We are thrilled to celebrate faculty members in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences who have been included in Clarivate Analytics Web of Science's 2020 Highly Cited Researcher’s list – a testament to the ongoing breadth, scope and impact of their work.

Through the volume of publications and papers which have drawn large numbers of citations over about the last decade, seven members of our department have been identified as providing significant influence in their areas of study.  As Clarivate puts it:
