Sylvia Plevritis

Sylvia K. Plevritis, PhD, is Professor of Biomedical Data Science and of Radiology, and Chair of the Department of Biomedical Data Science. She is a thought leader on the expanded use of artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) in academic research and education. An electrical engineer by training, Dr. Plevritis’ cancer systems biology research program has been deciphering tumor heterogeneity by pioneering novel AI/ML analytics on multimodal biomedical data sets from human tumors. She is also a contributor to data-driven computer simulation models that guide national cancer screening guidelines for early detection of breast and lung cancers. Dr. Plevritis serves on the NCI Board of Scientific Advisors and is a fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering and Distinguished Investigator in the Academy of Radiology Research.
