Luigi Naldi

Luigi Naldi
Dermatologist. After having worked for many years at
Ospedali Riuniti of Bergamo (now Papa Giovanni XXIII Hospital), since July 3 2017, he has become the director of the complex unit of Dermatology at San Bortolo Hospital in Vicenza. He is convinced that research and clinical practice cannot be separate. He has been an investigator with the Istituto Mario Negri of Milan and Visiting Professor at the University of Geneva. He has been appointed a honorary member of the SocietÚ Franšaise de Dermatologie and Director of Centro Studi GISED. His challenge is to do research in Italy independently from industrial interests and outside the usual appointed places such as the university. He evidently succeeds thanks to a splendid and vital heterogeneous working group. Long-live freedom!

Elena Pezzolo

Elena Pezzolo

Young specialist in Dermatology and Venereology in collaboration with the University of Rotterdam and Bern. My field of interest mainly concerns the epidemiology of dermatological diseases, of which little is known. My work aims, in particular, to use the power of clinical data - collected in different countries - to answer key questions in the field of dermatology. I am always interested in new national and international collaborations, as new ideas arise from interaction and the work of a qualified team enhances scientific research.
