Tim Ahfeldt

Vice President of Advanced Translational Modeling

Tim Ahfeldt joined Recursion from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, where he was an Assistant Professor in the Neuroscience and Neurology departments.Tim trained at Harvard University in the laboratories of Chad Cowan and Lee Rubin, where he pioneered methods to generate human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) and use them in novel differentiation methods. In particular, he has used hiPSCs to model and understand the impact of genetic risk factors in the development of metabolic and neurodegenerative diseases through the derivation of white and brown adipocytes as well as massively scalable neuronal organoid models.As the Neuroscience Fellow at Recursion, Tim is shaping the Neuroscience scientific strategy and spearheading the expansion of the Recursion OS to include multi-modal maps of the human brain. Tim brings translational neurobiology leadership to the preclinical CNS portfolio.When not in the lab, Tim loves cooking for his family and friends, all-season outdoor activities, and PC gaming.
