​This year, five Duke-NUS scientists are ranked among the Highly Cited Researchers by data analytics firm Clarivate. This annual list recognises researchers who have published multiple highly cited papers in the last decade and demonstrated scientific excellence in one or more of twenty-one fields.

The names on this list of 6,602 researchers from 70 countries are drawn from publications that rank in the top one per cent by citations for field and publication year in the Web of Science citation index.

The Duke-NUS scientists who made the list include Professors Antonio Bertoletti and Wang Linfa from the Emerging Infectious Diseases Programme and Professor Derek J. Hausenloy from the Cardiovascular and Metabolic Disorders Programme who have been recognised for their cross-field research. Professor Carolyn S. P. Lam and Professor Wong Tien Yin were recognised for their contributions in the field of clinical medicine.

Professor Patrick Casey, Senior Vice-Dean for Research at Duke-NUS commented, “Duke-NUS is immensely proud of our researchers who have been at the frontiers of scientific excellence. This recognition is a testament to the talent and expertise of our research community who have been constantly contributing towards transforming medicine and improving lives in Singapore and around the world.”

In addition to this recognition, more than 80 researchers from the SingHealth Duke-NUS Academic Medical Centre demonstrated their impact as they made the World’s Top 2% Scientists List created by Stanford University. The list launched in October 2021 identified more than 186,000 top scholars in their areas of specialty whose publications are most frequently cited by other authors around the globe.
