Top 10 ICMAB articles with a higher IF in 2022 - A year in review

The Clarivate journal Impact Factor metric system gives a yearly numeric indicator of how much has an article been cited and how much impact has it had. With a total of 210 of publications with IF (before finishing the year), ICMAB’s average IF has been at 9.00, with an 26.7 % of all publications having an IF higher than 10. These are the ICMAB articles that have had a higher IF during 2022:
