Meet the Center for Evidence Synthesis in Health (CESH)

We strive to improve the health and wellbeing of individuals and populations by conducting research in and teaching the principles of, evidence synthesis.  Our mission is to advance the state of our knowledge about what works in health care.

To further this mission, we:

  • Conduct systematic reviews and meta-analyses to examine, distill and assess specific medical problems or treatments
  • Train others to conduct evidence synthesis
  • Develop and refine evidence synthesis research methods
  • Develop and maintain software to automate elements of the evidence synthesis processes

We also provide experiential learning and research opportunities for undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate scholars, and faculty and healthcare professionals within and outside the Brown community.
