Tiffany Greco, PhD

Dr. Greco completed her undergraduate studies at William Paterson University before receiving her Ph.D. at the University of Maryland, Baltimore. She joined the Brain Injury Research Center and Department of Neurosurgery at UCLA in 2011 as a postdoctoral fellow and is now an Assistant Project Scientist and current Easton Brain Injury Fellow.

Dr. Greco is currently pursuing research on sex, hormones, brain energy metabolism and concussions. The vast majority of studies on concussion are conducted on male athletes, and there is strong evidence to suggest that men and women experience physiological differences in the way their bodies handle and heal from head injuries. Since one-third of athletes today are women, this is an area of research that is both unprecedented and vital for understanding how head trauma affects people differently and how brain health differs in women and men.
