The Bonn Cluster of Excellence ImmunoSensation2 once more is strongly represented in this year’s ranking of highly cited researchers. Prof. Eicke Latz, head of the Institute of Innate Immunity at the University Hospital Bonn, Prof. Andreas Schlitzer, head of the Quantitative Systems Biology group at LIMES Institute of Bonn University as well as Prof. Joachim Schultze, Director Systems Medicine at the DZNE, are among the year’s most influential researchers once more.

The researchers on the list of "Highly Cited Researchers" are among the world's most influential one percent of their scientific field, according to the creators of the ranking.  The benchmark is the frequency with which their scientific publications have been cited by other scientists in the last ten years (period from 2011 to 2021). The ranking is published annually by the Web of Science Group and includes around 6,200 scientists in 21 subject categories.

Prof. Eicke Latz is awarded as one of the most influential researchers in the field of immunology for the nineth time in a row. He has been ranked as one of the “highly cited researchers” every single year, since 2014. Prof. Andreas Schlitzer receives the award for the fourth time. He has been ranked as “highly cited researcher” in cross-Field annually, starting 2019. Prof. Joachim Schultze is ranked for the second time. He had been among the “highly cited researchers” in cross-Field in 2021 and this year belongs to the most influential researchers in the field of immunology.
