Every year the “Highly Cited Researchers” list provided by Clarivate Analytics recognizes the most influential researchers with highly-cited papers that rank in the top 1% by citation in different scientific fields. This year 39 researchers in the list are working in Austria. Among them, CeMM PI Christoph Bock, who has been included in the cross-field category, highlighting the interdisciplinary nature of his work.
Christoph Bock joined CeMM as Principal Investigator in 2012. He pursues interdisciplinary research aimed at understanding the epigenetic and gene-regulatory basis of cancer, and advancing precision medicine with genomics technology. His research group combines experimental biology (high-throughput sequencing, epigenetics, CRISPR screening, synthetic biology) with computer science (bioinformatics, machine learning, artificial intelligence). He is also a guest professor at the Medical University of Vienna, scientific coordinator of the Biomedical Sequencing Facility (BSF) at CeMM, and key researcher at the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Rare and Undiagnosed Diseases. He coordinates the EU Horizon 2020 HCA|Organoid project on the single-cell analysis of human organoids as a contribution to the Human Cell Atlas.
Congratulations to Christoph for being among the world’s most highly-cited scientists in 2020!
