Drs. Grimshaw and Moher among “world’s most influential scientific minds”

February 17, 2016

Drs. Jeremy Grimshaw and David Moher recently made a list of the world’s top 3,000 researchers. This puts them in the top 0.03 percent, as it is estimated that there are more than 9 million researchers worldwide. The list of the “world’s most influential scientific minds” is compiled by Thompson Reuters, a major international multimedia company. Researchers are included based on the number of times their scientific publications are referenced by other researchers. Drs. Grimshaw and Moher are both world-renowned experts in the field of systematic reviews - combining the results of many different studies to solve medical controversies. Their work is benefitting patients at The Ottawa Hospital and around the world. Dr. Moher’s research achievements were summarized when he won The Ottawa Hospital’s Grimes Research Career Achievement Award in 2015. Dr. Grimshaw’s research achievements were summarized when he won the same award in 2009.
