2018 Top Chinese Clinical Investigators

2018 Top Chinese Clinical Investigators

In recent years, we have seen more and more original oncology publications from top researchers in China. Those cutting-edge findings are not only practice-changing in China, but also have worldwide influence and impact and are well-recognized by academic societies. Some of the research was initiated by original molecules from China; some of them were inspired by new treatment combinations.

After a careful tally of votes from over 120K physicians and peer KOL evaluation, we are thrilled to present the 2018 Top 10 Chinese Clinical Investigators.
