Dr. Francesca Rossi
Dr at Istituto di Fisica Applicata Nello Carrara
SPIE Involvement:
Area of Expertise:
light-tissue interactions , biomedical optics , ophthalmology , thermal effects , FEM model
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. She is also actively involved in innovation transfer activities in the framework of regional and national projects, and coordinator of the awareness node for CNR Florence in the national Competence Center Artes 4.0. She is the Italian contact point of two European CSA projects (FP7 OASIS, H2020 EPRISE), to support photonics companies in the Life Science in the innovation and internationalization pathway.
