Dr. David Moher has made an international list of the world’s top researchers compiled by media company Thomson Reuters. Dr. Moher was the only researcher from OHRI, and one of only four scientists from Ottawa, named to the list, which included 3,200 researchers from around the globe who are conducting research in 21 different scientific fields ranging from agriculture to space. Thomson Reuters said the list aims to capture the current state of science worldwide, and identify both established and up-and-coming researchers. Dr. Moher was cited for his ongoing research that aims to improve systematic reviews, clinical trials, as well as scientific writing and publishing. The study ranked Canada sixth in the world in terms of global scientific impact. The United States, which outspends all other countries in science, was ranked first.
