SBS researchers make Highly Cited list

Ten researchers from across the School of Biomedical Sciences have been recognised as among the world’s most influential.

The Highly Cited Researchers list, produced by the Web of Science Group, identifies researchers who have made the most significant contributions to global research in the past decade. The list comprises those who are ranked in the top 1% of research paper citations in one or more of 21 fields of science and social science.

Australian research institutes have collectively been commended for their research efforts in recent years. According to Clarivate Analytics, there are now 271 Australian Highly Cited Researchers, more than triple the number in 2014. This equates to 4.4% of the total list, making Australia the fifth-highest contributing nation.
