From the birthplace of the biotechnology revolution here in the San Francisco Bay Area, this forum will give us an outward looking perspective on the prospects for the industry in a global context.
The panel will collectively address the following questions: How have the economic crisis and aftermath changed the way people do business in the biotech industry? How is the emerging market impacting the developed one? What are the notable cross border transactions? What is the key to survival/success in today's global economy? Which local government has notable/smart initiatives? What can we learn from these initiatives?
