Only publications from 2000 to the present are included.

Some entries may be false hits due to the fact that there are obviously many other authors named “Baker, R” or “Norris, K” in PubMed. Every effort was made to eliminate obvious false hits by looking at several factors (e.g., middle initial, research area, journal type, co-authors), but this is not an exact science.

Some Drew faculty have yet to be searched on PubMed. This project is not complete.
