Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

Torben Jørgensen focuses on Internal medicine, Genetics, Endocrinology, Genome-wide association study and Type 2 diabetes. His studies examine the connections between Internal medicine and genetics, as well as such issues in Diabetes mellitus, with regards to Waist. His research integrates issues of Frameshift mutation, Genetic association, Locus, Glucose homeostasis and Genetic architecture in his study of Genome-wide association study.

The study incorporates disciplines such as CDKAL1, Glucose tolerance test, Case-control study, Gastrointestinal Microbiome and Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus in addition to Type 2 diabetes. His work deals with themes such as Body mass index and Microbiome, which intersect with Obesity. His research in Microbiome intersects with topics in Zoology, Ecology, Species richness and Weight gain.

His most cited work include:

  • Association analyses of 249,796 individuals reveal 18 new loci associated with body mass index (2348 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)
  • Richness of human gut microbiome correlates with metabolic markers (2229 citations)

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

Torben Jørgensen mainly investigates Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Type 2 diabetes, Genetics and Epidemiology. His study brings together the fields of Diabetes mellitus and Internal medicine. His Type 2 diabetes study combines topics in areas such as Glucose tolerance test, Case-control study and Genotype.

Genome-wide association study, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Gene, Allele frequency and Genetic variation are the primary areas of interest in his Genetics study. Genome-wide association study and Genetic association are frequently intertwined in his study. His study looks at the relationship between Obesity and topics such as Body mass index, which overlap with Demography.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (62.19%)
  • Endocrinology (32.41%)
  • Type 2 diabetes (21.52%)

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

  • Internal medicine (62.19%)
  • Cohort (17.92%)
  • Epidemiology (17.43%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Internal medicine, Cohort, Epidemiology, Cohort study and Genetics. His Internal medicine research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Endocrinology and Cardiology. In his work, Poisson regression and Body mass index is strongly intertwined with Demography, which is a subfield of Epidemiology.

His Genome-wide association study, Exome, Genotype, Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Gene investigations are all subjects of Genetics research. His Genome-wide association study research includes themes of Quantitative trait locus, Genetic architecture, Genetic association, Imputation and Minor allele frequency. His work investigates the relationship between Insulin resistance and topics such as Type 2 diabetes that intersect with problems in Insulin.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • 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)
  • A century of trends in adult human height (1043 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Gene

Torben Jørgensen spends much of his time researching Internal medicine, Genetics, Genome-wide association study, Insulin resistance and Obesity. His Internal medicine study frequently draws connections between adjacent fields such as Endocrinology. Genetics is frequently linked to Glucose homeostasis in his study.

His work carried out in the field of Genome-wide association study brings together such families of science as Imputation, Minor allele frequency, Genetic association and Genetic architecture. His studies in Insulin resistance integrate themes in fields like Type 2 diabetes and Locus. The Obesity study combines topics in areas such as Body mass index and Gerontology.
