Davide Libero Vetrano is a medical doctor from Italy, specialized in geriatric medicine at the Catholic University of Rome, with a PhD in geriatric epidemiology earned at Karolinska Institutet. Davide is currently a postdoctoral fellow at the Aging Research Center of Karolinska Institutet, in the research group of professor Laura Fratiglioni.

His main research interests are:

Multimorbidity development and its prognosis. Multimorbidity, the co-occurrence of multiple diseases in the same individual, it the most common conditions encountered in older people. During the past years, Davide focused his attention on the definition of multimorbidity and its measurement in older individuals. Together with a group of colleagues from KI and other international Institutions, they refined the concept of multimorbidity clusters and that of speed of multimorbidity development. They investigate the impact of multimorbidity clusters on several health-related outcomes, and they recently started looking at the risk factors and determinants (i.e., psychosocial, biological etc.) of fast disease accumulation.

Multidimensional assessment of health and phenotypic age in older people. Aging is a complex and heterogeneous process which greatly departs from the linearity of passing time. The group combines clinical, biological, functional and sociodemographic information a) to build reliable prognostic tools for risk stratification; b) to build measures of phenotypic age; c) to identify homogeneous groups of individuals with specific needs, that may benefit from given preventive and therapeutic interventions. The combination of information on disease status with functional parameters (physical and cognitive) and frailty status has been investigated in several studies Davide authored and co-authored.
