What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Genetics

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Internal medicine, Endocrinology and Single-nucleotide polymorphism. Her work carried out in the field of Genome-wide association study brings together such families of science as SNP, Blood pressure, Quantitative trait locus, Disease and Kidney. She works mostly in the field of Genetics, limiting it down to concerns involving Body mass index and, occasionally, Obesity, FTO gene and Adipogenesis.

Her Internal medicine research incorporates themes from FADS2 and Docosahexaenoic acid. Her work in the fields of Type 2 diabetes and Cholesterol overlaps with other areas such as Arachidonic acid. Her studies in Single-nucleotide polymorphism integrate themes in fields like Medical genetics and Genetic architecture.

Her most cited work include:

  • Biological, clinical and population relevance of 95 loci for blood lipids (2804 citations)
  • Discovery and refinement of loci associated with lipid levels (1814 citations)
  • A genome-wide association search for type 2 diabetes genes in African Americans. (1727 citations)

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

Toshiko Tanaka spends much of her time researching Genetics, Genome-wide association study, Internal medicine, Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Endocrinology. Her study looks at the relationship between Genetics and topics such as Meta-analysis, which overlap with Genome. Her work investigates the relationship between Genome-wide association study and topics such as Bioinformatics that intersect with problems in Disease.

Her study in Internal medicine is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Longitudinal study, Type 2 diabetes and Oncology. Single-nucleotide polymorphism is a subfield of Genotype that Toshiko Tanaka explores. Her study looks at the relationship between Obesity and fields such as Body mass index, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (53.31%)
  • Genome-wide association study (51.10%)
  • Internal medicine (34.38%)

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

  • Internal medicine (34.38%)
  • Genetics (53.31%)
  • Longitudinal study (7.57%)

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

Her primary areas of study are Internal medicine, Genetics, Longitudinal study, DNA methylation and Genome-wide association study. The Internal medicine study combines topics in areas such as Endocrinology and Oncology. Toshiko Tanaka has included themes like Proteostasis, Antibody and Oxidative phosphorylation in her Endocrinology study.

Her work deals with themes such as Effects of sleep deprivation on cognitive performance, Metabolomics, Metabolite, Metabolic syndrome and Physiology, which intersect with Longitudinal study. Her DNA methylation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Methylation and Epigenetics. Her Genome-wide association study research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Phenotype and Genetic association.

Between 2018 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Measuring biological aging in humans: A quest. (79 citations)
  • Blood Leukocyte DNA Methylation Predicts Risk of Future Myocardial Infarction and Coronary Heart Disease (33 citations)
  • Genome-wide meta-analysis of macronutrient intake of 91,114 European ancestry participants from the cohorts for heart and aging research in genomic epidemiology consortium. (27 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Cancer

Toshiko Tanaka mainly focuses on Internal medicine, Epigenetics, Genetics, DNA methylation and Meta-analysis. Her studies deal with areas such as Endocrinology and Type 2 diabetes as well as Internal medicine. Her Type 2 diabetes study incorporates themes from Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Glucose homeostasis, Insulin resistance.

Her work in Genome-wide association study and Genetic variation is related to Genetics. Her research in Genome-wide association study tackles topics such as Cohort which are related to areas like Mendelian randomization. Her Meta-analysis research includes themes of Cohort study and Medical genetics.
