Dunedin-based biotechnology firm Pacific Edge has appointed Jackie Walker to head its US operations, which will launch its bladder cancer test later in the year.

Ms Walker was president and chief executive of specialty dental firm OSspray, a UK headquartered biotech start-up, which she took to profitability.

She has 25 years experience in the life sciences and medical devices sector.

Ms Walker will be based in Pennsylvania where Pacific Edge hopes to have its processing facility built by September and operating by March next year.
