Denise Falcone holds a Ph.D. degree, which she received after having completed her studies at the Dermatology Department of Radboud University Medical Center in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. Her research focused on unraveling pathomechanisms of sensitive skin and light-based skin conditioning after acute disruption of the skin barrier and inflammation. This work involved in vivo human skin models, immunohistochemical analysis, and non-invasive skin measurements, including confocal Raman micro-spectroscopy. Her scientific work received the Albert Kligman Young Investigator Award at the World Congress of the International Society for Biophysics and Imaging of the Skin (ISBS) in 2016. Denise obtained a Master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering from Politecnico di Milano, Italy, specializing in biomedical signal and image processing, and participated in an exchange program at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Switzerland. Currently, Dr. Falcone holds the position of Clinical Research Coordinator at Erasmus MC, Department of Dermatology in Rotterdam, Netherlands. Her primary role is to coordinate trial-related activities for sponsor- and investigator-initiated studies (Phase II-IV).
