EQRx Pharmaceutical Company

EQRx is a new type of pharmaceutical company committed to developing and delivering innovative medicines to patients around the world at radically lower prices.

Launched in January 2020, EQRx is purpose-built, at scale, with a growing catalog of medicines in development in high-cost drug categories and a growing number of emerging partnerships with leading payers and providers.

Every day, people are diagnosed with life-changing conditions, but often cannot afford the medicines they need.

Through leveraging cutting-edge science and technology and strategic partnerships with stakeholders from across the healthcare system, EQRx aims to provide innovative, patent-protected medicines more efficiently and cost-effectively than ever before.

This is a vision aligned with that long held by Jameel Family and most recently expressed by the creation of Abdul Latif Jameel Health, and in late-2020, the JIMCO Life Sciences fund became an enthusiastic investor in EQRx and further increased our commitment in 2021.
