Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Mutation

Genetics, Parkinson's disease, Disease, Parkinsonism and Genome-wide association study are his primary areas of study. His work in Genetics addresses issues such as Parkin, which are connected to fields such as Point mutation, Mitochondrion and Age of onset. Parkinson's disease is a subfield of Internal medicine that Thomas Gasser investigates.

His research investigates the connection with Disease and areas like Psychiatry which intersect with concerns in Intensive care medicine. Thomas Gasser interconnects Gene duplication, Exome sequencing, Spect imaging and Locus in the investigation of issues within Parkinsonism. His Genome-wide association study research includes themes of Meta-analysis, Genetic heterogeneity, Genetic association and Allele frequency.

His most cited work include:

  • Mutations in LRRK2 Cause Autosomal-Dominant Parkinsonism with Pleomorphic Pathology (2198 citations)
  • MDS clinical diagnostic criteria for Parkinson's disease (1702 citations)
  • Genome-wide association study reveals genetic risk underlying Parkinson's disease (1433 citations)

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

Thomas Gasser mainly focuses on Genetics, Parkinson's disease, Disease, Internal medicine and LRRK2. His is involved in several facets of Genetics study, as is seen by his studies on Gene, Genome-wide association study, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Locus and Mutation. His Genome-wide association study research focuses on Genetic association and how it connects with Heritability.

Thomas Gasser focuses mostly in the field of Parkinson's disease, narrowing it down to topics relating to Parkinsonism and, in certain cases, Parkin, Central nervous system disease and Dystonia. The study incorporates disciplines such as Immunology, Pathogenesis, Bioinformatics and Cohort in addition to Disease. His Internal medicine study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Gastroenterology, Endocrinology, Oncology and Pathology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (40.27%)
  • Parkinson's disease (37.06%)
  • Disease (38.24%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Disease (38.24%)
  • Parkinson's disease (37.06%)
  • Genetics (40.27%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Disease, Parkinson's disease, Genetics, Internal medicine and LRRK2. His Disease research includes elements of Genome-wide association study, Cerebrospinal fluid, Mutation, Genetic association and Cohort. His study in Parkinson's disease is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Glucocerebrosidase, Penetrance, Parkinsonism and Cell biology.

His Genetics study often links to related topics such as Dystonia. The various areas that he examines in his Internal medicine study include Endocrinology, Oncology and Genotype. His LRRK2 research incorporates elements of Cellular differentiation, Bioinformatics, Signal transduction, Kinase activity and Gene duplication.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Analysis of shared heritability in common disorders of the brain (726 citations)
  • Analysis of shared heritability in common disorders of the brain (726 citations)
  • Identification of novel risk loci, causal insights, and heritable risk for Parkinson's disease: a meta-analysis of genome-wide association studies (353 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Mutation

Thomas Gasser mainly investigates Disease, Parkinson's disease, Genetics, Gene and LRRK2. His Disease research integrates issues from Cerebrospinal fluid, Neuroscience, Genetic association and Bioinformatics. Thomas Gasser interconnects Cell biology, Disease duration, Parkinsonism and Mitochondrial biogenesis in the investigation of issues within Parkinson's disease.

His study on Genome-wide association study and Glucocerebrosidase is often connected to Context as part of broader study in Genetics. The Genome-wide association study study which covers Age of onset that intersects with Lewy body. In the subject of general Gene, his work in Mutation and Exome sequencing is often linked to Metal ion transport, thereby combining diverse domains of study.
