LA JOLLA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 25, 2022--
DermTech, Inc. (NASDAQ: DMTK) (“DermTech” or the “Company”), a leader in precision dermatology enabled by a non-invasive skin genomics platform, announced today that it is participating in San Diego nonprofit Connect’s inaugural Five.Ten.Thirty event. Taking place on April 28, 2022 at Petco Park, the gathering is a celebration of San Diego’s first annual ‘Innovation Day,’ recently declared by Mayor Todd Gloria.
The event will bring together the city’s most innovative business leaders and companies working towards a more robust and inclusive economy across the region. Five.Ten.Thirty is the largest innovation celebration in San Diego history, with more than 100 local life science and technology companies on display, showcasing their cutting-edge technologies and business solutions.
DermTech will showcase its translational medicine service offering, DermTech Stratum™, which provides research and development partners with the opportunity to non-invasively collect skin samples to identify biomarkers of disease and subgroups of disease, stratify patients based on genomic and proteomic profiles, enrich for responders in a population, and predict and track responses to therapeutic intervention.
Recently, DermTech Stratum added a new research use test to differentiate two chronic inflammatory skin diseases, atopic dermatitis (AD) and psoriasis (PS). Atopic dermatitis and psoriasis are the two most common inflammatory diseases globally, affecting approximately 10% and 3% of the U.S. population respectively. The new AD vs. PS test will allow researchers to differentiate the inflammatory signatures of atopic dermatitis from psoriasis and others in potential clinical trial participants. Additional research use assays are currently in development for other inflammatory skin diseases and skin cancers.
“We are excited to join some of the San Diego region’s most innovative companies and creative minds to celebrate Innovation Day,” said Michael Howell, Ph.D., chief scientific officer of DermTech. “San Diego is a growing leader in biotechnology and life sciences; we look forward to showcasing the advancements that DermTech has made in the precision and personalized dermatology category.”
Five.Ten.Thirty is expected to draw thousands of attendees, including key leaders, company teams, local government agencies, angel investors, venture-backed CEOs and more.
