Profile Summary

Francesca Rossi main interest concerns light-tissue interactions. Her current research focuses on the design of innovative medical devices, in collaboration with medical doctors and photonics companies. Light-based devices are opening a new frontier in the medical field as they may be used to induce several effects on tissues, allowing to design new surgical, therapeutic and diagnostic approaches in a variety of fields (e.g. Ophthalmology, Dermatology, and Neurosurgery). In this framework, she is the scientific coordinator of Regional, National and European projects. She authored over than 120 scientific publications. She is also inventor of 8 patents. She is currently Researcher at the Institute of Applied Physics “Nello Carrara”, of the Italian National Research Council.
