Dr. Borroni completed his residency in Dermatology and Venereology at the Sapienza University of Rome in 2006.

From 2008 to 2009 he worked at the Pharmacogenomics laboratory of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology ETH Zurich, Switzerland.

In 2010 he obtained a PhD in Molecular and Regenerative Medicine from the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia; he was then awarded a post-doctoral fellowship at the Fondazione I.R.C.C.S. Policlinico “San Matteo” of Pavia, Italy, where he worked until May 2017.

Scientific and Research Interests

His current research interests include the clinical development of a novel imaging device for non-invasive diagnosis and follow-up of neoplastic and inflammatory skin diseases and the cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in chronic inflammatory diseases of the skin.

He has authored or co-authored more than 50 publications in internationally peer-reviewed journals, contributed to several monographs and book chapters and given invited lectures at national and international conferences. He serves as ad-hoc referee for international scientific journals in the field of dermatology.
