The Center for Clinical Trials and Evidence Synthesis conducts three main types of research:
- clinical trials and other types of cohort studies to investigate the safety and effectiveness of interventions and to investigate variables that affect health
- evidence syntheses (systematic reviews and meta-analyses) to synthesize the findings of multiple studies and to inform clinical practice recommendations
- methodological research related to the conduct and reporting of clinical trials and evidence syntheses
The Center for Clinical Trials and Evidence Synthesis works closely with colleagues around the world and within the School, including the departments of Biostatistics, Epidemiology, Health Behavior and Society, Health Policy and Management, Environmental Health and Engineering, International Health and Mental Health; Johns Hopkins School of Medicine; Center for Excellence in Regulatory Science and Innovation (CERSI). We are also part of the Johns Hopkins Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR).
