Thomas Trikalinos Associate Professor of Health Services, Policy and Practice, Director of the Center for Evidence Synthesis in Health

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.
