What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Diabetes mellitus

Her main research concerns Internal medicine, Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Endocrinology and Gerontology. Her studies deal with areas such as Diabetes mellitus and Cardiology as well as Internal medicine. Her study in Genome-wide association study is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Medical genetics, Meta-analysis, Genetic association, Genetic architecture and Candidate gene.

Her work focuses on many connections between Endocrinology and other disciplines, such as C-reactive protein, that overlap with her field of interest in Interleukin 6. The study incorporates disciplines such as Epidemiology, Cohort study, Cross-sectional study, Prospective cohort study and Cohort in addition to Gerontology. In her study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Prospective cohort study, Sarcopenia is strongly linked to Physical therapy.

Her most cited work include:

  • Biological, clinical and population relevance of 95 loci for blood lipids (2804 citations)
  • Gait speed and survival in older adults. (2425 citations)
  • Association analyses of 249,796 individuals reveal 18 new loci associated with body mass index (2348 citations)

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

Tamara B. Harris focuses on Internal medicine, Genome-wide association study, Gerontology, Genetics and Endocrinology. Her Internal medicine study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Diabetes mellitus and Cardiology. Her Genome-wide association study research incorporates elements of Meta-analysis, Quantitative trait locus, Genetic association and Bioinformatics.

Her work investigates the relationship between Gerontology and topics such as Confidence interval that intersect with problems in Proportional hazards model. Her Endocrinology study focuses mostly on Adipose tissue and Insulin resistance. The Body mass index study combines topics in areas such as Physical therapy and Obesity.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (39.76%)
  • Genome-wide association study (18.66%)
  • Gerontology (17.40%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Internal medicine (39.76%)
  • Genome-wide association study (18.66%)
  • Genetics (17.40%)

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

Her primary areas of study are Internal medicine, Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Cohort and Prospective cohort study. Her Internal medicine research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Diabetes mellitus, Endocrinology and Cardiology. Tamara B. Harris studied Genome-wide association study and Meta-analysis that intersect with Computational biology.

Her Prospective cohort study research integrates issues from Physical therapy and Cohort study. Her research integrates issues of Proportional hazards model and Risk factor in her study of Hazard ratio. Her Confidence interval study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Odds ratio and Gerontology.

Between 2015 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Genome-wide association study identifies 74 loci associated with educational attainment (825 citations)
  • Novel genetic associations for blood pressure identified via gene-alcohol interaction in up to 570K individuals across multiple ancestries (799 citations)
  • Genetic variants associated with subjective well-being, depressive symptoms, and neuroticism identified through genome-wide analyses (588 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

Tamara B. Harris mostly deals with Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Internal medicine, Genetic association and Prospective cohort study. Her study with Genome-wide association study involves better knowledge in Single-nucleotide polymorphism. Her Internal medicine research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Pathology, Endocrinology and Cardiology.

Her Genetic association study combines topics in areas such as Meta-analysis, Exome and Allele frequency. Her Prospective cohort study research includes elements of Weight loss, Gerontology, Cohort study, Olfaction and Cohort. Her studies in Cohort study integrate themes in fields like Body mass index, Incidence, Relative risk, Cause of death and Physical therapy.
