Right. No one really speaks on biotech PE and generally curious who the leaders are, etc.

Sat across some Biotech PE funds. Big players are Bain LS, Blackstone LS, Sixth Street does some and Patient Square is very active in the space. I would not most Biotech investors aren't investing for full control.
