Introduction of Panel Topics -

1:25 PM

“Innovation in Global Healthcare - Are We Making Progress?” Panel discussion moderated by Kathleen Sharp, New York Times contributor and acclaimed author of Blood Feud, a true story about the drug Procrit, Amgen and Johnson & Johnson. In May 2008, the 61st World Health Assembly adopted Resolution WHA 61.21: Global strategy and plan of action on public health, innovation and intellectual property. The resolution was comprised of eight elements:

1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

Prioritizing research and development needs Promoting research and development Building and improving innovative capacity Transfer of technology Application and management of intellectual property to contribute to innovation and promote public health 6. Improving delivery and access 7. Promoting sustainable financing mechanisms 8. Establishing and monitoring reporting systems These elements were designed to promote innovation, build capacity, improve access and mobilize resources. What progress has been made over the last 3 years? What are the key global healthcare innovations that are on the horizon? What are the key issues facing cross-border operations and how do they differ by region? What contributions to solving critical healthcare issues can we expect from Europe, the Pac Rim and the Americas? Panelists: Michael Laznicka, CEO, Rapid Pharma Margaret Liu, Vice Chairman, International Vaccine Institute Ritesh Patel, Global Practice Leader – Digital, Chandler Chicco Companies Garen Staglin, Co-Chairman and Acting CEO, One Mind for Research Campaign Po Chi Wu, Adjunct Professor, Hong Kong University of Science & Technology


Agenda 2:10 PM

“Global Healthcare Regulatory Changes and the Impact on Innovation, Pricing, and Reimbursement in Emerging Healthcare Companies.” Panel discussion moderated by David Gershon, Senior Partner at Gershon Capital Investment Cie and Managing Director of M.M. Dillon & Co. Healthcare is going through a global transition as governments around the world reassess their healthcare infrastructure and the needs of their society. As part of this global process regulatory changes in the FDA, SFDA (China), and EMEA as well as other government agencies in BRIC countries such as Russia, India, and Brazil, are reshaping pricing, reimbursement, research and development, and access to new bio-pharmaceutical therapies and innovative medical devices. Understanding this process and identifying the emerging bio-pharma and medical device companies that will lead this process offers long-term opportunities for investors. As large shifts in the demand for healthcare emerge from countries with very large populations in emerging markets, healthcare is very likely to be a leading sector for investment. And this process is likely to be an extended opportunity, given the ever growing middle class and aging demographics in the emerging markets that will now be able to afford healthcare and will increasingly need western bio-pharma and medical device products. Panelists: Dr. Teo Forcht Dagi, Partner HLM Venture Partners Ittai Harel, General Partner Pitango Venture Capital Christopher McFadden, Managing Director Health Evolution Partners Tim Opler, Founder and Principal Torreya Partners Dr. Liz Stoner, Managing Director, MPM Capital Dr. Francis Waldvogel, Chairman Novartis Venture Fund

Agenda 3:05 PM

“Global Healthcare Companies’ Access to Funding and Impact of the Unsettled Financial Markets.” Panel discussion moderated by Michiel McCarty, CEO of M.M. Dillon & Co. The sources of growth capital have migrated from the traditional formula of A, B & C rounds from venture capital followed by a successful IPO towards a more varied multi-tiered approach involving strategic investors, hedge funds, family offices, licensing deals and M&A exits. The identification and access to the now diverse capital formation matrix is key in the development of healthcare companies. As more limited partners migrate away from traditional Biotech and healthcare venture funds, companies are presented with stark choices that need early analysis and board preparation. The role of other providers of capital and the cost benefit analysis is a topic that is paramount to healthcare companies and their investors. The process of tapping the varied sources is not fully understood by the marketplace as terms, pricing and tradeoffs evolve. The market-to-market requirements, as well as the unsettled public markets, have shifted focus away from the IPO as an exit strategy in favor of other more complex alternatives. Whether to build, buy, partner, sell, act slow or fast, plus the impact on returns and access to capital, are all critical factors in what has become a much more complex decision process. Panelists: Dr. Reinhard J. Ambros, Executive Director, Novartis Venture Funds Joe Limber, CEO, Prometheus Laboratories Olivier Litzka, Ph.D., Partner, Edmond de Rothchild Anat Naschitz, Managing Director, OrbiMed Michael Rabson, Partner, Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati
