In 2004, she received the title of PhD in Environmental Science at the Department of Science and Advanced Technologies (UPO). Currently, she is Associate Professor of General Microbiology at the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences (UPO). Her main interests include biosurfactant-based coatings for the inhibition of microbial adhesion and multi-species biofilms on materials for medical use, the lipoaspirate as an antimicrobial and bioactive scaffold in wound healing, the activity of cosmetic products preservatives on skin microbiota and the study of the antimicrobial and anti-biofilm activity of Guayule resin.

She graduated in Medicine and Surgery in 2000, and then completed her residency in Dermatology and Venereology in 2005 at the University of Piemonte Orientale, Novara. In 2007 she obtained the II Level Surgical Dermatology Master at the University of Siena. In 2009 she received the title of PhD in Clinical and Experimental Medicine at the UPO, and started a post-doc fellowship at the Molecular Virology Lab (Prof Gariglio), UPO, with a project on the promoting role of Beta-Papillomaviruses in skin carcinogenesis.
Since 2012 she is working at the Dermatology Unit, University-Hospital Maggiore della Carità Novara. Her main fields of interest are represented by cutaneous oncology (including melanoma and Non-Melanoma Skin Cancers), and the dermatologic management of Organ Transplant Patients. She is currently involved in clinical trials on the Hedgehog-pathway inhibitors for the treatment of Basal Cell Carcinoma.
the characterization of the molecular basis of metabolic diseases, mainly focusing on the investigation of inflammatory pathways and identification of mediators of inter-organ communication in these settings;
the study of the cellular mechanisms at the basis of the neurological complications of diabetes;
the pharmacological modulation of these pathways aimed at the prevention/management of the health consequences of metabolic related inflammation (“metaflammation”), as one of the key drivers of metabolic disorders and related neurological/cardiovascular co-morbidities.
Maurizio Rinaldi obtained a PhD degree in Elementary Particles Physics at the International School for Advanced Studies in Trieste (Italy).
Afterwards he got Postdoctoral fellowships at Harvard University, Cambridge (MA), USA and a Postdoctoral fellowship at the Milan University (Italy).
He as been researcher of Mathematical Analysis (1995-1999) and subsequently from 1999 Associate Professor of Geometry and from 2004 in Complementary Mathematics.
He taught in Harvard University, Università degli studi di Trieste, and Università del Piemonte Orientale.
He worked in different areas of mathematical physics, geometry and analysis.
He also devoted his attention to the teaching of mathematics to students of not math-oriented undergraduate courses.
Currently he works as a mathematician and statistician with research groups of his University applying statistical learning techniques, bioinformatics and simulation of complex systems in different topics of research mainly in the chemical-biological area.

Passionate about clinical and laboratory research, he is involved in several projects aiming to solve pharmacological and/or epidemiological problems especially in thrombosis and hemostasis. Thanks to his translational view, i.e. from basic research to post-marketing pharmacovigilance, of the pharmaceutical and biomedical market, his collaborations with key opinion leaders but also with field practitioners, Dr. Jonathan Douxfils puts its expertise and know-how at the services of projects aiming to improve the safety and effectiveness of therapeutic agents in order to promote public health.
Dr. Florence Libon graduated as medical doctor in 2012 and as a Dermatologist in 2016. She received her PhD degree on physiological question between vitamin D and the skin in 2018. She authored 18 articles referenced in Pubmed/Medline and gave many presentations at international dermatology congresses. She is currently head of clinic in the Dermatology Department of the University Hospital of Liège in Belgium. Her clinical interests are mainly allergologic skin diseases, including allergic contact dermatitis and atopic dermatitis. Furthermore, she teaches dermatology and venereology to medical students and resident in dermatology. She also coaches several master thesis of medical student. She is also actively involved in as investigator in clinical studies evaluating new systemic biological treatments related to Dermatology. Dr F. Libon is member of the Royal Belgium Society of Dermatology and Venereology.
