“A cause for real national pride,” says Research VP of the Stanford University study.

A new study from Stanford University places 12 TAU faculty members among the world’s top 50 researchers in their respective fields.

The study identified the top 2% researchers in various disciplines worldwide. The list includes 160,000 researchers from 149 countries in 22 scientific disciplines and 176 subdisciplines. Among these, 333 TAU faculty members are ranked among the top 2% researchers in their respective disciplines (based on publications, citations, and impact). Moreover, 155 of them are included in the top 1%, and 74 in the top 0.5%.

TAU’s Vice President for Research, Prof. Dan Peer, ranked among the top 0.4% in the world in nanotechnology: “This is a cause for real national pride. TAU is known for its academic excellence and recognized as a leading interdisciplinary university. It is a great honor for us that 333 of our researchers rank among the top 2% of the world’s best researchers.”
