At CBIIT, Dr. Emily Greenspan works as a biomedical informatics program director in the Cancer Informatics Branch, supporting projects related to the NCI/Department of Energy collaborations, such as the Accelerating Therapeutics for Opportunities in Medicine (ATOM) Consortium and the Joint Design of Advanced Computing Solutions for Cancer (JDACS4C) program. Prior to her role at CBIIT, Dr. Greenspan served as a program director in the NCI Center for Strategic Scientific Initiatives and the Provocative Questions Initiative. Dr. Greenspan attended Wellesley College where she received her bachelor’s degree in biochemistry. She went on to receive her doctorate in biomedical sciences from the University of Connecticut Health Center in 2010. Later, she was a postdoctoral fellow in the Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center at local Georgetown University in Washington D.C., where she studied cancer chemoprevention strategies using naturally-occurring compounds.
