Johns Hopkins Center for Clinical
Trials and Evidence Synthesis
The Center for Clinical Trials and Evidence Synthesis is a multi-departmental multi-disciplinary center housed in the Department of Epidemiology. Created in 1990 as a collaborative effort of the Bloomberg School of Public Health and the School of Medicine, the Center is devoted to the promotion of clinical trials to evaluate preventive, therapeutic, and diagnostic health interventions. The Center mission is to guide and inspire research, scholarship, and intellectual engagement, in the Johns Hopkins community and globally, in the areas of clinical trials and evidence-based healthcare.
The Center goals are to:
- Provide local, national and global leadership in clinical trials
- Provide an internationally recognized academic curriculum related to clinical trials, systematic reviews, and evidence-based healthcare
- Participate in and lead transdisciplinary interactions and involvement in the Center for Clinical Trials and Evidence Synthesis across schools from which the Center faculty is drawn
The Center includes the Clinical Trials and Evidence Synthesis track, which offers pre-doctoral and post-doctoral training. Further information on the Center can be obtained through its director, Kay Dickersin (firstname.lastname@example.org).
