Excerpt from the Press Release:
BERKELEY, Calif., Jan. 05, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Carmot Therapeutics, Inc. (Carmot), a clinical-stage biotechnology company developing disease-modifying therapies for metabolic diseases, today announced its intent to spin off its Chemotype Evolution (CE) discovery platform in the fields of oncology, immunology and inflammation, to a separate and new company, Kimia Therapeutics (Kimia). Carmot will focus on metabolic disease by advancing its proprietary portfolio of clinical and preclinical therapeutics modulating gut hormones and related energy homeostasis mechanisms, while preserving exclusive access to the CE discovery platform for metabolic disease through a partnership with Kimia.
Carmot’s co-founder and current Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Stig K. Hansen, PhD, will become CEO of Kimia. Heather Turner, JD, Carmot’s current Chief Operating Officer, has been appointed CEO of Carmot. Ms. Turner has over 20 years of leadership experience in life science companies including senior operational roles and legal expertise.
The spin-off enables Carmot to focus on clinical-stage candidates CT-388 and CT-868 (dual GLP-1/GIP receptor modulators), additional Investigational New Drug (IND)-stage programs including CT-996 (an oral, small molecule GLP-1 receptor agonist) and a long-acting peptide tyrosine-tyrosine (PYY) analogue. Both CT-388 and CT-868 have recently demonstrated clinically meaningful data in obese adults with or without type 2 diabetes.
