Gilead Sciences was founded by Micheal L. Riordan in 1987 under the name Oligogen. The company primarily developed antiviral medicines and then focused on researching a form of gene therapy called antisense therapy. Gilead Sciences quickly grew from there and subsequently went public on the NASDAQ in 1992. They then began to produce a variety of medicines and pharmaceutical products, including HIV and hepatitis C virus treatments.
