1. Peking University Centre for Evidence Based Medical and Clinical Research
The Peking University Centre for Evidence Based Medicine and Clinical Research (PKUCEBM) was conceived and nurtured by Professor Qide Han in 2002, who was the former Vice President of Peking University, former Director of Peking University Health Sciences Centre (PKUHSC) and Vice Chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress. Professor Jinling Tang, Changjiang scholar of Peking University, was appointed as the director of the PKUCEBM Center jointly established by Peking University with 13 national key disciplines of PKUHSC. Also among the architects of the Centre were Dr Muir Gray CBE, Former Director of the Oxford University Institute of Health Sciences, Sir Iain Chalmers, Founder of the World Cochrane Collaboration; Professor Yang Ke, former Acting Director of PKUHSC; Professor Liming Li, first Director of China CDC; Professor Yonghua Hu, Dean of PKU School of Public Health; Siyan Zhan, Professor of PKU School of Public Health; and other professors.
The Centre is a multi-disciplinary center that combines strengths from various clinical disciplines in six PKUHSC hospitals as well as expertise in evidence-based medicine, clinical trials, epidemiology, biostatistics and public health drawn from the School of Public Health. The establishment of the Centre echoes the mission of Peking University of providing leadership in creation, preservation, dissemination, and application of knowledge. The Centre strives to promote medical research that can directly guide and help to improve clinical practice and healthcare services and application of research findings to patients care and policy making, with an ultimate goal of continuingly increasing the quality and efficiency of healthcare services.

2. China Cohort Consortium
The platform (http://chinacohort.bjmu.edu.cn/) aims to establish a multi-level three-dimensional cooperation and data sharing strategy. We hope that it will encourage researchers from public health, clinical and other related fields to work more closely through providing data management, data integration, data interaction, tools development, data repositories and other functions. The consortium has included over sixty cohort studies or other research projects of the School of Public Health, Peking University (China Kadoorie Biobank, the Chinese National Twin cohort, etc.), other universities and academic institutions. The project covers a wide range of research areas such as chronic diseases, infectious diseases, maternal and child health, occupational diseases and so on. The data were collected from the provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions of China. Additionally, literature warehouse was also recommended to conduct literature evidence aggregation through data sharing, including “Comparative Effectiveness Research of New hypoglycemic Drugs in type 2 Diabetes (CERoNDT2D) : literature warehouse cohort (Principle Investigator: Feng Sun)” in this module.

Thematic area of the Working Group
The Center would like to close around the characteristics of our methodological group to carry out specific work, including introduce and disseminate advanced methodology of Cochrane SR and meta-analysis in the following areas:
- Network meta-analysis, mainly for synthesizing randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and/or observational studies, including therapy and prognosis topics, esp. for drug/device/vaccine safety
- Synthesis of prediction models involved in cause-specific or prognostic markers
- Synthesis of qualitative studies, esp. for the evaluation of complex health system level interventions
- Synthesis of observational studies, including prognosis and diagnosis methods
