Chilkoti Makes Most Cited List for Materials Science and Engineering

Ashutosh ChilkotiAshutosh Chilkoti, the Theo Pilkington Professor and chair of biomedical engineering at Duke University, has been listed among the most cited researchers in materials science and engineering by Elsevier Scopus Data.

The highly cited researchers or scholars are either the corresponding author or the first author of their publications. Among all the researchers, only the top 300 in the field of materials science and engineering are included in the list ranked by the total citations of their papers. 

Chilkoti’s work garnering the high number of citations focus on new classes of engineered polymers that are being exploited for applications such as bioseparations, plasmonic biosensors, low-cost clinical diagnostics and drug delivery.
