What we're see­ing at JPM so far: Up­com­ing BD moves, pipeline up­dates and more

SAN FRAN­CIS­CO — Af­ter two years of Covid-stalled vir­tu­al deal­mak­ing, the JP Mor­gan Health­care Con­fer­ence re­turned as an in-per­son event on Mon­day, with plen­ty of ex­cite­ment in the air.

At­ten­dees crammed in­to the West­in St. Fran­cis, clog­ging the hall­ways with few masks on faces, to lis­ten to phar­ma and biotech ex­ecs of­fer their lat­est pos­i­tive news and ex­pec­ta­tions for 2023. Bris­tol My­ers Squibb and Bio­gen drew stand­ing room on­ly crowds but of­fered few new up­dates. Pro­test­ers chant­ed briefly out­side the ho­tel ac­cus­ing Gilead of price-goug­ing their HIV drugs and left by lunchtime. The line for free lunch stretched hun­dreds of peo­ple long, wrap­ping around the con­fer­ence rooms.
