0

Eleven scientists and engineers from the National University of Singapore (NUS) have been recognised as among the world's most prominent scientific minds, according to the Highly Cited Researchers 2015 report published by Thomson Reuters. NUS also has the most number of highly cited researchers among research institutions in Singapore for the second year running.

The Highly Cited Researchers 2015 report is part of The World's Most Influential Scientific Minds 2015 published by Thomson Reuters.

The 11 internationally renowned NUS experts listed, including the late conservationist Professor Navjot Sodhi, were recognised for the groundbreaking impact of their research in the fields of agricultural sciences, chemistry, computer science, engineering, environment/ecology, materials science, mathematics, physics, and social sciences. They had published a high number of scientific papers that have been ranked among the top one per cent most cited for their subject field and year of publication.

Professor Ho Teck Hua, NUS Deputy President (Research and Technology) and Tan Chin Tuan Centennial Professor, said, "NUS has been making strong progress in pursuing broad-based, cutting-edge research, and enhancing the translational impact of our work. We are pleased that the high quality and impact of the research conducted by our researchers have been recognised by the global scientific community. We will continue to forge transformative advances in research, and actively promote the translation of scientific discoveries to create economic and social value for Singapore, Asia and beyond."
