Twenty-one members of the Brigham research community have earned the distinction of being on the annual Highly Cited Researchers™ 2020 list from Clarivate. The annual list identifies researchers who demonstrated significant influence in their chosen field or fields through the publication of multiple highly cited papers during the last decade. Their names are drawn from the publications that rank in the top 1 percent by citations for field and publication year in the Web of Science™ citation index.
