Célia Manaia in Microbiology / Environmental Sciences; João C. Fernandes in the area of General & Internal Medicine / Food Science; Manuela Pintado in Food Science / Microbiology; Marta W. Vasconcelos in Food Science / Plant Biology & Botany; Paula Teixeira in Microbiology / Food Science. Five researchers from the CBQF are part of the World's Top of Most Cited Scientists, according to Stanford University (USA). Three of them – Célia Manaia, João C. Fernandes and Manuela Pintado – are also featured in the ranking that assesses the impact generated for science throughout the researchers' careers.

In total, there are eight researchers from the Universidade Católica Portuguesa (UCP) who are in the World Top of most cited scientists in 2021, according to the “World’s Top 2% Scientists 2022” ranking, prepared by Stanford University (USA). In the areas of Economics and Management, researchers Rui Sousa, from Católica Porto Business School, and Filipe Santos, from Católica Lisbon School of Business and Economics, stand out. Researcher Paula Ravasco, from the Faculty of Medicine, also appears in the area of Biomedicine.

The research produced at Universidade Católica Portuguesa is, once again, internationally recognized, with the university being considered, also this month, as the best Portuguese higher education institution, for the 4th consecutive year, by Times Higher Education, in THE World University Rankings 2023.

The ranking, “World's Top 2% Scientists 2022”, now released, with the results of more than 195,000 scientists from around the world, from 22 areas and 176 disciplines, presents the list of researchers whose published work has contributed most to progress in their respective areas and that most influenced the scientific production of other researchers.
