Alexandra S. Mulvey joined CRI’s communications team in June 2010 as science writer and has been associate director of communications since 2011. Prior to joining CRI, Alexandra was assistant director of foundation and corporate relations at The Rockefeller University, where she gained experience translating complex scientific language and concepts into understandable narrative for lay audiences for development and fundraising purposes. In addition to telling CRI’s scientific story in new and compelling ways, Alexandra is particularly interested in developing new strategies to convey CRI impact, to strengthen CRI’s brand identify and increase awareness of CRI’s work, and to enhance CRI’s outreach efforts to cancer patients and other community stakeholders.
From 2004 to 2006, Alexandra attended New York University’s John W. Draper Interdisciplinary Master’s Program, where she completed coursework toward a Master’s in Humanities and Social Thought with a concentration in the history of medicine. Her graduate research focused on the social history of cervical cancer in the 20th century. She holds a B.A. in Women’s Studies from Wellesley College, and is a graduate of Phillips Academy, Andover.
Alexandra considers herself a CRI “lifer” and is greatly excited about and deeply committed to CRI’s mission to realize the full promise and potential of immunotherapy to transform the treatment of all cancers. She also thinks that the science is really cool.
“Every day working at CRI is an intellectually challenging and emotionally rewarding experience. I feel lucky to be part of an organization that is doing such important work that is making a tangible difference for cancer patients.” – Alexandra
