Notes jotted down from meetings and conversations are written on the windows of Recursion Pharmaceuticals' offices in Research Park at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, Monday, December 8, 2014. Recursion Pharmaceuticals is a start-up company at the University of Utah and It's scientists and engineers are taking an unusual approach to drug development, and hope to develop 100 drugs in 10 years. The company says it's strategy is two-fold. Instead of targeting specific molecular targets for a disease, Recursion makes a human cellular model of the disease and then targets the resulting phenotype (its observable characteristics of the cell) by testing the ability of compounds to restore misshapen and diseased human cells to their normal appearance and function. Doing so is a good predictor of a drug’s success or failure.  And instead of starting from scratch with a new compound, their business model is to partner with manufacturers to salvage and repurpose drugs that passed early safety trials but never made it to market.
