Systematic Review

The SRU was established on 14 July 2015 by Associate Professor Chong Yap Seng with the premise to provide administrative support and training to all National University Health System (NUHS) departments to perform systematic reviews in their respective specialties. The Unit is managed by Dr Miny Samuel who has several years’ experience in systematic review research methodology. Miny is responsible for the day to day running of the Unit as well as being the focal point for internal and external inquiries about the unit.
