Our Leadership

Dr. Desmond Adler

President of Cardiovascular

Desmond joined Gentuity in early 2021 as President of Cardiovascular with the personal goal of enabling interventional cardiologists to improve how they care for their patients. Desmond sees the convergence of advanced imaging technology, artificial intelligence, and user-centric design as critical to achieving this goal and sees the Gentuity platform as uniquely positioned to deliver these innovations to the clinic. Desmond has over 20 years of experience in the biomedical optics industry and has contributed to new product launches in cardiology, ophthalmology, gastroenterology, and pulmonology. During his time at LightLab Imaging and St. Jude Medical, he led the development of previous generations of intravascular imaging systems. He also led the development and commercialization of drug-device combination therapies for rare ophthalmic diseases as General Manager and VP R&D of Corneal Health for Glaukos Corp.

Desmond feels that working in medical technology represents a unique way to contribute to society while also experiencing lifelong learning, enjoying professional growth, and forming personal bonds with exceptional individuals from all over the world. He holds a BSc in electrical engineering from the University of Alberta and a PhD in electrical engineering and computer science from MIT.
