Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Cancer
  • Internal medicine
  • Gene

Susan M. Gapstur mostly deals with Internal medicine, Cancer, Prospective cohort study, Body mass index and Relative risk. While the research belongs to areas of Internal medicine, Susan M. Gapstur spends her time largely on the problem of Oncology, intersecting her research to questions surrounding Adenocarcinoma. Susan M. Gapstur has included themes like Genome-wide association study, Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Intensive care medicine in her Cancer study.

Susan M. Gapstur combines subjects such as Cancer prevention, Environmental exposure and Hazard ratio with her study of Prospective cohort study. Her Body mass index research incorporates elements of Gastroenterology and Gerontology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Incidence, Cohort study, Lower risk, Gynecology and Cohort in addition to Relative risk.

Her most cited work include:

  • Diabetes and Cancer: A consensus report (1535 citations)
  • Body-mass index and all-cause mortality: individual-participant-data meta-analysis of 239 prospective studies in four continents (1022 citations)
  • An Integrated Risk Function for Estimating the Global Burden of Disease Attributable to Ambient Fine Particulate Matter Exposure (1015 citations)

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

Her primary scientific interests are in Internal medicine, Cancer, Oncology, Cohort and Prospective cohort study. Her Internal medicine study frequently links to adjacent areas such as Endocrinology. Her Cancer study combines topics in areas such as Lung cancer and Immunology.

Her studies deal with areas such as Odds ratio, Genome-wide association study, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Case-control study and Prostate cancer as well as Oncology. Her studies in Cohort integrate themes in fields like Relative risk and Confidence interval. Her study looks at the intersection of Prospective cohort study and topics like Gynecology with Obstetrics.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (56.65%)
  • Cancer (32.06%)
  • Oncology (31.15%)

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

  • Internal medicine (56.65%)
  • Oncology (31.15%)
  • Cancer prevention (28.23%)

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

Her primary areas of study are Internal medicine, Oncology, Cancer prevention, Cancer and Prospective cohort study. Her work on Internal medicine deals in particular with Hazard ratio, Body mass index, Confidence interval, Colorectal cancer and Case-control study. As a part of the same scientific family, Susan M. Gapstur mostly works in the field of Oncology, focusing on Breast cancer and, on occasion, Genome-wide association study, Epidemiology and Odds ratio.

Her Cancer prevention research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Incidence, Public health, Sitting, Cohort and Risk factor. Susan M. Gapstur combines subjects such as Relative risk, Environmental health and Ampulla of Vater with her study of Cancer. Her Prospective cohort study research includes elements of Gastroenterology and Disease.

Between 2017 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Global estimates of mortality associated with long-term exposure to outdoor fine particulate matter (657 citations)
  • Proportion and number of cancer cases and deaths attributable to potentially modifiable risk factors in the United States (433 citations)
  • Polygenic Risk Scores for Prediction of Breast Cancer and Breast Cancer Subtypes (335 citations)

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

  • Cancer
  • Internal medicine
  • Gene

Her main research concerns Internal medicine, Prospective cohort study, Cancer, Cancer prevention and Breast cancer. Her Internal medicine study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Oncology. Her work carried out in the field of Prospective cohort study brings together such families of science as Lower risk, Physiology, Cohort study and Hazard ratio.

Her Cancer research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Incidence and Environmental health. Her Cancer prevention research incorporates elements of Scientific evidence, Disease, Cohort and Risk factor. The Breast cancer study combines topics in areas such as Genome-wide association study, Epidemiology, Germline and Bioinformatics.
