Three Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health faculty members are among the most influential researchers in 2018 from around the world—those whose papers are cited most often by their peers.
Albert Hofman, Stephen B. Kay Family Professor of Public Health and Clinical Epidemiology; Frank Hu, Fredrick J. Stare Professor of Nutrition and Epidemiology; and Walter Willett, professor of epidemiology and nutrition, were named by Clarivate Analytics for being among only 24 researchers with multiple citations in three different fields.
Hofman, Hu and Willett are among the more than 30 Harvard Chan School faculty members who were named to Clarivate Analytic’s annual list of Highly Cited Researchers—those who rank in the top 1% for citations. This year’s list, based on Web of Science citations from 2006-2016, included about 6,000 researchers worldwide. Harvard University had the highest number of Highly Cited Researchers, at 186.
Hofman was named for citations in the fields of clinical medicine, molecular biology, and social sciences; and Hu and Willett for the fields of agricultural sciences, clinical medicine, and social sciences.
