This year around 400 scientists from Germany are listed in the international Highly Cited Researchers list. Prof. Dr. Marius Hoeper, scientist at the German Center for Lung Research, location BREATH, Hanover, is one of them.

Every year, the Web of Science publishes a list of the most cited scientists for 22 different research fields in medicine, engineering, as well as natural and social sciences. For 2018, approximately 6,000 scientists will be listed in the list of Highly Cited Researchers. The evaluation is based on the analysis of the scientific publications published in the period 2006-2016. Only the first percent of the most frequently cited publications from the respective field of research is taken into account for the calculation. Apart from clinical medicine, also outstanding scientists from e.g. materials sciences, biology and biochemistry and economics are listed.

This year the BREATH scientist Prof. Dr. Marius Hoeper is one of these distinguished scientists in the field of clinical medicine. The Chief Physician of Pneumology at the Hannover Medical School conducts research in the field of pulmonary hypertension, i.e. hyperinflated lungs, on which he has published more than 300 publications.
