One of the world’s most influential scientific minds…..

I have been included for the second time in the Thomson Reuters list of “Highly Cited erResearchers”. Around 3,000 researchers, in 21 fields of the sciences and social sciences, were selected for the recently released 2016 list based on the number of highly cited papers (in the top 1% for papers in their field for number of citations from January 2004 to December 2014). My papers were classified in the field of medicine, making me one of the 377 “of the world’s most influential scientific minds” in this field, or perhaps more broadly in the health field.  I am the only person from WHO on the list, but several academic colleagues are there:  Harry Campbell (University of Edinburgh), Majid Ezzati (Imperial College), Simon Cousens (London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine), Juergen Rehm (University of Toronto) and Chris Murray, Alan Lopez and Mohsen Naghavi (University of Washington).
