Dr. Albert J. Fornace, Jr., MD, has recently been appointed to the Thomson ISI rating of "Highly Cited," a select group comprising less than one half of one percent of all publishing researchers. There were 14,125 citations of his work in other publications from 1983 to 2003 as determined by ISI Thomson Scientific, publishers of numerous science information databases that include Current Contents and Science Citation Index. Dr. Fornace, a professor of Genetics and Complex Diseases at Harvard University School of Public Health, develops functional genomics and metabolomics approaches to monitor for stress responses at the genome-wide level. His results to date indicate that signatures of gene expression will have utility in biodosimetry of radiation exposures and in the emerging field of toxicogenomics. (http://www.highlycited.com/)
