Researchers from the NOVA Medical School among the most cited worldwide


Three researchers and professors from our school, Miguel Seabra, Winchil Vaz, and João Conde, are among the most cited worldwide, ranking in the top 2% according to Stanford University.

The recent update of "World's Top 2% Scientists Ranking" recognizes the world's most cited researchers in 22 scientific fields and 174 sub-areas, taking into account the influence and impact of academic research, as indicated by citations in the Scopus database. This list is divided into two categories: one related to each researcher's entire career and another focusing on their work in the previous year, in this case, referring to 2022.

Remarkably, Miguel Seabra and João Conde are included in both the list measuring their career-long impact and the one accounting for the last year, while Winchil Vaz is recognized in the career list. Their inclusion in these prestigious rankings demonstrates the exceptional quality of their scientific work and the recognition of their contributions by peers in their respective research areas.

Noteworthy is the growth in results for NOVA, with around 8% of the total national scientists being highlighted in both lists from its various Schools, showcasing the global influence and contribution of their work.
