Pinar Avci received her MD/Ph.D. degrees from Semmelweis University, Hungary and completed two years of her dermatology residency training in Germany. During her postdoctoral fellowship at Wellman Center for Photomedicine/Massachusetts General Hospital, she investigated potential applications of novel imaging and therapeutic modalities such as two-photon excitation microscopy and photodynamic therapy for diagnosis and/or treatment of skin diseases. Her latest project during her residency training involved integration of machine learning algorithms into ex vivo confocal microscopy. She is the author of 40 peer-reviewed publications and editor of 3 books in the field of photomedicine and nanotechnology. Before going to medical school, Pinar studied economics and worked at Deloitte. Combining her experience in management and health care, she is currently interested in integration of digital tools into the clinical workflow to increase efficiency.
