Professor Georgina Long named as one of world's most highly cited researchers
4 December 2018
Melanoma Institute Australia’s Co-Medical Director Professor Georgina Long has been included in the 2018 Clarivate Analytics Highly Cited Researchers List in recognition of her global leadership in melanoma research and clinical trials.
Professor Long is one of only 12 researchers from The University of Sydney to be listed in the top one percent of researchers in their field. Professor Long was named in the Clinical Medicine category for her extensive work in melanoma research and clinical trials.
‘This is an outstanding achievement and great recognition of the global impact of Professor Long’s research, particularly in clinical trials,’ said fellow MIA Co-Medical Director Professor Richard Scolyer. ‘We are exceptionally proud to have someone of Georgina’s calibre as part of our team which is changing the face of melanoma treatment around the world.’
Now in its 5th year, the Clarivate Analytics Highly Cited Researchers List names the most influential researchers impacting their chosen fields, measured by rate of citation by their peers. Other researchers on the list include one of this year’s Nobel Laureates in Physiology or Medicine, Professor James P. Allison.
The Academic Ranking of World Universities uses the Highly Cited Researchers List to calculate the Highly Cited Score, which contributes to an institutions overall rank. This year, The University of Sydney climbed 15 places to its highest rank so far, due in no small part to research output of Professor Long and the other 11 researchers.
