Members of the Society of Critical Care Medicine Recognized

The European Journal of Clinical Investigation has compiled a list of the most influential biomedical researchers, and several members of the Society of Critical Care Medicine were recognized. Congratulations to the following members on their recognition:

Deborah Cook, MD
Gabriel Nunez
Russel J. Reiter, MD
Paul M. Ridker, MD
Robert M. Strieter, MD
Csaba Szabo, MD, PhD
Jean-Louis Vincent, MD, PhD, FCCM
Ralph Weissleder, MD, PhD

The journal examined 15,153,100 authors from Scopus citation data from 1996 through 2011 and selected the top 400 based on citation and h-index. According to the list’s compilers, "Ranking of scientists is explicitly not the main purpose of this list. Rather, we wanted to identify a pool of researchers who have had sustained success in highly influential work." The list was created for an ongoing survey of highly cited researchers.
