Four cell biology faculty become MilliPub Club members in 2018

September 21, 2018 by rls9ha@virginia.edu

Four cell biology faculty members have recently joined the SoM’s MilliPub Club by having one of their publications garner 1000 or more cumulative citations.  Bernard Thisse and Christine Thisse have each received this recognition for their 2008 paper in Nature Protocols entitled: “High-resolution in situ hybridization to whole-mount zebrafish embryos”.  This protocol has now become the standard protocol in virtually all zebrafish labs around the world.  Noelle Dwyer’s MilliPub paper was published in Science in 1993 and is entitled: “An osmosensing signal transduction pathway in yeast.”  Chan Choo Yap received this recognition for her 2005 paper inScience on “Antisense transcription in the mammalian transcriptome.” The department congratulates all four of these faculty for their achievement; citation by one’s professional peers is certainly one of the more important measures of the impact of our scholarship.
