UNM researchers among "World's Most Influential Scientific Minds"

Three University of New Mexico researchers are among the “The World’s Most Influential Scientific Minds.” Mauricio Tohen, MD, DrPH, MBA, Vittorio Cristini, PhD, and XueXian Yang, PhD, were all named in the 2014 Thomson Reuters report.

According to the publication, the researchers are “people who are on the cutting edge of their fields. They are performing and publishing work that their peers recognize as vital to the advancement of their science."  Thomson Reuters says that the researchers are identified based on the number of highly cited papers they’ve produced from 2002-2012.

Tohen, chairman of the UNM Department of Psychiatry, is a leader in research about the epidemiology, outcome and treatment of bipolar and psychotic disorders.

Cristini, a professor in the UNM Department of Pathology and Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, was listed in the mathematics section of the report. He is the Victor and Ruby Hanson Surface Professor in Molecular Modeling of Cancers at the UNM Cancer Center.

Yang was listed in the immunology section. He is an assistant professor in the UNM Department of Molecular Genetics and Microbiology, the Department of Neurology and the Department of Pathology.
