Eight CRC researchers in the list of “Highly Cited Researchers” 2023


The list of Highly Cited Researchers™ identified by Clarivate in 2023 has just been published.

The HCR list identifies scientists whose publications in the Web of Science are among the top 1% most cited over the past decade, ranked by disciplinary field. They represent the researchers with the greatest impact and influence in their field.

Once again this year, the Centre de Recherche des Cordeliers is in the spotlight, with 8 Highly Cited Researchers (HCR), including two newcomers to the ranking: Catherine Sautès-Fridman, an expert in immuno-oncology, and Aurélien de Reyniès, a bioinformatician.

Jessica Zucman-Rossi: MD-PhD, Professor at the University of Paris and the Hôpital Européen Georges Pompidou (AP-HP) – Current Director of the Cordeliers Research Center and Director of the Functional Genomics of Solid Tumors team at CRC. Cross field category.
