LEXINGTON, Mass., April 03, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kaleido Biosciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: KLDO), a clinical-stage healthcare company with a chemistry-driven approach to leveraging the microbiome organ to treat disease and improve human health, today announced the appointment of Anne Prener, M.D., Ph.D., to its Board of Directors.

“We are thrilled to welcome Anne to our Board.

Dr. Prener has led companies and teams across several therapeutic areas, including a focus on rare diseases. As CEO of Freeline, a liver-directed gene therapy company, she scaled the company from preclinical stage to a fully integrated biotechnology organization, which included a broad, internally developed pipeline, two programs in clinical development and a commercial-scale, high-quality CMC and manufacturing platform. Prior to joining Freeline, she served as CEO of Gyroscope Therapeutics Ltd., a gene therapy company focused on eye diseases. Before that, Dr. Prener was Global Therapeutic Area Head of Hematology and Vice President, Clinical Research Hematology at Baxalta. During her time there, three new major product approvals in the U.S. and EU were secured along with a significant advancement in Baxalta’s hematology portfolio. Earlier in her career, Dr. Prener held several positions of increasing responsibility at Novo Nordisk, most recently serving as Senior Vice President, Hemophilia R&D Portfolio, where she was instrumental in building a portfolio of late stage and commercial hemophilia products.

Dr. Prener serves on the Boards of Directors of several life science companies, Rubius Therapeutics, Cellinta and Renovacor. She holds a Ph.D. in epidemiology and an M.D., both from the University of Copenhagen.

“With its differentiated approach to the microbiome and compelling human-centric discovery and development, Kaleido has the opportunity to redefine how we manage health and treat a broad range of diseases to impact patients’ lives. I look forward to working with the Board and talented leadership team as Kaleido continues to progress its programs and overall business,” said Dr. Prener.
