24 September 2020
Dr. Andrés José María Ferreri, Director of the Lymphoma Unit of the IRCCS San Raffaele Hospital, and Prof. Maurilio Ponzoni, UniSR Full Professor of Pathological Anatomy and Coordinator of the Diagnostic Area of Hematopathology at the U.O. of Pathological Anatomy of the IRCCS San Raffaele Hospital, have been recognized as World Expert in Lymphomaaccording to the prestigious Expertscape tool. The two researchers are in the top 0.1% of experts who study lymphomas, certifying them as two of the most authoritative researchers in the world in this field.
Expertscape is a tool that classifies people and institutions based on the scientific publications of over 26,000 biomedical topics. The total impartiality of the rankings drawn up by this platform is guaranteed by rigorous and objective steps:
It searches the PubMed database to find all the medical journal articles published about the topic in the past ten years.
It assigns a score to each article, based on the article's year of publication (recent is better), the article's type (guidelines and reviews, for example, count more than letters to the editor), and the journal in which the article appeared (some journals are better than others).
It assigns a score to each author of the article (first author scores higher than second author).
It determines the institution, if possible, from which the article appeared.
It tallies the scores for all articles, authors, institutions, cities, regions, and countries, and then graphically outputs the results on web pages.
We are honored for this recognition that gratifies us for all the efforts made, always placing the patient at the center of our research. We are happy that two people who work in the same institution have contributed to the prestige of Our Hospital and Our University, and we wish to share this moment with all the members of our Lymphoma Unit and with all the colleagues/students we collaborate with everyday.
