This individual will support Calcilytix Therapeutics and Orfan Biotech, both subsidiaries of BridgeBio Pharma.

Calcilytix Therapeutics is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on addressing disorders of calcium homeostasis at the source. Our product candidate is an orally-administered small molecule that specifically inhibits the calcium-sensing receptor, hypothesized to restore normal serum calcium and lower urine calcium.

Orfan Biotech was 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. Currently, the company’s focus is on the genetic and rare primary disease hyperoxaluria (PH1). A disease for which the only cure is a double kidney and liver transplant.

BridgeBio finds, develops, and delivers breakthrough medicines for genetic diseases. The company bridges remarkable advancements in genetic science with the entrepreneurial engine required to rapidly create lifesaving medicines for patients with unmet needs. Founded in 2015 by a team of industry veterans, the company has built a portfolio of 20 transformative drugs ranging from pre-clinical to late-stage development in multiple therapeutic areas, including genetic dermatology, oncology, cardiology, neurology, endocrinology, renal disease, and ophthalmology. The company’s focus on scientific excellence and rapid execution aim to translate today’s discoveries into tomorrow’s medicines. We have offices in San Francisco, Palo Alto, Boston, New York, and Raleigh with small satellites in other parts of the country.
