The Faculty of 1000 (F1000) has cited a paper published by a research team led by Dr. Benson Akingbemi as one of the best research articles available.

The study, “Developmental exposures of male rats to soy isoflavones impact Leydig cell differentiation,” appeared in the journal Biology of Reproduction. Faculty of 1000 numbers more than 10,000 experts worldwide who identify and evaluate the most important articles in biology and medical research publications.

On average, 1500 new evaluations are published each month. The selection of Dr. Akingbemi’s work places it at the top 2% of all published articles in the biological and medical sciences.  Dr. Akingbemi, an associate professor in the Department of Anatomy, Physiology and Pharmacology, studies the effects of environmental toxicants on male reproductive tract development and function.  His study of the toxicity of soy-based diets is funded by the National Institutes of Health.
