Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Genetics

Samuli Ripatti spends much of his time researching Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Genetic association and Internal medicine. His study on Genome-wide association study is covered under Gene. In Genetics, Samuli Ripatti works on issues like Type 2 diabetes, which are connected to Insulin resistance.

His Single-nucleotide polymorphism research includes themes of Odds ratio, Case-control study, Polymorphism and Genetic variation. His Genetic association study which covers Heritability that intersects with Bipolar disorder, Clinical psychology, Major depressive disorder and Genetic heterogeneity. He interconnects Immunology, Endocrinology and Oncology in the investigation of issues within Internal medicine.

His most cited work include:

  • Biological, clinical and population relevance of 95 loci for blood lipids (2804 citations)
  • Association analyses of 249,796 individuals reveal 18 new loci associated with body mass index (2348 citations)
  • Discovery and refinement of loci associated with lipid levels (1814 citations)

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

Samuli Ripatti mainly investigates Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Internal medicine, Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Genetic association. His Genome-wide association study study also includes fields such as

  • Imputation which connect with 1000 Genomes Project,
  • Computational biology together with Meta-analysis. Locus, Quantitative trait locus, Allele, Genetic architecture and Gene are among the areas of Genetics where he concentrates his study.

His Internal medicine research incorporates elements of Endocrinology, Type 2 diabetes, Oncology and Cardiology. The various areas that Samuli Ripatti examines in his Single-nucleotide polymorphism study include Odds ratio and Allele frequency. In his research, Biobank is intimately related to Disease, which falls under the overarching field of Genetic association.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genome-wide association study (76.00%)
  • Genetics (75.69%)
  • Internal medicine (40.31%)

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

  • Internal medicine (40.31%)
  • Genetics (75.69%)
  • Genome-wide association study (76.00%)

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

Samuli Ripatti mostly deals with Internal medicine, Genetics, Genome-wide association study, Disease and Genetic architecture. His Internal medicine study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Cardiology, Type 2 diabetes and Hyperlipidemia. His Locus, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Allele, Exome sequencing and Phenotype investigations are all subjects of Genetics research.

Samuli Ripatti has researched Single-nucleotide polymorphism in several fields, including Bioelectrical impedance analysis and Lean body mass. The concepts of his Genome-wide association study study are interwoven with issues in Mendelian randomization, Multivariate statistics, Genetic association, Imputation and Computational biology. His Genetic architecture research incorporates elements of Pleiotropy and Cytokine.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Genome-wide association study identifies eight risk loci and implicates metabo-psychiatric origins for anorexia nervosa (208 citations)
  • Genome-wide association study identifies eight risk loci and implicates metabo-psychiatric origins for anorexia nervosa (208 citations)
  • Case-mix, care pathways, and outcomes in patients with traumatic brain injury in CENTER-TBI: a European prospective, multicentre, longitudinal, cohort study (69 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Statistics

His primary areas of study are Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Internal medicine, Genetic association and Disease. Samuli Ripatti performs integrative Genome-wide association study and CYP2A6 research in his work. His study involves Genetic architecture, Allele, Medical genetics, Locus and Single-nucleotide polymorphism, a branch of Genetics.

His Medical genetics research focuses on subjects like Adiponectin, which are linked to Gene. He focuses mostly in the field of Genetic association, narrowing it down to topics relating to Imputation and, in certain cases, Minor allele frequency, 1000 Genomes Project and Colorectal cancer. His research in Disease focuses on subjects like Biobank, which are connected to Biomarker, Mendelian randomization and Genetic variants.
