“I am passionate about investigating new therapies, devices, and guidelines that drive better outcomes and ultimately save more lives for our patients,” said Dr. Géneréux. “It is critical that physician researchers continue to investigate new ways to treat cardiac diseases and issues  and share the results broadly. I am honored that the work my teams and I have published has been cited by our peers in their own research and have helped advance medicine.”

Since 2002, the "Highly Cited Researchers" list has identified global research scientists and social scientists who have demonstrated exceptional influence—reflected through their publication of multiple papers frequently cited by their peers during the last decade. This year’s list continues to recognize researchers whose citation records position them in the very highest strata of influence and impact, as it includes 23 Nobel laureates.

Researchers across the world eagerly anticipate the launch of the Highly Cited Researchers list each year and hundreds of universities also celebrate the inclusion of their own researchers on the list.
