Dr. Silver is an epidemiologist and health services researcher. Her research interests center around applied/translational epidemiology, and how to best use the results of epidemiologic studies to make and implement evidence-based decisions in cancer screening and prevention.  Her research examines patient-, provider-, and system-level factors that influence the effective translation of evidence-based practices, especially screening recommendations, into routine clinical care.  A large focus of her work is on screening and prevention of the human papillomavirus (HPV) and cervical cancer.
