Christoph Westphal, Longwood Fund general partner

Christoph West­phal bags a $170M Fund V, slat­ed to help breed some new biotechs at Long­wood

Christoph West­phal has closed the fifth in a se­ries of funds for Long­wood with $170 mil­lion to play with. That’s not a block­buster by any means in this day and age, but it will keep him in the high-pro­file po­si­tion he’s en­joyed for years now in biotech.

The Boston-based fund counts it­self as one of the biotech breed­ers in the busi­ness, spe­cial­iz­ing in star­tups. And West­phal’s in­volve­ment in some of the hub’s biggest suc­cess­es, in­clud­ing the ear­ly days at Al­ny­lam, has helped se­cure his rep in the com­mu­ni­ty.
