Supersonic Superstar – Dr. Robb

This week’s Supersonic Superstar is the one and only Dr. Robb Akridge, Ph.D. Dr. Robb is the co-founder of Clarisonic and is Vice President of Clinical Affairs. Besides being the “face of Clarisonic,” Dr. Robb oversees the design and implementation of all in-house clinical studies, external research contracts and clinical trials. He is the primary liaison between key dermatology opinion leaders and researchers. Prior to coming to Pacific Bioscience Laboratories, Dr. Robb was the principal scientist at Sonicare, and held clinical trial management positions at ICOS Corporation and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.

A graduate of the University of Texas in Austin, he holds a Bachelor of Science degree as well as a Master of Science degree in Biology from Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos, and a Doctorate in Microbiology with an emphasis in Infectious Disease and Immunology from Texas A&M University. When he’s not in the lab Dr. Robb can be seen hob-nobbing with celebrities at events around the nation and is quickly becoming recognizable as the face behind Clarisonic. We couldn’t do what we do without Dr. Robb so we found it fitting that he be crowned the inaugural Supersonic Superstar.

Thank you Dr. Robb for all that you do!
