Windhover Announces the "Top Biopharma Projects to Watch"
Date:11/1/2011

BRIDGEWATER, New Jersey, November 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

- Listed companies to present at Therapeutic Area Partnerships conference, Boston, November 30 - December 2

Elsevier Business Intelligence and Windhover Conferences today announced the Top Projects to Watch list. The list delivers projects and companies with high-value assets for partnership, and with the potential to create future growth through investments in deals.

This year's list includes a Top 10 in each of six therapeutic areas: cardiovascular/metabolic, oncology, neuroscience, infectious diseases and inflammatory/autoimmune, plus a "hot space" category, including ophthalmology, orphan diseases, and women's health.  The selected companies have been screened using a strict set of judging criteria, including unmet medical need, market potential, diversity of indications, strong science, multi-level partnering opportunities (biotech and pharma), potential for new opportunities beyond initial indications, and corporate stability.  

The top 10 projects chosen to present in each therapeutic area are selected by a panel of independent experts who screen hundreds of compounds and weigh their potential as future products.  These independent experts include Campbell Alliance, NI Research, Healogix, Wolpert Associates, Cobbs Creek Healthcare and Herndon Associates.  Senior business development executives from most of the major pharmaceutical firms as well as management from innovative biotechnology firms schedule one-on-one partnering meetings.

The complete list of all projects to date is available at http://www.windhover.com/taprojects. Each project has been hand-selected by Windhover's elite selection panel to ensure a high-quality slate of presenters.

"This year's list is handpicked in the six hottest therapeutic areas," said David Cassak, VP, Content, for Elsevier Business Intelligence's publications. "Many of the companies we selected in the past have gone on to do big deals, and we expect the same from this years' companies.  90% of the companies haven't presented at major partnering events this year."

Attendees of the Therapeutic Area Partnerships conference benefit from expert analysis of trends and opportunities in licensing and M & A dealmaking, presentations by the industry's foremost thought leaders and decision makers, actionable information on emerging, innovative companies and key licensable projects, strategies to finance and commercialize new products.
