Yolanda Chong

Senior Vice President of Biology

In 2011, Yolanda was recruited to Janssen Pharmaceuticals with Johnson and Johnson to apply high-dimensional imaging approaches to their small molecule discovery pipeline. In 2017, she transitioned to Recursion to further advance this approach for small molecule therapeutics.

After completing her Ph.D. in plant molecular biology from the University of Toronto in 2007, she joined the Saccharomyces cerevisiae omics team at the Donnelly Centre for Cellular and Biomolecular Research, headed by Brenda Andrews and Charlie Boone. During her free time, Yolanda likes to spend time with her family and garden.
