1958 - Fellow of John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Genetics

Torben Hansen mainly focuses on Internal medicine, Genetics, Endocrinology, Genome-wide association study and Type 2 diabetes. His Internal medicine research focuses on Abdominal aortic aneurysm and how it relates to Cardiology, Aortic aneurysm and Myocardial infarction. His studies examine the connections between Genetics and genetics, as well as such issues in Body mass index, with regards to FTO gene.

His research in Diabetes mellitus, Insulin resistance, Insulin, Obesity and Glucose tolerance test are components of Endocrinology. His Genome-wide association study study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Bioinformatics, Genetic association, Locus, Glucose homeostasis and Genetic architecture. His studies in Type 2 diabetes integrate themes in fields like CDKAL1, Gut flora, Gastrointestinal Microbiome, Case-control study and TCF7L2.

His most cited work include:

  • A human gut microbial gene catalogue established by metagenomic sequencing (6577 citations)
  • Enterotypes of the human gut microbiome (3983 citations)
  • Enterotypes of the human gut microbiome (3983 citations)

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

Torben Hansen mainly investigates Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Type 2 diabetes, Genetics and Diabetes mellitus. In his work, Colorectal cancer is strongly intertwined with Oncology, which is a subfield of Internal medicine. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Odds ratio, Allele, Allele frequency and Offspring.

Torben Hansen has included themes like Polymorphism, Bioinformatics, Cohort, Case-control study and Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus in his Type 2 diabetes study. Genetics is represented through his Genome-wide association study, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Gene, Genotype and Exome research. His Genome-wide association study research incorporates themes from Quantitative trait locus, Genetic architecture, Genetic association, Locus and Minor allele frequency.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (73.37%)
  • Endocrinology (58.06%)
  • Type 2 diabetes (45.95%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Internal medicine (73.37%)
  • Type 2 diabetes (45.95%)
  • Endocrinology (58.06%)

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

Torben Hansen mostly deals with Internal medicine, Type 2 diabetes, Endocrinology, Diabetes mellitus and Obesity. His Internal medicine research also works with subjects such as

  • Oncology that intertwine with fields like Colorectal cancer,
  • Allele together with Genome-wide association study. As part of the same scientific family, Torben Hansen usually focuses on Genome-wide association study, concentrating on Genetic variation and intersecting with Genotype.

His work carried out in the field of Type 2 diabetes brings together such families of science as Metformin, Genetic predisposition, Bioinformatics, Prospective cohort study and Receiver operating characteristic. Endocrinology is closely attributed to Receptor in his work. Obesity and Body mass index are commonly linked in his work.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Maternal and fetal genetic effects on birth weight and their relevance to cardio-metabolic risk factors (129 citations)
  • Whole grain-rich diet reduces body weight and systemic low-grade inflammation without inducing major changes of the gut microbiome: a randomised cross-over trial (115 citations)
  • Human pancreatic islet three-dimensional chromatin architecture provides insights into the genetics of type 2 diabetes (86 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Cancer

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Internal medicine, Type 2 diabetes, Genetics, Genome-wide association study and Cohort. Many of his studies on Internal medicine involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Endocrinology. Torben Hansen has researched Endocrinology in several fields, including Agonist and Glucagon-like peptide 1 receptor.

His Type 2 diabetes study is concerned with Diabetes mellitus in general. His studies deal with areas such as Medical genetics, Allele, Locus, Heritability and Minor allele frequency as well as Genome-wide association study. His work deals with themes such as Microbiome and Genotype, which intersect with Genetic variation.
