Four members of the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University are among the “world’s most influential scientific minds,” according to a recent analysis by Clarivate Analytics (formerly the Intellectual Property & Science business of Thomson Reuters).  The list is a citation analysis identifying scientists – as determined by their fellow researchers – whose research has had significant global impact within their respective fields of study.

To be included, researchers must have authored the top 1% of articles that are cited most frequently in their subject field during a specific period of time. “This recognition reflects the significance and impact of the work being done by our investigators,” said Leonidas Platanias, MD, PhD, Director of the Lurie Cancer Center. “We are extremely proud of their outstanding contributions and honored to have them in our ranks.”
