Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Cancer
  • Internal medicine
  • Gene

Stig E. Bojesen focuses on Internal medicine, Genome-wide association study, Breast cancer, Genetics and Single-nucleotide polymorphism. Stig E. Bojesen works mostly in the field of Internal medicine, limiting it down to topics relating to Oncology and, in certain cases, Prostate cancer, as a part of the same area of interest. His work carried out in the field of Genome-wide association study brings together such families of science as Mendelian randomization, Genetic predisposition, Bioinformatics, Genetic association and Lung cancer.

His Breast cancer research is multidisciplinary, relying on both TOX3 and Genotype. His Genetics research focuses on subjects like Menarche, which are linked to Genomic imprinting and Genetic architecture. The study incorporates disciplines such as Cancer screening and Genotyping in addition to Single-nucleotide polymorphism.

His most cited work include:

  • Genome-wide association study identifies novel breast cancer susceptibility loci (2045 citations)
  • Large-scale genotyping identifies 41 new loci associated with breast cancer risk (834 citations)
  • Statin Use and Reduced Cancer-Related Mortality (638 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Internal medicine, Breast cancer, Oncology, Genome-wide association study and Genetics. His study in Internal medicine focuses on Odds ratio, Hazard ratio, Cancer, Prospective cohort study and Lung cancer. His Cancer study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Germline mutation, Cohort study and C-reactive protein.

His work deals with themes such as Case-control study, Genetic predisposition, Genotype and Bioinformatics, which intersect with Breast cancer. Stig E. Bojesen usually deals with Oncology and limits it to topics linked to Confidence interval and Confounding. His Genome-wide association study study is associated with Single-nucleotide polymorphism.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (90.26%)
  • Breast cancer (57.54%)
  • Oncology (56.38%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Internal medicine (90.26%)
  • Breast cancer (57.54%)
  • Oncology (56.38%)

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

Stig E. Bojesen mostly deals with Internal medicine, Breast cancer, Oncology, Genome-wide association study and Odds ratio. His Internal medicine research integrates issues from Gastroenterology and Mendelian randomization. Stig E. Bojesen does research in Breast cancer, focusing on Estrogen receptor specifically.

He has included themes like Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Allele, Confounding and Medical genetics in his Oncology study. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Expression quantitative trait loci, Computational biology and Prostate cancer. His Cancer study contributes to a more complete understanding of Genetics.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Breast cancer risk genes - Association analysis in more than 113,000 women (22 citations)
  • Height and body-mass index trajectories of school-aged children and adolescents from 1985 to 2019 in 200 countries and territories: a pooled analysis of 2181 population-based studies with 65 million participants (14 citations)
  • A network analysis to identify mediators of germline-driven differences in breast cancer prognosis. (13 citations)

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

  • Cancer
  • Internal medicine
  • Gene

His primary areas of study are Internal medicine, Breast cancer, Odds ratio, Cancer and Gastroenterology. His Internal medicine study combines topics in areas such as Mendelian randomization and Oncology. The various areas that Stig E. Bojesen examines in his Breast cancer study include Genome-wide association study, Disease and Confidence interval.

In Genome-wide association study, Stig E. Bojesen works on issues like Quantitative trait locus, which are connected to Lung cancer. The Odds ratio study which covers Risk factor that intersects with Logistic regression, Epidemiology, Genetic predisposition, Estrogen Receptor Status and Family history. His research on Cancer concerns the broader Genetics.
