Cochrane's Early Career Professionals Cochrane Group

Early Career Professionals Cochrane Group

The Early Career Professionals group aims to provide its members with opportunities to enhance their knowledge, skills, and expertise by providing a platform for international networking with early career professionals or other members in the Cochrane community.

After the success of the ‘30 Under 30’ series which aimed to introduce young people involved in Cochrane, a new organisational group, Early Career Professionals (ECP), established with the help of the people presented in the series.

This group has four main objectives, including international networking, representing trainees, active patient involvement, and knowledge translation. The last two items are a high priority to the Cochrane community, and the group hopes to involve younger researchers and consumers with them.


Everyone involved in Cochrane can be a part of this group. The steering group involves 12 people from the ’Cochrane's 30 Under 30’ series. They are as follows: Robin W.M. Vernooij (chair), Ahmad Sofi-Mahmudi (vice-chair), Andrés Viteri García, Etienne Ngeh, Heidi Gardner, Ibrahem Hanafi, Joel Pollet, Meisser Madera, Ndi Euphrasia Ebai-Atuh, Santiago Castiello, Sarah Tanveer, and Tahira Devji.
