The biotech-pharma partnership recipe

At no point in the history of drug research have biotech companies and Big Pharma been so closely aligned. Pharma companies have been turning more and more often to biotechs for the kind of cutting-edge technology they need to replenish pipelines. Biotechs routinely build partnership pacts with pharma into their business plans. And the disarray in global markets has made that interrelationship more important than ever.

On October 27 at 2 p.m. EST, FiercePharma and FierceBiotech will present a webinar taking a detailed look at current trends influencing the dealmaking process. We’ve gathered some of the industry’s most experienced players to examine how developers can land the best deals for their companies.
