Gila Neta, PhD, MPP is an epidemiologist and program director for Implementation Science in the Office of the Director in the Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences (DCCPS) at the National Cancer Institute (NCI). Dr. Neta serves as the NCI scientific lead for the trans-NIH funding announcements in Dissemination and Implementation Research in Health. She also leads the Global Implementation Science for Equitable Cancer Control initiative and develops research and training activities related to implementation science across the NCI and National Institutes of Health. Dr. Neta is Co-Chair of the NIH-sponsored Annual Conference on the Science of Dissemination and Implementation. She also chairs the NIH D&I working group, a trans-NIH initiative providing leadership and vision for implementation science across the NIH. She has a secondary appointment within the Epidemiology and Genomics Research Program and the NCI Center for Global Health.
Prior to joining DCCPS in May 2013, Dr. Neta conducted postdoctoral research within the Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics in the Radiation Epidemiology Branch, focusing on the potential unintended health effects of radiologic medical technologies. Dr. Neta received her Master of Public Policy degree at the University of California at Berkeley in 2001, and her Doctorate in Epidemiology from Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health in 2009. She conducted her doctoral dissertation work at the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute for Child Health and Human Development.
