World Class Faculty Scholarship

A recent study produced a composite citation-based indicator listing 76 current Tulane faculty, among the world's top 2 percent of scholars in their respective fields. The study was conducted by a group of experts at Stanford University, published in 2019 in the journal PLOS Biology, and updated in October 2020. Fourteen of the 76 Tulane Faculty listed are from the Tulane School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine. The majority of Tulane's faculty who were listed among the world's top scholars carried out most of their research while affiliated with Tulane.
