Recursion (Nasdaq: RXRX), the clinical-stage biotechnology company industrializing drug discovery by decoding biology, today reported business updates and financial results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ending December 31, 2021.

“2021 was an exciting year for Recursion, in which we closed one of the largest biotechnology initial public offerings in history; expanded our partnership with Bayer; entered into a transformational partnership with Roche and Genentech; received Fast Track and Orphan Drug Designations from the FDA for our NF2 and FAP programs, respectively; readied several programs to initiate clinical trials; expanded our therapeutics pipeline with numerous programs in oncology; and built and began to utilize our supercomputer, BioHive1,” said Recursion Co-Founder & CEO Chris Gibson, Ph.D. “As we applied our mapping and navigating capabilities to explore complex biology, we discovered and advanced many new scientific and business opportunities. We are excited for 2022 as we work to transition more biology and chemistry from maps to medicines.”
