(b)       Address of the Issuer’s Principal Executive Offices: 850 Maude Avenue, Mountain View, CA 94043.

 

Item 2.

 

(a)       Name of Person Filing: This Amendment No. 1 to Schedule 13G amends and restates the Statement on Schedule 13G filed by RA Capital Management, L.P. (“RA Capital”), Peter Kolchinsky, and Rajeev Shah (collectively, the “Reporting Persons”) on February 14, 2020.

 

The Common Stock reported herein includes 4,316,653 shares held by RA Capital Healthcare Fund, L.P. (the “Fund”) and 459,895 shares held in a separately managed account (the “Account”). RA Capital Healthcare Fund GP, LLC is the general partner of the Fund. The general partner of RA Capital is RA Capital Management GP, LLC, of which Dr. Kolchinsky and Mr. Shah are the controlling persons. RA Capital serves as investment adviser for the Fund and the Account and may be deemed a beneficial owner, for purposes of Section 13(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Act”), of any securities of the Issuer held by the Fund and the Account. The Fund has delegated to RA Capital the sole power to vote and the sole power to dispose of all securities held in the Fund’s portfolio, including the shares of the Issuer’s Common Stock reported herein.  Because the Fund has divested voting and investment power over the reported securities it holds and may not revoke that delegation on less than 61 days’ notice, the Fund disclaims beneficial ownership of the securities it holds for purposes of Section 13(d) of the Act and therefore disclaim any obligation to report ownership of the reported securities under Section 13(d) of the Act. As managers of RA Capital, Dr. Kolchinsky and Mr. Shah may be deemed beneficial owners, for purposes of Section 13(d) of the Act, of any securities of the Issuer beneficially owned by RA Capital. RA Capital, Dr. Kolchinsky, and Mr. Shah disclaim beneficial ownership of the securities reported in this Schedule 13G Statement (the “Statement”) other than for the purpose of determining their obligations under Section 13(d) of the Act, and the filing of the Statement shall not be deemed an admission that either RA Capital, Dr. Kolchinsky, or Mr. Shah is the beneficial owner of such securities for any other purpose.

 

(b)      Address of Principal Business Office: The principal business office of the Reporting Persons is c/o RA Capital Management, L.P., 200 Berkeley Street, 18th Floor, Boston, MA 02116.

 

(c)       Citizenship: RA Capital and the Fund are Delaware limited partnerships. Dr. Kolchinsky and Mr. Shah are United States citizens.

 

(d)       Title and Class of Securities: Common stock (“Common Stock”)
