High profile publications in biology and biochemistry on rise at UH

HOUSTON, April 27, 2004 Through teamwork and collaboration, the University of Houston's Department of Biology and Biochemistry has produced an environment that has led to a record increase in scientific paper citations.

According to a recent analysis released in early April of the ISI Essential Science IndicatorsSM Web product, UH showed the highest percent increase in total citations in the field of biology and biochemistry, with 360 papers cited a total of 5,316 times.

A research platform that empowers researchers and accelerates discovery, the ISI Web of KnowledgeSM is a product of Essential Science Indicators that provides a resource to enable researchers in conducting ongoing, quantitative analyses of research performance and track trends in science, as well as offer an analytical tool that provides data for ranking scientists, institutions, countries and journals. Users include government policy makers, university and corporate research administrators, analysts, researchers and information specialists in government, academia, industry, publishing, financial services and research foundations.

In an interview with Stuart Dryer, chair of UH's biology and biochemistry department in the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, this citation achievement is attributed to the department's faculty recruiting strategies in the past decade and the synergy it creates.

"By recruiting faculty in our areas of strength, our department has built up a critical mass in specific areas, enhancing our contributions to the fields of biology and biochemistry," Dryer said. "Until the early 1990s, the department had been two separate departments biology and biochemistry with distinct cultures and different teaching loads. In merging the two, we recruited new faculty at pretty much all levels, from junior to mid-level to senior faculty, that built a distinct synergy created by finding people who would work well together not just scientif
