Chennai, October 2023: With great pride Hindustan Group of Institutions announces that five faculty members have been featured in the list of top 2 percent scientists around the world in Stanford University Rankings 2023. The selection is based on the top 100,000 scientists by c-score (with and without self-citations) or a percentile rank of 2% or above in the sub-field.

There are two lists which have been released — one based on career-long data and another focusing on the performance of researchers in the year 2022.
