Adelle Walker is now Vice President of Consumer Products at DermTech. Inc. as the company continues its investment in bringing its precision genomics platform to the skin health and wellness categories.

Ms. Walker brings more than 20 years of experience to DermTech, having led category-defining products at Allergan in both Medical Dermatology and Aesthetics, SkinMedica, Candela Laser Systems, and SENTÉ Labs. She has a proven track record in launching new products, building markets and using a data-driven and analytical approach to grow brands.

“Adelle is a tremendous addition to the DermTech team,” says Todd Wood, chief commercial officer of DermTech. “Her deep consumer and e-commerce expertise in skin care health and aesthetic categories will allow us to expand our technology to a consumer audience interested in understanding their skin health at the DNA level.”

DermTech has successfully launched its DermTech Melanoma Test using Smart Stickers™ to assess suspicious moles for selected genomic markers associated with melanoma. The company is also developing UV damage DNA risk assessment products to serve patients seeking better skin health.

“Consumers want more definitive information on the health of their skin so that they can more appropriately protect, correct and restore it,” says Ms. Walker. “With DermTech’s technology, consumers can have a clearer picture of what is happening at the DNA/RNA level, empowering them to make more proactive decisions both at home and in their dermatologists' offices.”
