Twenty-nine University of Washington faculty members are among a list of the year’s most highly cited researchers in the natural and social sciences, including Christopher Murray and Mohsen Naghavi of the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, and Michael Gale, Alan Lopez and Michael Brauer from the Department of Global Health.
The “Highly Cited Researchers” for 2016 was released Nov. 16 by Clarivate Analytics — formerly the Intellectual Property & Science business of Thomson Reuters. The list recognizes approximately 3,000 researchers whose peer-reviewed papers and manuscripts have been cited frequently in academic literature.
“This is an exciting acknowledgment of the excellence of our faculty and the significant impact of groundbreaking research being carried out at the UW,” said Mary Lidstrom, vice provost for research. “This honor also speaks to the quality of our postdocs and graduate students engaged in this research.”
