Personal profile

Research Interests

Dr. Greenland is the Harry W. Dingman Professor of Cardiology and Professor of Preventive Medicine at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine and a Senior Editor for JAMA. He held previous positions as Department Chair of Preventive Medicine at Northwestern, Executive Associate Dean for Clinical and Translational Research, and Director of Northwestern’s Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA). He has been actively engaged as a cardiovascular epidemiologist in the MESA Study, the CARDIA Study, the Women’s Health Initiative, the Chicago Heart Association Detection Project in Industry, and the Chicago Western Electric Study. He is a longstanding member of the NHLBI Observational Study Monitoring Board for the Framingham Heart Study and a member of the Board of External Experts of NHLBI. Dr. Greenland’s research has helped to shape cardiovascular care guidelines around the world. His work, which has been cited thousands of times, was among the first to reveal that women are more likely to die from heart attacks than men, and his studies illustrated that major risk factors almost always precede heart attacks, overcoming the “50% myth.” He has also contributed to enhanced diagnostic and preventive care, showing the importance of coronary calcium scanning for cardiovascular disease risk prediction. He has been recognized multiple times as a Thomson Reuters Highly Cited Researcher in clinical medicine. In 2016, he received a National Mentoring Award from the Council on Epidemiology and Prevention of the American Heart Association. He also received the David Rogers Award from the AAMC in the same year, recognizing his career-long impact on the health and health care of the United States, and in 2017, he received the James Bruce Award from the American College of Physicians for his longstanding research and clinical impact in preventive medicine. He is an elected member of the Association of American Physicians and an elected Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians (London).
