For the third consecutive year, Professor Derek Yellon has again been named in the annual Web of Science report of highly cited researchers from across the world. We are proud to announce Professor Sean Davidson has also been added for the first time in this year’s rankings.
The 2022 annual report identifies fewer than 7,000 of the world’s most influential researchers, whose highly cited papers rank in the top 1% by citations for a field or fields and publication year in the Web of Science™. Collated from 21 research fields and across multiple disciplines, the report highlights the top scientists in their disciplines globally.
This distinction represents exceptional research influence and commitment to ongoing excellence in the field of cardiovascular science by both Professor Yellon and Professor Davidson along with their team at The Hatter Cardiovascular Institute. This is reflected in multi-faceted research programmes not only in ischaemic heart disease, but also ischaemic stroke, cardio-toxicity following cancer therapy, cardio-renal syndrome and cardiometabolic disease.
Of the top 50 institutions in this list, University College London is 15th overall with a total of 50 of its scientists making the list. We are pleased that 2 of those 50 are credited to The Hatter Cardiovascular Institute. Harvard remained 1st with 233 individuals, Chinese Academy of Sciences at 2nd (228) and Stanford University 3rd (126).
