BI Office Hours offers life science companies and entrepreneurs individual attention in an informal ‘office hours’ atmosphere. Designed as a consultative ‘round table’ meeting, this pioneering mentoring initiative ‘lifts the lid’ on how a big pharma company works and it provides access to expertise, an industry perspective and feedback to emerging life-science businesses.
While deliberately not being a partnering meeting, BI Office Hours gives participants direct access to BI’s management and know-how (science and business) to find out what are the critical factors a pharma partner is looking for in terms of, for example, therapeutic concept validation, ‘key’ experiments, therapeutic modalities (small molecules, antibodies, others), animal models, patient selection biomarkers, clinical development, landscape positioning, and reimbursement considerations.
