Dr. Krishnan is leader in comparative effectiveness research. He is the Chair of the Steering Committee for the COPD Outcomes-based Network for Clinical Effectiveness and Research Translation (CONCERT), which was funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) to develop the first, national, stakeholder-supported research agenda and by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) to develop a national research infrastructure to conduct clinical effectiveness research in COPD. CONCERT pioneered the use of Analytic Hierarchy Process to identify the expressed needs of patients, clinicians, and other stakeholders for clinical effectiveness research in COPD. He serves as a Principal Investigator in National Institutes of Health (e.g., AsthmaNet) and Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI)-funded multi-investigator groups (e.g., PArTNER, PELICAN, CHICAGO trial, CAPriCORN).
