Venture investment for the Life Sciences sector grew by 7 percent in dollars year over year to $1.4 billion.  Deal volume, however, declined 8 percent compared to the first quarter of 2010, dropping to 164 deals in Q1 2011.  The quarterly deal count represents the lowest number in a single quarter since the first quarter of 2009.
