Tracy L Onega, PhD
Associate Professor of Biomedical Data Science


Dr. Onega is a health services researcher whose major interests in cancer control center on: access to cancer care, including screening, treatment, and surveillance; how where care is received influences treatment and outcomes; and how early intervention affects patients' health and health care experiences. Dr. Onega has particular interest in the integration of population health, health services research, registries, geospatial data, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and informatics -- particularly along the cancer control continuum.  She has ongoing projects within national consortia, as well as locally, using large databases, longitudinal cohorts, and registries. An emerging direction in Dr. Onega's lab is geoinformatics, exemplified by a SYNERGY project that uses natural language processing, machine learning, web-content mining, and GIS to ascertain geographic diffusion of new medical technology in near-real time.
