The list of the best researchers in the world includes three professionals from barnaclínic+
Clarivate Analytics has released its 2022 ranking of the most cited scientists, the ‘Highly Cited Researchs’, which identifies the best researchers in the world. To be part of this list, it is necessary to be among the 1% of the most cited authors by field and year in the Web of Science. And three barnaclínic+ professionals appear on it: Dr Josep Dalmau, Dr Francesc Graus and Dr Eduard Vieta, all of whom were already on last year’s list.
Along with them, there are also five other researchers from the Clínic Barcelona – IDIBAPS, which makes it the medical institution in Spain with the most researchers among the most cited. These other five researchers are Dr Jordi Bruix, Dr Josep Maria Llovet, Dr Julià Panés, Dr Joaquim Raduà and Dr Albert Saiz. Researchers from the Universitat de Barcelona also appear on the list: Cristina Andres-Lacueva, José Luís Araus, José Luís Molinuevo and Josep M. Haro.
