Following a two-year stint as chief strategy officer for Biogen, Adam Koppel took a new job last June helming Bain Capital’s investments in biotech and life sciences. And now he’s gathering the cash for a new fund.

Koppel’s listed in the Form D filed with the SEC for Bain Capital Life Sciences today, where he’s taken the role of managing director. And while it doesn’t list an amount, Bain has a long history of making a splash in whatever field it’s working in, with more than $75 billion in managed capital.

The move was a return to the private equity group, where Koppel had worked in healthcare for 11 years before joining George Scangos’ team at Biogen.  And he’ll be working with Jeffrey Schwartz, a Boston-based managing director at Bain.

Koppel didn’t respond immediately to a message from Endpoints News.

He must know the Cambridge/Boston hub intimately by this stage. The Harvard grad got his PhD in neuroscience at the University of Pennsylvania, with an MBA from Wharton.
