This panel discussion will cover topics including rationale-driving key deals of 2013 and continued trends into 2014 as well as aligning deal structures with corporate strategic goals and how the heightened risk environment is affecting deals. The pros and cons of regional deal-making will also be discussed. There are key questions to innovative partnering – at what stage or what type of data makes the asset most attractive to a buyer? How do you find and decide who a good partner is and what determines the value
of the deal? What preparations should you make before the deal and what kind of terms besides the financials should you take into consideration? And perhaps most importantly, what are the criteria to attract investors? Come join this important and timely discussion.
Panel participants will include Anne Altmeyer, Vice President of Business Development and Licensing at Novartis; Varavani Dwarki, Vice President and Worldwide Head of Alliance Management Oncology and NCI Liaison at Sanofi; Catherine-Anne Pickering, Head of Oncology Licensing and Global Business Development at Merck Serono; Shakti Narayan, Senior Director of Transactions at Johnson & Johnson Innovation Center; Reginald Seeto, Head of Partnering and Strategy at MedImmune; Hamza Suria, President and Chief Executive Officer of AnaptysBio
