In Dennis Selkoe's lab at Brigham and Women's Hospital, the research focus is on neuroscience, while Stuart Schreiber's team of investigators at Harvard University concentrates on chemical cell biology. Meanwhile, Kenneth Kinzler's group at Johns Hopkins University investigates molecular biology questions. Although the three labs have widely varying research pursuits, they also have much in common: They all rely on a broad mix of people and scientific talent in their labs. They all place a great deal of value on the enriching nature of cross-disciplinary research. And they are all notably productive and influential, according to citation records maintained by the Philadelphia-based Institute for Scientific Information (ISI).

Indeed, Selkoe, Schrieber, and Kinzler are among the scientists who have produced the greatest number of highly cited papers over the last three years, as identified by ISI's newsletter Science Watch (4[10]:1-2, December 1993), based on a ranking from ISI's Hot Papers Database....
