Yuri Tertilus Jadotte MD, PhD, MPH

Associate Professor, Division of Nursing Science
Assistant Director of Education, the Northeast Institute for Evidence Synthesis and Translation (NEST)

With extensive expertise in evidence-based medicine, Yuri Jadotte serves as Assistant Director of Education of the Northeast Institute for Evidence Synthesis and Translation (NEST) at the Rutgers School of Nursing. NEST was established in 2004 as a collaborating center of the Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI), and is internationally recognized as a center of excellence in evidence-based healthcare research.

Motivated by a drive to help the less fortunate, and having experienced the devastating effects of the 2010 earthquake on families and communities in Haiti, Dr. Jadotte pursued and completed the PhD in Urban Systems, a joint program at Rutgers University and the New Jersey Institute of Technology, complementing his interest in preventive medicine with the pursuit of this PhD on the relationship of the social and physical environment with health and wellness.  His research interests in that field include: improving preventive health and services for urban socioeconomically disadvantaged populations; studying the relationship between urbanization, urbanism and chronic diseases; and quantifying the effects of urban life on healthcare and population health outcomes. Dr. Jadotte also devotes a significant amount of his scholarly time to research on interprofessional collaborative practice, evidence-based healthcare, systematic review and meta-analysis methodology, comparative effectiveness research, the impact of social determinants on health outcomes, and the social construction of health.

As a member of the Cochrane Collaboration, he is currently the lead author of international teams of physician-scientists for two Cochrane systematic review research projects entitled “Interventions for Cutaneous Sarcoidosis” and “Complementary and Alternative Medicine Treatments for Atopic Eczema.”  The latter is partially funded by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM). He is also the lead research methodologist and second author on another Cochrane international team of nine physician-scientists for the research project “Hygiene and Emollient Interventions to Maintain Skin Integrity in Older People in Hospital and Residential Care Settings.” 

Dr. Jadotte is the principal investigator on an AHRQ R03 grant-funded research project entitled “Clinical predictive value of systematic review with meta-analysis for future research on patients with multiple chronic conditions: a demonstration project using the case of preventive statin therapy”, where he and his team are developing a new approach for analyzing data on populations with multiple comorbidities using systematic review and meta-analysis methodology. In addition, Dr. Jadotte is the principal investigator for the Rutgers School of Nursing endowment-funded project entitled “Comparing the synthesis of primary economic evaluations and economic modeling to improve equity in healthcare policy and health decision-making: a feasibility pilot study using the case of Mohs micrographic surgery for non-melanoma skin cancer.” In this project, he is evaluating how well two different research methods can be used to answer the singularly important question of what is the true cost effectiveness of healthcare interventions.

Dr. Jadotte earned his bachelor’s degree in molecular biology with a minor in chemistry in 2006 from Montclair State University in New Jersey, where he received the highest honors for outstanding academic and leadership accomplishments in his major, his department and the university as a whole, and his doctorate in medicine in 2010 with honors at the Rutgers (formerly UMDNJ) New Jersey Medical School. He is currently completing his residency training in Preventive Medicine, specializing in general preventive medicine and public health, at the Stony Brook University School of Medicine, where he is also pursuing a Master of Public Health degree, with a concentration on health policy and management.
