  • PhD, University of Rome

  • MPH, Columbia University


    Dr. Greco graduated at the University of Rome and trained in immunological research at the Superior Institute of Health in Italy.  As a biomedical researcher, Dr. Greco contributed with numerous and significant publications in the fields of cancer immunotherapy and HIV research. In 2005, Dr Greco joined the International Center for Health Outcomes and Innovation Research (InCHOIR) at Columbia University and in 2007 became assistant clinical professor of Health Policy and management at the Mailman School of Public Health . Dr. Greco joined Mount Sinai in 2008 as an Assistant Professor in the department of Population Health Science & Policy. Dr. Greco's research utilizes methodologies such as cost-effectiveness analysis and large dataset analysis. Using outcome and cost data stored in large insurance databases or the quality and safety data from medical event reporting systems, Dr. Greco has analyzed the effectiveness of different technologies, their diffusion, outcomes, costs and patterns of utilization in different segments of the population, and evaluated the economic impact of medical errors in the hospital. 


Screening for Vascular Diseases:

Identifying individuals at risk for vascular disease and examine the cost effectiveness criteria that would bring the use of screening for vascular disease into common general practice.

Economic impact of medical errors.
