Chris Ehrlich, Partner at Interwest Ventures, will join existing board members Ronald Cape (PureTech Partner, founder of Cetus, former Board Member Neutrogena) and Daphne Zohar (Follica CEO, Founder & Managing Partner of PureTech Ventures).

"Our technologies for creating and manipulating hair follicles position us to treat, and perhaps eventually cure, androgenetic alopecia, other hair loss conditions, and related follicular disorders such as acne," said Dr. Rox Anderson, Professor of Dermatology at Harvard Medical School, Director of the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital, and Co- founder and Scientific Advisory Board Chair of Follica. Anderson invented and developed laser hair removal and infrared confocal laser microscopy, and has made important contributions to photodynamic therapy and tattoo removal.
