Professor John Lachin, Research Professor of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics, Professor Keith Crandall, Professor of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics, and Sharon Edelstein, Lead Biostatistician Manager of the Biostatistics Center, rank at the top for most cited research.
In 2016 researchers from the Meta-Research Innovation Center at Stanford (METRICS) University describe a methodology for evaluating the impact of an individual author’s work. This group then issued an initial report ranking authors worldwide as a function of the number of citations of that author’s work over their entire career, and during the most recent single year. These rankings were updated in 2020.
In the most recent rankings, Professor Lachin was ranked at the 99.94th percentile over his career, or in the top 6/100th percent in the fields of Endocrinology & Metabolism, Clinical Medicine, and Statistics & Probability. During the most recent year Lachin was ranked at the 98.56th percentile, or the top 2% world wide. Professor Crandall was ranked at the 99.92nd percentile over his career and also in the top 2% world wide. Sharon Edelstein ranked in the top one percent for career as well.
