Michelle Silver is a Cancer Prevention Fellow transferring to the Health Services and Interventions Branch (HSIRB) in the Healthcare Delivery Research Program from the Division of Cancer Epidemiology & Genetics. Michelle’s research interests center around applied/translational epidemiology, and how to best use the results of epidemiologic studies to make evidence-based decisions in cancer screening and prevention, both domestically and internationally. Her work has focused primarily on HPV and cervical cancer screening, but she is interested in branching out to other screen-detectable cancers.
Michelle received her ScM and PhD in Epidemiology from the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, where she received an R36 Dissertation Research Grant from AHRQ to support her research. Her dissertation focused on changing cervical cancer screening guidelines and their translation into clinical practice in the United States. Michelle earned a BA in Human Biology from Stanford University.
