Dr. Sudarshan Hebbar, Chief Medical Officer, CalciMedica talks about developing drugs that are focused on targeting CRAC channels, calcium release activated calcium channels, in order to modulate these channels to help treat diseases that have a significant inflammatory component.  Initially developed drugs for acute pancreatitis targeting both the pancreas and the lung.
