The Navarini Lab's research

is focused on understanding and quantifying

the biologic and visual features of inflammatory skin conditions.

The focus of our activities is the investigation of inflammatory skin disease, especially neutrophil-mediated inflammatory dermatoses (NMID). We have two groups of investigators working on projects addressing genetic & pathophysiological questions (NMID-Team) (//, as well as a newer Vision-Team (// whose aim is to transform visual information into quantifiable phenotypic data.

Many skin diseases and questions related to them cannot be addressed effectively working alone. In fact, most of our research is done in collaborations. We are glad to be part of the Swiss Dermatology Network of Targeted Therapy (SDNTT), International Rare and Severe Psoriasis Expert Network (EIRASPEN, PI Navarini), and have helped to start the international registry for toxic epidermal necrolysis (IRTEN). Also, we help to drive forward the production of Swiss clinical guidelines including for psoriasis and rosacea.
