Medical and research staff at the Can Ruti Campus, once again among the world’s most prominent in the scientific field

The Can Ruti Campus and the healthcare and research teams of the different institutions that comprise it continue to prove, once again this year, to be a relevant node on a global scale in terms of scientific production and progress.

The list includes approximately 200,000 authors, accounting for 2% of the world's scientific workforce, who are recognised in two rankings: for their entire scientific career and for their impact in the past year.
