Four Daffodil Centre researchers are among the world’s most influential in their fields, according to a Stanford University study published by Elsevier. The study is based on a snapshot of data sourced from Scopus, the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature that includes scientific journals, books and conference proceedings.
Prof. Houssami said, “As a physician-researcher, much of my research is inspired by the concerns of my patients or those providing care to them – so it’s lovely to be recognised in the top two per cent. I am grateful to those who have collaborated with me, and to those who have supported me through mentoring or funding, particularly the National Breast Cancer Foundation.”
Prof. Jane Young said she was very excited to be named in the top two per cent but highlighted the importance of collaboration. “We all know research is a team effort and this outcome reflects the input and very hard work of all my co-investigators, research staff and students. I can’t name them all as there are so many terrific people who have contributed, but many thanks to them for this wonderful achievement.”
