Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Cancer
  • Internal medicine
  • Gene

His main research concerns Internal medicine, Risk factor, Cancer, Breast cancer and Relative risk. His Internal medicine study incorporates themes from Gastroenterology, Immunology and Oncology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Incidence, Surgery, Cohort study, Colorectal cancer and Cohort.

His studies deal with areas such as Lung cancer and Etiology as well as Cancer. His research integrates issues of Gynecology, Menopause, Genome-wide association study and Obstetrics in his study of Breast cancer. His research on Relative risk also deals with topics like

  • Epidemiology, which have a strong connection to Ovarian cancer and Family history,
  • Bladder cancer and related Urinary system.

His most cited work include:

  • Breast cancer and hormone replacement therapy: collaborative reanalysis of data from 51 epidemiological studies of 52 705 women with breast cancer and 108 411 women without breast cancer (2099 citations)
  • A genome-wide association study identifies alleles in FGFR2 associated with risk of sporadic postmenopausal breast cancer (1364 citations)
  • Replicating genotype–phenotype associations (1216 citations)

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

Robert N. Hoover mainly investigates Internal medicine, Cancer, Breast cancer, Oncology and Gynecology. His Internal medicine study frequently links to adjacent areas such as Endocrinology. His research investigates the connection between Breast cancer and topics such as Cohort that intersect with problems in Cohort study.

His Oncology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Prospective cohort study and Single-nucleotide polymorphism. He has included themes like Pregnancy, Relative risk, Menopause, Obstetrics and Risk factor in his Gynecology study. The various areas that Robert N. Hoover examines in his Risk factor study include Surgery and Epidemiology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (42.90%)
  • Cancer (29.21%)
  • Breast cancer (28.55%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2021)?

  • Internal medicine (42.90%)
  • Breast cancer (28.55%)
  • Oncology (24.26%)

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

Robert N. Hoover mainly focuses on Internal medicine, Breast cancer, Oncology, Genome-wide association study and Prostate cancer. His work in Internal medicine is not limited to one particular discipline; it also encompasses Endocrinology. His Breast cancer study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Body mass index, Gynecology, Epidemiology and Estrogen.

In his study, Obstetrics is strongly linked to Relative risk, which falls under the umbrella field of Gynecology. His Genome-wide association study research incorporates elements of Genetic association and Locus. His Odds ratio research integrates issues from Risk factor and Confidence interval.

Between 2011 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Association analysis identifies 65 new breast cancer risk loci (569 citations)
  • Increased Risk of Non-Fatal Myocardial Infarction Following Testosterone Therapy Prescription in Men (481 citations)
  • Menarche, menopause, and breast cancer risk: individual participant meta-analysis, including 118 964 women with breast cancer from 117 epidemiological studies (432 citations)

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

  • Cancer
  • Internal medicine
  • Gene

His primary areas of investigation include Internal medicine, Genome-wide association study, Oncology, Genetics and Breast cancer. Many of his studies involve connections with topics such as Endocrinology and Internal medicine. Robert N. Hoover interconnects Meta-analysis, Epidemiology, Disease and Adenocarcinoma in the investigation of issues within Oncology.

The Estrogen receptor research he does as part of his general Breast cancer study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Risk assessment, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. While the research belongs to areas of Odds ratio, Robert N. Hoover spends his time largely on the problem of Confidence interval, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Gastroenterology. His Gynecology study combines topics in areas such as Menopause and Obstetrics.
