Event summary

Cooley is a proud sponsor of the 7th Annual BFC Global Healthcare BD & Investment Conference. New out-licensing deals between Chinese life sciences and healthcare companies and global pharmaceutical companies have been happening almost every week during the past three years. These deals stem from emerging, remarkable scientific discoveries from top Chinese biotech and medtech companies, but there are still major challenges to overcome, including reimbursement, global product development, product commercialization, venture financing and entry to the global market.

This one-day conference promoted innovation, fostered cross-border collaboration, and created business development and investment opportunities for healthcare companies. Attendees from industry, government, academic institutions and investment firms discussed such key topics as:

  • The biotech capital market outlook and investment opportunities in the US and Asia
  • Licensing trends in 2023 among Asian and US pharmaceutical and biopharma companies
