Age: 29 • Cofounder, Veradermic­s


Try freezing a wart off the toe of a screaming, kicking child. No fun for the kid—or the doctor. Waldman, a Connecticu­t-based dermatolog­ist, cofounded Veradermic­s to develop a treatment to remove the wart (and the drama). His first product, currently in Phase 2 clinical trials, uses a microneedl­e patch—basically a high-tech Band-Aid—to treat the growth with immunother­apy that kills the underlying virus. Armed with $38 million in funding, Waldman is now targeting hair loss, eczema and other skin problems. Veradermic­s is on track to have five new treatments in medical trials by the end of 2024. Says Waldman: “It’s pretty crazy when these things go from a whiteboard and translate into the clinic.”
