CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — July 06, 2022 — Caraway Therapeutics today announced that the Company will be participating in the William Blair Biotech Focus Conference, taking place July 13, 2022, in New York City. Caraway’s Chief Executive Officer, Martin D. Williams, will participate in a fireside chat with Myles Minter, PhD, Biotech Equity Research Analyst at William Blair, to discuss recent advances in the Company’s lead program targeting the lysosomal cation channel, TRPML1, for the treatment of GBA-Parkinson’s disease (GBA-PD) and other rare genetic diseases.
“We have demonstrated that enhancing TRPML1 function boosts lysosomal function, enhances key lipid recycling pathways that are compromised in GBA-PD patients, and speeds up the clearance of toxic materials that accumulate in a number of genetically defined diseases,” said Williams. “I look forward to speaking with Myles about updates to our TRPML1 program, as well as engaging with investors at the William Blair conference.”
