Rich Dixon, PhD

CMC Analytical Lead


Rich is the Analytical Lead for the CMC team at Precision BioSciences. He comes to Precision from Heat Biologics, where he served as Director of Analytical Sciences for three years and focused on making allogeneic cell immunotherapies for cancer. Previously, Rich specialized in analytical development for protein pharmaceuticals while working at Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies and KBI Biopharma. He earned his BS in Chemistry from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (Go Heels!) and PhD in Physical Chemistry from the University of Virginia. In his spare time, Rich enjoys coaching his son’s teams (baseball, basketball, and flag football), spending quality time with his two kids, and rooting for the Heels, Redskins, and O’s. Beware when asking him about using DNA testing for genealogy or his fantasy football teams – you don’t want to get him started!
