Topic Description
Have you been wondering what’s behind the less than rosy trends picture for the Bay Area pharmaceutical, molecular diagnostics and medical device space this past year? And why the Boston cluster seems to be enjoying more good news lately than California? Audrey Erbes will discuss the factors, trends and events driving the paradigm shifts in financing, R&D development and staffing levels along with providing the potential outlook for the future. She will share some promising new efforts that potentially will lead to positive changes in the sectors that we would like to see.
