From the event site: “Successful life sciences companies integrate patient needs into all aspects of their company strategy. From their business plan and funding, to their research and development, to clinical trials and reimbursement models, the patient-driven approach accelerates the advancement of innovative treatments.

CALBIO2012 is a statewide conference produced by BayBio and BIOCOM that brings together the life sciences sector in California and beyond: company executives and innovators, government, medical research and disease foundations, university transfer offices, philanthropists and investors.

Built on the synergy between two leading life sciences clusters, CALBIO2012 identifies best practices and new models and fosters collaborations in research, development and product commercialization.”
