Dr. Sylvia K. Plevritis is Professor of Biomedical Data Science, and of Radiology at Stanford University, and Chair of Biomedical Data Science. She leads a systems biology cancer research program that bridges genomics, biocomputation, imaging and population sciences to decipher properties of cancer progression to guide advances in early detection and treatment response. Dr. Plevritis received her Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and M.S. in Health Services Research, both from Stanford University, with a focus on cancer imaging physics and modeling cancer outcomes, respectively. She has had a primary authorship role on over 100 scientific cancer-related articles. She is a fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) and Distinguished Investigator in the Academy of Radiology Research. She received the 2016 Inaugural Award for Basic Scientist of the Year in Stanford Radiology. Dr. Plevritis has served on numerous NIH study sections, chaired scientific programs for the several professional societies including the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) and presented keynote lectures across multiple scales of computational cancer biology.

Sylvia Plevritis is the Program Director of the Stanford Center in Cancer Systems Biology (CCSB), Program Director of the Stanford Cancer Systems Biology Scholars Program (CSBS), and co-Division Chief of Integrative Biomedical Imaging Informatics at Stanford (IBIIS). In addition, she has been a Principal Investigator with the NCI Cancer Intervention Surveillance Network (CISNET) for over fifteen years. She serves on NCI Board of Scientific Advisors, Leadership Council of the Stanford Cancer Institute and the Leadership Council of the Stanford Bio-X Program.
