Giovanni Pellacani practices research mainly in the field of dermato-oncology, non invasive diagnosis, cutaneous physiopathology, and skin bio-engineering for the evaluation of inflammatory diseases, since 1995. In particular, melanoma and pigmented skin lesions, their early identification by means of dermoscopy in combination with system for image analysis and automated diagnosis, and in vivo reflectance confocal microscopy for the study of cytological and architectural aspects of the skin and of skin lesions, in correlation with dermoscopy and histopathology are the present and most relevant fields of research.
His main research interest is in the field of in vivo confocal microscopy for the diagnosis and characterization mostly of skin cancer. Melanoma features have been described and validated. Histopathology correlation, immuno-histochemistry for identification of bio-markers and genetics for characterization of familial syndromes and somatic mutations related with different tumor aspects and aggressiveness represent other areas of research. Moreover, the application of new technologies integrated with other imaging modalities, including optical coherence tomography and speckle variance tomography, has been developed.
