Bill Gates has joined an existing investor syndicate to lead a $21 million expansion of a series B round for Kallyope Inc. (New York, N.Y.).

Kallyope has now raised $87 million in the round and $131 million overall as it develops small molecules against undisclosed targets in the gut-brain axis.

The company previously disclosed its lead programs in metabolic disorders, such as obesity and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), and neurological diseases including mood disorders and Parkinson’s disease (see "Data-Driven").

Existing investors Lux Capital, The Column Group, Polaris Partners, Illumina Ventures, Alexandria Venture Investments, Euclidean Capital and Two Sigma Investments took part in the expansion.
