It expects to make around 30 investments, in companies based in North America and Europe; each investment will range from $10-75m. Carl Gordon, a partner at OrbiMed and co-head of global private equity, stated: “The increasing pace of translation of science to medicine creates exciting opportunities for the Fund in areas such as oncology, central nervous system disease, and gene editing.” OrbiMed currently has around 40 medtech-related investments in its portfolio, with a strong focus on orthopedics and cardiology among its device companies.
