Strategic Alliances: Pot of Gold or Pretty Poison?

  • CIC Cambridge, Havana, 5th floor 1 Broadway Cambridge, MA, 02142 United States (map)

Strategic Alliances are the lifeblood for many nascent biotech companies. By partnering with Big Pharma, young biotech companies can find validation for their science, discover non-dilutive financing, understand product, market and reimbursement dynamics, and harness external scientific resources without adding personnel. A collaboration with Big Pharma can also attract vital venture capital necessary to finance the company through drug development and early clinical trials.

Join us on June 28th to hear a panel of business development experts explore various research and collaboration structures, from options to license to comprehensive collaboration partnerships. We will discuss various licensing vehicles, the importance of concise fields of use descriptions, sample economics, and conventional transaction structures. Our panel includes the following experts:

John Hession, Partner, Morse Barnes-Brown Pendleton - @morsebarnes

Stan Chalvire, Partner, Morse Barnes-Brown Pendleton - @stanchalvire

Jennifer Davagian, President & CEO, Cristcot - @J_Davagian

Kerry Flynn, Vice President, Chief IP Counsel, Vertex Pharmaceuticals

John Tagliamonte, Business Development Lead & Advisory Board, WntRx Pharmaceuticals - @JohnTagliamonte
