homecoverNature Biotechnology has named Richard T. Lee, MD, BWH Cardiovascular Division, and Gerald Pier, PhD, BWH Division of Infectious Diseases, among the top 20 senior translational researchers in 2013, and Omid Farokhzad, MD, BWH Laboratory of Nanomedicine and Biomaterials, was named a top junior translational researcher. The journal ranked researchers based on paper and patent output. According to Nature Biotechnology, rankings of top senior and junior faculty are biased to favor researchers who have been at their current affiliation for an extended period. Patent analytics firm IP Checkups provided a listing of patents associated with faculty members at their current affiliations who were corresponding authors on the approximately 200 research papers highlighted in 2013 in SciBX, a weekly publication that scans 50 select journals for articles of translational interest.
