UCLA CTSI News Archive


UCLA Newsroom announced that thirty-six UCLA scholars have been named as the world’s most influential scientific researchers by Clarivate. Among them are CTSI leaders and CTSI-funded researchers.

Clarivate released its annual list of the most highly cited researchers, which includes dozens of UCLA scientists across various disciplines. The list is compiled by the Institute for Scientific Information at Clarivate using data based on scholarly publication counts and citation indexes. The selected researchers wrote publications that ranked in the top 1% by citations in their field for that year, according to the Web of Science citation index.

The UCLA Samueli School of Engineering had eight faculty members named among the world’s most influential researchers. 

UCLA CTSI's Precision Health Program Leader, Dr. Daniel Geschwind, was also named to the list. Others on the list include researchers who have received CTSI awards. These investigators include Drs. Matthew Budoff, Genhong Cheng, Giovanni Coppola, David Eisenberg, Aldons Lusis, Aydogan Ozcan, Matteo Pellegrini, Antoni Ribas, Jeffery Saver and Jeffery Zink.
