  • Sequencing of 53,831 diverse genomes from the NHLBI TOPMed Program (143 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

His main research concerns Internal medicine, Framingham Heart Study, Cardiology, Heart failure and Disease. All of his Internal medicine and Framingham Risk Score, Hazard ratio, Cohort, Cohort study and Dementia investigations are sub-components of the entire Internal medicine study. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Endocrinology and Incidence.

His Framingham Heart Study study combines topics in areas such as Epidemiology, Diabetes mellitus, Lower risk, Stroke and Brain size. His Cardiology study also includes fields such as

  • Risk factor which connect with Blood pressure,
  • Pulse wave velocity that connect with fields like Target organ damage and Disease outcome. His study focuses on the intersection of Heart failure and fields such as Atrial fibrillation with connections in the field of Case-control study and Genetic association.
