Our research programs encompass clinical evaluative research, methodological research, and health policy analysis. While our original focus was on strengthening clinical evaluative research in surgery, we now have developed clinical research collaborations with pediatrics, orthopedics, pulmonary medicine, endocrinology, and cardiology.

The Center conducts research in three major areas: 1) clinical evaluative research, particularly, clinical trials of emerging surgical and device procedures; 2) patient safety research; 3) science and technology policy research.
