Last week took us to San Francisco for the 10th Annual BIO Investor Forum, an investor conference focused on private and emerging public biotech companies. Multiple clients were involved in the conference either as presenters or panel participants discussing key issues affecting the biotechnology industry. Russo Partners was there to support their activities.
Clients participating on panels included Sutro Biopharma and GlobeImmune. William Newell, chief executive officer of Sutro Biopharma, a company with a biochemical protein synthesis technology platform enabling the design and development of novel proteins that previously have been inaccessible or difficult to produce, provided insight into the future of biosimilars and development strategies on the panel titled Biologics: Billions from BioBetters?
On another panel titled Immunotherapy: Heal Thyself, Timothy Rodell, M.D., president and chief executive officer of GlobeImmune, a company developing therapeutic vaccines for cancer and infectious diseases, discussed the promising future of immunotherapies.
Our clients Anaphore and Flexion Therapeutics also participated in the conference as presenting companies. Brinson Patrick Securities also took advantage of this conference for onsite networking and media opportunities.
At a rich networking event such as BIO Investor Forum, Russo Partners works to maximize our clients’ time spent at the conference by connecting the company executives to key members of the life sciences community.
We look forward to preparing our clients to deliver their “stories” at the next industry event.
