Dr Emer Duffy focuses on digitization as ISP speaker in Antwerp



Dr Emer Duffy of Dublin City University (Ireland) spoke at the Royal Belgian Society for Cosmetic Chemists’(KBVCS/SRBCC) October Educational Seminar as part of the IFSCC International Speaker Programme. Dr Duffy’s topic was Digitalization in the Cosmetic Industry: “wearables for non-invasive skin research & efficacy testing of personal care claims”.

Dr Duffy’s research is about deciphering the odours emitted from our skin to develop new sensors for odour-based disease diagnosis. She is also interested in understanding the influence these odours can have on the fragrances we apply to our skin.

This education event also focused on the skin microbiome and was held at Antwerp’s Van der Valk Hotel.
