Like each year, Stanford University has published the so-called “Stanford list” – and FAU has achieved exceptional results! More than 200 FAU researchers belong to the top 2 % of the most-cited researchers worldwide. These results are based on an analysis of the database Scopus, the largest database for abstracts and citations for peer-reviewed literature of the publishing house Elsevier.

Roughly 200,400 researchers from all over the world have made it into the top 2 % – 9924 of whom are listed in Germany. 227 of these researchers belong to FAU, among them scientists from the areas of Engineering, Clinical Medicine, and Enabling & Strategic Technologies. The study program Medical Engineering is particularly happy about the placement of Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini, who achieved rank 26 in the field of Enabling & Strategic Technologies and is thus one of the most-cited people in his discipline in the world.

Prof. Boccaccini teaches in the branch of study “Medical Device Engineering, Production Technology and  Prosthetics”. Students like you can profit from his knowledge by writing their bachelor‘s or master‘s thesis with him – don‘t hesitate!
