The annual report by the Web of Science highlighting the most highly cited researchers worldwide has been released and we are proud to announce Professor Derek Yellon is amongst this elite group.
Identifying the world’s most influential researchers who have been most frequently cited by their peers over the last decade, this report recognises exceptional research influence, as demonstrated by the production of multiple highly-cited papers that rank in the top 1% by citations for field and year in the Web of Science.
In 2020, fewer than 6,200, or about 0.1%, of the world’s researchers, in 21 research fields and across multiple fields, have earned this exclusive distinction.
Such acknowledgment is a tribute to the leadership and hard work of Prof Yellon and his entire research team at the Hatter Cardiovascular Institute.
