Mia A. Levy, M.D., Ph.D., is the Director of Cancer Health Informatics and Strategy for the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center and an Assistant Professor of Biomedical Informatics and Medicine at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.  A medical oncologist specializing in the treatment of breast cancer, Dr. Levy’s research interests include biomedical informatics methods – used to collect and analyze complex biological data (big data) – to support the continuum of cancer care and cancer research. Her current research projects include developing informatics methods for clinical decision support systems that will help physicians with prioritizing patient treatment based on the molecular subtypes of cancer. She is also the co-inventor of MyCancerGenome.org, a publicly-available knowledge resource for cancer treatment selection based on the patient’s own tumor genetics. Dr. Levy’s Komen-funded focuses on delivering precision cancer medicine using novel clinical decision support tools and knowledge resources, assessing the impact on clinician decision making and patient outcomes, and identifying active clinical trials for which a given patient qualifies based on complex biomarker eligibility criteria. Dr. Levy is also one of the experts involved with Komen’s big data initiative.
