Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Diabetes mellitus
  • Disease

Ronald Klein mostly deals with Internal medicine, Surgery, Diabetes mellitus, Retinopathy and Diabetic retinopathy. His research integrates issues of Endocrinology, Retinal and Cardiology in his study of Internal medicine. His work deals with themes such as Odds ratio, Incidence, Cohort study and Risk factor, which intersect with Surgery.

His work focuses on many connections between Diabetes mellitus and other disciplines, such as Epidemiology, that overlap with his field of interest in Demography, Cohort, Hearing loss and Disease. His Retinopathy research incorporates elements of Cross-sectional study, Ophthalmology, Eye disease, Fundus photography and Pediatrics. His studies deal with areas such as Randomized controlled trial, Macular edema, Insulin, Type 1 diabetes and Type 2 diabetes as well as Diabetic retinopathy.

His most cited work include:

  • Association of estimated glomerular filtration rate and albuminuria with all-cause and cardiovascular mortality in general population cohorts: a collaborative meta-analysis. (2470 citations)
  • Global Prevalence and Major Risk Factors of Diabetic Retinopathy (2033 citations)
  • Causes and prevalence of visual impairment among adults in the United States. (2007 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Internal medicine, Diabetes mellitus, Diabetic retinopathy, Ophthalmology and Surgery. His studies in Internal medicine integrate themes in fields like Endocrinology and Cardiology. The various areas that Ronald Klein examines in his Diabetes mellitus study include Epidemiology and Pediatrics.

In his work, Visual impairment is strongly intertwined with Visual acuity, which is a subfield of Diabetic retinopathy. The study incorporates disciplines such as Optometry and Maculopathy in addition to Ophthalmology. His Surgery research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Cohort and Risk factor.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (39.05%)
  • Diabetes mellitus (26.78%)
  • Diabetic retinopathy (23.28%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Internal medicine (39.05%)
  • Ophthalmology (22.76%)
  • Macular degeneration (14.64%)

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

Ronald Klein spends much of his time researching Internal medicine, Ophthalmology, Macular degeneration, Diabetes mellitus and Diabetic retinopathy. Ronald Klein has researched Internal medicine in several fields, including Endocrinology, Type 1 diabetes and Cardiology. Ronald Klein combines subjects such as Rotterdam Study, Optometry, Maculopathy and Age related with his study of Macular degeneration.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Genome-wide association study and Kidney disease. The Diabetic retinopathy study combines topics in areas such as Randomized controlled trial, Nephropathy, Macular edema, Fundus photography and Epidemiologic study. The various areas that he examines in his Incidence study include Epidemiology, Prospective cohort study, Surgery, Cohort study and Cohort.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Global prevalence of age-related macular degeneration and disease burden projection for 2020 and 2040: a systematic review and meta-analysis. (1595 citations)
  • A large genome-wide association study of age-related macular degeneration highlights contributions of rare and common variants (638 citations)
  • Dry Eye in the Beaver Dam Offspring Study: Prevalence, Risk Factors, and Health-Related Quality of Life (160 citations)
