Alex Sutton

Alex Sutton is Professor of Medical Statistics at the University of Leicester, UK. He has a longstanding interest in methodology for evidence synthesis encompassing publication bias, network meta-analysis, diagnostic test evaluation, visualisation methods, and using evidence synthesis to inform the design of future primary studies.

He is currently a member of the Complex Review Support Unit which aims at assisting systematic reviewers integrate more sophisticated, but clinically relevant, methods into their work, and has overseen the creation of several user-friendly online web apps to conduct analyses including network meta-analysis.

The work Alex is most proud of to date is his groundwork on evidence-based sample size calculations, considering how the sample size for a new study can be calculated for updating an existing meta-analysis. This work also highlighted the challenges unexplained between-study heterogeneity adds to this approach and he has published frequently on this topic since.
