Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Cancer
  • Mutation

Richard S. Houlston spends much of his time researching Genetics, Genome-wide association study, Internal medicine, Cancer and Oncology. His Genetics study frequently intersects with other fields, such as Odds ratio. Richard S. Houlston has researched Genome-wide association study in several fields, including Case-control study, Genetic association, Locus and Genetic predisposition.

In his work, DNA mismatch repair is strongly intertwined with Gastroenterology, which is a subfield of Internal medicine. His Cancer study deals with Lung cancer intersecting with Lung cancer susceptibility, Respiratory disease, Adenocarcinoma and SNP. Richard S. Houlston usually deals with Oncology and limits it to topics linked to Penetrance and Familial adenomatous polyposis.

His most cited work include:

  • Systematic Review of Microsatellite Instability and Colorectal Cancer Prognosis (1316 citations)
  • Germline mutations in FH predispose to dominantly inherited uterine fibroids, skin leiomyomata and papillary renal cell cancer. (1185 citations)
  • Genome-wide association scan of tag SNPs identifies a susceptibility locus for lung cancer at 15q25.1 (1087 citations)

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

Richard S. Houlston focuses on Genetics, Internal medicine, Genome-wide association study, Oncology and Single-nucleotide polymorphism. Gene, Allele, Genotype, Locus and Germline mutation are the primary areas of interest in his Genetics study. His research on Internal medicine frequently links to adjacent areas such as Immunology.

His studies deal with areas such as Genetic predisposition, Case-control study, Genetic association, Lung cancer and Genetic variation as well as Genome-wide association study. The concepts of his Oncology study are interwoven with issues in Bioinformatics, Meta-analysis, Risk factor, Pathology and Family history. His Cancer study incorporates themes from Penetrance and Disease.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (43.29%)
  • Internal medicine (35.43%)
  • Genome-wide association study (28.30%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Genome-wide association study (28.30%)
  • Internal medicine (35.43%)
  • Oncology (25.63%)

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

Richard S. Houlston mainly investigates Genome-wide association study, Internal medicine, Oncology, Genetics and Genetic association. His Genome-wide association study research incorporates themes from Case-control study, Genetic predisposition and Glioma. His Oncology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Cancer, Incidence, Mendelian Randomization Analysis, Family history and Risk factor.

His Cancer study which covers Observational study that intersects with Emergency medicine. His research in Genetic association intersects with topics in Medical genetics, Quantitative trait locus, Expression quantitative trait loci, Locus and Genetic variation. His Single-nucleotide polymorphism research integrates issues from Lung cancer and Bioinformatics.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Large-scale association analysis identifies new lung cancer susceptibility loci and heterogeneity in genetic susceptibility across histological subtypes (192 citations)
  • Genome-wide association study of glioma subtypes identifies specific differences in genetic susceptibility to glioblastoma and non-glioblastoma tumors (141 citations)
  • Collateral damage: the impact on outcomes from cancer surgery of the COVID-19 pandemic. (135 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Cancer
  • Mutation

His primary areas of study are Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Genetic association, Internal medicine and Cancer. His Genome-wide association study research entails a greater understanding of Single-nucleotide polymorphism. The Genetic association study combines topics in areas such as Polymorphism, Germline, Glioma, Quantitative trait locus and Imputation.

In most of his Internal medicine studies, his work intersects topics such as Oncology. His Cancer research incorporates elements of Penetrance, Allele frequency, Gene mutation and Hazard ratio. The various areas that Richard S. Houlston examines in his Allele study include Genetic linkage and Genotype.
