Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

Veikko Salomaa mainly investigates Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Internal medicine, Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Genetic association. His studies in Genome-wide association study integrate themes in fields like Bioinformatics, Coronary artery disease, Disease, Allele and Genetic architecture. As part of his studies on Genetics, Veikko Salomaa often connects relevant subjects like Body mass index.

His Internal medicine research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Diabetes mellitus, Endocrinology and Cardiology. His research integrates issues of Genetic epidemiology, Case-control study, Haplotype and Genetic variation in his study of Single-nucleotide polymorphism. His Genetic association research integrates issues from Imputation, Blood pressure, Genetic testing and Glucose homeostasis.

His most cited work include:

  • Biological insights from 108 schizophrenia-associated genetic loci (4834 citations)
  • Biological, clinical and population relevance of 95 loci for blood lipids (2804 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?

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Internal medicine, Genetics, Genome-wide association study, Cardiology and Endocrinology. His study brings together the fields of Diabetes mellitus and Internal medicine. Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Allele, Gene, Locus and Genetic variation are among the areas of Genetics where he concentrates his study.

His research in Single-nucleotide polymorphism intersects with topics in Odds ratio, Allele frequency and Haplotype. His study in Genome-wide association study is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Bioinformatics, Quantitative trait locus, Genetic architecture, Disease and Genetic association. His Myocardial infarction research focuses on Incidence and how it relates to Stroke.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (42.05%)
  • Genetics (24.55%)
  • Genome-wide association study (23.26%)

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

  • Internal medicine (42.05%)
  • Genome-wide association study (23.26%)
  • Genetics (24.55%)

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

Veikko Salomaa focuses on Internal medicine, Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Cardiology and Disease. His studies deal with areas such as Diabetes mellitus, Endocrinology and Type 2 diabetes as well as Internal medicine. Veikko Salomaa has included themes like Mendelian randomization, Bioinformatics, Medical genetics, Genetic association and Locus in his Genome-wide association study study.

His study in Exome sequencing, Genetic architecture, Heritability, Gene and Allele are all subfields of Genetics. His research links Risk factor with Cardiology. His Hazard ratio study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Body mass index, Lower risk, Proportional hazards model and Cohort study.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Analysis of shared heritability in common disorders of the brain (726 citations)
  • Risk thresholds for alcohol consumption: combined analysis of individual-participant data for 599 912 current drinkers in 83 prospective studies (385 citations)
  • Genomic Dissection of Bipolar Disorder and Schizophrenia, Including 28 Subphenotypes (328 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

Veikko Salomaa spends much of his time researching Internal medicine, Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Disease and Genetic association. His work carried out in the field of Internal medicine brings together such families of science as Endocrinology, Type 2 diabetes and Cardiology. His Type 2 diabetes study which covers Prospective cohort study that intersects with Physiology, Young adult, Meta-analysis and Body mass index.

Veikko Salomaa interconnects Heritability, Mendelian randomization and Medical genetics in the investigation of issues within Genome-wide association study. His Disease study combines topics in areas such as Microbiome, Schizophrenia, Phenotype, Bipolar disorder and Immunology. His Genetic association research includes themes of Pleiotropy, Bioinformatics, Mendelian Randomization Analysis, Case-control study and Imputation.
