My Research

Joseph Ladapo is a board-certified physician and health policy researcher whose primary research interests include assessing the cost-effectiveness of radiological technologies and reducing the population burden of cardiovascular disease. He graduated from Wake Forest University (magna cum laude), and received his MD from Harvard Medical School and his PhD in Health Policy from Harvard Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. He completed his clinical training in internal medicine at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. During residency, he was honored with the Daniel Ford Award for health services and outcomes research from Johns Hopkins University. He has also been a regular columnist for the Harvard Focus since 2005, where he discusses his experiences on the medical wards and perspectives on current health policy issues. Dr. Ladapoa??s current research focuses on evaluating the cost-effectiveness of diagnostic technologies for cardiovascular disease and assessing the clinical and economic implications of interventions targeted at reducing cardiovascular disease risk burden. His past work has examined the cost-effectiveness of cardiac computed tomography (CT) in the evaluation of patients with suspected coronary artery disease, and the impact of smoking cessation programs in high-risk patients. He has also explored the factors driving hospital decision-making in the adoption of high-resolution cardiac CT.
