Focus Turns To Biotech Next Week
The week of January 10th is perhaps one of the biggest weeks in the biotechnology industry. Three significant healthcare conferences will take place in San Francisco, headlined by the 29th annual J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference held at the Westin St. Francis Hotel. The event is attended by the “Who’s Who” of the healthcare industry, with currently over 350 companies registered to attend. Two smaller conferences will also take place next week concurrent with the massive J.P. Morgan conference, the 4th annual OneMed Forum 2011 held at the Sir Francis Drake Hotel and the Biotech Showcase 2011 held at the Parc 55 Wyndham Hotel feature smaller companies from the biotech and medical device industries.
These conferences are an outstanding opportunity for biotech investors to meet face-to-face with both industry leaders and the next great pioneers in the healthcare field.
