Ron Alfa

Senior Vice President, Translational Discovery

Ron holds an M.D. and a Ph.D. (Neurosciences) from Stanford University and a master’s degree from University College London. Throughout his education, he has developed molecular therapeutics for Alzheimer's disease, discovered hormones of metabolism and puzzled over the basis of the placebo effect.

A California native, he traded the Valley for the Slopes to follow his passion for accelerating therapeutic discovery with Recursion. When he's not working, Ron enjoys taking on various projects which some might construe as questionably different from working.
