Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Gene

Her primary areas of investigation include Internal medicine, Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Surgery and Atrial fibrillation. Her Internal medicine research incorporates elements of Endocrinology and Cardiology. The Genome-wide association study study combines topics in areas such as Meta-analysis, Polymorphism, Immunology and Genetic association.

Her work in Genetics addresses issues such as Heart failure, which are connected to fields such as Electrical conduction system of the heart. Her Surgery study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Body mass index, Clinical trial, Cohort study, Diabetes mellitus and Blood pressure. Her Atrial fibrillation research includes elements of Relative risk, Predictive value of tests, Epidemiology and Bioinformatics.

Her most cited work include:

  • Global, regional, and national life expectancy, all-cause mortality, and cause-specific mortality for 249 causes of death, 1980–2015: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2015 (3412 citations)
  • Estrogen plus progestin and the risk of coronary heart disease (1771 citations)
  • Genetic variants in novel pathways influence blood pressure and cardiovascular disease risk (1593 citations)

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

Susan R. Heckbert mainly investigates Internal medicine, Cardiology, Atrial fibrillation, Genome-wide association study and Hazard ratio. She has researched Internal medicine in several fields, including Endocrinology and Surgery. Her Cardiology research incorporates themes from Cohort study, Epidemiology and Blood pressure.

She works mostly in the field of Atrial fibrillation, limiting it down to concerns involving Diabetes mellitus and, occasionally, Depression. Her Genome-wide association study research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Meta-analysis, Genetic association and Bioinformatics. Her work deals with themes such as Odds ratio, Venous thrombosis and Case-control study, which intersect with Risk factor.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (81.12%)
  • Cardiology (40.14%)
  • Atrial fibrillation (31.66%)

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

  • Internal medicine (81.12%)
  • Cardiology (40.14%)
  • Atrial fibrillation (31.66%)

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

Susan R. Heckbert focuses on Internal medicine, Cardiology, Atrial fibrillation, Hazard ratio and Genome-wide association study. Susan R. Heckbert integrates Internal medicine and Mesa in her studies. Her research integrates issues of Incidence, Blood pressure and Risk factor in her study of Cardiology.

Her work carried out in the field of Atrial fibrillation brings together such families of science as Stroke, Epidemiology, Disease and Increased risk. Her Hazard ratio research focuses on Cohort study and how it connects with Myocardial infarction. Her Genome-wide association study research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Quantitative trait locus, PR interval and Genetic association.

Between 2017 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Multi-Ethnic Genome-wide Association Study for Atrial Fibrillation (266 citations)
  • Multi-Ethnic Genome-wide Association Study for Atrial Fibrillation (266 citations)
  • Multiancestry association study identifies new asthma risk loci that colocalize with immune-cell enhancer marks (232 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Gene

Internal medicine, Genome-wide association study, Cardiology, Genetics and Atrial fibrillation are her primary areas of study. Her work in Internal medicine tackles topics such as Endocrinology which are related to areas like Heart failure. Her studies deal with areas such as Quantitative trait locus, Cardiac conduction, Genetic association and Locus as well as Genome-wide association study.

Her Cardiology research integrates issues from Epidemiology, Proportional hazards model, Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging and Cohort. Her Atrial fibrillation research includes themes of Stroke, Cardiovascular health and Blood pressure, Heart rate. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Sinus rhythm, Atrial Remodeling and Disease.
