Immunologist Shizuo Akira of Osaka University tops the list with 7 publications in the specified time frame. He's the only one from Japan on the list and the only country on the list to post more than one "Hot" researcher is the United States with 10. Less surprising is that oncology and physics top scientific fields with numbers of "Hot" researchers, 10 and 3 respectively. This would likely be due to the large multi author papers in those fields.
