Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • DNA

Shiro Maeda focuses on Genetics, Genome-wide association study, Type 2 diabetes, Genetic association and Single-nucleotide polymorphism. His Genetics research focuses on CDKAL1, Locus, Polymorphism, Genotype and Allele. His research in Genome-wide association study intersects with topics in Case-control study and Missing heritability problem.

His Type 2 diabetes study results in a more complete grasp of Diabetes mellitus. His Diabetes mellitus study combines topics in areas such as Internal medicine and Gene, Genetic predisposition. Shiro Maeda has researched Genetic association in several fields, including Kidney disease, Renal function, Genetic epidemiology, Creatinine and Kidney.

His most cited work include:

  • Genome-wide trans-ancestry meta-analysis provides insight into the genetic architecture of type 2 diabetes susceptibility. (744 citations)
  • SNPs in KCNQ1 are associated with susceptibility to type 2 diabetes in East Asian and European populations (586 citations)
  • Meta-analysis of genome-wide association studies identifies eight new loci for type 2 diabetes in east Asians (477 citations)

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

Shiro Maeda mostly deals with Genetics, Type 2 diabetes, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Genome-wide association study and Internal medicine. Genetic association, Locus, Gene, Polymorphism and Genetic variation are among the areas of Genetics where the researcher is concentrating his efforts. The subject of his Type 2 diabetes research is within the realm of Diabetes mellitus.

His Single-nucleotide polymorphism research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Odds ratio and Allele, Haplotype. His Genome-wide association study research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Body mass index, Case-control study, Genetic predisposition and Bioinformatics. The Internal medicine study combines topics in areas such as Endocrinology and Exon.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (44.17%)
  • Type 2 diabetes (42.50%)
  • Single-nucleotide polymorphism (36.67%)

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

  • Genome-wide association study (33.33%)
  • Type 2 diabetes (42.50%)
  • Genetic association (21.67%)

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

Shiro Maeda spends much of his time researching Genome-wide association study, Type 2 diabetes, Genetic association, Diabetes mellitus and Internal medicine. His Genome-wide association study research incorporates themes from Diabetic retinopathy and Case-control study. The Type 2 diabetes study which covers Bioinformatics that intersects with Disease and Diabetic kidney.

Shiro Maeda is exploring Genetic association as part of his Genetics and Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Genetic association studies. His study in the field of Locus, Gene, Polymorphism and Genotype is also linked to topics like Missense mutation. His Internal medicine study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Endocrinology and Allele.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Identification of 28 new susceptibility loci for type 2 diabetes in the Japanese population. (65 citations)
  • A genome-wide association study of diabetic kidney disease in subjects with type 2 diabetes (60 citations)
  • Identification of type 2 diabetes loci in 433,540 East Asian individuals (39 citations)
