One could make an easy argument that the action in San Francisco this week is as good a prognosticator as there is for the financial health of our industry and it will set the tone for the life sciences in 2011. Whether or not you give the conference(s) that much influence, one fact is undeniable: the bartenders in San Francisco will come out on top this week.

Follow all of the action (us included) at Twitter hashtag #jpm11, or if you’re attending drop us a line and meet us “under the clock”… Just go easy with your elbows in the crowded lobby, would you?
