What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Genetics

Tim D. Spector spends much of his time researching Genetics, Genome-wide association study, Internal medicine, Endocrinology and Single-nucleotide polymorphism. Locus, Quantitative trait locus, Gene, Heritability and Candidate gene are subfields of Genetics in which his conducts study. His Genome-wide association study study incorporates themes from Bioinformatics, Disease, Allele, Genetic association and Genetic architecture.

His work in Internal medicine addresses subjects such as Surgery, which are connected to disciplines such as Osteoarthritis, Confidence interval and Urology. His Single-nucleotide polymorphism study which covers Osteoporosis that intersects with Lumbar vertebrae. His Body mass index research integrates issues from FTO gene, Obesity and Cohort.

His most cited work include:

  • Biological, clinical and population relevance of 95 loci for blood lipids (2804 citations)
  • Epigenetic differences arise during the lifetime of monozygotic twins (2717 citations)
  • Association analyses of 249,796 individuals reveal 18 new loci associated with body mass index (2348 citations)

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

Tim D. Spector mainly investigates Genetics, Internal medicine, Genome-wide association study, Endocrinology and Heritability. His work on Genetics deals in particular with Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Genetic association, Gene, Locus and Allele. The study incorporates disciplines such as Osteoarthritis and Surgery in addition to Internal medicine.

His Osteoarthritis research incorporates themes from Physical therapy and Radiography. In his study, Disease is strongly linked to Bioinformatics, which falls under the umbrella field of Genome-wide association study. Tim D. Spector studies Twin study, a branch of Heritability.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (31.34%)
  • Internal medicine (27.95%)
  • Genome-wide association study (21.24%)

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

  • Genome-wide association study (21.24%)
  • Genetics (31.34%)
  • Internal medicine (27.95%)

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

His primary areas of study are Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Internal medicine, Microbiome and Disease. Genome-wide association study is a subfield of Single-nucleotide polymorphism that Tim D. Spector investigates. Gene, Genetic variation, Locus, Heritability and Allele are among the areas of Genetics where the researcher is concentrating his efforts.

His Internal medicine research includes themes of Endocrinology and Cardiology. His Microbiome study combines topics in areas such as Metabolome, Gut flora, Physiology and Metagenomics. Tim D. Spector combines topics linked to Cohort study with his work on Cohort.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Real-time tracking of self-reported symptoms to predict potential COVID-19. (455 citations)
  • Risk of COVID-19 among front-line health-care workers and the general community: a prospective cohort study. (394 citations)
  • Role of the gut microbiota in nutrition and health (383 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

Tim D. Spector mostly deals with Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Microbiome, Disease and Genetic association. His Genome-wide association study study is related to the wider topic of Single-nucleotide polymorphism. The various areas that Tim D. Spector examines in his Microbiome study include Evolutionary biology, Gut flora and Metagenomics.

Tim D. Spector has researched Disease in several fields, including Obesity, Blood pressure, Bioinformatics and Risk factor. In his work, Genotype is strongly intertwined with Heritability, which is a subfield of Genetic variation. His Odds ratio research is under the purview of Internal medicine.
