Business of Biotech - Founders' Tales
Richard Goold, CEO, Station X
Please join me for the latest installment of Founders' Tales, our series on entrepreneurs, and start up companies. I'm pleased to announce this meetup featuring Richard D. Goold, CEO of Station X. Richard is a serial entrepreneur, scientist, executive, and all around nice guy. He'll talk about Station X, how they got started, what they do, and the wacky wonderful world of entrepreneurship.
Richard D. Goold is the CEO and a founder of Station X, a startup developing software products for scientists and clinicians who work with large-scale human genome information in either a research or clinical setting, enabling them to extract maximal biological meaning from complex genomic data. Richard has a Ph.D. in Pharmacology and has been in genomics since 1991. He built the automation and bioinformatics arm of one of the first NIH-funded genome centers, the Human Genome Mapping Center at UCSF/Stanford. He led the development of databases and systems to disseminate mapping data to GenBank and GDB. Joining Incyte in 1995, he oversaw the gene mapping program, data analysis and the development of the commercial gene mapping database product, as well as Incyte's programs in full-length human gene sequencing, microbial genome sequencing, microbial microarrays and SNP discovery, including the associated data analysis pipelines and commercial database products. Richard left Incyte to co-found Prospect Genomics, where he served as President until its successful merger with Structural Genomix.
As an added bonus, Station X is hiring, so if you're looking to hear more about a great little company doing great science, and having a great time doing it - this is one you won't want to miss!
