Dr. Veronese Marta Bertolini, Chief Scientific Officer and Deputy Director General of the Monasterium Laboratory in Münster, Germany, has been awarded the Martha Schwarzkopf Prize for Women in Science, an award created by Henkel for the best scientists in the field of trichology and dermatology research.
“I am honored to receive this award – Bertolini commented – The character of Martha Schwarzkopf is a huge inspiration to me, not only because she was a pioneer in applied research to hair care and a successful entrepreneur, but above all because she has the ability to convey the passion and value of his work to many From colleagues and colleagues.
The 36-year-old doctor, originally from Legnago, specializes in studying the immune system of hair follicles and its changes, which is responsible for diseases such as alopecia areata that causes hair loss.
