With three new appointments, DermTech has filled key leadership roles at the company. Loren Clarke, MD is now Chief Medical Officer, Ray Bassi is Vice President, Sales, and Patrick Johnson is Vice President, Information Technology and Digital Systems.

Dr. Clarke, a board-certified Pathologist and Dermatopathologist with extensive experience in clinical dermatopathology and molecular diagnostics, succeeds Burkhard Jansen, MD, who has taken on a new role as Chief Medical Affairs Officer capitalizing on his strong track record of working with payors, clinicians, and medical societies. Dr. Clarke joins DermTech from Myriad Genetics, Inc. where he served as Senior Vice President for Medical Affairs and Medical Director for the Dermatology Division. 

 “I’m honored to lead the Medical Affairs, Clinical Research, and Regulatory teams at DermTech in our mission to improve the lives of millions by providing non-invasive precision dermatology solutions that enable individualized care,” says Dr. Clarke. “DermTech’s breakthrough technology is changing the diagnostic pathway to be less invasive, more accurate, and less expensive than the current pathway of surgical biopsy and histopathology. I look forward to contributing to DermTech’s success in this next phase of growth.”

Ray Bassi joins DermTech with more than 25 years of experience in the pharmaceutical and medical device industry. Prior to joining DermTech, Mr. Bassi served as Vice President, Sales at Dermira, Inc., where he led the sales organization in the commercial launch in the Dermatology space. Prior to joining Dermira, Inc., he served as Vice President, Sales at Allergan Medical, as well as in other sales leadership, sales, and marketing roles where he helped build high performance teams, markets, and brands.
