At first glance, Darren Kelly doesn’t seem to sleep. He’s the CEO of not one but two fibrosis-related biotechs, an entrepreneur in residence at Brandon Capital, Australia’s largest life sciences-focused VC firm, a director at the Centre for Eye Research Australia and—to top it all off—the associate dean of innovation and enterprise at the University of Melbourne.

So how does he do it all?

“I have an amazing team that’s worked with me for a long period of time, in terms of both the biotech and academic sector,” Kelly told FierceBiotech. “I wouldn’t be able to manage those different roles without my team.”
