UTGSM Research Publishes in High Impact Journal

Amyloidosis therapy research led by the Amyloidosis and Cancer Theranostics Program has resulted in a published article in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America (PNAS).

This peer-reviewed journal carries an impact factor of 10. Impact factor is the frequency with which the average article in a journal is cited in a particular year, and only approximately 2% of journals carry an impact factor of 10+.

This speaks highly of the caliber of research being conducted at the UT Graduate School of Medicine and the significance it may have upon the health care community. Congratulations to Director Jonathan Wall, PhD, and his team.
