We conduct multidisciplinary research in, and teach the principles of, research synthesis (by means of systematic review, meta-analysis) and evidence contextualization (by means of decision or economic modeling) with a focus on comparing the effectiveness of interventions, tests and processes in clinical medicine.
Our research agenda includes optimizing the processes of research synthesis in healthcare and beyond by developing new -- or extending existing -- methods and tools. As the newest Public Health center, we will proactively establish research collaborations with the Alpert Medical School and the affiliated hospitals, as well to initiate broad interdisciplinary collaborations throughout the University. Center faculty are also preparing to teach introductory and advanced courses emphasizing relevant quantitative methods.
