My ten most significant (and leaving my own school to one side) would probably include: Abbott, Bradley, Choi, Hazard, Issacharoff, Perry, Rubin, Syverud, Williams. Comments are open, and are being pre-screened for relevance and content. Because I'm on the road, there may be some delay in the appearance of the comments.
