Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile: Academic Nibaldo Inestrosa among the most cited authors in the prestigious PLOS ONE Magazine

The neurobiologist and 2008 National Natural Sciences Award winner, Nibaldo Inestrosa , has been highlighted in the PLOS ONE Magazine for having one of the most cited articles to date (July 2021) among those published in 2017.

Citations provide a quantifiable way to measure the global reach of an investigation and the influence on the scientific community. Thus, the prestigious science journal shows that, in the list of scientists most cited worldwide, is the academic of the Faculty of Biological Sciences for his work “Wnt Signaling Prevents the Aβ Oligomer-Induced Mitochondrial Permeability Transition Pore Opening Preserving Mitochondrial Structure in Hippocampal Neurons ”.

The analysis and evaluation of the impact of the researchers’ citations was carried out according to the same entity, through the data science company Altmetric. All the scientists who are among the top 100,000 in all fields were included, according to the novel citation index composed and proposed by this group of researchers, in Google Scholar.

To celebrate its wide reach, the journal has brought the news to the entire scientific community by sharing a collection of the UC scholar’s most influential work to date, engaging readers through citations, views, and downloads. For Editor-in-Chief Emily Chanette, “these studies reflect the quality and breadth of the research scope of published authors.”

The academic and also director of the Center for Aging and Regeneration of the Catholic University is working together with a multidisciplinary team in the Magallanes and Chilean Antarctic Region, in what he has called “the search for scientific research of excellence in the field of biomedicine ”and thus, project benefits for patients with neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s.

It is worth mentioning that the academic and also director of the Center for Aging and Regeneration of the Catholic University, is working together with a multidisciplinary team in the Magallanes and Chilean Antarctic Region, in what he has called “the search for scientific research of excellence in the field of biomedicine ”and thus project benefits for patients with neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s. It seeks to face this progressive neurodegenerative disorder, where age is the greatest risk factor, with new strategies that include the study of botanical and semi-synthetic drugs to treat it, in the new Center of Excellence in Biomedicine of Magallanes, CEBIMA.
