Two cancer studies led by professors of CUHK Medicine are among the 10 ‘Notable Articles of 2017’ of The New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM).
NEJM is considered the “gold standard” for the latest research and best practices in medicine. It receives an average of 5,000 research submissions each year and publishes only the top 5%. From among all the papers published in 2017, the editorial board picked 10 papers which they found the most meaningful in improving medical practice and patient care to the world. Only two of the 10 listed studies were led by scholars based in Asia, both of which are from CUHK.
