The highly anticipated annual list identifies researchers who demonstrated significant influence in their chosen field or fields through the publication of multiple highly cited papers during the last decade. Their names are drawn from the publications that rank in the top 1% by citations for field and publication year in the Web of Science™ citation index.

Gary's research interests are primarily focused on methodological aspects surrounding the development and validation multivariable prediction (prognostic) models (design and analysis) and he has published extensively in this area. 

Cyrus leads an internationally competitive programme of research into the epidemiology of musculoskeletal disorders, most notably osteoporosis.

Fiona is Director at the Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology, and her research interests include characterisation of the interaction between the intestinal microbiota and the host immune system and how this mutualistic relationship breaks down in inflammatory bowel disease.

The late Doug Altman’s varied research interests included the use and abuse of statistics in medical research, studies of prognosis, regression modelling, systematic reviews and meta-analysis, randomised trials, and studies of medical measurement. 

Head of Department at NDORMS, Professor Andrew Carr, said: “My congratulations go to my colleagues on achieving global recognition of excellence for their research. We can be proud of our strong multi-disciplinary research base and the impact it has on translational research to improve patients’ quality of life.”
