Thomson Reuters lists the 3000 most important names of 21 fields in science and social sciences. There have been evaluated articles published in indexed journals in these fields between 2003 and 2013 and there have only been considered those that rank in the top 1% by citations for field and year indexed in the Web of Science, the so called Highly Cited Papers. Thus, the fact of belonging to this classification means that the work of these researchers is considered particularly important among his colleagues.
The Translational Reserarch in Hepatic Oncology IDIBAPS group, led by Dr. Josep M. Llovet, in collaboration with Dr. Roser Pinyol and 8 more researchers, participates in a European project to identify the molecular mechanisms that have a direct impact on the development of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The HEP-CAR project will evaluate the role of these mechanisms in different liver diseases leading to HCC -the infection by hepatitis B and C, overweight or alcohol-. This research initiative, coordinated by the University of Freiburg and in which ten European academic centers are involved, is part of Horizon 2020, the European Comission framework programme for research and innovation, and it is endowed with a budget of 5.7 million euros, one of them corresponding to IDIBAPS.
