Expertscape has ranked Professor Andreas Grabrucker number 14 out of 26.815 researchers in Europe and number 30 out of 95.725 worldwide with expertise in the study of zinc biology.
Expertscape ranks people and institutions by their expertise in more than 29,000 biomedical topics according to their scientific publications.
For any given topic, Expertscape follows these steps:

  1. Get topic articles — Expertscape searches the PubMed database to find all the medical journal articles published about the topic in the past ten years.
  2. Score articles — It assigns a score to each article, based on the article’s year of publication (recent is better), the article’s type (guidelines and reviews, for example, count more than letters to the editor), and the journal in which the article appeared (some journals are better than others). It also It assigns a score to each author of the article (first author scores higher than second author).
  3. Determine institutions — It determines the institution, if possible, from which the article appeared.
  4. Tabulate results — It tallies the scores for all articles, authors, institutions, cities, regions, and countries, and then graphically outputs the results on web pages.

Professor Grabrucker is the Bio Materials Research Cluster Lead at the Bernal Institute and Lecturer at the Department of Biological Sciences. More details regarding his research activities can be found here:
