Advent Life Sciences has closed two new funds with commitments totalling USD215 million.

Advent Life Sciences Fund III is the firm’s third dedicated life sciences venture capital fund raised from new Limited Partners (LPs), including British Patient Capital, as well as existing LPs.

Investing at seed, series A and beyond, the funds will primarily support companies to develop new therapeutics but will also continue Advent’s successful strategy of backing high-potential medical technology companies.

The partnership with Harrington Discovery Institute expands this paradigm by increasing access to world-class academic science with high medical and commercial promise.
