For the eighth year in a row, researcher and CEO Andreas Meyer-Lindenberg from the Central Institute of Mental Health, as well as holder of a professorship at the Mannheim Medical Faculty of the University of Heidelberg is listed among the world's most cited scientists.
The recently published list of "Highly Cited Researchers” is an international evaluation that names researchers whose publications have been cited most frequently worldwide in their respective fields or who have achieved an outstanding publication record across several disciplines.
Prof. Andreas Meyer-Lindenberg is listed in the "Cross-Field" category. This is to recognize influence across disciplines, especially among researchers who are increasingly working across disciplinary boundaries. The psychiatrist is developing novel treatments for severe mental disorders, particularly schizophrenia. To do so, he uses multimodal imaging, genetics, and environmental sensing techniques to characterize brain networks underlying risk for mental illness and cognitive dysfunction.
