Dr. Alexandra Greenberg is a Cancer Prevention Fellow at the National Cancer Institute (NCI), Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences (DCCPS), Behavioral Research Program (BRP), Health Communication and Informatics Research Branch (HCIRB). Her research interests focus on the adoption and use of health information technology in cancer care delivery from diagnosis through survivorship. Specifically, she is investigating the interactions between patient use of electronic health records, patient portals, and quality of care through the use of large national surveys and databases, including the Health Information National Trends Survey (HINTS). Additionally, she is interested in the integration of patient-reported outcomes into electronic health records learning health systems, with the aim of improving quality of care provided to cancer patients and survivors.

Dr. Greenberg earned her doctorate in Clinical and Translational Science from Mayo Graduate School and her MPH in Quantitative Methods from the Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health. Her doctoral work used laboratory, clinical, and epidemiologic methods to characterize cytogenetic subtypes of multiple myeloma by race, family history, therapeutic response, and clinical presentation, and to translate these findings into clinical care. She also holds a Bachelor of the Arts in Biology from Grinnell College. She currently serves as a member of the American Association for Cancer Research Associate Member Council.

Current and/or past BRP mentors include Bradford Hesse.
