Thomas Trikalinos Associate Professor of Health Services, Policy and Practice, Director of Evidence-Based Medicine

Tom Trikalinos studied medicine in Greece. In 2006 he joined Joseph Lau's team at Tufts Medical Center in Boston, to conduct research in evidence-based medicine. Currently he directs the Center for Evidence-based Medicine at Brown University -- CEBM for short. CEBM faculty and staff work on novel methodologies for comparative effectiveness research, with emphasis on the steps of evidence synthesis (by means of systematic review and meta-analysis), and evidence contextualization (by means of decision and economic analysis). Tom and his colleagues strive to modernize and optimize the processes of evidence-based medicine by porting methodologies from computer science and applied mathematics.
