Two female scientists and four male scientists from three locations of the Cluster of Excellence "Inflammation at Interfaces” are among the world’s most highly cited researchers in 2018.
Highly cited means publications that belong to the one percent top cited in their field in the year in which they were published. Only scientists who are involved in several highly cited papers are accepted into the circle of Highly Cited Researchers. In the current assessment, this circle includes around 6,000 people in 21 categories around the world. The “Cross Field” category is new this year, which takes interdisciplinary papers into account. Researchers with a considerable influence on several fields over the past decade are named in this category. These include four members of the Cluster of Excellence "Inflammation at Interfaces": Prof. Lars Bertram, Prof. Dr Jeanette Erdmann, Prof. Dr Andre Franke and Prof. Dr Inke König. Prof. Dr Stefan Niemann is a Highly Cited Researcher in the “Microbiology” category and Cluster spokesperson Prof. Dr Stefan Schreiber was named in the “Molecular Biology and Genetics” category.
