Archie Cochrane

Archibald Leman Cochrane – the surname says it all.

Heralded as the father of modern evidence-based medicine and clinical epidemiology, Archie Cochrane was a Scottish doctor and meticulous epidemiologist, renowned for his book Effectiveness and Efficiency: Random Reflections on Health Services. His works strongly advocated the importance and necessity for randomized control trials to drive modern medicine, which in time has led to the evolution of the Cochrane database of systematic reviews, the establishment of the UK Cochrane Centre in Oxford and the international Cochrane Collaboration. @cochraneorg
