Those 17 CMI members are over a quarter of the 56 UC San Diego researchers named, propelling the university to 9th on the list of institutions with the most highly cited researchers.
“The CMI’s mission is to facilitate interdisciplinary and impactful collaborations, both within the university and with other institutions and organizations,” commented CMI executive director Andrew Bartko while discussing the Highly Cited Researchers report. “The broad array of fields represented on this year’s list is a testament to the diverse areas of study in which our members are involved, as well as the importance of the work they’re doing to advance our collective understanding of microbiome research.”
For the second year in a row, CMI founder and faculty director Rob Knight was the only researcher to be included in four different areas of study (Biology and Biochemistry, Environment and Ecology, Microbiology, & Molecular Biology and Genetics).
The highly anticipated annual list identifies researchers who demonstrated significant influence in their chosen field or fields through the publication of multiple highly cited papers during the last decade. Their names are drawn from the publications that rank in the top 1% by citations for field and publication year in the Web of Science™ citation index.
