Seventeen School of Medicine Faculty Named 'Highly Cited' by Thomson Reuters - 06/24/2014
Seventeen School of Medicine Faculty Named 'Highly Cited' by Thomson Reuters
By analyzing the number of times scientists were cited in others’ papers, the company Thomson Reuters has created a new list of the top 3,215 most highly cited—and therefore most influential— researchers in the world. Seventeen are from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
To qualify, a scientist had to publish numerous articles from 2002 to 2012 that ranked among the top one percent most cited of those within a given subject area. By limiting the time range, Thomson Reuters intended to allow younger influential scientists to be highlighted along with well-established ones.
Congratulations to our top-cited scientists!
Biology and Biochemistry: Gregg Semenza
Computer Science: Steven Salzberg, Arthur Delcher
Molecular Biology and Genetics: Aravinda Chakravarti
Pharmacology and Toxicology: Justin Hanes
Additional highly-cited researchers from The Johns Hopkins University included Evan Ma, Barbara Starfield, Charles Bennett, Timothy Heckman, Adam Riess, Alexander Szalay and Aniruddha Thakar. Josef Coresh and Leiyu Shi from the Bloomberg School of Public Health were also named.
