Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Genetics

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Internal medicine, Endocrinology and Genetic association. His Genome-wide association study study is concerned with the field of Single-nucleotide polymorphism as a whole. The study incorporates disciplines such as Meta-analysis and Heritability in addition to Single-nucleotide polymorphism.

Internal medicine is closely attributed to Cardiology in his study. He has researched Genetic association in several fields, including Kidney, Physiology and Glucose homeostasis. His study in Body mass index is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Young adult, Demography, Obesity and FTO gene.

His most cited work include:

  • Strong Association of De Novo Copy Number Mutations with Autism (2329 citations)
  • Trends in adult body-mass index in 200 countries from 1975 to 2014: A pooled analysis of 1698 population-based measurement studies with 19.2 million participants (2278 citations)
  • Worldwide trends in body-mass index, underweight, overweight, and obesity from 1975 to 2016: a pooled analysis of 2416 population-based measurement studies in 128·9 million children, adolescents, and adults (2180 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Genetics, Genome-wide association study and Cardiology. His studies in Internal medicine integrate themes in fields like Allele and Genotype. Terho Lehtimäki combines topics linked to Apolipoprotein E with his work on Endocrinology.

His work in Genetics is not limited to one particular discipline; it also encompasses Meta-analysis. His Genome-wide association study research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Quantitative trait locus, Genetic association, Bioinformatics and Medical genetics. Terho Lehtimäki combines subjects such as Young adult, Demography, Obesity and Risk factor with his study of Body mass index.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (46.83%)
  • Endocrinology (28.65%)
  • Genetics (19.90%)

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

  • Internal medicine (46.83%)
  • Genome-wide association study (19.70%)
  • Genetics (19.90%)

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

Terho Lehtimäki spends much of his time researching Internal medicine, Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Blood pressure and Body mass index. His Internal medicine study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Endocrinology, Type 2 diabetes and Cardiology. His Allele research extends to the thematically linked field of Endocrinology.

His study looks at the relationship between Genome-wide association study and fields such as Mendelian randomization, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. His study ties his expertise on Meta-analysis together with the subject of Genetics. His studies deal with areas such as Obesity, Cohort study, Young adult, Demography and Prospective cohort study as well as Body mass index.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Novel genetic associations for blood pressure identified via gene-alcohol interaction in up to 570K individuals across multiple ancestries (799 citations)
  • Analysis of shared heritability in common disorders of the brain (726 citations)
  • Large-Scale Exome Sequencing Study Implicates Both Developmental and Functional Changes in the Neurobiology of Autism (373 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

Terho Lehtimäki mainly focuses on Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Internal medicine, Genetic association and Medical genetics. His Genome-wide association study research is included under the broader classification of Single-nucleotide polymorphism. The Single-nucleotide polymorphism study combines topics in areas such as QRS complex and Heritability.

His Internal medicine research incorporates elements of Endocrinology and Cardiology. His Genetic association study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Temperament, Minor allele frequency and Pleiotropy. Terho Lehtimäki has included themes like Pulse pressure, Locus, Bioinformatics and Candidate gene in his Medical genetics study.
