Summary

S�O PAULO-- Brazilian biologist Fernando de Castro Reinach has for more than a decade led a double life as a scientist and entrepreneur--a rarity in Brazil--and last year, he became general partner for life sciences at one of the country's largest venture capital funds. Reinach hopes his scientific acumen, political savvy, and disarming smile will help nurture his nation's nascent biotechnology industry.
