The Centre for Evaluation and Methods specialises in evaluating the clinical effectiveness, cost-effectiveness and implementation of healthcare innovations, and methodology to support these evaluations. Our multidisciplinary researchers and educators work to improve the health of patients and the public. Our vision is to improve evidence and methods for a healthier, better world.

The centre incorporates four units: 

  • The UKCRC Barts Clinical Trials Unit (Barts CTU)with expertise in cancer prevention and screening, rheumatoid arthritis, and cardiovascular diseases

  • The UKCRC Pragmatic Clinical Trials Unit (PCTU) with expertise in primary care, psychiatry, women’s health, colorectal surgery, critical care, and orthopaedics

  • The Health Economics and Policy Research Unit (HEPRU) conducts research on the economic aspects of health, healthcare and public health interventions and policies

  • The Methodology Research Unit brings together a variety of activities aimed at improving the quality and integrity of health research through a better understanding of research methods

Our high-quality research has led to influential outputs and an international reputation in methodology related to risk-stratification, cluster-randomised designs and trials of complex interventions.
