Biography

Andrea Tricco completed a MSc in Epidemiology (2002-2004) and a PhD in Population Health (2005-2009). She is a Scientist in the Knowledge Translation Program of the Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute, St. Michael’s Hospital (appointed Sept 2011) and directs the Knowledge Synthesis Team. She is an Associate Professor at the University of Toronto in the Dalla Lana School of Public Health (appointed June 2014). Her research interests are related to responding to decision-makers (including policy-makers, healthcare providers, and patients) through knowledge synthesis. Her research also focuses on advancing the science of knowledge synthesis and she is leading research projects related to rapid reviews, network meta-analysis, and scoping reviews.

Dr. Tricco has published over 135 peer-reviewed articles. She currently holds a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair in Knowledge Synthesis and the Ontario Ministry of Research, Innovation, and Science Early Researcher Award. She is an Associate Editor for the Journal of Clinical Epidemiology, BMC Medical Research Methodology, and Systematic Reviews; and sits on the editorial board for the BMC Medicine. She developed an online systematic review course that >335 students have completed, which is offered through the University of Toronto.
