Ghent University: 31 Ghent University researchers are ‘Highly Cited Researcher 2021’

Clarivate Web of Science has been compiling this exclusive list every year since 2001, based on the highest number of top publications. In order to be recognized as a “highly cited researcher”, a scientist must have a major impact on the work of fellow scientists.

The list is categorized by discipline, but there is also a cross-field category.

Cross field
For 2021, the following Ghent University researchers are Highly Cited in this category: Guy Brusselle and Raymond Vanholder (Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences), Tom Coenye (Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences), Yvan Saeys*, Peter Vandenabeele*, Yves Van de Peer*, Klaas Vandepoele* (Faculty of Science), Tom Vanden Berghe (primary affiliation: University of Antwerp), Tom Van de Wiele (Faculty of Bioscience Engineering) and Maarten Vansteenkiste (Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences°.

Ghent University’s pioneering role in the field of Plant & Animal Science is also evident from the list of most cited scientists. Tom Beeckman*, Wout Boerjan*, Alain Goossens*, Dirk Inzé*, Guy Smagghe and Frank Van Breusegem* renewed their earlier recognition. Geert De Jaeger* is new on the list.
Also on the list for Ghent University, but as a secondary affiliation, is Jiri Friml.
