On July 8, 2022, Eli Casdin notified Absci Corporation (the “Company”) that he would resign from the Company’s Board of Directors and all committees thereof, effective as of July 11, 2022. Mr. Casdin resigned from the Board due in part to the focus on the number of public company boards on which an individual director sits and to redirect time to his primary professional responsibilities at Casdin Capital. Mr. Casdin’s resignation is not the result of any disagreement with the Company on any matter relating to its operations, policies or practices.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
