Each year, the analysis company Clarivate Analytics identifies the world’s most influential researchers ─ the select few who have been most frequently cited by their peers over the last decade. The list includes three names from Lund University, and Sara Linse, principal investigator at NanoLund, is one of them.

The Highly Cited Researchers list from Clarivate Analytics identifies scientists and social scientists who have demonstrated significant influence through the publication of multiple papers, highly cited by their peers, during the last decade.

“This shows that our research is important and interesting and that people read it. We published a groundbreaking discovery in 2013 linked to Alzheimer’s disease that many other research groups around the world have continued to investigate. That’s what’s makes science so fun: that many groups around the world can immerse themselves in the same subject and repeat and move on from each other’s discoveries,” says Sara Linse, Professor of Biochemistry and Structural Biology.

Three researchers from Lund University are included on the list: Sara Linse, Oskar Hansson, and Johannes Rousk.
