Congratulations to NM-INBRE science advisor, Jeff Arterburn as he is recognized among the top 2% worldwide for research citations

New Mexico INBRE is proud to announce that Dr. Jeff Arterburn, along with other NMSU faculty members were recognized among the top 2% worldwide for research citations.  They were listed in a worldwide database of top scientists created by Stanford University.

The study includes the top 100,000 scientists in all fields. The data also lists scientists who are not in the top 100,000 of all research disciplines, but are within the top 2% of scientists of their main subfield discipline, assessing career-long citation impact up until the end of 2019 and for citation impact during the single calendar year 2019. 

Dr. Jeffrey Arterburn is a Regents Professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry and a New Mexico INBRE science advisor.  His research harness the power of synthetic chemistry for cancer drug discovery and the design of novel biological probes. His current projects focus on new therapies for breast cancer and lipid labeling with fluorescent dyes for live cell and super-resolution microscopy.

“I feel that this recognition, after having spent my scientific career at an archetypal INBRE institution, reaffirms the tenets that we can compete to deliver important, impactful science, and that we provide excellent scientific training for the next generation of outstanding, diverse young scientists.” Dr. Arterburn, said.
