Company Overview (100 words)

Recursion Pharmaceuticals is an emerging biotechnology company that combines experimental biology, automation, and artificial intelligence in a massively parallel system to quickly and efficiently identify treatments for any disease which can be modeled at the cellular level. Recursion’s platform has been used to identify potential new treatments for genetic, inflammatory and oncological diseases, and is being applied broadly in additional areas of biology including infectious disease and diseases of aging. Founded in 2013, Recursion’s tech-first approach will enable treatments for diseases in a fraction of the typical timeframe and at a fraction of the cost and ultimately lead the company in building a roadmap of human cellular biology.

Meet the Founders

While working under the guidance of Dr. Dean Li at the University of Utah, Chris Gibson saw firsthand how the traditional model of reductionist biology was time-consuming and sometimes ineffective for drug discovery. Gibson, therefore, focused his dissertation on taking an engineering approach to develop novel drug screening methodologies that harnessed and embraced biological systems to guide insights. During the IGNITE summer program at Stanford, Gibson was sparked with the idea of replicating his approach at scale across hundreds or even thousands of diseases. Together with his undergraduate friend Blake Borgeson, who specializes in machine learning in biology, and Dr. Dean Li, the three founded Recursion Pharmaceuticals.
