Formerly Dr. Mammone was a research scientist in the department of biochemistry at Stony Brook. He received his Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry from the State University of New York at Stony Brook, his Ph.D. in molecular and cellular biology from St. John’s University in New York and his MBA from Dowling College in New York.
He originally joined Estee Lauder Companies in 1986 and was instrumental in the creation of The Skin Biology Lab, a research group in Melville, New York that grows cells in order to study the aging process and the biology of the human skin. Overseeing eight scientists in the lab, Dr. Mammone examined everything from apoptosis in the skin and skin pigmentation to hair biology.
In 1996 he started the Natural Products lab that directs research to discover new active ingredients and their use in all Estee Lauder treatment Products. He has a deep knowledge of all our active ingredients and their mechanism of action.
In 2009, Dr. Mammone formed a new department called Skin Physiology and Pharmacology at Estee Lauder R&D. This group is responsible for investigating the physiology of skin and hair. They also investigate new delivery systems for skin and the potential of new ingredients to effect hair and skin function.
Dr. Mammone has authored over 50 papers and posters on skin biology and physiology and has also published over 30 patents on new treatment technologies.
