Todd Plott, MD (Dallas/Fort Worth, US). The Advisory Board is composed of key clinical investigators and industry veterans in the field who support and guide the development of unique topical medications based on our water-free hyliQ technology platform. Mr. Dow has been named Chairman of the Advisory board.

Frank Loescher, PhD, CEO Dermaliq, said, “we are pleased to welcome four highly respected members to our Scientific and Medical Advisory Board as we now advance three programs into the clinic: DLQ01 (Androgenetic Alopecia), DLQ02 (Psoriasis) and DLQ03 (Bacterial Skin and Soft Tissue Infections). The vast clinical and research expertise in dermatology of this group is invaluable for shaping Dermaliq’s current and future product development strategy.
