Cabrini Research Biostatistician Amongst the Top 2% Globally


Cabrini Research is delighted to announce that Associate Professor Mohammad Asghari-Jafarabadi has been recognised as amongst the top 2% of all scientific researchers globally and ranks 1021st amongst over 300 000 medical researchers for 2022.

This outstanding achievement is based upon an innovative c-score methodology developed at the Meta-Research Innovation Centre at Stanford University, designed to capture the actual impact of a researcher’s work rather than the number of publications. In doing so, it integrates multiple metrics to come to a more holistic understanding of a researcher’s publication output and the extent to which they have shaped their respective fields.

Amongst the 67 published papers Professor Asghari-Jafarabadi was involved in last year, the following are some notable highlights:

  • A study conducting a systematic analysis of global cancer has been cited on 491 occasions, amongst the highest in the world and ranking first amongst articles published in JAMA Oncology, itself the 4th most impactful journal for cancer research in terms of Scopus CiteScore.
  • Two papers, one concerning health systems performance in Iran and the other related to attributable risk factors for cancer, were published in the Lancet, which ranks second amongst all medical journals by Scopus CiteScore.
  • The depth of Professor Asghari-Jafarabadi’s biostatistical research was also complemented by its breadth, with articles in colorectal cancer and rheumatoid arthritis published in the Lancet Gastroenterology and Hepatology and Phytotherapy Research respectively, both discipline-leading journals.

As Cabrini Research continues its commitment towards research excellence, Professor Asghari-Jafarabadi’s global ranking cannot be overstated and represents an important organisational milestone. His research output, whether measured through traditional or non-traditional metrics, is globally significant and serves as an inspiration for all our researchers. Cabrini Research would like to congratulate Professor Asghari-Jafarabadi and looks forward to his future accomplishments.
