Nine KAUST faculty members were recognized on the influential Clarivate Analytics 2018 Highly Cited Researchers list. Produced annually, the list recognizes leading researchers in science and social science at institutions around the world, and inclusion on the list indicates the high value and respect of the researcher's work. 

Given KAUST's comparatively small faculty, these placements are just one of many examples of the University's commitment to advancing research excellence by bringing on board the world's greatest minds and supporting them along the way.
