Executive Series | Partner to Survive: The Dealmakers’ Intentions Study Looking Ahead

In collaboration with
Campbell Alliance

The relationship between the pharmaceutical and biotech industries has never been more apparent.  They “Partner to Survive.”

For pharma, patent expirations and depleted pipelines have forced companies to look externally for growth. For biotech, limited financing opportunities and an uncertain regulatory and reimbursement landscape threaten the progress of innovative new therapies. In this environment, the competition for great assets has never been more intense.

Join fellow C-level executives in a discussion of the 2013 Campbell Alliance Dealmakers’ Intentions Study, the only forward-looking measure of deal-making intentions in the pharma and biotech industry.

During this interactive session, several key questions will be addressed to provide insight into what will likely drive the industry’s partnering efforts moving forward, including:

  • What therapeutic areas, mechanisms of action, and target market segments are of most interest to large pharma and biotech companies, and how has that changed over the past year?
  • Will over-crowding in some areas and scarcity in others lead to changes in deal-making priorities?
  • Given the competitive landscape described above, how are large pharma and biotech companies communicating their areas of interest, and how must emerging companies shift their approach to outreach?
  • What stage of development is ideal for partnering, and how does that differ from the in-licensor’s and out-licensor’s perspectives?
  • What business models are being considered by biotech companies to compete and grow in this environment?
