Pharma and Biotech Leaders to Converge in China at Asia Pharma R&D Leaders 2010 Summit

SHANGHAI, Dec. 2 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- The world is going through extraordinary times; markets are in turmoil and uncertainty is part of many businesses and industries. It turns out that the pharma industry has been relatively immune to the economic downturn, because illness doesn't take a vacation.

During the midst of the difficult times this year, the pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson inaugurated an R&D center in Shanghai, the largest of its kind in Asia. A similar plan was laid down by its biotech counterpart Genzyme, who invested USD90 million in Beijing to construct the company's first ever research facility in Asia.
