About Cantero & BridgeBio Pharma

Cantero Therapeutics, formerly known as Orfan Biotech, is an affiliate of BridgeBio Pharma founded in 2017 to develop new therapies for diseases of hyperoxaluria. Based on the initial discoveries of its scientific founder, Dr. Eduardo Salido, at the University of La Laguna in the Canary Islands, Orfan Biotech has quickly developed new compounds to treat primary hyperoxaluria and related conditions.

BridgeBio is a biopharmaceutical company founded to discover, create, test, and deliver transformative medicines to treat patients who suffer from genetic diseases and cancers with clear genetic drivers. We bridge the gap between remarkable advancements in genetic science in academic institutions and the delivery of meaningful medicines to patients. Founded in 2015, the company has built a portfolio of 30+ drug development programs ranging from preclinical to late-stage development in multiple therapeutic areas including genetic dermatology, precision oncology, cardiology, endocrinology, neurology, pulmonology and renal disease, with two approved drugs.

Our focus on scientific excellence and rapid execution aims to translate today’s discoveries into tomorrow’s medicines. We have U.S. offices in San Francisco, Palo Alto, Boston, New York, and Raleigh, with small satellites in other parts of the country. We also have international offices in Montreal, Canada and Zug, Switzerland, and are expanding across Europe.
