Nineteen researchers from the University of California, Davis, have been named in the annual Highly Cited Researchers 2018 list released by Clarivate Analytics. The list identifies exceptional scientists and social scientists who have demonstrated significant influence by publishing multiple papers that rank in the top 1 percent by citations in a particular field and year, over a 10-year period.

Among the list are two professors in the Department of Plant Sciences:

  • Eduardo Blumwald, a Distinguished Professor and the Will W. Lester Endowed Chair, who works on the cellular and molecular bases of adaptation of plants to biotic and abiotic stress, along with the molecular bases of fruit quality
  • Jorge Dubcovsky, a Distinguished Professor who works on genetics, particularly wheat breeding, wheat genetics, and wheat varieties.

“This is a wonderful testament to the incredible breadth of expertise at UC Davis and the associated global impact,” said Prasant Mohapatra, vice chancellor for research at UC Davis. “I would like to congratulate each of the named investigators and their teams on such an inspiring accomplishment.”

Citation counts represent how often a particular paper has been cited in other scientific publications.
