Seven researchers from the Centenary Institute have been listed among the global top two percent of scientists in their fields – according to a recently published Stanford University study.
The Centenary researchers recognized are:
- Professor Warwick Britton AO, Head, Tuberculosis Research Program
- Professor Mark Gorrell, Head, Liver Enzymes in Metabolism and Inflammation Program
- Professor Philip Hansbro, Head, Centenary UTS Centre for Inflammation

The Stanford University study was based on data from Scopus, an abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature covering scientific journals, books and conference proceedings.
Researchers were ranked in the study on standardised bibliometric information that included citations, h-index, authorship positions and a composite indicator.
This year, each of these distinguished Centenary researchers will continue to make significant contributions to medical research at the Institute, unlocking knowledge of complex diseases with the aim of developing new treatments and cures that save lives.
